Welcome to Beeches!
**Please see our latest pictures of our trip to Goodrich Castle. We had a truly magnificent day and learnt so much! **
Our topic is ‘My Home is my Castle’. We will be finding out why castles were built and discover the roles and responsibilities of those who lived or worked in a castle. We will cover many aspects of the curriculum but our main focus will be history to begin with. After half term we will be moving on to learning geography skills of mapping castles around the UK and the World. We will learn about the continents of the world and much more.
As a school we will be continuing to focus on our listening skills and good learning behaviour. We will be learning techniques that help us to be mindful and focus on our learning.

How can you help your child at home?
*Read regularly with your child, discuss a range of books and practise high frequency words/common exception words
*Help them to learn their spellings. Practise writing them in different ways using colours/paint/chalks etc
*Practise the skills in their ‘Maths Passport’ or complete 'Rainbow Maths' sheets (see below for x and ÷)
*Carry out independent research on our topic to help encourage and enthuse your child.
If you have any questions, please come and see me! I look forward to teaching your children and working alongside you this year,
Rainbow maths is designed to improve childrens' mental recall of number facts. This term we are working on multiplication and division facts. You can download the document below and allow your child to practise and gain quicker recall. We give the children 4 minutes to complete one section.
Can you beat your score and time?
We do 'Rainbow Maths' in school everyday. If your child gets 25 out of 25 for 5 sessions in a row, they move onto the next level!
