Welcome to Beech class
We are a mixed class predomiately Key Stage 2. We have 5 young and aspiring boys ready for adventure! We have Katy Griffin, the class teacher aswell as Catherine and Emily who are learning support assistants. This year we are determined to learn lots through play, trips and visits and class based learning.
We are continuing with our World War 2 topic. They will learn how war impacted on families. They will also learn about the significance of the D-Day landings and the events leading up to the end of the war. There will be opportunities to write coded messages and make their very own special exhibition as the group recreate VE day parties with flags, songs and party food.
In maths, the children will working on addition and subtraction. We started this the week before half term. The children have been using Column addition and the expanded method to add and subtract numbers. They will also work out change from given values and reduce numbers by percentages.
In English this term, we will be learning to read and write poems, including kennings. The children will explore devices such as simile, alliteration and onomatopoeia. Study word classes: nouns, adjectives, verbs, and expanded noun phrases.
P.E is every Thursday so please ensure your child has their kit. Forest schools is every Tuesday.
We will send out newsletters every half term so please keep an eye out on the school website. Should you wish to receive a paper copy, please let the office know. You will also receive a curriculum grid every half term; this outlines what your child will be learning in school. Although we do not set formal homework, supporting your child with times tables, spellings and reading will always help to accelerate progress
