Beech - Years 3&4

Welcome to Beech! 

Year 3/4

8th March 2024


We've had a very exciting week this week, starting of with a very squelchy visit to Forest School on Monday! We all worked hard to match photos of animals an plants to their names, then made some very impressive dens.


On Wednesday Mrs Peacock kindly came in and celebrated International Women's Day with us by showing us the exciting world of Human Bioscience before we made our own arms using different materials.


Yesterday we all had fun celebrating World Book Day and it was amazing to see so many children bringing in and sharing their favourite books from home.


Well done for all your hard work this week and I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

23rd February 2024


We've had a great first week back after half term this week, full of exciting things! We all really enjoyed our Cricket lessons on Monday and are looking forward to our second lesson next week.

We also had an amazing forest school session, we worked together to create a web linking living things to the oak tree onsite and discussed what would happen if the tree was cut down. We then got nice and muddy building our own shield and stratovolcanoes before making one of them explode!

9th February 2024


Well done for a great last week everyone! I'm so proud of all your hard work in our Maths assessments this week - good job! Also a big thank you to everyone who contributed to our poetry competition, the finals this morning were lovely to watch.


I hope you all have a restful half term, see you all for Term 4!

Well done everyone for another great week! Thank you to everyone who contributed to our poetry competition this year, it was lovely to hear some of our creative efforts this morning.

We've all worked hard this week on our exchanging in our subtraction lessons and everyone has put great effort into including relative clauses into their writing.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

We've had a really good week in Beech class this week, well done to everyone who took part in the dodgeball tournament, and everyone who didn't for being so supportive!


We had some challenging Maths lesson this week that everyone persevered with and we had some high praise from our violin teacher today so a big well done to everyone.

Well done to everyone practicing our Christmas carols this week, we're all looking forward to performing at the carol service in a few weeks time!


We also had a great time at forest school this week building dens and making our own charcoal to do some cave drawings.

19th October


This week we've been working hard to write our non-chronological reports all about the Iron Age - researching facts and learning new information! 

In Science we have learned how rocks become soil over hundreds of years and we will be going on a soil hunt to investigate what types of plant and animal matter we can find.


I hope everyone has a good weekend!

This week we finished off our first set of History lessons on the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages and started our Science unit all about rocks! We learnt about igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks and how they're formed.


In English we completed writing our stories based on our book 'Stone Age Boy' and have started to think about non-chronological reports. Soon we'll be writing our own!


Well done this week and I hope everyone has a great weekend,

Miss Taylor

Dear Beech Families, 


A huge well done to Beech and Birch for their amazing performance this week. They all should feel proud. 


This week we have been learning about the history of Kingswood village and Beech class went on a walk to compare the village from old photos and what it is now. We also found out about different dates buildings were built. We had a look at a virtual abbey to see what Kingswood abbey may have looked like. Have a look at the extended learning page if you want to explore some more!


Beech class were very lucky to have a visitor in this week to talk to us about ancient Egyptians and to show us loads of artefacts and stories about what life would have been like in ancient Egypt. 


Hope you all have a great week end.


Miss Holmes

Dear Beech Families, 


Beech class has been very busy this term. We have made clay models in Art, written some exciting Egyptian Stories, and a newspaper report about Tutankhamun's tomb discovery. We have learned about ancient Egyptians and tried to write like them.  Year 3 sang beautifully at Westgreen. Well done to those who read your stories. 


Yesterday we went to KLB and had fun learning about pressure. We made and launched our own rockets! 


Have a look at the knowledge organiser for detail about what we will be learning next term. There is also some links on the maths page to times table games and how to help your child(ren) with their times tables. 


Looking forward to working with Beech and Birch to create our version of 'Porridge'. Children have been sent home with a script to start learning lines and songs ready for next term. 


Hope you all have a great week. 


Miss Holmes

Dear Beech Families, 


Welcome back! 


Hope you all had a great break. 


Beech Class have started a new topic this term about 'Ancient Egypt' and have started to learn about Egyptian life. We have started reading our new book 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll and have continued to read 'The boy who Grew Dragons' in our Guided reading lessons. We have been using our adjectives and expanded noun phrases to describe an Egyptian setting in English and practicing our division in Maths. Children have been given their new spellings for the week which will be tested next Friday. 


Hope you have  a great Week end. 


Miss Holmes

In English this term, Beech are learning about how to right a non-chronological report. We have looked at what features are needed and next week we will be learning about them ourselves.
