SLS Recommended Reading Books

Year 1

Year 2

Books that promote diversity and inclusion

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 Beech Class this term we will be exploring seaside’s and the physical and human features of their geography. We will explore sea life in detail in Summer 2 on our exciting trip to the aquarium. During this term we will explore animals and their habitats, including why animals are suited to their habitats. So keep your eyes peeled for any habitats you might be able to spot when you are out and about. The children will further develop their musical skills to play Samba music and they will have the opportunity to improve their sporting skills in a range of sports including tennis, cricket and athletics.

What Beech Class have been learning this week.

This week in Beech Class we have been exploring poetry. The children have enjoyed ‘Sand in my Toes’ by Caroline Cross and ‘At the Seaside’ by Robert Louis Stevenson. They have explored rhyming words and adjectives to describe. At the end of the week the children wrote a poem about a sea creature using an adjective, noun structure and performed their poems to the class.

In Science this week the children have continued to explore animals and habitats. They made simple food chains working hard to remember a food chain always starts with a producer.

Beech Class had a fantastic time at Sports Day at the beginning of the week and enjoyed demonstrating all their skills. In PE the children discussed the importance of a warm up and practiced pacing themselves when doing different length runs. They also practised power and speed in their throwing.

Curriculum Overview Summer 2022

The Gingerbread Man

Beech Class have been exploring traditional tales. We have enjoyed reading and retelling ‘The Gingerbread Man’. The children spotted the repeating text and lots of features we see in stories. We made our own ginger people biscuits together. The children worked well as a team and used their maths skills to weigh and count how many biscuits they had made. Everyone followed and orally rehearsed the instructions so we didn’t forget any ingredients. They practiced using imperative verbs (bossy verbs) to tell their friends what to do next. Most importantly the verdict was “They are deilicious!”
