Beech Class

Our Year 1 class at Wirksworth Church of England Infant School is taught by Mrs Birch on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and by Mrs Essex on Weds afternoon, Thursday and Friday.

Teaching Assistants who work in our class are Mrs Kay, Mrs Repton and Mrs King on different days.

Beech class is in the terrapin classroom outside the main school building. We have a lot of fun creating and learning together.
