As we come to the last few days of the year. We just wanted to say thank you for letting us teach your children. It has been a wonderful year and there have been so many highlights. We hope you enjoy looking at all the photos on here over the summer and we know your children will make some more fantastic memories in Year 4. Thank you for all your support this year and to those of you kind enough to give up your time to come in and help. We look forward to 'bumping' in to everyone next year and continue to watch them grow.

Which way? We lead each other through a maze on the floor by giving directions on which way to turn and what sort of turn we should make. Great teamwork!

Egyptian Non Chronological Reports have arrived in Beech Class! We have spent 3 weeks note taking, drafting paragraphs and publishing our writing to create our own factual reports about different topics in ancient Egypt. Everyone took such pride in their handwriting and being careful to spell words correctly. We are proud of our finished pieces. We can't wait to show you them!

Friendship and Celebration Friday! Every Friday afternoon we are going to be thinking about how Beech Class are superstars. Each week we will look at something different and complete a task related to our theme. Last week we looked at 'How I am amazing' and thought about the different ways we are helpful or have a talent to share. Perhaps every Friday you could ask your child what it is we have thought about this week and how they relate to our topics. Next week is related to our pebble book 'Only One You'.

'I know my nine times table - do you??' Today we entertained the school with our 9 times table song on Percy Parker. We LOVE the 9 times table! We know it rather well now and even made up our own dance to the chorus. Miss Powell was so proud!

Wellness Week! This week has been all about a healthy body and a healthy mind. We have taken part in a skipping jump rope challenge, played Lacrosse, had a workshop from the RNLI and today we finished off with some mindful yoga. Topped off with Stone Age day on Wednesday, its been a pretty amazing week!

What a brilliant day we had for Stone Age Day today! We loved having our special visitor, Dr Robert Jones, in today to take us through a journey through time back to the Stone Age. We pretended to hunt animals, make tools and cook around a camp fire and met Om - a girl from the Stone Age. It was amazing to hear that a book was written about his adventures - a book we read called The Stone Age Boy! The children's outfits were great and really got us in the mood! We also spent the afternoon creating some masterpieces of Stonehenge. What a fab way to end our topic.

The Year 3 Stone Age Museum is open! Thank you to all the folks who came to our Stone Age Museum on Friday it was so amazing to see so many people there to see the children's hard work. This is our finished museum!

We have finished our Non-chronological reports and we are super proud! We have worked for 2 weeks on these and everyone has worked hard to contribute to their group poster. I love that this project all comes from the children's ideas and, as a group, they decide how things should progress. We shared our finished products in a class gallery before putting them up on the wall to go with our artefacts ready to open our museum.

World Book Day! What another brilliant day it has been. Today we read enough books for 1 every hour of our school day. I even had someone who wanted to read their own book to the class! Most of my photos from today were blurry for some reason but here we are in the Reading Tent where we shared time with Dragonflies class. We drank hot chocolate and ate a biscuit whilst we listened to our buddy read. Miss Powell read The Disgusting Sandwich around the 'camp fire'. A great day all round

I love moments like this in school! When a child faces a challenge and, even if it takes a bit of time, they don't give up. This is one of the 'wet play' challenges we have recently added to our games cupboard and it was lovely to see a growth mindset in action. Well done!

What might it have been like in the Stone Age? The past 2 weeks we have been working so hard researching and writing our non-chronological reports about the fantastic time in history. Below are photographs of the start of this process where each child researched one part of Stone Age Life and then fed back to their group what they had learnt. It was great to see each child having the confidence to speak in front of their group. These will go with our Stone Age artefacts that were made over half term to make our Stone Age Museum!

There is 'Only one you' and you are awesome. I LOVE this book. It celebrates our uniqueness and opens our minds to the difference we can make in the world. It makes us think with a growth mindset and the pictures are amazing. We have each decorated a pebble to go towards our whole school art project (hopefully you've read this week's newsletter detailing the idea). Using 'Doozie' paint pens (which are AMAZING by the way) we designed our own individual patterned pebble fishes. They look wonderful! I sprayed them on the Inset day with a special coating spray and they look even better now. Keep an eye out for our next step

We had a fabulous time on Thursday with our visitors from Year 5. They took on the teacher role to teach us about fractions in a fun and memorable way. Beech loved the games and sheets that the Year fives made and also loved the prizes and certificates they got at the end!

