It has been a delight to welcome pupils back to Beech class following the summer break. The pupils have been doing a great job of showing their new teachers how things are done Beech style. The Beech teachers for this year are:
Ele Arbuckle – Tuesday to Friday
Angela Harrison – Mondays
It’s always nice to have good weather and we have been taking full advantage of it in Beech this term. We’ve been out walking and cycling around the cycle paths (munching a few blackberries on the way) as well as getting out into the woods for some musical jam sessions and into the allotment to harvest our potatoes.
Some of the pupils will be starting to work on the Duke of Edinburgh Award this year and we have had a few taster sessions of possible activities for the Skills section. Last week we tried out clay and music and in the next few weeks we will be trying out woodwork, photography and card making.
We’re all looking forward to a fun filled term, focussing on developing skills, communication, staying active and generally having a great time.
