Welcome to brilliant Beech class.

Come and see how we learn and play.

15th October 2021 - Today we explored the famous artist Wassily Kandinsky, looking carefully at his painting 'Concentric Circles'. The children then used their colour mixing skills, adding white to the primary colours to create their own abstract artwork.

23rd September 2021 - The children had a great time exploring our nature area during Forest School today. You can find the pictures on our Forest School page, see the link above. 

21.09.21 Beech class have been exploring movement this afternoon using scooters, balance bikes, body boards and bouncy hoppers. We also played some parachute games which the children loved! Did you know that children aged around 3-4 years old should be active EVERY day for at least 3 hours, during which time they should be vigorously active for at least an hour? Children this age shouldn't be inactive for long periods of time, unless they are asleep! Try to help to build up their stamina for physical exercise by trying some new activities together, like swimming, cycling or even Joe Wicks!

17.09.21 This week Beech class have been taking care of herbs, making friends, creating and climbing and having lots of fun too!

13th September 2021 - Today Reception have been drawing themselves, I wonder if you can tell who is who?
