Dosbarth Beech


Croeso! Welcome to Dosbath Beech,

Our new topic is Australia and we’ve got off to a brilliant start with the children becoming really inspired by The Great Barrier Reef and from this they have produced some amazing descriptive writing. 

Homework  – Thank you for all your amazing efforts with the children’s Egyptian home work from last term.  We were very impressed at all the brilliant ideas.   As you can see we have gone with a similar theme this term all about Australia and the children are off to a brilliant start again.  Every week the children also receive either Maths or Literacy homework.  This relates to the learning taken place during the week and it is really important that the children complete this as I can then see if we need to recap on anything if they have been unsure.

Reading and Spellings - Please, try and read with your child for at least 15 minutes a night.  This will really help their pace, fluency and therefore understanding of their story.  Could their Reading Record please be signed at least twice a week and bought into school on a daily basis. Spellings are given once a week and also need to be practised on a daily basis so they can be remembered for longer than a day!

We will be having an Australian Day on Tuesday February 20th where we will be having a fun filled fact finding day.  Children can come to school in Australian themed clothes.   This could be shorts and flip flops, to a puffer fish from the Great Barrier Reef, entirely up to them!

Our P.E. sessions are Monday and Wednesday. This half term (Spring 1) are swimming on a Wednesday morning. Children are required to bring P.E. kit which consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers.  Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit at all times.

Children are encouraged to log into RMieasymaths regularly, they do have access to this at school but the more time reinforcing mathematical concepts the better. 

Majority of children are now enjoying Book Blog, your child may read and blog a chapter of their book at home if they wish. Please ensure children are taking their time when completing their comprehension and vocabulary quiz, we are aiming for 3/3! 

Thank you for all your continued support, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
