Welcome to Beech Class

Parents Meeting Presentation

Weekly Update 15.10.21

This week in Beech Class we have been continuing on with the story "The Magic Porridge Pot". The children worked really hard at retelling the story to their partner and then writing a recount. This afternoon we did art around the topic the great fire of London. The children created some very dramatic collages using sugar paper and tissue paper. They recreated how the fire would look behind the houses and tried to use the tissue paper and sugar paper in different ways to get a textured effect.

Weekly update 08.10.21

This week in Beech Class we have been exploring the lovely story of "The Magic Porridge Pot. Unfortunately the pot in our class was not magic and only had some old oats at the bottom. In Maths we have been learning how to add two amounts together. We have been using part part whole model, 10's frames and so much more to help to see what is happening. We have then been trying to write number sentences. Have a lovely weekend!

Term 1 Week 5 

This week in Maths the children in Beech Class have been looking at addition. We have been learning how to use a part part whole model and how to change a part part whole into a number sentence. In science we have been looking at why certain materials are used for certain objects. We have been exploring the object and then its materials properties and then why that is good for the objects purpose.

Term 1 Week 4

This week in English we have started reading the story of The Gingerbread Man. We have been looking at instructions and explaining that we need to be clear and to the point when giving instructions. The children experimented with their instruction giving, through asking Mrs Smith to make a jam sandwich and it was harder than it looked. In PSHE we have been exploring the emotion loneliness and the other emotions attached to feeling lonely and left out. The children then came up with some lovely ideas of what they can do if they feel lonely and how they can help a friend who might be feeling that way.

Term 1 Week 3 

This week in Beech Class we have been enjoying the story of the three little pigs. We have been taking on the role of either pig one or the wolf from the story and writing a diary entry about our day. We created a list of key features for a dairy and retold the story from the wolf and the pigs point of view. In Science we have been looking at materials. The children have been looking at where materials come from to then decide if they are natural or man-made. 

Hello my name is Miss Jones and I am the teacher in Beech class.

This is my first year at CPS and I am incredibly excited to have this amazing opportunity to work with everyone at Carterton Primary School.
