Beech

Welcome to Beech Class!

Hello and welcome to Beech Class.

 

My name is Miss Watson and this is my second year at Broughton CE Primary School, although I came here as a child too! We have some fantastic topics planned for the year ahead including 'Healthy Me', 'Mysterious Monsters' and 'Under the Sea'. I can't wait to see what fun we get up to over the next few months.

 

Helping me out in Beech class are the wonderful Miss Bristo and Mrs Clapka, who do a brilliant job as class teaching assistants. Together, we are going to work extremely hard to ensure the children have fun whilst they’re learning.

Easter Gardens

After learning about the story of Easter we made Easter gardens using materials from the outdoor area.

‘Yogi Group Yoga’

This morning we started the day with a bit of yoga. The lovely Clare from ‘Yogi Group Yoga’ showed us some breathing techniques and yoga poses and we ended the session with lots of positive affirmations. Clare was very impressed with how well we listened! Well done Reception 👏👍

Repeated Patterns

This week in maths we are learning all about repeated patterns. To introduce the topic we have made bracelets. We chose two different coloured beads and arranged them in an AB pattern.

World Book Day

For World Book Day we were lucky enough to have a visit from the children in Year 3. We chose our favourite stories and the Year 3 children read them to us. We had such a lovely time - thank you 3D!

 

Parable of The Lost Sheep

In RE we have been looking at stories that Jesus told. One of those stories would have been the parable of the lost sheep. Miss Watson hid lots of pictures of sheep around the classroom and we had to pretended to be shepherds and go and find them. We discussed how it feels when we think we are lost and how it feels when we are found. We also talked about how God is like a shepherd and we are his sheep - he thinks we are all special and will look after us if we ever feel lost. 
We then had a go at making our own sheep using paper plates, cotton wool and black paper.

Exploring Faces Of 3D Shapes

We have been exploring real life 3D shapes. We have looked at whether their faces are flat or curved and used this information to predict if they would roll down the ramp or not. 

Owl Babies

This half term we are going to be looking at the book ‘Owl Babies’. Today we read the blurb of the book and designed a front cover based on the title.

Trim Trail Fun

Beech class enjoyed going on the Trim Trail regardless of the cold and damp conditions. They enjoyed  seeing how high they could climb, how long they could hang on the logs, how far they could walk on the balance beams and taking lots of risks.

Well done Beech Class! 👏 

Daily Mile Obstacle Course

Beech Class had a fantastic time turning our daily mile track into an obstacle course. We jumped in hoops, climbed over crates and crawled through the tunnel. We had lots of fun!

We have had a fantastic morning getting all the equipment out in PE. We used lots of different skills including jumping, balancing, climbing and hula-hooping. 

Fruits and vegetables

Our Spring 1 topic in EYFS is 'Healthy Me'. We have been exploring different fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and satsumas. We have been using different utensils to chop and mash the food and used magnifying glasses to get a closer look.

We have been using our senses to talk about the different foods. We can talk about what we can see, smell, taste and feel. 

Pantomime

The children throughly enjoyed watching the M&M production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

Special Visitor

The children in EYFS were lucky enough to have a special visit from Father Christmas just before they broke up for the Christmas holidays. Father Christmas told them a Christmas story and they got to tell him what was on their wish list.

Shine Star, Shine

Today we got dressed into our costumes and performed our nativity 'Shine Star, Shine'. We weren't put off by all the lights and cameras and know that our parents will love watching it after it has been filmed. Miss Watson was very impressed with us and said we did an amazing job!

Winter Wonderland

We had such a surprise this morning when we saw it was snowing! We wrapped up warm and went on a scavenger hunt to find signs of Winter in our school grounds. We looked for robins, berries, trees with no leaves on and animal prints in the snow.

We had such a fun time but were very grateful for the heating when we came back inside. 

Forest School

We love Thursday afternoon Forest School with Miss Dulley! This week we got to use the natural resources outside to make a home for different animals that might need shelter and warmth during these colder months.

Firefighters

We were lucky enough to get a visit from the local firefighting team to show us the fire engine as part of our 'Trains, Planes and Automobiles' topic. They showed us the different parts of the fire engine and even showed us how the hose worked. We loved it when they put on their siren and flashing lights. It was VERY loud! 

Balancing

We have been incorporating different kinds of balances into out dance routines. We have been experimenting balancing on different body parts. We can do solo balances and ones with a partner too.

Doctor, Doctor

The children are loving the current role-play area set up as a doctor's surgery. They are doing a fantastic job checking that their teddies, friends and teachers are feeling okay.

Forest School

This afternoon in Forest School we collected lots of autumn leaves and used them to create a leaf collage. We enjoyed walking over leaves and hearing them crunch whilst we looked for the brown leaves for the hedgehogs.

Autumn Scavenger Hunt

Recently we have been talking about the different seasons we experience throughout the year. We went on a hunt of the school grounds to see if we could figure out what season we are currently in. We found lots of different coloured leaves on the floor as well as conkers and pine cones. We decided that it must be Autumn. 

Look What We Found

The children were so excited when they spotted a snail in our outside area. They were very careful and gave it lots of space as they didn't want to scare him away. Some children thought the snail might be hungry so they went to get him some grass, what a lovely idea!

 

Daily Mile

Our new daily mile track has been opened this week and we are loving getting out in the fresh air and burning off energy.
