Today we did our Malvern assembly!!!!
We all enjoyed doing it and every person in the audience loved it. We sang Ain't no moutain high enough
which reminded us of Malvern. We did favourite parts, funny parts and feelings. We had the Malvraps , Lani's poem and Lia's and Kelly's poem. They were all great.
Mrs Woodbine put lots of decorations up for us and we all are very greatful. Thank you to Mrs Sweeney aswell for doing the script. We all had a special sparkly sticker from Mrs Sweeney and even Mrs Woodbine and Mrs Sweeney had one.Thank you everyone who was involved in the assembly including the audience!!!!!!
We are also having an Inspire Workshop next Monday and we are all looking forward to it. We will put some more on about the workshop when we have had it.
This week has been a very busy week for the year 4's
because we went to Malvern!!!!!!!
We went to Malvern with Miss Davies and Mrs Woodbine.
When we got to Malvern they put us in groups
Miss Davies was with group one and Mrs woodbine was with group 2.
Group 1 first activities were the zip wire and archery.
Group 2 first activities were the archery and quadpole.
We also had 2 evening activities the 1st one was nightwalk
that was so much fun, but VERY cold!!!!!!
The 2nd one was the punch trail we had to go around the centre and look for the numbers
and punch it with a punch that was like a stapler.
That is all we have to tell you because otherwise we will fill the whole page
but if you want to find out more you can look at our Malvern board.
We've had a busy few weeks since our last update! We've been taking part in football and hockey tournaments and two of us went to a Dance Workshop at Finstall First School.
The football took place at Parkside Middle School in Bromsgrove. We were placed in teams with children from different schools, the teams were named after countries and we took part in the tournament.
The Quicksticks Hockey took place at Bromsgrove School. The children played in two different teams. The green Beoley team won! Congratulations! Thank you to the family members who helped with lifts.
The Eco Committee visited the Worcester Resource Exchange with Miss Davies, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Johnson this week. They went to collect resources for our Eco Day tomorrow! Look out for a picture in the Standard!

St. David's Day
This week Nick from the Malvern Outdoor Centre came into school to tell us all about what we will be doing there. We had to put some of the equipment on including helmets, waterproofs and harnesses. It was very funny! We had some team challenges to make shapes out of rope. His visit helped us to understand more about the centre and now we really can't wait! When we go we are going to go on the zipwire, the obstacle course and the bridges and we are looking forward to the night walk.
We have been using our bodies to make different shapes and words in gym in PE.
We have also been writing poetry about our favourite things in English. Darcey wrote about hedgehogs and cats and Tia wrote about fairies.
We have been working with and finding out about our learning partners. Jasmine thinks that working with learning partners is good to help us to find out more about each other.
23rd February 2012
Welcome to our first entry as a class! We are very excited to tell you that we will be providing you with regular updates about what we have been doing in Beech class.
We have decided to call our outdoor sessions Thrilling Thursdays. We have been making bird food using popcorn, raisins and fat balls and have been on welly, twig and leaf hunts. We were lucky enough to go for a walk in the snow before Half Term because Mrs Woodbine has finished her First Aid training and had great fun making snow angels on the hill! We also spotted a badger's footprint in the snow! Thrilling Thursdays links in with our Environment topic work.
Mrs Sweeney is very pleased to be back and is enjoying teaching us. She is especially impressed with our Maths skills.
We are looking at Changing Materials in Science and can't wait for our visit to the Big Bang Live in Birmingham, where we will hopefully see lots of exciting Science and Technology activities. We have written thank you letters to Mettis Aerospace, who have very kindly paid for our coaches. Look out for an article in the Standard!
We are extremely excited about our trip to Malvern and can't wait to meet Nick from the centre, who is coming to school on Monday to talk to us about our activities and answer any questions that we might have.
Holly said "I'm really looking forward to going to Malvern because I can't wait to go on the zipwire!"
Hannah commented "I can't wait to try out all of the activities in Malvern!"
Hello and welcome to Beech class.
We can't believe how quickly this term has gone so far! We have lots of exciting things to tell you though.
Open day was a huge success and lots of parents liked having us take them on a tour of the school and we enjoyed doing it. We put together a French café in the hall, where we spoke to the parents in French and offered them drinks and cakes. We even made our own tartes aux pommes to tempt parents with.
We enjoyed doing Squash in PE. We even had a tournament in the last session! The winners and runners up were given medals and we all said that we would like to play some more squash in the future.
The parts for the Christmas play have been given out and there have been some surprises for some children in Beech class. We are all very excited about the play though and can't wait to really get going with the rehearsals. We are all frantically learning our lines and some of us even know them all off by heart already! We are looking forward to getting dressed up and going on the stage.
We will let you know how the play goes and what Christmas activities we are doing when we visit our page again.
