Welcome to Beech Class' page. We are thrilled to have the children all back in school and they have done us proud with their efforts and their attitude to learning.
Our topic this term is Crime and Punishment and our class text is Wisp: a story of hope.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed the book that we have been studying and have been completing Talk4Writing activities to help them learn the story and explore the emotions of the characters. They have also begun to adapt the story to create their own version of it and I am looking forward to reading what they produce.
As part of our topic we have begun exploring crime and punishment through the ages. The children have enjoyed hearing about some of the gruesome punishments that people suffered in Roman, Anglo Saxon and Tudor times.
We have had some brilliant class debates around our key concepts of justice, consequences and segregation. The children especially enjoyed deating whether Robin Hood was a hero or a villain and they came up with some really good arguments to back up their opinions.
All in all it has been a great start to the year so well done to all of the children!