Well done to everyone for their hard work on our reading challenge! This smiling superstar was the first to complete and be invited to our movies and munchies fun after half term. Keep up the great work everyone. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the challenge for the most reads and the most improved. Who will it be this time?

What have Beech been up to recently?!

 

Well, sadly, we've had no camera to record our fun since Christmas!

 

Sooooooo... this week we have been keeping an eye on some very eggciting events in Year One. The eggs hatched! On Thursday we popped by to see one egg at the beginning stages of cracking and, rather uneggspectedly, we saw a one day old chick! Miss Powell held it so we could have a close look. Some of Beech also stroked it! It was soooo cute.

 

We have been working very hard on continuing our learning on fractions (I have uploaded some suggested fraction websites for fun times) and in Literacy we have started our new topic of the Stone Age. Gemini gymnastics are coming in every Thursday to teach us some cool techniques and we continue to think about having a Growth Mindset with 2 books 'The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes' and 'Only One You'.

 

Keep working hard with our reading challenge! It has been brilliant to see so many come in to us each day to receive their rewards. Please continue to encourage your child to take part - it makes such a difference!

 

You are always very welcome to come in and write a WOW card - we have recently celebrated someone joining a Tae Kwon Do class and another explaining all about gravity and mass by balancing a TV remote on his knee!

We had a go at this in class this morning! You have to find the numbers hidden in the Christmas picture. Some are quite tricky! The only numbers we couldn't find were 5,6,9,20,22 and 36..can you find them?

Christmas Craft Day 2018. What an amazing day we have had creating 5 wonderful art pieces! Thank you so much to the kind volunteers who gave up their morning to help us. It was very much appreciated! You can tell by our faces we had a lot of fun!

Thank you WOWSA for our amazing Christmas presents! We are very lucky to have such a brilliant team who raise so much money for the school. They kindly gave us some money to spend and wrapped them up for us to open today. We will love playing these during playtimes. Thank you WOWSA!

In the past couple of weeks we have been putting dance moves to our Percy Parker times table songs. We started with the 9 x table because it is such a catchy song! Then we moved on to the 4 x table and have added dance moves to the chorus to help us remember our times tables.

Kindness Week! What I have loved this week is hearing all the acts of kindness that the children have spotted. I have heard about children inviting others to go through the door before them, sharing things to the classroom, inviting children to play to name a few. We thought about how we could be 'the rainbow in someone else's cloud' and made kindness promises.

I have heard about children inviting others to go through the door before them, sharing things to the classroom, inviting children to play to name a few. We thought about how we could be 'the rainbow in someone else's cloud' and made kindness promises.  10

Kindness fingerflex fun! We made these and wrote our own acts of kindness in them to encourage each other to carry them out. I love that these photos are taken 5 seconds apart and yet so different - hopefully your child is looking the right way in one of them!

During Golden Time this week we made poppies. We have been learning about their meaning and why we have Remembrance Day this week.

This is Monty. He comes in to listen to us read every Wednesday morning with his owner Susan. We are very lucky to have him visit us and we love him lots. Each week different children give Monty a couple of treats to say thank you. Isn't he gorgeous!

British Heart Foundation Day - Isla's Day. What a special day this was. Isla worked really hard to sort this day in memory of her dad and what a brilliant day it was. We learnt a lot about what the British Heart Foundation does and also some fun facts about our heart. Mr Hearty was our super mascot for the day. Years 3 - 6 took part in a 'Body Coach' style circuit session to think about how exercise can contribute to having a healthy heart. We were so good at this that we are going to organise another keeping fit event for later in the year. As a school we raised just under £350 for this brilliant charity!

Our Body Coach circuit session! What a fit bunch we are! Everyone really got stuck in and gave their all to this session. It was amazing to see. Some of us were moving so fast we ended up blurry on the camera!

Friendship flowers - celebrating why we are brilliant! This activity involved everyone telling each other why they thought they were brilliant. What made them special? What do you like about them? We collected some ideas and then put on different songs to dance around the room. When the music stopped we sat in a chair and read the name of the person in the middle of the flower. Once we had written on a petal of the flower we then moved around to music again. There were lots of smiling faces when we read the comments that our peers had written. Do come in and see them - they are in our practical area by the reading shelves. The comments are lovely to read!

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!
