Welcome back! We hope you had an amazing Summer.


In English, we will be reading 'James and the Giant Peach' by Roald Dahl. This is such a great book which follows James on an a magical adventure. We will be looking at a variety of skills through reading this book, such as letter writing, playscripts, reports and persuasive writing.


Our Quest for this term is 'Exploring Europe'. We will be covering lots of Geography skills and also 'stopping off' at some of the European countries to gain a better insight in to the culture, food, art, music etc. In Guided Reading we will be focusing on folk tales from around Europe. 


In Maths, we will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction, length and perimeter and mutilplication and division. We will be using TT Rockstars to practice our times tables and also Numbots to work on number facts. 


Please take a look at the knowledge organiser below to see an overview of this term.


PE sessions will take place on a Tuesday and Friday. You can wear your PE kit to school, instead of getting changed. 


If you have any questions then please feel free to contact us on our class email beech@eastsomersetfederation.co.uk or through the school office.

Thank you,

Knowledge Organiser - Autumn Term

In Art, we have taken one of the French paintings that we looked at in Quest and used sketching pencils and pastels to draw our own. We were looking at adding colour, texture and detail...keep an eye out for our finished masterpieces!

This week in our Quest topic of Europe, we have focused in on France. We have been looking at French Art of landscapes from around the Country. We looked at different painting and sorted them in to 4 different climatic regions - Continental, Mediterranean, Alpine and Atlantic.

01.10.21 - In English, we have been learning about the features of persuasive writing. We took part in a debate about whether James should get to stay in New York. We had some very convincing arguments!

20.09.21 - We looked at the features of a playscript and put our acting skills to the test with a play!

08.09.21 - We have been Exploring Europe in Quest. Today we put a map of Europe together like a jigsaw! It was exciting to see where all the countries were and there were some we had never heard of before!
