In Beech class, the children begin to develop their independence as they grow academically, socially and personally. The children grow in wisdom by building on their previous knowledge through our exciting topics and areas of learning. There will be lots of opportunities for them to shine through assemblies, worships, practical learning opportunities, trips and experiences over the course of the year.   

This year, our whole school thematic title is, Voyage.JPG      Our current topic is seaside.JPG

In English lessons we are focusing on developing our coherence and flow of longer writing peices and will be writing narratives and non-chronological reports.  

Maths will focus on continue work on mental arithmetic looking at all 4 calculations, fractions and statistics. 



Reading continues plays a fundamental part in all areas of the curriculum. We have our reading display ready to be filled with the many, high quality texts we will be immersed in this term. We will be reading a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books including poetry, within our English, guided reading and topic sessions, as well as our end of the day class read. Each term we have a spotlight author who has been chosen for their high-quality texts. Over the course of the term, we will have to opportunity to listen to, read and learn more about these fantastic authors. Helen Ward is our current spotlight author. Having this literacy-rich environment will encourage a positive culture of reading within our class and promote the children's enjoyment of reading.

Please note, book change happens on a Friday.

Our theme of ‘The Seaside’ will take us on a ‘voyage’ back in time. Our history lessons will focus on holidays, clothing and entertainment in the Victorian times and compare this to our expereinces today. We will also explore a timeline of how boats have developed over the years and link this to the RNLI. 

In Geography, we will look at coastlines and climate and explore the different physical and human features. We will be comparing Llandudno to where we live and other places around the world.  

Science lessons will focus on 'Plants' and 'Animals and their habitats'. We will be exploring the differecne between seeds and bulbs and what a plant needs to grow healthy and strong.  

In Art, we will be painting, taking inspiration from the residential trip to Llandudno, the RNLI and seasides.                              

PE is on Mondays and Thursdays and Year 3 children will have an extra session on PE on a Tuesday. Please can children come into school on these days already dressed in their PE kits. 

Homework will be set each Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. Please ensure the children's homework books are returned on a Wednesday so they can be marked and the children's new homework added. 

Please ensure your child reads at home at least 5 times per week.  In Beech, we expect the children to be reading aloud to someone at home and for this to be recorded in their Home – School contact books.  

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
