What does our day look like?

Our timetable is quite flexible, with afternoon lessons such as science, topic and art moving around to suit the curriculum and ensure coverage, but English, reading and maths will happen daily.

What are we learning about in term 2?


Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties...

Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there - dangerous, unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet!).


Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard's class.

What did we learn about in term 1?


Our first topic, 'Traders and Raiders' had a history focus on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Please see attached newsletter and curriculum map for more detailed curriculum information. Do check back here as we go through the term to see examples of our learning!  


How do we reward children in Beech Class?

In Beech Tree class we follow the 5 B’s.


Be Respectful

Be Kind and gentle

Be careful

Be responsible

Be the best you can


In PSHE we have been thinking about feelings and emotions and how these impact on our behaviour. We have been using The Zones of Regulation to describe and discuss our emotions. Please follow the links for more information.

Suggested webpages– a fantastic collection of games to help improve estimation skills– some of these games promote reasoning and strategy. Make sure you practice ‘4 in a row’ lots, Mr Spiers has never been beaten at this game!– further logic games. ‘Trap the mouse’ is particularly recommended.
