Home Learning

If your child is absent from school due to COVID-19 isolation, here are some activities to support learning at home.

Welcome to Beech Class

In our class we have 10 boys and 2 girls. Our teacher is called Sophie and we have Becky, Sammie and Jack to support our learning. We have a student teacher called James and an apprentice called Elle. We have weekly cookery sessions with Vicky who helps us develop our independence in a kitchen whilst keeping ourselves safe. We also attend weekly swim sessions with Jo and we are now swimming lengths of the pool. We are a very busy class and always working on our independence. We love learning new things but also like a challenge.

Breaking News - Aliens On The Loose!

This week in Literacy, we have been using lots of adjectives in our writing. The children have read along to 'Aliens Love Colours' and have put together some amazing character descriptions.

We decided to host our own live news broadcast with descriptions of some aliens that seem to have escaped. Keep your eyes peeled for them!
