Beech Class 2019 - 2020

A momentous day for George..Well done you did it!....and to Mrs N too!

Raising money for Malawi children

What to do when it's pouring with rain outside, the hall is being used, there is nowhere else to go and your class insist they want PE! You re-arrange the classroom and do some core body exercises! It was great fun!

Limbering up!

Beech class had great fun and enjoyed the chance to explore and discover how to create circuits, with appropriate conductors, in a practical session during their science lesson. They are learning to create series and parallel circuits and will eventually create a buzzer-type game.

Discovering conductors and insulators in electical circuits.

Beech Class had a wonderful morning in history today making Stone Age Shelters. Everyone worked together to help construct the shelters and enjoyed making a fabulous mess! Here are some photos of their finished constructions:

Beech Class having 'High Tea' on The Binsted Express!

We have been learning about Trains for our topic this term and decided to use some DT skills and learn how to make scones and cute sandwiches! We all had a lovely day, the sampling in the afternoon was the best!

Here are some photos of the event.

Curriculum Overview of Beech Class 2018 -2019

Summer Term 2019

 

This is always a busy term and filled with musical/acting performances and many sporting events. Beech Class are learning about 'Railways at home and Abroad' for their topic and in Science they are studying 'Plants.'

In June we shall be having a sleepover at school and we shall also be going on a class trip during this term.

Keep an eye on the webpages for more photos and pieces of the children's' work.

On Wednesday 12th June 2019 Beech Class had their class trip to London.

In the morning they visited the Transport Museum Depot in Acton and in the afternoon they visited Tate Britain.

It was originally going to be Tate Modern, but, There was a lot of police activity across London

and several of the major roads in the city centre had been blocked off!

Very inconvenient!

However, as luck would have it, having just passed Tate Britain, Miss Cox decided to visit this!

It was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Fun with planting

Spring Term 2019

 

In Beech Class this term we shall be having a geography topic-based theme, learning about 'Europe' ; Purely coincidence re Brexit ! The children will be using digital and good old-fashioned resources - globe and atlases - to find out about Europe's position globally, as well as climates, trade, currency, languages and landscapes/land-uses.

This term we are also increasing our mathematical knowledge and understanding by further developing place value, arithmetic, shape and measure, fractions and increasing our understanding of time and statistics - graphs!

In English we are reading a book called 'The Secret Lake' and will be finding out about stories and poems from different European countries.

In Science this first half of term, we are learning about 'States of Matter' and the second half of the term, about; 'Rocks and fossils'. In RE the focus is from 'Understanding Christianity' and looking at 'People of God'. PSHE is via 'HeartSmart' - 'Too much selfie isn't healthy!'

In PE the children are developing their skills in orienteering and will also  be doing 'Dance' focus.

So lots to learn and enjoy over the coming weeks.

 

 

Beech Class Making Science!

On a gorgeous sunny, autumnal November day 2018, Year 3 and 4  had a lovely trip to Baylab Pharmaceuticals in Reading. They got the chance to be scientists for a day - wearing the obligatory white coat - and learnt how to make bath bombs and lip balm! 

The following photos reveal the science, as well as the excitement involved, in creating a product which the children were able to take home; complete with personalised choices of smells and colours. 

The sun is shining, the summer term is young and Beech Class are having fun working in groups designing and creating clothes out of paper!

Spellings really can be fun!

 

A new year and a new approach towards learning our spellings!  Today the whole school had a fun spelling day.

Beech Class were looking at 'Contraction Words' and had fun doing a variety of activities to help remember them. They sang about the 5 vowels which the apostrophes replace and managed 3 different rhythms simultaneously - cool !

They did some lovely finger painting, made some  model contraction words out of clay, created words as stain-glass window affects, came up with some crazy mnemonics to help remember the words, and, had fun with a quick quiz!

All -in-all, a great time was enjoyed by all...even by Miss Cox and Mrs Nicklin!

Beech Class have been learning about Christianity this half term and have been looking at the concept of 'Holy'. What it means and what they recognise as a Holy image or symbol. Binsted is a Church of England School and so we were lucky to have a guest speaker who is a practising Catholic. This was extremely interesting for the children who find it difficult to comprehend that we are all Christians, despite following either Church of England or Catholic religion. Mr Taylor was faced with many questions from the children and he was able to help unravel any confusions that had arisen. Some questions:

Do Catholics speak different languages?

Do Catholics eat any special foods?

Do Catholics go to different churches?

Do they have vicars?

Do they follow Jesus?

Do they wear special clothes?

Many thanks to Mr Taylor for enlightening us all. 

 

'Measuring' in our maths lesson and having fun!

Look at us working hard!

A cross curricular project re 'sound'. We incorporated Science, DT, Maths and Music to create our very own musical instruments!

There's Maths all around us!

Busy recording shapes 2d and 3d
Some serious measuring going on here!
How many wooden slats did you say?
Looking for different leaf shapes
Trying to estimate the rope squares
Finding the difference between length and width

Resilience and Inspiration

 

There are times when we all need to reflect and evaluate what we are doing and how things are going. Being resilient is not always easy but by developing skills which enable us all to keep going and always do our best are what make us the unique individuals we grow into.

 

Mindfulness is a great way of focusing the mind and de-cluttering helping re-energise our positivity. 

 

  It's good to talk                      Believe in yourself              There's always a way out

It's good to talk      Believe in yourself   There is always a way out     You can get there in the end
