Beech Class

Beech Class - Year 5 & 6

Class Teacher: Mrs James

PE Days:

Our PE days over terms 3 & 4 are Mondays and Fridays. The children will have a multi-skills session, with Matt, on a Monday afternoon. Then, on a Friday, we will be doing a variety of other team game and skills based sessions. 

Reading:

Every child will be given a reading book and a reading bookmark to take home with them. The bookmark should be dated and signed every time the child reads to an adult. If your child would prefer to read a book from home, then let me know and we can discuss this. 

Snack:

Please could you ensure that your child has a small, healthy snack for snack time. They should bring in a piece of fresh or dried fruit, or vegetable (e.g. carrot sticks, cucumber etc). Please also remember that nuts are not allowed in school due to allergies. Thank you! 

Mill on the Brue Residential

Year 6 from Rowan and Beech had a fantastic time on their residential trip to Mill on the Brue. They took every opportunity to challenge themselves in tackling assault courses, gladiator walls, zip wires, rifle shooting and much more!
