Welcome to Beech Class 2017-18.
On this webpage we will post photos of the things that we have been doing in school.
We acted out the first part of the Easter Story. It was Palm Sunday and Jesus rode into the city on a donkey. When he reached the Temple he was horrified to find it had been turned into a market. He threw the sellers out and made room for his followers to pray.
We were thinking about showing character's feelings through their actions. Can you tell how our bakers are feeling?
Beech Class visited the Allerford Victorian School Museum. They began by ringing the school bell and doing P.T. in lines in the playground. After that they dressed up as Victorian school children to do their lessons. They wrote their letters on a slate board and practised their reading. They played with Victorian toys such as quoits, marbles, skipping ropes, hoops and stilts at playtime. They also found out about how Victorians did their washing using a dolly, tub and mangle. Most of the children decided that they preferred school now but a few liked the Victorian school day better!
This is the prayer web which Beech Class children made. They also made a prayer cross which can be seen displayed in the main hall. In addition, they took part in a drama workshop based on the story of 'The Good Samaritan' and created a piece of artwork based on the quote 'Jesus is light'. What a busy day!
