Welcome to Beech Class 2021-2022!
We just wanted to give you a little bit of information about Beech Class.
In Beech Class you are very lucky and have two teachers. Mrs Kelly works on a Monday, Tuesday and a Wednesday and Mrs Strutt works Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We work very hard together to make sure that you have lots of fun whilst you are learning. We also have some ladies that are in our class to help us...you may have seen Mrs Davis and Mrs Chapman around school and if you are coming to us from Nursery you will know Miss Clifford very well. We are very excited to work together as a new team.
Our next 'big question' is 'I wonder...how to stay healthy?' The children have already discussed the questions they want to find the answers too. Ada asked 'what is good for my body? What is not good for my body?' Nevaeh asked 'Where does food come from?' - some of the children said from the shop but they were not sure where the shop got the food from.
We had a great time exploring our topic and 'big question' last term and we can't wait to see where this topic takes us. In the Spring term, we have thought all about Elmer and colour mixing. It was a bit tricky making sure we had the correct colours to mix the colour we wanted but we were resilient like 'Tiana' and continued to try. We have also been thinking about churches in RE. Everyone was amazed by the stained glass windows so we thought about our favourite stories and made them into windows. It took a lot of concentration but the finished pictures were beautiful!
We would like to say a huge thank you to all the Parents/Carers that supported us with our 'Virtual Christmas Fayre'. It was a huge success and the children have absolutely loved buying the new toys for our classroom. It was a little tricky to negotiate which toys we really wanted and which we just liked the look of but we managed it in the end. Have a look on Class Dojo to see what we managed to buy.
Below is our Parent/Carer Forecast which tells your grown ups all the things that we will be learning. This will be updated with our PE day and a copy sent out on Class Dojo too. If you have any questions please feel free to ask, you can do this at the door and using Class Dojo. We also have Evidence Me that you can add pictures of your child to if they are in Reception and we can link those to our curriculum and talk to your child about them. If your child is in Year One...you can add photos to your child's Class Dojo page and we will be able to see those too!
Keep checking back on this page for pictures of what we have been up to!
Children that are self isolating:
If you are at home isolating please see the menu below of activities for you to do. We also have a selection of activities on Purple Mash too. Please submit any work on Class Dojo so that we can mark it and see what you have been up to! We are missing you all!
Today we have been having lots of fun - the EASTER BUNNY has been and left lots of eggs. We have been on a Easter egg hunt, making spring pictures, writing lists and making chicks.
We learnt about the Easter story. We talked about what Christians believe and how they celebrate Easter.
We found out that we see lots of eggs at Easter as this is a symbol of new life.
We also talked about why we are wearing yellow and blue today. The children could confidently tell us that we were raising money to help people in Ukraine to buy food and water.
We are waiting for the rain to stop to continue our sponsored walk. Check back here for more pictures later...
The children were really excited on World Book Day. They enjoyed looking at each others costumes and pretended to be that character. We talked about the competition to find 'Where's Wally'. The children were really keen to find Wally so we decided to go on a 'Wally Hunt' around school. We went through the 'quiet library' and the children decided to tiptoe. We then went down the corridor and the children chose to do giant steps. In the 'noisy hall' the children stomped! We eventually found Wally in Beech Class!
The children talked about Pancake Day. They wanted to have pancakes. Beech Class decorated there pancakes and then tasted them.
Billie said, 'I didn't like my pancake.'
Raissa said, 'They was sweet.'
Maja said, 'I put strawberry on.'
Ellie said, 'I liked it. It was yummy.'
Oliver said 'I didn't like it.'
For 'Dress to Express Day' Beech Class made flowers and discussed how we had grown. The children talked about something they can do now and something they would like to be able to do in the future!
Reading in Beech Class
Please see below lots of useful information about reading at home. I have also attached the letter with the password and username that you can use to access different books on Oxford Owl. We are trying to encourage the children to read at home with you and practise the sounds that they have learnt. The benefits of reading are huge and it underpins so many other areas of the curriculum, including, enhancing the children's imagination for when they are reading.
Thank you in advance for your support with this.
Mrs Fenton and Mrs Strutt
Our PE day is Monday. You need to bring a P.E kit for this on a Monday and leave it in school all week.
