Welcome to Beech!

We have 31 amazing children in our class. 

 

Mr Dyson is our class teacher.

Topic:

Our topic for this half term is "Awesome Egyptians". This topic is very History, English and Art based and we will be using "Egyptian Cinderella" by Shirley Climo and "The Prince of Egypt" for a wide range of digital literacy opportunities . At the end of this topic, will be turning our classroom into our very own Egyptian Museum.

 

English:

In class we will be using "Egyptian Cinderella" by Shirley Climo and "The Prince of Egypt" to help focus our learning in English. We will be writing our own newspaper reports , descriptive settings, narrative stories, non-chronological reports, diary entries and persuasive letters.

Maths:

This half term we will be learning about multiplication, division and fractions. We will using the White Rose Hub to help develop the children's fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. This year we are having a big push on Maths outside the classroom and we have started to use Maths of the Day to put our Maths skills into practice.We also have a weekly times table test on a Friday. Children are encouraged to use Mathletics and Times Table Rockstar to help consolidate their learning in class.
