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 autumn term we will be learning about World Wars in Topic and we will be looking at Life Cycles and Space in Science. We really enjoy reading our class novel and this will be The Nowhere Emporium by Ross McKenzie, followed by When the Sky Falls by Phil Earl; 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 where they will develop their different reading skills such as inference, summarising and author choice. In RE we will be looking at why people believe in God whilst in PSHE we will be looking at friendships followed by Health and Wellbeing. The children will have the opportunity to study The Blues in music and before Christmas we will be making pop up books as part of a Design and Technology unit.

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.

Useful information:

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