Welcome to Beech
Children in Beech will be taught by Mr Redfern and Mrs Kimpton. Check back to this web page regularly for updates and letters and to see what we have been getting up to!
Week 6: 11.10.21 - 15.10.21
Beech class have had another brilliant week, full of hard work and fun! We have started our non-fiction recount writing, been using columns to solve tricky maths calculations and continued our throwing and catching skills in PE. We have been learning a song in our Jigsaw PSHE lessons, Together as One. We have learnt it off by heart so ask us to sing it to you at home!
Week 5: 4.10.21 - 8.10.21
The end of another week saw us go on an exciting walk around Kempsey, visiting the ford, the Rocky and the church. Take a look at some pictures below! This trip will be the main focus of the non-fiction text we will be writing for the two weeks before half term.
The children have been 'Awesome Authors' this week and have written their own versions of Izzy Gizmo. Everyone has worked brilliantly to practise their sentences over the last few weeks and the end results have been spectacular!
In PSHE, we had a go at becoming a rainstorm, thinking about how this could keep us calm and relaxed. Check out our video below! What do you think?

Week 4: 27.9.21 - 1.10.21
We have had another marvellous week with lots of entertainment and fun (mixed in with some hard work!). The children have been ace and are fully settled into Beech class and life in Year 2. There was plenty of excitement after school on Friday about our Art Gallery, where we had been learning about Cubism and Pablo Picasso. We also had a great time at Forest School (see some pictures below!). I wonder what next week will bring...!
Week 3: 20.9.21 - 24.9.21
On Friday, we were fortunate enough to be visited by Becky Redfern (Mr Redfern's sister)!! Becky is a Paralympic swimmer who won a silver medal at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. She bought a few of her international medals to show us and answered all of our questions. We loved seeing her in our classroom and we felt very lucky to meet her. A few of us were so excited to be able to hold the medal and have our picture taken with Becky, it is definitely a memory that will stay with us for a long time! Becky was inspirational and motivational and reminded us not to give up when things seem a bit tricky. We hope that one day we will be successful like Becky! Check out a few pictures below!
Week 2: 13.9.21 - 17.9.21
Check out some of our awesome inventions! We thoroughly enjoyed being like Izzy Gizmo and loved evaluating each others work. Despite finding some bits a bit tricky, we persevered and tried our best! We showed confidence, independence and resilience to finish our own inventions. Please ask us lots of questions about what we have done, we've worked very hard to complete them!
