Class Beech 2017-2018

Trip to Weston Cider Farm- February 2018
Beech class attended a free trip to Weston Cider in February. We had a tour of the farm where we saw lambs that had been born that day! We also saw cows, a huge bull and horse and also a cat! We went for a tour around the Cider mill and we saw the orchards with the sheep and goat in. We then tried some apple juice that was made at the Cider mill and played in the park after lunch!
Chinese New Year Celebration- February 2018
We celebrated Chinese New Year by learning about the story underpinning it and by trying Chinese foods. We enjoyed talking about China and had a go at building the great wall of China from bricks. We explored noodles in the sensory tray, drew Chinese numbers with chalks and made animals from the story using play-dough. 
Avon Valley Trip- December 2017
Beech Class visited Avon Valley Wildlife Park. We went ice skating, fed reindeer's, posted letters to Santa, had a tea party with the elves and had a chat with Santa! It was such an exciting trip and all of the children really enjoyed it! Many learnt new skills and each child was confident exploring the environment around them!
Exploring Outside learning- All year round!
Here at BHPS we love learning outside. We love the opportunities that it brings us and enjoy accessing the freedom around us. We work well together and independently and we learn lots from just being outside! Below are some fantastic photos demonstrating our love of outdoor learning.
Our volcano experiment- October 2017
We had the pleasure of Mrs Hunt, our headteacher for the afternoon. We enjoyed doing a volcano experiment where we learnt about volcanoes before making our own- this was to compliment our dinosaur topic we were currently exploring. We got to vote on the bottle that we thought would make the tallest volcano and then we carried out a fair test to find the answer. It was so exciting-  best bit was watching Mrs Hunt run as fast as she could before she got wet!
Settling into Lunch times- September 2017
We are settling in to full time life at BHPS. We enjoy lunchtime and love the social opportunities that this brings- look at our fab photos below!
Our first PE lesson- September 2017
We had our very first PE lesson, it was great fun. We had simple equipment put out for us to help us learn how to turn take and wait for our turn. We were all very energetic and keen to have a go! We can't wait for our inhouse gymastics sessions!
