Children in Beech Class have a fantastic learning space and are lucky to be in the skilled and experienced care of Mrs Legg and Mrs Lewis this year, with a number of Teaching Assistants also on hand, including Mrs Glassock and Mrs Wey.
Beech Class topic for the first half of the Autumn term term was ‘Explorers’. We have been learning about Christopher Columbus and Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton, and linking our Explorers topic to other areas of the curriculum. Beech class has already been on an exciting expedition using an orienteering map to discover famous landmarks. We also explored the local Nature Trail to discover what has been growing in the orchard. As part of science, we made, tested and flew kites- what an exciting topic!
The second half of the Autumn term’s adventures will take us on a discovery of ‘Animals from around the World’. Stay tuned to find out more about all the great learning that is happening this half term.
