Home reading: You will bring your home reading book home every night. Please ensure you bring your home read back, signed, to school everyday too. We expect you to read at least three times a week and, most excitingly, we have a reader of the week prize winner for the person who reads the most at home!


Homework: Homework is set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday. Our Maths homework is set on Sumdog each week. These are practice tasks to revise and consolidate maths learning in school. Our Spelling homework is the 'Tic Tac toe' activity choices to practise spellings. Please practice three activities and bring back your signed sheet. We also send our themed topic homework out each half term and it would be wonderful to see at least two of these activities completed over the half - term.


Times tables: We encourage and reward you for practising your times tables as much as you can. We have the amazing online platform, TT Rockstars to practise times tables. The times tables in the 'Garage Band' are set specifically for you, so they should not be too easy or too hard! Every week we have a champion and a runner-up in class - so keep practicing!


Remote Education 

If your child is self-isolating at home (due to Covid symptoms or a positive Covid test result) but are well enough to continue with their schoolwork, then we will support them by providing remote learning through our online platforms and MS Teams. For detailed information on the policies and procedures we follow in such cases, please refer to our school website-key information-remote education section.

Jubilee Celebrations

Roman Day

A Roman soldier Lucius came to our school to spend the day with us. We learned lots about how the Romans fought the Celts, the type of games they played, and we experienced an archaeological dig. 

Caitlin's Diary Entry about the Roman Day

On the 18th of May, Cherry Class came to our classroom to listen to our Escape from Pompeii stories. We really enjoyed sharing our stories with them.

World Poetry Day

French Languages Day 18.03.22

Bonjour! We have enjoyed celebrating French Languages Day by learning new vocabulary, singing French songs and sampling some delicious French inspired foods. The crepes were definitely a Beech Class favourite! smiley


We have taken our learning outdoors today and used nature to create symmetrical patterns.

Outdoor Learning

During today's session, we learnt how to whittle sticks and make damper bread, just like they would have enjoyed during Stone Age times.


Another amazing outdoor lesson. Today we learnt all about Stone Age shelters. We talked about the materials they would have used and how they may have been constructed. With the addition of a few modern materials, we had a go...

Survival Treasure Hunt

We began by imagining that we were Stone Age hunter-gatherers.

Working in pairs we hunted around our wonderful outdoor area for 'assets' that would help us to survive in the wild.

Viking Day! Monday 4th October 2021 (04.10.21) 


Wow - what an amazing day we had! We had a weapons lesson from a real vicious Viking, learnt how to play Viking games, set a fire using typical Scandinavian tools and, as if that wasn't enough, acted out some epic Viking saga!

Beech class, and the whole of LKS2, had a great time and behaved beautifully too. Look at the pictures below of our exciting day.

National Poetry Day (Thursday 7th October 2021)

This years theme was Choice - and in Beech we had a great time exploring poems written by children during the events of the last eighteen months. There was great enthusiasm and excellent poems being created (some even risking rhyme!) before the class performed them. Miss Grime, Ms Burkey and Mrs. Seinen were very impressed with everyone!


Outdoor Maths! (11.10.21)

Wow! Not only did we have to complete some tricky subtraction - but we had to race against the clock outside to do it! Not a problem for Beech class though: they loved working together to find the answers and could not have been more cool and collected.
