Welcome to Beech class, or ‘Brilliant Beech’ as we like to call ourselves, because of our positive attitude to learning. Our motto is: Brilliant Beech, we can do it! (Come and see our flag!)


Right now we are learning a great deal about the Romans who came to England over 2,000 years ago. In fact our visit to Fishbourne Roman Palace was an excellent starting point and it got us thinking about how amazing the Romans were with their building and engineering skills, their decorating and artistic skills, their organisation and defending skills and even their fashion. We even decided to make our own mini museum with ‘artefacts’ displayed that could have been found by the archaeologists.


In Maths we are enjoying the challenges presented by 4 digit numbers and generally enjoying finding ways to make maths work for us (it’s all around us). Our stories in English are being developed using a story set in Roman times too. It is lovely to see how creative and descriptive the children are becoming in their writing.


Apart from the Fishbourne trip, a highlight of the term so far has been our first Forest School lesson. Fortunately it was dry but I don’t think it will stay that way so bring your old trousers and wellies!
