'Shine as Lights in the World'

Beech (year 5)

I will not be setting any formal homework now, however there will be pages in the homework books that are unfinished if the children could work their way through them that would be beneficial.

Ethan and Mattie did a 12.6km bike ride for charity - they raised over £400 for the WWF and the Salvation Army. What an achievement!

Fun with inflatables!

Multi Sports with Mr Williams

Hello all,

I can't wait to see you all next week!

I hope you have enjoyed the Luke Temple Masterclass the work I have seen is wonderful. Don't forget if you would like to buy a book from him I have posted the order form on the website.

I haven't had any pictures for the photography competition, make sure you go out over the weekend and take some photos.

Enjoy your weekend and see you Monday.

Mrs Woods

Work for this week

Hello everyone!

We have finished our English, Far Away tales, I have really enjoyed sharing the stories with you and they have really inspired you to write some fantastic stories, it is really good to see that you are keeping your standards high. Well done for working so well and independently in your maths you have coped really well with percentages and decimals.

It was lovely to see your powerful art work in response to the Stations of the Cross power point - I have posted the pictures that I have received on the website. I also loved your art showing movement, you have thought of some really original ideas from diving to dancing!

Next week is our final week of home learning...hurray! I can't wait to see you all on the 8th March. I hope that you will enjoy Luke Temple's masterclass in English and that you enjoy his book 'Mutating Mansion',

Enjoy your weekend and see you Monday at 9 for maths.

Mrs Woods

Beech Home Learning 1st March

I can't believe that we are at half term already.  Well done to everyone for working so hard with your home learning.  We have managed to master Google classroom , it has been lovely to see you all every day and I have been really pleased with the standard of your work. You have been inspired by our Far Away tales and the quality of your work is fabulous.  Well done for coping so well with the the maths on your own and thank you to your parents who have been giving you a helping hand when you need it.

I am so pleased that some of you have been thinking about the environment in PSHE and I have loved your pledges to help save British endangered species.

Today I announced that Jenson is the winner of the Young Chef award, his tasty menu showed considerable skill and looked extremely tasty! Well done to Edward and James as runners up and to Sofia T, Lillian, Ethan and Freddie who were highly commended.  I will post some pictures for you to have a look at.

I hope you have a fantastic half term and I will see you all virtually on the 22nd!

Home Learning w/c 8th February

I can't believe another week has gone by and we are heading towards the last week before half term. Once again it has been lovely to see you all in the live lessons and I have been impressed by how hard you have been working.

You have all responded well to the Oliver Twist unit from Oak Academy and I have enjoyed reading all of your creative week's English will be a live lesson at 9am every day.

It is so wonderful to see your creativity too, I have loved your poems they were really special. Science obviously inspired you as well this week, take a look at Edward, Freddie and Josef's which are on the website... I am happy to put more up if you send them to me.

A special well done to Charlie and Scarlett for your hedgehog hotel, James' and Jenson's fabulous bird feeders. It is great to see that you are doing some outdoor work too!

Well done everyone, keep up the good work!

Dance Rehearsal with Mrs Lewis (3)

Still image for this video

Hello everyone!

We have almost finished our first week of live maths lessons and inspite of the couple of technical hitches I think overall it has gone really well. I wanted to say how sensible the children have been and how focussed and hard working they are- they can be really proud of themselves.  We have had 100% attendance which is fantastic!

Next week we will continue with fractions... I have tried to use some pages from a text book to save your printers although there are a couple of days with worksheets... check with your child which level they usually work on (developing, expected or greater depth) and you only need to print that sheet rather than the whole lot.  I would like the children to start handing in their maths via the class room please.

I will post the weekly timetable on the website as well as in the classroom.

It was lovely to see Toby's bug hotel and Edward and Lenny's bird feeders and the other work that the children have been doing... please keep the emails coming.

Have a lovely weekend!

Hello everyone!

It was so lovely to see you all in our class meeting... hopefully we have sorted out any technical issues for next week's live lessons.  Just a reminder we will be starting our lesson at 9am, I will upload all documents that you need for the lesson on Google Classroom from Sunday at 5pm then you can get things printed ready.  If you don't have a printer don't worry you can work with a piece of paper. On Friday we will be having a times tables test so please get practising! Resources for your other lessons will now be on Google classroom rather than on the website.

I have been so impressed by your home learning this week you have drawn some superb sketches, created some lovely project work, written some fabulous creative writing and done some tricky maths...well done!!

The dance was fun today and if you missed it the link is below . Enjoy your weekend and see you all Monday!

Hello everyone!

I am so impressed by your home learning this week, it is lovely to receive your emails showing me how hard you are working.. check out the photos on the website.

Thank you for your Young Chef pictures, your food looks so tasty and healthy and it is so good to see you cooking independently.

I LOVED seeing most of you this morning with Mrs Lewis, the dance is already taking shape, when Mrs Lewis sends me the YouTube link I will post it on the website so that you can start practising.

You will find the work for next week below - a couple of changes: I have given you a login for Charanga music and the scheme you will be following is the Fresh Prince of Bel Air - a bit of rapping for you and there is a mental arithmetic paper for maths.

Please fill in your reading journals on Purple Mash.

I look forward to meeting up with you next week and dancing again on Friday!

Mrs Woods

More Young Chef pictures. Please keep cooking and keep sending them to me I will be judging soon.....

Some pictures of this week's home learning

Dear Beech Class,

I hope you are all well and had a happy New Year.  Well done for completing your first week of home learning and you will see below your learning  for next week.

Don't forget to send me emails of your work I love to see what you are doing.  I have posted some of the work that has been sent to me by Tabby, Lenny, Sofia and Ellena.

Don't forget about the Young Chef competition I haven't received everybody's pictures yet and I was hoping to start judging soon.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and keep up the good work next week!

Mrs Woods

Be Careful What You Wish For

This is a short play written by four children in Beech Class - Jack, Jenson, Lilian and Toby. We spent a few weeks together on Tuesday afternoons discussing thoughts and ideas about inspirational pictures. I asked them if they'd like to choose one that they particularly liked and write a short play together. Their enthusiasm for this project was overwhelming and we had a lot of fun brainstorming, choosing characters, writing lines, allocating parts, thinking of sound affects and a few props and eventually filming. This is the finished version. Every single word is their own. This is their project.


Young Chef

Check out the powerpoint with some recipe ideas and the web links that show how to fold napkins in inventive ways. I will also upload the judging criteria for you to complete.  It is really important that the children are as independent as possible when they are cooking and that they present their food as best they can.  Good luck!

Freddie did an exciting welding project with his Grandad at the weekend
