Welcome to Beech Class
Hello, my name is Miss Lee and I am the class teacher within Beech Class.
We are very lucky that we also have Miss Spencer working with us.
We are all very excited to be welcoming the new children at Longshaw and have lots of exciting things planned!
This is our class page where you can find out all the information about the term and any dates you will need.
We also have class blog where there will be weekly videos, photos and activities for you and the children to enjoy.
Our exciting topic for this half term is...
Our Topic for the this term is:
Children will begin this topic by sharing their own favourite toys and why they are special to them. We will then go on to consider how toys from the past were different and compare them to toys that we use today. Children will begin to understand the concept of chronology and the passing of time. We will use this to consider how toys have changed over time.
Children will use their understanding of toys to evaluate existing products in order to plan a toy that they can create themselves. Children will have the opportunity to create their own toy through a range of techniques and evaluate the effectiveness of it in order to consider how it can be improved.
We will also be spending a week exploring the history of Remembrance day and why we celebrate it every year.
How you can help at home :)
Read with your child every night, talk through and discuss the story and characters.
Counting regularly with your child, both forwards and backwards. If they read every night they will get dojos in school as a reward.
Ask your child about their day, we do lots of different activities throughout the day and they will love to share.
Ensure your child's book bag is in school everyday.
Complete the homework given out on a Friday with them, this reflects the learning throughout the week.
Please ensure your child brings in their book bag every day. Also make sure that you check these bags every night for any messages or letters that might have been given out. Please can you make sure that you label all of your child’s clothes, this includes all parts of their uniform, PE kits, coats and shoes, as this helps us to find the owner of the item much faster!! We have PE on Wednesdays, please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.
You will receive newsletters and information from school regularly, however, if you have and questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to me.
