Shwmae a chroeso i Ddosbarth Beech!
Hello and welcome to Class Beech!
On this page you will be kept up to date with news and information from our class.
Our Topic - Alchemy Island
This term's topic is all about magic and fantasy. It is an Expressive Arts (Music) based topic where pupils will discover magical islands and become an alchemist themselves! In Music, they will be composing, recording and editing software. In our Literacy sessions, the children will be using vocabulary for effect by using dictionaries and thesauri, adapting their talk, deliberately choosing speech, movement and gesture to appeal to an audience, plan, draft, redraft and evaluate work by creating poems, narratives and reports. We will be studying coordinates in Mathematics and, looking at material's physical properties and reversible and irreversible changes in Science.
Here you will find some useful information.
Reading books need to be brought to school every day as they are sometimes used during the day. Due to the large number of pupils, children will read at least once a week so please read at home as often as possible.
Spellings will be sent home every Friday. They will be tested the following Friday and new ones given. Please practise these all week at home alongside any other homework given. New ones can be given if lost. Sheets do not need to be brought back to school.
As swimming sessions have been moved to the Summer term, P.E sessions have also changed. Please can all children bring their kit along with trainers every Monday and Tuesday.
Homework books have been sent home for your child to cover. Homework will be sent home most weeks when necessary (some may be on their google accounts). If there is no homework set, please continue to practise spellings, reading and times tables.
There are several websites your child has personal log-ons for to help them with their learning (links below). Please see us for details if they have been forgotten.
Please don't hesitate to see us if you have any queries. Thank you.
Miss Hanson, Mrs Morgan and Mrs Winterburn.
