Reshaping the future

BEECH

Welcome to Beech Class!

Welcome to Beech Class 2019-2020.

Staff in this class: Ms Charlotte Wilkinson. Mrs Jan Blackmore & Miss Parsons.

Term 6

In Beech class this term we have been working hard on our topic ‘Beachcombers’.

We have learnt about the UK’s beaches and seaside towns, the animals we may find on our shores and in our oceans and we even took a virtual trip to an aquarium! Learning has been a bit different as we have worked mostly on our chrome books and on Google classroom. Our computer skills have definitely improved! Josh has been a Google classroom wizard! He regularly updates us with his projects at home. Miss Wilkinson read us stories through video and Joe and Dom enjoyed video calling with a few of our class who are at home too. We miss having our whole class together and cannot wait to celebrate when we see each other again!

Term 1

Welcome back to Term 1 and our all new Beech class! What a fantastic start to the year, the adults who work in Beech could not be more proud of the mature attitude the class is showing to our learning.

This term, our topic is Heroes and Villains. From Spiderman to Cruella DeVil, Batman and Thanos! We are exploring different musical terms such as how to use our voice as an instrument and will be creating our own superhero rap! We are also thinking about the key qualities of a hero and our real-life heroes we may see every day.

On a Tuesday, we are lucky enough to take part in Judo lessons! It is so much fun an teaches us all about respect.

    

We’re looking forward to the rest of the year!
