Our very own Leo Scrivens and his amazing family have been busy helping key workers during this difficult time by 3D printing face shields which they have been distributing to people who are working on the front line for FREE!!
So far they have made over 120 of these face masks and continue to make around 30 a day.
Miss Trevaskis has organised fundraising which all the teachers have donated to so that Leo and his family can buy more supplies to continue making these much needed face shields.
Well done Leo and Thank you for all your hard work!
Dear Parents and Children,
As we begin the process of home learning, I have put together a daily timetable and resources to provide your child with learning activities to complete throughout the day, which reflect a typical day of learning at school. This timetable and the resources will be emailed to parents at 7pm each evening, ready for the next day. Children have also been provided with home learning books and packs of worksheets.
Please take a look at the timetable with your child, find the appropriate worksheet and encourage independent learning where possible. Children may need some support with parts of their learning and I'm available should you need to ask me anything. I have provided answer sheets for maths to allow children to self mark and have another go at questions they get wrong.
We have asked for photos of completed work to be emailed back to us at the end of the day. Please email me at email@example.com.
During this time of change and uncertainty, my main priority is the children's health and happiness. Please encourage lots of outdoor play in the garden, dog walks, physical exercise and fresh air. Get creative with art, music and dance or do some cooking, gardening or yoga. I'll also be sending over some fun challenges to keep them entertained when they aren't busy learning.
Please bear with us as we are all trying to do our best and please email me if you have any questions or suggestions.
As part of our topic on World War II, Poppy Hilditch put together a wonderful presentation about her part German / part British family and their lives in the war. Fantastic work Poppy - well done!
Beech class pupils had a fantastic time exploring STEAM museum as part of their World War II topic.
They spent the morning experiencing what it would have been like to live in a city during the war and have to take shelter from the bombing during air raids. After that they took a train ride as evacuees to the safety of the country where some were chosen by rural families, including the local vicar (the part of which was played by our very own Mr John!).
In the afternoon the children explored the museum and learned about the roles that men and women played during WWII as well as how industry, manufacturing and engineering changed in the 1900s.
(They also enjoyed playing on the trains!)

This week in science, pupils used their knowledge of the water cycle to make working models out of plastic. Water was added to one side and pupils had to try (through a process of evaporation and condensation) to get water to pass to the other side by leaving the models out in the sun.
The experiment was very successful with most pupils able to get water to pass from one side of their water cycle model to the other. Well done Beech Class!!
