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 and Mrs Wood.

In Beech Class, this Autumn we will be looking at two significant historical characters. The children will use sources to help them to evaluate their lives and legacy, form opinions and use evidence to justify those opinions. More will be revealed after our first lesson!

After half term we will begin our Geography and the children will be finding out about 'Our School,' using maps and fieldwork to explore our School site and comparing the lovely surroundings.

In music this term the children will be learning to play the ukulele with Mr Hall from Hampshire Music Service. In PSHE using our Scarf resources we will thinking about feelings and friendships and in Science the children will be learning about food, hygiene and senses. They will explore some of the scientific names for parts of the body.

In RE lessons the children will think about the importance of candlelight in Christianity and Hinduism, focussing on the festival of Divali. In the lead up to Christmas, children will think about the idea of Angels.

Art lessons will focus on the work of Van Gogh and his work of A Starry Night.

Curriculum Overview Autumn 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!”
