Welcome to Beech class page where you find everything you want to know about our class.

Our first topic of the year is Superheroes. We are having lots of fun acting out superhero adventures and reading fantastic superhero books, such as ‘Supertato’ and non-fiction books about real life heroes such as police officers.

Recently, we have started to learn the phase 2 phonic sounds and the class have enjoyed practical lessons, exploring the new sound through different media. For example, when learning the ‘s’ sound, we used spaghetti to form an ‘s’ shape and hid items beginning with the sound.

Beech class have already shown lots of enthusiasm in maths by creating their own repeating patterns using colours, objects and shapes. 

We are lucky enough to have a visit from a police officer planned for later in the term, which will allow us to hear first-hand about the superhero jobs they do. We are also looking forward to going on our first school trip to the Cheltenham Literature Festival.
