Healthy Heroes

Sian Peel (speel) on: Beech Class

Well, what a lovely half term we have been having in Beech Class! We have been very busy learning about the artist Ben Mosley and recreating our own abstract pieces of artwork in line with the topic Healthy Heroes as Ben himself was the creator of the Olympic memorial board and he was an expressionist artist.

We have enjoyed learning about all aspects related to The Olympics, various sporting activities both past and present. 

We have been exploring the story “Hungry Caterpillar” and the children have been very excited to learn about how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.

They have all worked really hard this half term and looking forward to some exciting activities to celebrate the Jubilee.

Little Scientists

Sian Peel (speel) on: Beech Class

Well, what a wonderful term Beech Class have had with lots of fun activities. During this half term we continued our topic on ‘Cosy Homes’ looking at houses from various countries.  We had great fun using the ice, clay and sticks creating our own igloo, mud hut and tepee.

During our RE sessions, we learnt about Hinduism and a particular Spring festival called ‘Holi’. We thoroughly enjoyed creating our own pictures relating to the festival of colour.

Wow, Science Week, we have been little Scientists and have made ‘slime’ and watched our worms ‘Dave, Wormy and Shirley’ in their habitats and enjoyed watching them wiggle around in the mud. We experimented with different ingredients to make our slime and we have all enjoyed stretching and pulling it to see how much it would ‘Grow’

Over the next couple of weeks we are looking forward to Easter and lots of exciting activities. Hope you enjoy looking at the photos.

Transport

Hello from everybody in Class 3, it is very nice to see everybody is back after Easter and have all been very busy the last couple of weeks.

In the Spring term we have been working on “Transport by Air and Sea” and creating our own form of transport, we have made parachutes, boats, aeroplanes and also used role play to create our own airport journey.  

We have some very creative mechanics in class 3.

Welcome back

Sian Peel (speel) on: Beech Class

Hi from everyone in Class 3, it’s been lovely to see the children back in school for the past 3 weeks.  As part of our curriculum we have been listening to Vivaldi’s 'Four Seasons' and creating artwork whilst listening to the music. There were some lovely masterpieces!

Class 3

Music

Sian Peel (speel) on: Class 3

Class 3 have been very busy this term.  We have been enjoying our new topic in History, learning about a selection of classical musical composers and associated music from around the world.  As a class we have listened and made choices of our favourite piece.

We have also been very lucky to have South Ribble dance coach in on a weekly basis for the last 6 wks.  She has led sessions to music accompanied with ribbons, streamers and pom poms!  We have all had a very enjoyable time!

As a class we would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Class 3

Welcome back

Steph Wilde (swilde) on: Class 3

Welcome back, in Class 3 we have new staff to join the team; Zelda, Sian, Sharron and Lisa.  We have an exciting new term ahead with our topic 'Music Moasic'.  As a group we have been listening to a variety of music by artists Elvis Presley, The Beatles and David Bowie.  A firm favourite being 'Yellow Submarine', instruments were chosen and as the music played, the group listened to the beat and played along.  We have all become friends in Class 3 and enjoy spending time together both in the classroom and outside.
