In Beech we have been learning all about Habitats and what this means. We looked at different landscapes from desert, mountains, forest, and oceans. We found out that the arctic is counted as a desert even though it is very cold. We learnt about what type of animals would be found in each habitat.
We did some paintings of the different landscapes to go on our display board.
We have been doing Bike-ability where we have been learning how to stay safe on our bikes and got to try lots of different types of pedal power. He learned that it’s important to wear a helmet and it was very tiring doing so many laps of the playground.
In following up on British values we have learnt about different faiths in the world. This time our focus was Sikhism. We learnt about the 5 Ks (Kesh, Kangha, Kara, Kirpan and Kachera) and what this represented to their faith. We tried on items and had ago at Sanskrit trying to learn to write our name.
We also got to watch a production of The Secret Garden by an outdoor theatre company. It gave us many ideas for our own production which we are performing next term. We have started making different props and practicing our lines so it can be as good as the one we watched.
At the end of the half term, we had pupil voice day, all the activities were chosen by the school council. We had dancing from Bollywood to waltzing.
