Welcome to Beech Class

Weekly update 20/05/22

This week in Beech class in science we have been learning about seaside habitats. The children really enjoyed looking at what a seaside habitat is and what animals and plants live there. They then found it really interesting to compare it to an ocean habitat and some animals and plants that live there. In computing we have been learning how to program a robot! The children have been learning the different buttons and what their job is. They have had great fun following instructions and getting to a specific point with the robots. Well done this week to Alan for receiving the gold award. Alan has been working really had with his team work. He has been helping his classmates so much inside and outside of lesson time. Well Done Alan!

This week in Beech class the children have been writing their newspaper report. We were writing a report about the Queen's missing knickers. The children were great at retelling what had happened and even imagining how the Queen may have felt to get in a quote or two! In science we have been looking at microhabitats. We went exploring for mini beasts and made a list of the minibeasts we could find. We also spoke about the different types of microhabitats to make sure we looked in all the best places. Well Done this week to Imogen for getting our gold award. Imogen has been really struggling with motivation but her resilience has really shone through and has been reflected in her amazing work. Well Done Imogen!

This week in Beech class we have been learning have to read and make half past. We started my making half past using the skills we had already learnt from making o'clock. The children at first struggled with reading and being able to tell which hour it was for half past because of the hour hand being in between two numbers but with practice they got it! In science we have been looking at animals and their habitats. We were looking at which animals and plants live in habitats local to us. The children did really well at identifying different plants and animals in certain habitats. This week our Gold Award went to Phoebe. Phoebe is a very caring and kind member of class and always looks out for everyone! She has amazing empathy. Well Done Phoebe!

This week in Beech Class we have been learning about the story the Queens Knickers. In the story the Queen loses her knickers. The children were really excited to see missing posters and came up with some wonderful questions to ask about the missing knickers. In maths we have been looking at time. The children have been learning about the passage of time and then making time to the hour on a clock. They really struggled at first but doing it alongside the story the bad tempered ladybird really helped them to remember where their clock hands needed to be.

This week in beech class we have been looking at money in maths. The children have been working hard to understand the value of different coins and how to count in coins accurately. We have had great fun pretending to run shops and restaurants to better understand how far our money goes. In English we started a new book called "Out and About" by Shirley Hughes. The book is a number of poems all about the seasons. We have been focusing on the season Spring, so many children have shared lovely ideas of what we can see in Spring. This week our gold award went to Matthew. Matthew showed great creativity and imagination in his own version of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. His version had a monkey instead of a tiger who was very cheeky! Well done Matthew!
