Welcome to Beech Tree Class!
A warm welcome back to parents and children from
Beech Tree Class.
We have only been back a short while and already have been really busy.
PE Kits reminder: This term our PE lessons will be on Monday and Wednesday. If your child attends an after-school sports club, please return their PE kit to school the next day. The complete PE kit should be in school everyday.
Snow! Snow! Snow!
In English, this term we are writing our own version of Little Red Riding Hood. We have been learning to use interesting adjectives to describe the characters and setting of our own story. Once the stories are finished children will be reading them to the Nursery children.
In Maths we have been learning about Adding and Subtracting two numbers and solving simple word problems. We have, also, been learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We went on a shape hunt around our school garden and were looking at our local environment and identified some 2D and 3D shapes.
In History we have been learning about how houses have changed through time. At the end of the topic we are going to create our rooms, in the 'olden days' style, using recycled shoe boxes. Later on we are going to compare these to 'modern day' rooms.
In Science, our topic is 'Materials'. Children have been looking at different materials and how they are used to make different objects. In our Gardening lessons children have classified materials as 'natural' or 'man-made'.
The children have been working so hard in all areas and should be extremely proud. Keep up the terrific work Beech Tree class!
