Year 5 – Beech Class

Welcome to Beech Class

Beech Class, which is Year 5, is taught by Mr Cross who is supported by Miss Keen. Mr Fisher joins us in a morning and Mr Smith supports on a Monday afternoon.

In Beech Class we are a team where everyone works together to help each other. We have terrific fun learning with fabulous ideas and plenty of smiles.

In the summer term we will be exploring the variety of journeys that people have made in Topic and we will be looking at gravity, air resistance, water resistance, friction and levers/pulleys in Science. We really enjoy reading and our class novel this term will be ‘The Explorer’ – one of Mr Cross’
favourite books; our English lessons will be shaped around this and the children love linking their writing to the book. The children will also be exposed to various types of text in reading such as fiction, non fiction, poetry and song. In PSHE we will be looking at how to be a good citizen and in D&T the children will create an animal monitoring device.

We have excellent working walls that are there to assist the children with their learning and they are encouraged to use dictionaries, thesauruses, or any of the maths resources to help them with their work.
