Beech Class

Class Name: Beech

Class Teacher: Emma

Term:  2

Date Completed: April 2019

Topic this term: Circle of Life


Our topic this term has been ‘Circle of Life’. We have been learning about the life cycle of plants, animals and humans. Some of the activities we have taken part in include: growing ‘Grass Heads’ & ‘Cress Heads’, creating flower pictures using brushes, creating our own cocoon from papier mache and a caterpillar from different green materials, meeting the school chicks and helping to look after them, and participating in Sensory Stories (Jack and the Beanstalk was our class favourite !).

As a class we have also celebrated several different occasions including Red Nose Day (exploring a variety of red objects and materials), Chinese New Year (lots of fun with noodles!) and Well-being & Art Week (taking part in activities that make us happy, including: putting on face packs and using a footspa, using switches to operate favourite toys, and dressing up and having our faces painted). 

Topic next term: Super Sports

We hope to spend lots of time outside in the sunshine taking part in a range of activities (good old British weather permitting of course !)

Please do not forget to send in any WOW moments from home, we will add these into your child’s learning journey. If you need more wow stars, just ask!

Happy Spring break from all in Beech Class!
