Welcome to Beech Class

Class Teacher: Mrs Johnson

Teaching Assistant: 

Welcome to Beech Class.

This half term Beech’s topic is ‘Ancient Egypt’ – where we will be looking at what life was like in Ancient Egypt, from religion to everyday life and geographically locate Egypt on a map to identify surrounding areas and look at the physical features. Our lessons will be centred around this theme from mummifying tomatoes, designing and creating canopic jars to sculpting our own cat mummies.

 

Our class novels this half term include Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith and Madam Pamplemousse and Her Incredible Edibles. We will be using these texts to improve our creative writing, to create recounts, reports and longer instructional pieces of work, and to encourage discussion and develop inference and deduction skills.

 

We have P.E on Wednesday and Friday. Please can all children have the appropriate P.E kit in school on those days, especially in the colder months when they may require jogging bottoms or leggings.

 

Children will receive homework on a Friday, which will include spellings, times-tables and a task linked to one of the curriculum areas. Please continue to encourage your children to read daily as it will have a very positive effect on their learning. There will be an expectation for your child to log onto Doodle Maths and Times Tables Rock Stars regularly during the week, as it is an excellent resource to use at home and they really help to reinforce new maths concepts.

 

Thank you very much for your support.  If you have any queries, feel free to call or email the school office.
