Welcome to Beech Class 2019 - 2020.

We are a mixed class of 32 year 3 and year 4 children.

Our classroom is lovely and bright on the first floor and overlooks the playground.

This year we shall be learning about some exciting topics and participating in several ventures outside of school.

This Autumn Term 2019 is a long but enjoyable term and one which sees us celebrating Harvest and of course Christmas.

Beech Class will be leading a Class Collective Worship; in the past there have been some amazing performances and so we will be aiming to maintain our reputation. We shall be celebrating 'Music Singing Day' on 26th September and participating in a music workshop, as well as participating in the fun and Christian ethos of Christmas services and carols. 

Here is a link to our Autumn Term's Overview:

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.

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.

 

Autumn Term 2018

 

We had a visit from an author today (11th January) who is from America. Sue Ann Rawlin loves to write and loves to travel, so she combined the two and wrote a book about all the friends she meets on her travels. The book is entitled 'Novel Friends'.

Although written for adults, the children were excited to find out where she has travelled to and why she started to write. After 'Susie', as she like being known as, had finished explaining about how important it is to follow your dreams and ambitions, the children asked her many questions. Her book is available in audio, video, online and on paper. Listening to how many hours of editing and preparation for each form of media, made the children appreciate the whole process of publishing too.

Today, Friday December 14th 2018, Beech Class gave an amazing performance in their Class Collective Worship of:

'All Around the World.' Everyone had a part to recite and the 8 songs were sung wonderfully well. Within half an hour they had taken us to India, China, America, Hawaii, Africa and Spain! 

Here are some photos of the occasion for you to enjoy and re-live.

There is also a video of the performance - please go to the video section in the 'Children' drop-down list to view this.

 

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.

Today, September 7th 2018, the sun was shining and so Miss Cox decided to take her class outside for some fun maths activities. These activities included having to work together carefully in order to organise each other into specific categories. We all worked really well together and it made a lovely change from doing maths in our books!

Welcome to Beech Class

2017 - 2018!smiley

                                                             

 

We are a fantastic class of  14 Year 3 and 18 Year 4 children. We have settled in well to our new class and are enjoying our new topic of The Stone Age to The Iron Age. Today we have been creating Stone Age style pictures and in our writing, we have begun to write an adventure cave story. This links in with our class book which is 'Stig of the Dump'.

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!

Here are a selection of our fun spelling day!

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.

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
