Year 5 & 6 - Beech Class

smileyWelcome to Beech!smiley


Our topic until Christmas will be: The Monmouth Rebellion. This is a local history study and will provide us with opportunities to talk about locations the children are familiar with. We will look at who was involved, what happened and why. As part of the topic we will visit The Museum of Somerset and undertake a workshop based on it. Whilst there we will also visit their Monmouth Rebellion Exhibit.


Our P.E topics this term will be netball and swimming. We will have a netball lesson on a Monday and a swimming lesson on a Wednesday. Swimming will begin Wednesday 12th September. 


For more information, please read the parents' newsletter, which is attached below.

Our school council representatives, for this year. 
We visited The Museum of Somerset and took part in a workshop linked to The Monmouth Rebellion. It was very informative and great fun.
We visited Bridgwater College for a morning linked to STEM activities. It certainly increased their enthusiasm for the subjects.
We have been working on improving our water colour skills. The children did exceptionally well and produced some wonderful work. 
We visited Taunton School to take part in a mixed sports event. It was great fun and the children particularly enjoyed basketball and the climbing wall. 
As part of our computer programming, we have been creating games using Scratch. 
Our first topic lesson involved creating our solar system to scale. 

We also became the solar system. It is surprisingly difficult to spin and maintain your orbit path. However, it was exceptionally good at showing why the planets furthest from the sun, take so long to orbit it. They have so much further to travel. 

Our science lessons have included looking at the difference between weight and mass and the different speeds at which sound and light travel.  
Space art! Fun and a good way to consolidate some of the key learning.
