Dear Beech Class,
Firstly, I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. I understand that what we all experiencing at the moment feels very strange and understand some of you will be worried. Please be assured Boris Johnson and his Government have decided to keep you all at home for your safety and we will see you all as soon as it is considered to be safe for you to be back. Thank you to all of you and parents that said goodbye on Friday and I am very much hoping to see you before too long.

Keeping safe and clean.
This is to reassure all parents and visitors to our class page. Beech Class have discussed Coronavirus and the importance of keeping clean. We are all washing our hands regularly and if they have any questions or concerns we talk about it as a class to reassure each other.
British Science week.
We started British Science week by finding out about the environment of Antarctica and how travel and the terrain has changed , this links with our work in English were we have been writing biographies on Sir Ernest Shackleton. On Thursday we continued our biography work , each class were learning about a STEM person of significance; Beech Class were learning about Katherine Johnson. We all agreed she was an inspirational lady who fought against adversity to become the very best in her field, her life sparked many conversations about how humans treat each other and equal rights.
We finished the week by taking part in 'Tip the ship' with some surprising results.
Welcome to Beech Class!
World Book Day
Busy first week back.
Beech Class have had a week full of new learning. In English we started our new Learning journey and used our historian skills and inference skills to study photographs and were surprised to find that they were of the same man - Ernest Shackleton; we have started to explore the book 'Shackleton's journey' and are gathering information to produce biographies. In Geography we have been using our map and research skills to learn more about the River Anton and are wondering if we are going to be experiencing flooding. We enjoyed our first swimming lesson at Andover Leisure Centre.
