Welcome to Nidd Class  

Year 1 and Reception

The Year 1 and Reception children work as a team together.

Our Teachers

Our teacher is Mrs Beaumont and we also have Miss Barker, Mrs Taylor and Miss Robotham.

Every morning we come into class and self-register then have a go at our morning challenge.

We then come together as a class to do the days of the week and the weather and check in.

After check in we have our Literacy session where we find out about lots of interesting things such as Castles, Pirates and many more! Following that we all choose where we would like to do our independent learning.  We have so many challenges in each area there is always lots to keep us learning.

We have a daily phonics session every morning and in the Reception class we have Ginger Bear.

Before lunch we have our Big Maths Beat That challenge.  During the afternoon we will do Maths, Guided reading as well as more time for independent learning in Reception and other curriculum areas in Year 1 such as Science, Art and Geography.

At home time we enjoy a story all together.

Other activities

We are very lucky to have our Forest Schools area in school and we all have the opportunity to explore this area, so don’t forget your wellies and waterproof coat!

Mr Jeff teaches PE on a Monday  We will also have an extra session of PE each week which may not always fall on the same day, so please make sure you have your PE kit in school at all times.

We also have Mrs McCartney who teaches us Music on a Wednesday.


Dennis’ Challenge

Each week Challenges in the classroom and all the children try their best to complete all the challenges so that they can fill their buckets with stars.  We would like help at home too, it is important that time is spent at home every day reading at home and practising sounds and tricky words.

Early Excellence Reception class

We are currently updating our learning journeys and will very soon be launching our new profiles.  All the children have their own Learning Journey folder which can be viewed securely online by parents any time anywhere. In order for you to be able to see and share in your child’s learning, you will need to have provided us with an email address.  This is a fantastic way of sharing information between home and school and we look forward to seeing those postcards.  A letter inviting you to provide your email and set a password will be provided to you.


Please remember to look on our Twitter feed to see what we are doing in EYFS – please look in Google at @Cammy17


If you can spare any time to come into the setting to help with baking, reading, woodwork or even just to spend time with the children learning in the setting please let us know!

As always, thank you for your continued support in your child’s journey through school.
