Spring term flew by! This half term we are super excited to be learning all about What makes the Perfect pet?

We have lots of exciting things planned. We have been learning about what plants and animals need to survive and we have learnt how to sort  animals into their specific categories. Our topic is evolving each week and we will be reserching into the best type of animal to become our class pet. A pet will be arriving in Beech Class soon.... WATCH THIS SPACE!

We will be using non-fiction books a lot this half term to inform our knowledge and our writing. We will also be getting to grips with how to use dictionaries. We will be celebrating our blossoming reading abilities and practising lots to support our pace and expression. How many times are you reading at home Beech Class?

As well as a visit from RSPB, our Forest School sessions will support our understanding of our new topic brilliantly. We will be looking into food chains and making homes for mini-beasts. We thoroughly enjoyed cooking our own recipes on the fire last week!

We are becoming familiar with Bible stories and we are encouraging children to bring a copy of a Bible into school, if they have one, so we can read a story from their own Bible every week.

In Maths we are continuing to develop upon Mathematical concepts by finding fractions of shapes and numbers, counting on from any given number in 2's, 5's and 10's. We are also becoming super little problem solvers and enjoy challenging ourselves and our learning partners!

Over the next few weeks, we are excited to celebrate the Royal Wedding. We will be learning a choreographed dance to Bruno Mars "I think I want to Marry You" and will be creating Wedding invitations!

Remember to speed read your phonic sounds in your green folders in preperation for our Phonic Screening Check. 

We are becoming fit and strong by par-taking in circuit training with a coach and tennis lessons too. These support our Well-Being, as well as Meditation Monday and Well-Being Wednesday!
