Welcome to Beech Class. We are a mixed Year 1 and 2 Class. Our teachers are Mrs Smith, Mrs Jordan and Mrs Green, supported by Mrs Lavender.
In the first half of Autumn term in Beech Class we are exploring the history of transport and investigating how transport has shaped our lives. In Science the children will be identifying and comparing the use of everyday materials. Exploring how materials can be changed and the suitability of materials. Using the skills and knowledge from History and Science the children will design and create their own model car using axles for movement.
During the second half of the Autumn term the children will explore a Geography question: Is the sun always shining in the UK? We will be investigating weather patterns and compare settlements in the UK. In Science the children will compare how things move on different surfaces and put their vehicle designs and creations to the test. In RE we will find out about journeys including the Christian story of Christmas.
Spelling test is Monday.
Number bonds/times tables test is Tuesday.
PE is on Wednesday and Friday. On Wednesday we would like the children to come to school in their uniforms and bring their PE kits with them to change into. On Friday, we would like the children to come to school in their PE kits.
Curriculum Overview Autumn 2021
Lost and Found
We have been listening to the story, 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. The children were very excited to find their own penguins to help them with their work this term.
In DT we have been making hand puppets, exploring design, materials and how to hold the puppet together. As a practice, we made penguin puppets out of paper. This progressed to designing and making a felt hand puppet. The children needed patience, calm and resilience to enable them to design, cut and sew their pieces together. They then spent some time evaluating their project as a whole
