Beech Class

Hello and welcome to Beech Class. 

In Beech class we have 6 boys and 5 girls.  Our class teacher is Michelle and our LSAs are Rachel and Kate and we have Christine our Apprentice.

This term our topic is Dungeons and Dragons.  The children will be looking at lots of books about dragons and learning all about Medieval Times .  Our Science focus this term is about forces and PHSE is learning about our emotions and how to stay safe.  

Keeping cool in the Sun!! The children in Beech and Elm class enjoyed a Water fight and found it was the perfect way to keep cool! (and it was a lot of fun soaking the staff too!)

The children in Beech Class were lucky enough to be able to watch a performance of Hairspray at Knowsley Community College.  After the show the children got to meet the cast and were even taught some new dance moves! The children and staff had a great time and really enjoyed the performance and learning the moves!

Last half term the children learnt all about the history of music and how music makes us feel, we made colour charts and learnt all about primary and secondary colours.  In cookery we used the blender to make healthy smoothies and practised our chopping skills. We have also been looking at Christian rites of Passage and the children have celebrated a wedding and a Christening.  

We have enjoyed continuing our Basketball practice and perfecting our skills. 

Beech class have had an enjoyable and busy Spring Term.  Our topics were Baby It's Cold Outside and New Life.

 

The children have been learning new techniques to help them remain calm. This includes Yoga, breathing techniques and the use of props- sensory bottles and squeezy toys (flour filled balloons)

The children really enjoyed their trip to the recycling centre and learnt all about what can and can't be recycled. The children had the opportunity to dress up in protective clothing and to do some recycling themselves.

This term our topic is Happy Families.  We are reading some of the Happy Families books- Mr Tick the Teacher, Master Bun the Bakers Boy, Mrs Vole the Vet and Miss Jump the Jockey.  We are enjoying looking at different jobs and reading the books.  Our Science focus is on keeping healthy and our RE focus is Judaism.  

Cookery

During cookery we have decide to focus on making things using bread and making different types of bread-linking in with our book Master Bun the Bakers' Boy- .  So far we have made toast, bread buns, a bread loaf and naan bread.  This has been extra fun as we can eat our creations the next day for our snack! We spend time in the cookery room and are learning to follow verbal instructions and work as independently as possible. 

This term our topic was Celebrations.  We made party food in cookery and learnt about Bonfire night, birthdays, Christmas and Hanukkah.    We learnt how different celebrations were celebrated during Victorian times and in RE/ PHSE we learnt how to keep safe on bonfire night, how to cross the road safely and who are safe 'strangers' to ask for help. 

We have enjoyed our lead up to Christmas this term.  We made lots of lovely things to sell at our Christmas fair, we made reindeer poo, reindeer food, Reindeer cakes, reindeer hot chocolate and reindeer decorations.  We watched Key Strings perform and enjoyed playing some of their musical instruments that they brought along. We also enjoyed the Variety Christmas party.  

We took part in our fabulous Christmas play and we were brilliant! we all worked very hard at our 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' segment and hope you enjoyed it too.

We continue to look forward to our visit to Crazy Town, our Christmas dinner and our 2nd Christmas party!
