Year 5 & 6 - Beech Class

smileyWelcome to Beech!smiley


This half-term, our topic will be: The Stuarts. We will look at things such as The Gunpowder Plot, civil war, the plague and The Great Fire of London. This will give us lots of opportunities for reading and writing. We will also undertake lots of drama based on the major events of this period. The class will also be visited by The Museum of Somerset who lead a workshop on "The Gunpowder Plot".


Our P.E topics this term will be dance and gymnastics.


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

Lots of our English work has been based around the book, "The Journey" and we have enjoyed examining the illustrations in the book and making inferences about the characters' feelings and motives. 
Nether Stowey pupils recently took part in a cyclo-cross event. We finished first and progress to the county finals. Well done everyone!
In Beech Class, we love art. We spend time improving our skills, before putting them together within landscape drawings, or portraits. 
As part of our work on Romans, we designed and built catapults, visited the museum to see Roman artefacts and tasted Roman food.
At Nether Stowey, we love being active. Cyclocross is something we do every year on the school field. 
In science, we are undertaking investigations. Anemometers provided us with a chance of improving our ability to write hypotheses.
We researched, designed and then made Roman artefacts.
