Welcome to Beech Class


Summer Term - They came, they saw, they conquered


Beech class have really embraced our Roman Topic this term. We have done lots of artwork, designing and making our own mosaics as well as trying different ways of marbling. We are now using all of our artwork to create model Roman homes. Some children have made a Domus - where a middle class Roman family would have lived, some have made a villa, where the richest Romans would have resided.


We've spent a lot of time in the ICT suite researching the amazing life of Julius Caesar - did you know that he was kidnapped by pirates when he was young!? We are writing biographies and spending time editing these and adding pictures on the computers so that we can display them in the classroom.


In English we have taken inspiration from the Asterix books. The children have come up with some really imaginative story characters and made their own comic strip stories about an unlikely hero saving his village from the invading Romans.


We look forward to seeing what they have produced in their homework projects.

French Market Day


The Children all really enjoyed our French Market day. They experienced a French bakery, butchers, greengrocers, library and clothes shop. They practiced lots of French vocabulary and learned about the similarities and differences in our cultures.

Violent Volcanoes!

We made our own 3-D volcanoes in class out of plastic bottles and paper mache, then we took them outside and erupted them. Check out the video here.
(The video takes a few seconds to start because Mr Hawes is a bit rubbish at editing videos but bear with it!)

Wellbeing week - Daily mile and yoga exercises

Using cake to help us learn fractions. Everything is better with cake!

We are enjoying finding out about World War 1 as part of our

Autumn 2018 term topic: 


We have been using lots of different resources to help us to complete calculations independently.

In year 3 science we have been learning about how different animals have different types of skeletons. We thought about animals such as crabs and beetles who have exo-skeletons on the outside of their bodies and we had a go at making some exo-skeletons for ourselves! We decided that our designs should cover our heads and chests so that our brains and vital organs would be protected. We also tried to design them so we could move easily - this was not so easy to do but we had fun trying!

Thank you so much for all the fabulous homework projects that we have received. A special thank you to all the parents and grandparents who have clearly put in a lot of time and effort to help the children make some truly wonderful models, factfiles and medals. I hope you enjoyed making them as much as we have enjoyed sharing them.
