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!
