Welly walk with our buddy class! It was lovely to meet our buddy class, Dragonflies, this week and go exploring with them on a welly walk. It was Miss Powell's first ever welly walk! Beech were very kind and caring towards their younger buddies - it was lovely to see. Here's to more fun times with them ahead this year.

Here are some fun websites for practising division at home. We are learning our times tables and the division facts together to see the link between the two. If you know your times tables, you know your division facts - you just might not know that yet!

Growth Mindset - week 2. We have been working on thinking about having a growth mindset - the belief that we improve if we work hard, try new strategies and don't give up. This week we read the book 'The Dot' by Peter H Reynolds. In the story a little girl called Vashti believes she can't do art and sits there with a blank page in front of her. " Ah,a polar bear in a snow storm" her teacher says. Very funny thinks Vashti. Her teacher encourages her to have a go. In frustration Vashti slams the pen on the paper and makes a dot. The next week, she experiments further with the idea of dots and soon she has created enough artwork for an entire exhibition. It all started with a dot. Today we made our own dots on paper. We used water colours and just experimented. We painted with music in the background and it was wonderful to see the variety of dots created. We even created something called a 'not a dot'! There was a real buzz in the room. Afterwards, we walked around our 'art gallery' and then shared with each other our thoughts about the artwork we had seen. Next week it will be our first commendation assembly and I have a feeling we may need to create some dot masterpieces to show! Watch this space...

National Fitness Day! We celebrated this day with some sort of exercise every hour of the day! We enjoyed outdoor fitness, short bursts of fitness, Go Noodle dance fun and finished with some Zumba in the afternoon! I wish it was National Fitness Day more often!

Congratulations to team Smyth this week for having 100% of pupils bring their books in on Monday with at least 3 reads. Many pupils in Beech class are reading 5 times a week or more which I love! Keep it up! Reading is so important. It has also been brilliant to see lots of our Pirate reading challenges this week where we are reaching the first treat and I have a feeling next week we will see lots of pupils reach their second treat! Fabulous!

Last week we talked about what our classroom might look like and sound like to make it the best learning environment it can be. We made a group carousel to write down our ideas about what we might see around the classroom and how our teachers can support our learning. From these ideas we can then come up with our Class Charter to follow in order to make our learning environment successful, encouraging and fair for everyone.

We visited our new library! Over the summer months a team of staff completely transformed the Grove library in to a beautiful, open reading space. There are lovely places to sit and enjoy the books - I love the Roald Dahl seats and the bright colours around the room. We will visit on Thursdays to listen and read the great selection of books.

What is Teamwork? After our jigsaw activity yesterday, we talked about what teamwork means to us and what it might look like in our classroom. We then chose our favourite ideas and put them on our display. We looked through the photos Miss Powell took from the jigsaw activity and looked at when we saw examples of communication and helping each other. We are great!

Jigsaw drama! Today Miss Powell was suffering with her allergies and dropped all of the jigsaws around the classroom. There was far too many for her to sort herself - how could we sort them and check for missing pieces? Thankfully, it was suggested we could work as a team to sort the jigsaws and solve the problem. Thank goodness! In Beech class we are all important jigsaw pieces who come together as a team. I loved that one jigsaw couldn't be finished in the afternoon so the children tackled it as soon as they came in the next day!
