Hello Beech Class,

I hope you have now all settled into home learning. I am missing you all very much. It is so lovely to see your work and see how well you are all getting on. I’ve seen some amazing learning going on at home- one person is learning French, another all about space and another has been planting flowers in their garden. I am, as always, incredibly proud of your brilliant attitude and commitment towards your learning.

Keep up the hard work!


Foundation Subjects

This week, I would like all of us to think about how we can help our community, it has been an odd few weeks for us all, I know lots of you will be missing seeing your friends, family or going out to interesting places. I’d like you to share some of the ways that you are keeping yourselves and your families feeling positive and happy at the moment. Send me your ideas and I will share some of them on next week’s website post. Here are a few of mine:

  • I am spending time playing with my dogs and trying to teach them some tricks- which I’m afraid isn’t going very well but is fun nevertheless! I am also sharing pictures of my dogs with people in my family to keep them happy too.
  • I saw a post on the internet of someone who filled a jar with all of the exciting things they want to do when we can all go out again so I have started to do that as well- one of mine is to be back at school with all of you celebrating that your amazing attitude to learning at home has beaten those Goblins!

I’d love to see your ideas! You could write about the things that you are doing to keep yourself and others feeling happy in your writing books and you could use your sketching skills to draw some pictures to go alongside them. Think about the sketching techniques that we learnt at the very start of the year.

Start Drawing: PART 1 - Outlines, Edges, Shading

In this art tutorial video I'll show beginners how to draw by learning basic techniques in a step by step approach. In Part 1 I explain how to hold the penci...

Exercise and getting out into the fresh air is another great way of feeling good. I know lots of you have been joining in with the Joe Wicks PE lessons. I have given you a nature scavenger hunt to complete over the week. You could see what you could find in your garden or have a look when you are out.


This week, I would like you to help me! I have written some instructions for how to make a sandwich but I think they are in the wrong order! I would like you to sort them out. You could print them off and re-order them or you or your grown-up could write them down for you to order.

I’d love to see you challenging yourselves to write some of your own instructions or for someone in your family to write some for you to order.

I’d like for you to choose a couple of the instructions to write in your handwriting book.


This week, I would like you to work on counting backwards. I have attached some number cards but you could make your own too! I have also given you a link to a game that you could play.

Start off working with numbers up to five and then make it more challenging for yourself by working with more and more numbers.

Use items in your home to help. You could count out 5 of your toys and then count backwards to put them away.

See if you can count backwards from 10 or even 20!

Keep up all of your hard work, I’m so proud of your effort and attitude. Don’t forget that you can email me on

This will be the last post until Thursday 16th March. I have added some craft activities and some outdoor activities that you might enjoy over your Easter Holidays. Take care!
