Beech

Spring Term 2020

Picture 1

It has been a busy start to the new term in Beech Class and the children have really hit the ground running after the Christmas break.

 

Our new topic this term is Protecting Our Planet for the Future and so far the children have really enjoyed learning about rain forests and finding them on a world map. As we go on through the term we will be finding out about pollution, deforestation and the surrounding issues and I am sure the children will continue to be passionate in their approach to finding solutions.

 

We have our class assembly coming up just before half term as well so we will be starting to practice this soon. I am really looking forward to seeing the children showcase some of the fabulous work they have done this year and I hope that many of the parents and families will be able to join us for this occasion.

Auden Dare, the main character in our class text, cannot see colour. We wrote kennings to describe some of the most colourful things we could think of...

AUTUMN TERM Beech Class 2019-2020

 

Mr Hawes, Mrs King, Mrs Guest and Miss Codd are all very excited to be working with the children in Beech Class this year. We've got a few familiar faces from last year and a whole bunch of new faces too, but we think that we have a really nice group of children and we are looking forward to working together to achieve our personal best this year.

Autumn term - With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

 

We have begun thinking about our key concepts of wealth, power and responsibility which tie in with our topic this term of Ancient Egypt.

 

We began by finding definitions of each word in the dictionary and finding synonyms in the thesaurus. We then discussed what each concept meant to us.

 

These key concepts will underpin all of the work we do across the curriculum this term.

The whole school thoroughly enjoyed our visit from a BMX World Champion. We learnt about perseverance, resilience, following your dreams and Mr Hawes learnt about going out of his comfort zone to learn a BMX stunt in front of the whole school! indecision

We have been using lots of resources in maths so that we can explain how we find the answers to calculations

In English we have begun working on instruction lists. We decided that recipes are types of instruction lists, so we wrote a set of instructions together for baking cupcakes.

In maths, we practised measuring out different masses and volumes so that we could measure out our ingredients accurately. 

Later on this week we will have a go at following our instructions. We will evaluate how effective the instruction list was and (hopefully) get to eat some yummy cupcakes!
