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.


Spring 2 Topic


Family Album


We will be asking the question: 'How have toys changed over time?'



We will be covering many subjects through this topic:


Science The children will observe and compare changes occurring during spring and compare weather associated with the seasons. They will learn how day length varies in different seasons and the children will update and add to their longitudinal study diary.


HistoryThe children will explore photographs to tell the difference between past and present in their own and other people’s lives by using and making simple comparisons. They will order the events in their lives (in a chronological order) and they will explore how they have changed over time.  


Computing The children will explore how stories can be presented in a variety of ways. They will learn how to add animations and sound effects to an image and they will create their own digital story.


Geography - The children use a range of maps and globes to explore, name, locate and identify characteristics of the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom and its surrounding seas.


Maths - The children will explore the place value of numbers up to 50 and use this to partition numbers into tens and ones. They will also find 1 more and 1 less of given numbers to 50. The children will explore weight, height, length and volume and the unit measures linked to these.


English The children will share their family’s favourite stories and they will begin to use simple adjectives to describe the characters and settings within each story. The children will write accurate, interesting sentences and they will continue to extend their sentences using conjunctions. They will also focus on a number of quality texts linked to their topic including ‘Little Red’ by Bethan Woolvin.
