Spring term 2020

This is Our School

Here is the song we sang as a school in our assembly last Friday. Please have a listen and enjoy!

Our topic for the Spring Term is 'Dinosaurs and Dragons'. Please click on the links below for our Topic Overview and Home Activities.

Why Dinosaurs Are Extinct

Our writing focus over the next couple of weeks has been an 'explanation' text. We have been learning a piece of writing about why 'dragons' are extinct. The children will then innovate this to explain why 'dinosaurs' are extinct. The video of the class reciting the original text is on the link below.

A Poem a Week - 2nd Half term

Every week, Beech Class focus on a different poem. Initially this will be read to the class, but by the end of the week we may be reciting the poems ourselves. If your child would like to practice this half term's poems, please click on the links below.

                    Autumn Term 2019

Our topic for the Autumn Term is Journeys. As it has been fifty years since the famous moon landing, this important journey will be a big focus for us. Early in the Autumn term we also look forward to a trip to Hereford on our local bus. We will visit popular landmarks such as the Cathedral, Black and White House and the Library. The children will also learn about the first flight in history.
