Welcome to Beech Class Year 2/Year 1
A welcome to Beech Class by class teacher Mrs Witts.
I am Mrs Witts, the class teacher for Beech. I have had the privilege of teaching children at Woodchester for nearly 20 years. With my experienced Teaching Assistant Mrs Wilkins we teach a mixed class of Year 2 and some of Year 1 children. We support and nurture children as they move from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum.
In Beech our days are very busy, sharing ideas with talk partners, working in small groups and learning as a whole class. We use our interactive white board to engage our children in class but also spend much time in our outdoor learning area, where children can discover and learn in fun, practical ways. Our classroom shares a connecting door with Ash class which makes it very easy to work collaboratively and ensure that Year 1 children are provided with the same learning experiences.
Alongside everything we do, we encourage our children to value and care for each other as they become more independent in their learning.
