Beech Learning Blog, Summer WEEK 4

By Jo Mountjoy on Sunday, May 13, 2018 in News. No Comments

Hello everyone! Welcome to a quick learning blog update from this week. The children have had a lovely time doing some very different activities this week – read on to find out more!

In maths this week, we have been learning about movement, direction and turns. The children had a go practically, by following and issuing commands to travel around the classroom, hall and playground. They used language such as forwards, backwards, quarter and half turns, as well as clockwise and anticlockwise. The children also had fun using the Beebot App on the iPads, and following a treasure map full of directional instructions!

In PSHE we made Friendship poems about what makes a good friend, they were fantastic. A few children earnt their special pencil toppers this week too, I wonder who will next week?

We linked together our English and Science this week by talking all about our wonderful world. We were introduced to our new Power of Reading book, ’10 Ways to Save the World’, and thought about things in the news recently, such as the problem of throwaway plastic.

In Science, we looked at the habitats different creatures live in, whether they are in woodland, desert, ocean or even around school! We also looked at microhabitats that minibeasts live in, such as under rocks, logs and in leaf piles. We then made our own bug hotels that we thought creepy crawlies might like to live in!

Thanks for reading the blog this week. I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend, and see you on Monday!

Lots of Love Ms Mountjoy x
