In Beeches class we are looking forward to an exciting, creative and fruitful year!
We are a class that strives to do our best and embrace challenges. The inspiring and engaging curriculum, along with the class environment, will help us develop our critical thinking skills and make sense of the world around us.
We believe in a caring and supportive environment nurtured by positive relationships with our peers and all the adults that help us in year 4 and around the school. We display our class rules to remind us of our core school values. Our class rules are reinforced with our rewards systems of house points and table of the week. In our class, we use zones of regulations to help us to foster self-regulation and emotional control.
We enjoy having a voice within the school community and sharing our ideas and thoughts.
We are enthusiastic about exploring and investigating a range of varied and rich topics, from newspapers to stories from other cultures. We follow a mastery curriculum for maths and our lessons follow a six part structure, including a talk task. We use ‘star words’ in every lesson and enjoy putting actions to these to help us remember and understand them. We study the Romans in Britain to the Anglo-Saxons, food chains, how sound is made and rivers to migration.
In the summer term, we are looking forward to learning about Harry Potter and writing our own Hogwarts prospectus, to exploring the Vikings and Natural Resources in Northern Chile in geography.
