Welcome to Beech Class!
We are a mixed-age year three and four class, taught by Miss Harrison and supported by Mrs Toft.
Let's hope that after a very strange and unexpected school year in 2019-2020, that the 2020-2021 school year will feel much more normal and give us a chance to get back to our super learning!
This term in Beech class, we are learning all about place value and making sure we have a solid understanding of this to help us in all of our future maths units. In English, we are working to develop our reading and writing skills, with all of our units being based on a book. We started by looking at 'The Dark' by Lemony Snicket, and then 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!' by Jon Scieszka, and after half term we will be focusing on the second book in the Ottoline series, 'Ottoline goes to school', buy our class author Chris Riddell.
We are also doing some fantastic work in Science based on our units 'All Living Things' and 'Animals including Humans'.
In History, we are learning all about The Great Plague and how it has even affected life today!
And in Art, we are developing our printing skills linked to our history unit by looking at artwork by Damien Hirst and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
