Welcome to Term 3

Well, this may not have been the start of the new year that we were all hoping for, but we keep shining Beech Class! That means we can get though this tricky time together. We are so proud of you all, adapting to the changes and demonstrating resilience towards your learning.

Beech Class Remote Learning Letter

As always, we are really looking forward to developing our ‘Beech Team Spirit’ this term to further support our learning and growing together.  We can’t wait to build on our shared experiences to date.

This term we are looking forward to:

  • Exploring the world of Ancient Greece.
  • Discovering Ancient Greek Pottery.
  • Studying rocks and identifying their properties and uses.
  • Diving into a literary adventure at Black Rock with our new Write Stuff book.
  • Consolidating our maths prowess by applying the four operations to a ‘plethora of problems’.
  • Polishing our linguistic skills by engaging in Funky French lessons (rapping not singing!).
  • Thinking about the importance of Jesus to Christians in RE

Be sure to check in from time to time and follow our exciting journey!

Wednesday 20th January 2021

We wanted to say well done to both yourselves and your parents for completing the first week of home learning! You have continued to shine!

How to get help through the day

If you are stuck, this is normal and happened at school all the time- getting stuck and making mistakes is how we learn. I am here to help! Please use Dojo and ask me questions like you would do at school and I will send you a quick message to help. Remember to check our Class Dojo daily for further support and guidance.

Please also remember we will be delivering daily check in sessions- this is an opportunity for us to celebrate our learning achievements that day, but to also ask questions about our learning if needed.

Celebrating our Remote Learning in Term 3

Term 1 – a look back

We are so proud of everyone and everything we have achieved in Term 1. We have learnt so much together. Here is a flavour of what we did:

  • We learnt all about our skeletons and muscles and how they work together.


  • We shared and performed poetry through poet Joseph Coelho latest book during the Literature Festival.

  • We had ace fun designing and creating carrot cars to race together to develop new teamwork skills.

  • We worked our socks off to improve our knowledge of place value.
  • We have shown empathy for the world’s population by learning about the injustice of segregation and discussing our views and opinions to make a better world.

Term 2 – a look back

  • Writing creative and informative diary entries.
  • Continuing to explore our four operations in maths and looking at the many ways we can apply them to our daily lives.
  • The intricacies of our digestive system and how it affects our body’s health.

  • Our chomping champions and the different roles each of them play.
  • What the Torah means to the Jewish community.

Christmas in Beech Class!

Welcome to our Christmas Grotto!

This year’s Christmas Arts Day theme was recycle and reuse. We created Christmas wreaths using recycled cardboard… many of us used them as Christmas hats!

In Beech Class, we recognise the importance of reading for pleasure. As part of our Christmas gift to the class, we created a book advent. Each child enjoyed unwrapping a book. Throughout the day, the children enjoy reading these books and sharing them with their friends.


Spellings will be sent home every Monday in your child’s reading record. Spelling tests will be carried out every Friday.


Weekly homework will consist of times tables, reading, and spellings. Instructions for this will be written in your child’s individual reading record every Monday.

Fortnightly, the children will be asked to complete a topic-based task. All children will be given a homework book, this is to be kept at home. This will be used to complete their topic-based task which we ask to be submitted electronically via Dojo.
