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. Mrs Talbot, Mr Fisher and Mr Smith also provide additional support throughout the day.

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 first half of the spring term we will be learning about the Amazon in Topic and we will be looking at Mixtures and Reactions in Science. We really enjoy reading our class novel and this will be The Explorer by Katherine Rundell; our Reading and English lessons will be shaped around this and the children love linking their writing to the book. They have previously enjoyed The Phantom Tollbooth and The Nowhere Emporium in the autumn term. In RE we will be looking at Christians and Humanists whilst in PSHE we will be looking at the differences between people with different cultures and traditions to ours.

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.

We have PE on Monday afternoon with George Hounsell and with Mr Cross on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure the correct kit is in school on both of these days.
