Welcome to Beech Class

Hello, I am Miss Orme and I am the class teacher in Beech Class.

We are very lucky as we also have Mrs Ormerod and Miss Pryce supporting us this year.


Summer 2 Topic





We will be covering many subjects through this topic:


ScienceThe children will identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and describe the function of each part. They will perform simple tests to identify which part of the body is associated with sight, touch, sound, taste and smell.  


PSHE - The children will identify things they could do as a baby, a toddler and can do now. They will explain the difference between teasing and bullying and the children will know the difference between boys and girls.


History - The children will complete a case study on the famous inventor ‘George Devol’ who invented the first robot. They will explore the changes in technology and processes and look at inventions that were created from George Devol’s work.


Art - The children will use painting to develop and share their ideas, experiences and imagination. They will explore colour mixing and paint layering before designing and painting their own imaginary robot. They will then share, discuss and evaluate their final art piece.


Maths - The children will recognise the place value of numbers up to 100 through objects and pictorial representations. They will apply this to the four main operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will also recognise coins and understand the value of each one.


English - The children will begin the term exploring the story ‘Traction Man is here’ by Mini Grey. They will describe the characters and settings within the story and they will begin to use a variety of sentence types. They will then compare stories from the same author and write an innovated story in the author’s style.
