Welcome to Beech Class. We are a mixed Year 1 and 2 Class. Our teachers are Mrs Smith, Mrs Jordan and Mrs Chatell, supported by Mrs Lavender, Miss Hawkins, Mrs Nye and Mrs Taylor.


In Beech Class this Spring we are asking: “What is out there?” Creating imaginary planets and aliens but also learning about the lives of significant explorers from both the past and living memory.


In Geography the children will be finding out about a small village in India called Chembakolli, considering what is the same and what is different about living there.


In music this term they will be singing and in PSHE focusing on keeping safe and rights and responsibilities.


The class will also be visiting QMC to complete a series of experiments about animals.

Vehicle DT Project

Beech Class enjoyed a story by Phyllis Root called Rattletrap Car.  It's a story that embraces make, do and mend as the family try to make it to the lake.  Beech Class were set a challenge to make a prototype of a vehicle the family might like to invest in, in the future.  They had to follow a design criteria whilst designing and making their vehicles.  This included:  to use recyclable or reusable materials, have working wheels, be appealing and have space for the whole family (4 people).


In the design process the children explored how axles can be used in different ways to make vehicles move (fixed and free axles).  They also embraced their scientific thinking and learnt about forces.  They investigated how pushes and pulls can change objects and what happens if objects have a larger mass.  Beech Class demonstrated great determination as they followed their designs to create their 

vehicle prototype and they evaluated the design and making process.  


The children were quick to realise they might have to make adaptations along the making process and that change is all part of the creating.
