Welcome to Beech Class

Class Teacher: Mrs Johnson

Welcome to Beech Class.

This half term Beech’s topic is ‘Mountain Ranges’. Through this topic we will be locating the many different mountain ranges from around the world, looking at their characteristics, identifying similarities and differences especially in the weather and surrounding features. A case study of Nepal will be a focus this half term and take into account the types of structures that are constructed to sustain life surrounding these mountain ranges.

 

Our class novels this half term include Mr Penguin and the Lost Treasure and some classic fables from around the world. We will be using these texts to improve our creative writing, to create diary entries, explanation writing and poetry. These texts will also continue to help our child to discuss and develop inference and deduction skills.

 

We have P.E on Wednesday and Thursday. Please can all children wear the appropriate school PE clothing and suitable footwear for being both inside for gymnastics on a Thursday and outside for badminton on a Wednesday.

 

Children will receive homework on a Friday that will be uploaded onto TEAMS. They will have a curriculum piece of work (for example, maths, English or topic) and they will be asked to complete 10 mins everyday of reading as well as the weekly spellings for their current level. Please help your child to check their Teams account each week in order to access the home learning task that has been set.  There will also 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.
