'Nurturing our children to excellence through Faith and learning'

Beech (year 5)

Happy Easter Holidays everyone!

Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I had a few technical issues!

Well, you have had two weeks of home learning, I hope it has gone well and that you have established a good routine. I have been doing Joe Wicks PE every morning and exploring new things for you to do after Easter... watch this space! My children (quite grown up now) and I are playing Monopoly, doing puzzles and going for a walk every day. I have even seen one or two of you in the woods!

It is now the Easter holidays and the sun is shining, make sure you get out in the garden and enjoy the outside.  Keep positive, keep smiling and being your wonderful selves.

Beech class had a wonderful afternoon watching Patti cook a fantastic bean stew from Ghana.  Most of the children were really keen to taste it and it was delicious.  We learnt about cooking with plantain and a variety of exotic spices.  Thank you Patti for coming to visit us.

The class are practising hard for the Dance Show in March...

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.
