Year 1 2023 - 2024

Hello and welcome to Year One. We have lots of fun and exciting activities planned for your time in Year One.  Please use the tab at the top of the page to find out more about our learning each term.

If you have any queries or concerns about your child's learning then please do not hesitate to speak to us, either before or after school.  

Maple Class

The class teachers in Maple Class are Mrs Elliott on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Brehaut from Wednesday to Friday. They are supported by Mrs Basford. Mrs Lewis works in Maple class for some of the week.

The class teacher in Holly class is Mrs Oakley. She is supported by Miss Hodnett.

Mrs Crowther will continue to teach in Holly class on a Monday. 



PE is on a Monday for Holly class and Thursday for Maple class.  Your child will need to arrive to school in their PE kit. Your child needs to bring their school uniform in a bag to change into after the lesson. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit. This includes a red Beechwood PE t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps. 


Starting the Day

The classroom doors will open from 8:40am and the children are expected to be in school by 8:50am. As a school we are aiming for 96% attendance so please ensure that you are in on time.

If you arrive after the class doors shut, you will need to go to the school office.


Snack and Lunch

The cost of snack is £3 per week. This needs to be paid via the school Gateway app. No cash will be accepted by staff. This is for toast and a drink or the alternative hot snack (pizza, bagel, teacake). If you wish your child to have a snack from home, please make sure it isn't chocolate, crisps or fizzy drinks - thank you.

We do offer the children free fruit each day as well, please encourage your child to accept it.

Just a reminder, your child is also entitled to a free school dinner every day whilst in Key Stage 1.

Each day they can choose from our hot dinner menu or a jacket potato.



Please label all uniform including coats, P.E. kit, shoes, hats and jumpers. It is extremely difficult to locate lost uniform if it does not have a name on it. We will be labelling these items if they are not already labelled. Jumpers will need to have the Beechwood logo.

As a school, we take safeguarding very seriously. This includes internet safety and we are very aware that many children enjoy spending time on tablets, phones and even playing with Alexa!
