Beech

Welcome to Beech!

 

Beech Class are SUPERHEROES!

 

What a great day we had, dressing up as superheroes to launch our brand new topic for the half term. 

 

We spent the day thinking about our superhero appearances and personalities and exploring superhero stories.  We enjoyed seeing the rest of Year 2s' costumes during our Superhero Parade, and striking our superhero poses!

 

We have now read three of the Supertato books and have done lots of work surrounding this, including writing questions for Supertato and writing a blurb for the book to encourage other children to read it. 

 

Last week, we worked really hard to plan our very own Superhero stories. We thought of a super name and drew their special logo. We then described their appearance, super powers and the story setting.  We wrote excellent baddie descriptions and speech bubbles to show how the Superhero was going to save the day! We then put all our ideas together in our very own comic strip, ready to write our story! Very well done Beech class. We think your stories are going to be amazing!

Superhero Launch Day

Skipping Day

 

We had a great time with Skippy John on Friday!  We did a great job learning how to skip: we listened carefully to the instructions and kept on trying, even if we found it tricky. 

 

We had to remember to bounce up and down in the same spot and NOT to jump!  We had a go with our own ropes and then Skippy John showed us how to use a long skipping rope to work as a team and skip together.  

 

As the school has provided you with a FREE skipping rope, keep practising at home and let us know how you get on.   

You will also be allowed to use your skipping rope at playtime on the day it is Beech's turn.  

Skipping Time!

Christmas in Beech Class!

 

It has been a very busy time in school recently, as we have been learning about Advent and preparing for Christmas!

 

It all started off with our Creative Christmas Decorating Day! Thank you to your lovely parents and grandparents who came in to help with all our Christmas Arts and Crafts. Our classroom looks very festive with all your wonderful work!

 

We have been learning about Light as an important symbol at Christmas time. We have shown our learning in a variety of ways. We made wonderful advent wreaths, candle holders and Christingles.

 

We have been reminding ourselves of the Christmas Story, and did a *FAB-U-LOUS* job performing LIGHTS, CAMEL, ACTION! You sang the songs, learnt the dances and spoke so beautifully during the performances. You worked so hard to produce such a fantastic play. WELL DONE!

 

We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Lunch with the whole school. We made wonderful party hats and enjoyed a great sing-song whilst we were waiting to be served!

The Great Fire of London

 

We have started off our new topic - The Great Fire of London - with a BANG! We made our very own version of Pudding Lane and (with the help of Mr Rule!) we watched the fire spread, and burn the houses down.

 

We have been learning about the sequence of events of the Great Fire of London, key people such as Samuel Pepys, and we have been writing our own diary entries to describe what happened on each day and how we would have felt if we had been there.

 

We will be moving on to learn about and compare the fire service in 1666 to our fire service today, and we will be writing non-chronological reports with lots of information that we will be finding out.

 

Some of you have created wonderful pictures depicting the Great Fire of London at home. They look amazing pegged up in our classroom! Thank you for putting so much work into these :) 

 

The children have been accessing a brilliant game about the Great Fire of London. Why not have a go at home? It can be found here:

Wicked Wolves and Wise Owls

 

What a great start to Year 2 we have had!

 

You have all settled in really well into Beech Class and have done so much fabulous work surrounding our topic of 'Wicked Wolves and Wise Owls'. We LOVED seeing the Wolves and Owls at the New Forest Wildlife Park. Take a look at the photos!

Home Learning Projects

 

Your home learning projects were fantastic! A huge well done for the effort gone in at home to produce these! We loved listening to each other's presentations about our home learning: asking and answering questions. Here are a few pictures of Beech Class looking very proud of their projects!
