Y3/4 class Beech

Welcome to Beech!

We have 30 amazing children in our class. 

 

Mr Dyson is our class teacher.

Miss Nicholls and Mr Razzaq are our Educational Teaching Assistants.

 

Topic:

Our topic for this half term is "Meet the Robots". This topic is very Science and English based where we will be using "The Iron Man" by Ted Hughes in English and focusing on circuits and electricity and forces and magnets in Science. At the end of this topic, we will be creating our own homemade robot which will hopefully include switches, motors, bulbs and buzzers!

English:

In class we will be using "The Iron Man" by Ted Hughes to help focus our learning in English. We will be writing our own newspaper reports on the Iron Man, our own descriptive narrative stories and a lot of character descriptions. We will also be using the film "The Iron Giant" as part of our digital literacy along with "The girl and the robot."

We will using the White Rose Hub to help develop the children's fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. This year we are having a big push on Maths outside the classroom and we have started to use Maths of the Day to put our Maths skills into practice.We also have a weekly times table test on a Friday.
