Autumn Term Updates

Class Update - Week Beginning 20th November 2023


Anyone who keeps learning, stays young!


Week Completed ✅

No shocks here, another top performance from the Brilliant Beavers! We got very technical in D&T learning all about cams and followers ⚙️, did some amazing discussion around loss and bereavement in PSHE 💗 and to top it all off brought out our inner 'sparky' drawing electrical circuits ⚡.

I cannot believe how quickly this term is going, December is already closing in! ❄️

Have a great weekend! See you next week! 👋

Class Update - Week Beginning 13th November 2023


Champions Keep Playing Until They Get  It  Right!


Another fabulous week done and dusted by Brilliant Beavers! The trip to Nottingham Castle was a huge success, the children were complimented continously for their amazing behaviour. On top of that, we have learned all about King Richard and Prince John's fight for Nottingham Castle, continued our persuasive writing about plastic pollution (some real talent in the guilt department) and started learning about formatting documents on Microsoft Word.


Check out our photos on the slide show!

Class Update - Week Beginning 2nd October 2023


Never stop learning, life never stops teaching!


Wow, these weeks are just flying by! 🪁

No surprises here, another fabulous week of hard work from Class 2. This week we've learned all about democracy in PSHE, created our own polystyrene stencils as well as painted our Northern Lights-inspired backgrounds in art as well as learning about the indigenous people of the Arctic Cirle, decribed our clothing in French and started planning our very own stories inspired by 'The Present'.




Have an amazing weekend and I will see you all on Monday.



Class Update - Week Beginning 25th September 2023


It doesn't matter what others are doing, it only matters what you are doing.


Week 4 - COMPLETE! 😎

Still no signs of slowing down from the Brilliant Beavers.


This week we've created some prints of Inuit-inspired artwork; the children created their very own stencils of some well-known creatures that live in the polar regions as well as exploring colour schemes to enhance their images, researched the different biomes found in the polar regions and went on a fact hunt for information on each and learned how to describe our appearance in French; focusing on our 'cheveux et les yeux'.


All in all, not a bad week's work!




Class Update - Week Beginning 18th September 2023


Opportunities don't happen, you create them!


I can't believe we are already steamrolling towards the halfway point of Autumn 1, the children show no signs of slowing down and just keep diving into our learning with incredible attitudes! Here is what we got up to this week:


In English, we found out that the present we are writing about is a puppy! However, we looked at the emotions that would be attatched to receiving one as a gift (as well as the contrasting emotion that might accompany it if the puppy was as you might imagine). In Art, we explored various techniques that are popular amongst Inuit artists, we applied various colour schemes to our sketchbooks in order to help us plan our own work later in the half term. In science, we looked at the various stages of human development (we realised there are far more than we thought) and what might accompany each stage. 





Class Update - Week Beginning 11th September 2023


“You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.”


Another week done! 😎

The children have been amazing yet again!

In English, our stories about 'the present' are starting to take shape (we added comparative and superlative language as well as modal verbs and complex sentences). In Geography, the children did birilliantly well using secondary research to compare the climates and topography of the polar regions. In Computing we explored how to use the computer programme 2DIY3D in order to create our own computer games (I think we have some budding programmers).



Have an amazing week! See you on Monday! 👋

Class Update - Week Beginning 4th September 2023


'A Truly Brilliant  Beginning'


I have to say that I have been simply amazed by the incredible start we have made in Brilliant Beavers, every single child has shown true GRIT (guts, resilience, initiative & tenacity). From the second they walk in the door to the second they leave, I see nothing but 100%.


This week we got up to...


Starting our Write Stuff unit about a short CGI film called 'The Present'. The children had an amazing time identifying the sounds of war and implementing skills such as relative clauses, onomatopoeia and inverted commas!


We had a fascinating time learning about Inuit Artwork. we looked at a variety of techniques such as printing, stencil and sculpting. We were lucky enough to learn about the works of the world renound Kenojuak Ashevak!





See you next week!
