'Nurturing our children to excellence through Faith and learning'

Beech (year 5)

For a termly or yearly overview of what we will be learning this academic year, please see 'what we learn/curriculum'.


Our Young Chef experience came to an end today with group 3's cooking. Once again the standard was extremely high and some delicious food was produced.  Mr Gillam and I tasted every dish and it was wonderful that there was such a tasty range of flavours.

We were lucky to be shown the 'Print Room' where every single picture on the wall is original.

Thank you once again to Mr Gillam and Mrs Irons for inviting us to use your kitchen it has been an amazing experience for St. Michael's children.


It was Group 2's turn to visit Heath Mount school this week and we were really excited to be picked up by the mini bus.

We cooked some amazing dishes including a variety of fish dishes, pasta, chicken soup and breaded chicken.  The children were extremely well behaved and worked independently. Well done! Thank you again to the chief taster Head Master Mr Gillam  and to Mrs Irons who is in charge of the kitchen.

We were so lucky to be able to cook our main courses for the Young Chef of the Year competition at Heath Mount School.  The children were amazing, their cooking skills were fantastic and they produced a range of tasty dishes.

The Headmaster Mr Gillam even came and tasted each dish (as did I) and he helped with the judging.

Well done to group 1 you did a great job!

Welcome to Beech Class!



We were lucky to take part in a 'blood' workshop with Mrs Knowles

These are some pictures of our Class Assembly which was all about the Ancient Egyptians, who we have been learning about in our History lessons this term.

We enjoyed using a variety of methods to make a salad; using a spiraliser, grating, chopping and making ribbons with a peeler.  We made a dressing out of olive oil and fresh orange.
Beech class enjoyed making  smoothies.  We thought about a rainbow of colours and healthy choices.  It was wonderful to see the children's enthusiasm in tasting a variety of different flavours.
