Welcome to Beech!
Our topic for this half-term will be: Ancient Egypt. Most our writing, reading, geography and art work will be based round this fascinating topic. The class story will be Emma Carroll's: Secrets of a Sun King. We will also be visited by EDF this half-term who will be running workshops linked to engineering and electricity.
Our P.E topics this term will be dance and gymnastics.
For more information, please read the parents' newsletter, which is attached below.

We started our new topic with an ancient Egypt escape room. However, it had a twist. The twist was, they had to get in, as opposed to out, of a tomb to discover what it contained.
In teams, they had to solve puzzles based on ancient Egypt. All the information they needed was somewhere in the room.
When all of the puzzles were solved, they had all of the information they needed to find the tomb and gain entry.
It it gave us a good start to the topic and hopefully lots of enthusiasm to learn much more over the coming weeks.
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.
