Beech Class 2018/19

Teacher: Mrs H Wright
Teaching Assistants: Miss L Bundy, Miss K Rose and Mrs M Charles
 
Welcome to our class page!
 
So far this term we have enjoyed a range of exciting activities linked with our theme of 'Fire, fire!'.  At the start of the term we learned many interesting facts about the lives of people during the time of the Great Fire of London.  We have since created diaries (inspired by Samuel Pepys) and non-fiction texts to inform others about different occupations and reasons for the fire spreading so quickly.
 
In Maths, we have been extending our Place Value knowledge and addition skills.  We also are practicing hard to earn our passport certificates and learn our times tables facts by memory.  
 
Other highlights include our 'Forest Adventures' each Thursday afternoon with Mrs Rees - we are lucky to live in such a wonderful area and have the opportunity to learn Science and Geography outside.  We are also very busy making our own 'Beech' classroom textile banner with Mrs Bishop - We have made a good start at designing and making our felt Beech leaves - we can't wait to show you the finished piece that will hang proudly above our door!

Cross curricular Food Technology:
 
Y3 children have made links with their English Story Writing Unit 'Pumpkin Soup' by Helen Cooper in order to learn about Food in DT.   In Maths lessons, the children also looked at statistics and data handling for deciding popular soup flavours.  On Friday 16th November, the children had a great time with Mrs Ball and Mrs Gilmore who helped them to learn more about how to be hygienic in the kitchen, how to cut food safely and how to weigh/measure quantities of ingredients accurately.  The children did a marvellous job, looking at the features of clear instructions and they discussed where food is grown as well as seasonality of produce. 
 
Their Soup tasted delicious!
