Welcome to Beaufort Class
Our teachers are Miss Hall (Beaufort Class) and Ms O’Callaghan (Fireflies). Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Fletcher (Beaufort) and Mrs North (Fireflies).
We are so lucky to have a large spacious classroom and we are developing our very own outdoor area too. Lots of our learning still takes place outdoors as we change from learning from the EYFS to the National Curriculum.
Our learning is topic based, and you can view our curriculum map for an overview of our learning for the year. We think our topics are really exciting and give us lots of opportunities to develop all our skills.

How you can help at home
Children MUST complete homework on a weekly basis, using the homework framework - choose one piece weekly and submit by Friday. Support with daily reading and helping your child to learn their spellings which will be tested each Friday.
Remember, while your child has a set reading book change day we are happy to change books as often as required, put it in the box in the morning!
