Class Beech 2018-19

Chinese New Year- Tuesday 5th February 2019

The children in beech class have had an amazing time taking part in the CNY celebration with Elm class. Parents were invited in to attend the special assembly for both classes. We watched a few videos about the story of CNY and how people celebrate. We then tried traditional Chinese Cuisine and then went back to the classroom to take part in some activities. 
 
We had a wall building competition to see who could build the 'Greatest Great Wall of China'. We also made lucky red lanterns and used Plasticine to make different animals from the story. We wrote cards to our families and enjoyed learning all about China.
RE day- Monday 21st January 2019
We enjoyed learning about Hinduism as part of the whole school RE day focus. We learnt about what Hindus believe, where they go to worship and also learnt all about the festival 'Holi' that they celebrate.
 
We looked at different pictures of temples and made our own temples as part of a competition! The best temple won a prize! We also experimented with Old folk Indian Art and made some colourful Holi festival pictures using rollers and sponges. 

In the afternoon, we learnt an Indian dance to 'Jai Ho' and performed it at Elm classes wedding! It was great fun :)
 
The best bit was trying lots of different Indian food. We didn't like the onion bahjis much as they were too spicy but we loved the naan bread, mango chutney and poppadoms!
Christmas dinner 2018!
The children enjoyed Christmas dinner! They all tried new vegetables and meat and sang along to the Christmas tunes.
Bristol Zoo-December 2018

Beech class joined Elm class in the Bristol Zoo trip this December. We had a polar workshop all about animals that live in the cold then we enjoyed seeing Santa! We explored the zoo and looked at all of the different animals. Lots of us loved the crocodiles and lions! We had a fantastic time and even got time to play in the park!

We took part in Lights, Camel, Action and had a fantastic time performing it to family and friends. We hope you enjoy looking through our photos!
Maths/Art Day- November 2018
 
We took part in Maths and Art day where we had activities that combined the 2 subjects. We made bar charts by counting coloured smarties, then of course eating them after! We also used tweezers to sort bugs out and then did a tally of how many of each bug we had. We had a great day and really enjoyed to maths/art related activities. 
Tarmac lorry visit- September 2018

We visited the tarmac lorry in the rugby car park and enjoyed learning about road safety. We got to sit in the lorry and were allowed to watch it tip up and down. We asked lots of questions about how the lorry worked and we discussed how to keep safe.
