Well done Beech class for another excellent couple of weeks at school! Everyone has put in a really good effort.

We have been enjoying a focus on 2D and 3D shape in maths. Please ask us about properties of shapes: sides, edges, faces, points, corners, vertices, straight or curved! Next week we begin a focus on fractions; halves and quarters in particular. One important fact for us to learn and apply is that shapes, objects and numbers are only shared into half if the two parts are equal.

In literacy we have been enjoying a focus on ancient stories and myths, including The magic Fish, The Rainbow Bird and Pandora’s Box. We have enjoyed acting, dance, drawing and writing to bring these stories to life. I’m sure we’ll be keen to tell you the stories if you ask! Next week we shall be finding out about Hanukkah and then investigating how Christmas is celebrated around the world as well as how we celebrate in our own homes. Christmas is coming!

Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend!

With best wishes,

Catherine Thomas
