Another busy term this Summer in Beech class.
As part of the ‘Ban Plastics Campaign’, Beech class wrote letters to our milk supplier in order to persuade them into looking at alternatives to using plastic straws, such as paper straws or tear off corners. Beech looked at the damage plastic is doing doing to our environment and wildlife, and wanted to ‘do their bit’ to help. As a result, the milk company are now in discussions with their manufacturers to discuss alternatives, so watch this space. Well done Beech class and to see some of the letters and how good the handwriting was, please click on the gallery of photos below!
Mrs Legg is also organising another Beach Clean as part of the ‘Family Walking Club’ this term, alongside ‘Keep Purbeck Tidy’.
Beech class planted sunflower seeds as part of their science topic - Plants. The sunflowers grew so well they had to be sent home to be replanted into bigger pots. The children have said that they are nearly as tall as them!
The Daily Mile is continuing and has been a huge success. We had a visit from the local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) who ran the mile with us and had a chat to a few children to see what they enjoyed about it. Very kindly, the Purbeck Sports Centre donated swimming vouchers to children who were successfully taking part in the mile and 2 of the winners were from Beech class! We have some future running stars in Beech!
We have an organised trip to Leeson House this term, where the children will have the opportunity to take part in pond dipping where they will find newts and Dragonfly Lavae amongst other fascinating creatures.
We will also be using our local ‘Langton Nature Trail’, to find mini-beasts and identify what we have found.
Beech class also have their class assembly on ‘Healthy Lifestyles’, so we are busy preparing for this. I am sure it will be a complete success.
