Makaton Christmas Songs
As part of their Christmas preparations, children in Beech have been learning to sign along with the Makaton version of 'Jolly Holly Christmas'. Here they are, concentrating hard to learn the signs. It's not as easy as it looks!
Pupils in Beech Class have been having a great time making decorations for the classroom. They have been practicing cutting, paper folding and following instructions to make 3D wreaths. They weren't as easy as they looked, but all the children really enjoyed it!
As part of their 'Burps, Bottoms and Bile' topic work, pupils have been learning about tooth health. They took pictures of themselves and edited them in Paint software to see how they would look with poor tooth health and reflected upon how this would make them feel. Needless to say, they all decided that tooth health was very important to their health in general, as well as to their self-esteem!

As Tuesday was Internet Safety Day, children in Beech have this week been focusing on how important it is to stay safe online, and how they can make sure they are protected.

We hope you like them!
To round off their 'Blue Abyss' topic work, children in Beech class have worked really hard to produce 3D artworks featuring the layers of the ocean and the creatures found in each. They really enjoyed this activity, and the results speak for themselves!

Since returning to school, children in Beech Class have been learning about where they live in Spanish. So far, they have learnt to write sentences saying what type of house they live in and where it is located, and they are currently learning the names of the rooms of a house. They are really enjoying broadening their vocabulary!
For Red Nose Day, pupils in Beech Class have been on the move! They did some walking and running out in the playground to increase their stamina this morning, and then a High Intensity Training Session in the hall this afternoon. I'm sure they'll all sleep soundly tonight!
