Welcome to Brilliant Beech Class!
Creative Arts Week
What a busy week it has been! We have enjoyed taking part in a variety of drama, music and art activities!
On Monday, students from Applemore college led an exciting drama session linked to our Owls story writing. We learnt about showing a story using freeze frames which was great fun.
On Wednesday, we learnt about Fijian culture. We were very lucky to have some of our Fijian families come in to answer our questions. They taught us a brilliant Fijian dance and they even made delicious Fijian food for us to taste. We learnt that a lot of their recipes include coconuts as this is plentiful in Fiji.
On Thursday, we were treated to a music concert and listened to some great songs including music from Trolls, Moana and Harry Potter. In the afternoon, we used acrilyic paint to decorate lots of poppies with Mrs Rhodes - they look fantastic outside the school.
Every morning we listened to a new piece of classical music, as well as practising for Harvest Festival too!
This has all been alongside our fantastic Hone Learning presentations as well as our learning in Maths and English. We have been working really hard on multiplication and are getting good at counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s to solve a range of problems. We have also been writing different types of sentences linked to the book ‘Hoot Owl’. We have thought about how to make our writing more interesting by using words like 'because', 'but', 'so', 'however'. Well done Beech Class!
We have been busy thinking about what makes a SUPER learner.
The children were introduced to some superheroes with some very important learning powers:
Master Resilient - never gives up even if something is a challenge.
Awesome Resourceful - gets the best resources to help - a sound mat to help with writing or maybe a hundred square to help in maths.
Captain Teamwork - offers ideas but also listens carefully to others.
Super Reflective - checks work back to see if it can be improved.
Beech Class are already showing these important learning powers and are earning lots of stickers! Keep up the good work!
