Welcome to Beech Class!
It's the summer term!
Our learning theme for this term is: Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!
This term we will be learning about our local coastline, particularly Cromer. We will be looking at maps and photographs and trying to spot physical and human features of the local seaside town. For our history lessons, we will find out about a local hero, Henry Blogg, a lifeboat man from Cromer who was born in 1954. We will also be comparing seaside holidays from the past and present.
Science: We will be exploring and naming a variety of plants and animals in their habitats.
Art: We will be practicing our sketching skills to draw fossils, shells and rocks. We will experiment with different mediums such as pencils and charcoal.
Design Technology: We will be making healthy sandwiches that will be inspired by the story of The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch. We will develop our grating, chopping and spreading skills as well as learning about the importance of health and hygiene when preparing food.
Music: We will learn some different songs that are linked to our learning theme.
RE: We will learn about Judaism.
Spanish: basic phrases
PE: We will be doing dance with a specialist teacher. We will also be doing some outdoor games and athletics. Year 1s will be swimming this half term and year 2s will be swimming after half term.
PSHE: We will be learning about relationships and how to look after our planet.
Homework is set on a Wednesday and needs to be handed in the following Monday. Please continue to support your child with their homework and encourage them to regularly read their book at least 3-4 times a week. Remember, when you read at least 3 times in a week (not the same book) your photo will move along the reading rainbow. When you reach the pot of gold you will get a certificate!
Any questions or queries you may have please come and talk to Mrs King or Mrs HP at the beginning or end of the day. Appointments can also be made through the school office.
Mrs King (Mon-Tue) and Mrs HP (Wed-Thurs)
