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.
The autumn term whizzed by with lots of fun activities, especially in the build up to Christmas. Beech class wrote some brilliant explorer stories based upon Sir Ernest Shackleton.
The Family Walking Club took part in several local weekend littler picks, helping to keep our area and wildlife safe. Well done to all those who took part!
The topic for the first half of the spring term in Beech class is the ‘Siege of Corfe Castle’. We are very lucky to have a castle with a fantastic and interesting history minutes down the road. Within this topic, the children will be learning the history behind the castle, as well as writing fictional stories about knights and dragons, culminating with a visit and tour guide.
In science, the children will be learning about animals and life-cycles, utilising our outdoor area and surrounding fields to develop their knowledge.
The second half of the term's topic will be based around continents and oceans, linked into the science animal topic of different animal species and their habitats.
