St Edmunds Primary School

Beech Class

Dear Parents and Carers, 

I hope you had a lovely Easter holiday and, like me, your insides are purely chocolate based now. 

What a bizarre school year it has been! I'm thrilled to say that I am back full time as the Beech class teacher and thank you very much for your patience and flexibility with the different ways we have had to learn this year. It was an incredibly challenging time for everyone but your children's smiley faces, witty banter (!) and general loveliness made it so much easier. 

So this half term we are in the hall. This will be our classroom for the time being due to it being far larger and easier to ventilate during this current situation. Rest assured it works well as a classroom and all the things which we would usually want to use are available to us here. 

This term we are looking at the reign of Edward VI in our topic work. We will also be
writing diary entries from the point of view of Edward VI in literacy lessons and thinking
about what we could make to commemorate his reign in DT. In art we are learning
about the Arts and Crafts period and in particular William Morris and will be
comparing his work to that of Clarice Cliff. In maths we will be looking in depth at multiplying and dividing. Science topics will be states of matter and a recap of plants. 

PE will be taught by Mr Hopkinson on Monday mornings so please ensure you arrive either in or with your PE kit. 

As always please feel free to arrange a time to speak with me if you have anything that you would like to discuss. 

Warmest wishes to you all!


Andy Russell
