In Beech we have been learning all about 'Habitats' and what this means. We look at different landscapes from deserts, mountains, forests, 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.
We continued our learning about different faiths following up on British values we have learnt about different faiths including Islam. We learnt about the 5 Pillars of Islam and what this represented to their faith. We tried on items and had a go at using a prayer mat. We watched a video on the celebration of Eid al adha and had a celebration in class.
Some of the class have started a yoga programme. They go into the hall and work with an instructor. It was very relaxing and we enjoyed doing the different activities.
One of the main activities is producing our part of the school performance. We had to learn the story and the songs, create all our own props and costumes, then rehearse the parts. We enjoyed putting on the show for parents and had a great time dressing up.
