Beech Class

Welcome to Beech Class. This class is for children in Year 3 and 4. Mr Branch is our class teacher and we are supported by Mrs Robb.  

We are always very busy and have recently been learning about clocks in maths which has been extremely helpful to know how much time we have left to finish or how long it is until lunch!  

In literacy this term, we have travelled back to the Stone Age with the ‘Stone Age Boy’, a book written by Satoshi Kitamura. Click this link to listen to the story.  We also attended a fireworks display and are currently being visited by ‘The Iron Man’, a book written by Ted Hughes.  Have a look at one of the pictures created in class, can you spot his infra-red eyes as he stands silently on the cliff edge looming over his surroundings?

Topic lessons are some of the children’s favourites and they have enjoyed travelling through time from the Stone Age and into the Bronze Age and they will soon make a stop in the Iron Age!  Numerous activities and projects have taken place but a highlight has to be Stonehenge which has encouraged children to make models, paint and draw pictures and record a plethora of facts and information!

In a recent lesson, the children have made clay pots inspired by the ‘Bell Beaker People’ and painted silhouettes of the above mentioned monument!
