Welcome to Beech Class with Miss Polan!
Class Teacher: Miss Polan
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Dodd, Mrs Hobday, Mrs Black and Mrs Chivers
PPA cover: Mrs White (Thursday afternoons)
On Friday the children spent the morning making bread and learning about the types of food that would have been eaten at a Medieval Banquet. In the afternoon they ate the bread they made and some soup. They were very excited to have no cutlery (as this had not been invented yet)! The children wrote an invitation to Mr Matthews, to invite him to join them at their banquet.
The children loved making bread and many said they'd like to make it at home for their families. Please find the recipe below!
Welcome back and Happy New Year!

The children are super excited about our trip to Chepstow Castle on Monday 11th March!
Please see information in the letter below and give permission for your child to attend by making payment via the online system.
Wow! The children are so good with routine now and are fully settled into life at Bowerhill School. They are coming in independently and organising themselves extremely well in the mornings. We are so impressed with them!
They're in such a rush to get in and see their friends and start their day they often forget to wave their grown-ups goodbye! The book bags boxes and reading diaries box will continue to be at the front of the classroom in the mornings and it's great to see the children taking responsibility for putting the right things in the right place.
Homework will be sent home on the Friday of each week. This should be completed and handed back in on the Wednesday of the following week.
Please continue to read and share stories with your children - not forgetting to record this in their reading diary. All reading counts, they don't have reading books yet so sharing a bedtime story each night, looking at a library book or sharing books with siblings can all be logged.
