Welcome to our Beech class page
Our topic this term is Street Detectives.
Dear parents please click on the icon below to open the letter which details expectations and routines for the Autumn term.
Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we’re going to become street detectives!
This half term, we’ll follow a route around our local streets and take pictures of the buildings, businesses and plants we can see. Talking to residents about the area will help us understand how the local community could be improved. We’ll write poetry and create persuasive adverts. Looking at photographs will help us to spot any similarities and differences between the houses of today and the past. We’ll find out about the history of our school and talk to former pupils about their experiences. We’ll also study and draw maps, create a model of a local building, draw portraits of the people we have met and look at the work of urban artists.
At the end of our project, we’ll design posters to advertise a ‘Big spring clean’ around school before cleaning and tidying the school grounds.
Maths & Literacy

To get into Beech Class you may need to go through the jungle!
We love learning maths in Beech Class. We have all sorts of ways of learning and can find lots of ways to show what we know and how we are thinking.
Castle and the Sun
As part of their topic on Castles, Beech Class looked at Paul Klee's oil painting 'Castle and the Sun'. They created their own beautiful pictures inspired by this, using oil pastels and watercolours.
Learning outside - Art in the Environment
The children in Beech Class went out and about in the school grounds to create artwork by arranging natural objects that they found. The low winter sun cast shadows that became part of the some of the finished works. They worked carefully and thoughtfully, with some lovely results. And...it was great fun!
