Wow! I cannot believe we are already at the end of Term 4! What a brilliant couple of terms it has been.  

We kicked off Term 3 with our hook day to get the children excited all about The Stone Age. The children made paint out of fruit and painted on the walls like real cavemen and we learnt what pre History was. We produced a fantastic retelling of the Stone Age Boy and a diary entry as if we had gone back in time.

In PE, we were gymnasts for the term and performed beautifully in front of Mr Hinton from Shepway Sports Trust. They were super mathematicians and secured their knowledge in addition and subtraction.  

In Term 4, we carried on learning about Pre History but we moved onto the Iron Age and Bronze Age. The children loved reading The Iron Man and wrote some fantastic descriptive pieces and some lovely shape poems.

At the end of the term, we watched The Iron Giant and compared the book to the movie. The children loved doing this. We also wrote some persuasive letters to the Farmers Union to get rid of the Iron Man.

In Science, we have been physicists by exploring forces.   

To open the children’s eyes to lots of different sports, Beech Class has taken part in Skateboarding, American Football and inclusive sports.  

I am so proud of Beech class, they show a love of learning day in day out and they are a pleasure to teach!  

Have a lovely Easter break J

T1 and T2 2021 Update



What an amazing start to this school year! Beech Class have gone from strength to strength and have settled in really well. We have taken part in some super exciting learning. 

In Term One, we learnt about the secrets of the rainforest where we focused on the amazon rainforest, its inhabitants and its history! We did some fantastic non-fiction writing by creating a fact file all about the amazon rainforest and we read The Great Kapok tree, which inspired some emotional diary entries where we pretended to be animals in the rainforest where trees are being chopped down.   

In Term Two, we started off the term with a Christmas inspired day where Santa Claus asked the children to learn all about the United Kingdom to help him fly on Christmas Eve.  Since then, the children have been learning about the countries within the UK in more depth. We have read The King who Banned the Dark and Father Christmas Goes on Holiday. We have written lots of narratives, letters, diary entries and poems.  

Over both terms, the children have developed their mathematical skills by using concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to support their learning in place value, addition and subtraction. We also took part in Barvember! 

I have been super impressed by the children’s endurance and passion for their learning so far this year! They are superstars!  

I hope you have a lovely and well-deserved Christmas!
