Good afternoon and happy Friday,
We have had a very busy week in Beech class. We enjoyed doing outdoor 'nature' maths this week, where we practised our counting, one more and one less through the collection of natural objects. They thoroughly enjoyed the active maths lesson. They also had a lovely time with Mr Dray working on a mosaic art project, it was lovely to see the children persevering even when it was hard. Today, we had some calmer time with practising our handwriting whilst listening to some soothing music. All in all, it has been a great week. I hope you and the children have a lovely weekend.
Look forward to seeing you all back and ready to learn on Monday!
We’ve had another great week in Beech Class! In Literacy, we have been reading 'The Tiger Who Came To Tea' which we thoroughly enjoyed. We have been thinking about how we would feel if a tiger came to our houses. We also thought about what we would need to go and buy if a tiger ate all the food in our house (cookies were a top priority for quite a few children!).
We had our first Saints PE lesson with coach Mr Ansell – we enjoyed playing a few games, practising balancing bean bags on our heads and relay races! Please remember that we have PE on Mondays and Fridays and we need to have our PE kits in school.
Beech class have had a fantastic start to the new school year. They have all done well learning the new classroom expectations and settling back into school life. I have been so impressed by how polite the children are, lots of children remembering their pleases and thank yous. We have done lots of learning, including thinking about what makes us special. We thought about the fact that we are all different but all fit together - just like a jigsaw.
There were lots of tired faces at the end of today, so hope that they all have restful weekends. I look forward to seeing them all again on Monday.
