Welcome to Beeches Class!


Welcome to Beeches!!

We all wish that we could all be back together and hopefully the lockdown will be over soon and we will be able to return to normal!  

In the meantime the work that you have been doing has been excellent and I hope you continue to use Dojo to upload your learning.  As ever, he main ways you can communicate at the moment are through Class Dojo and on the class e-mail of  .I will also be running 'drop in sessions' most days, as well as guided sessions, so keep an eye for those on Dojo.

All the home learning activities in the Home Learning star below.  Do what you can and remember you can contact me if you have any problems.  I would ask that you prioritise reading,   practising your spelling and practising your tables!  Remember also to get outside when you can.  Try not to spend all your days glued to a screen and I will try to take this advise as well!!

We all look forward to hearing from you all.

See you soon hopefully.

Welcome to Beeches!

This term have been extremely successful, especially given the current circumstances.  In addition to all the progress made in class, the pupils have had the opportunity to complete Level 1 and 2 bikeability courses, have a day round the school camp fire and participate in the class Non-Residential.  

We look forward to seeing what the next half of term will bring!

Have a great half term.

From The Year 5 Team!

Dear Beeches Children, Parents and Carers.

Well done for getting through this very strange time.  I have been thoroughly impressed how many of you have overcome difficult problems to ensure that you kept up with your learning.  Over the summer remember to keep up with your reading, spellings and tables.

Have a great summer break and I will see you in September!

Mr P


PS For those of you joining Beeches in September there is a presentation in the 'Welcome to Beeches' tab to give you a small idea of what to expect when you come in on the first day of next term.  I am greatly looking forward to teaching you all.
