Y5/6 Beech - Mrs Potgieter

Welcome to Year 5/6 Beech 

Term 1

Welcome back to school after a lovely summer break! I have been so impressed by how well the children have settled in for our first Term of Year 5 and 6. smiley


Our PE days this term are:

Monday afternoon-outside

Thursday morning- indoor

On PE days children will need to come to school in their PE kit (blue t shirt, jogging bottoms, sweatshirt or long sleeve sports top.) On indoor PE days they will also need PE shorts on under their jogging bottoms. On both days the children will need to wear socks and trainers to school. Tights are not suitable for PE and earrings will need to be removed.


If parents/ carers need to send me an email message, please get in touch via the school office or the homelearning email:

Rudy's Run, Walk and Prance - We had great fun today prancing around like a reindeer raising funds for St Barnabas Hospice

Rounders in PE

Year 5/6 AP have been learning how to play rounders this term. There has been plenty of healthy competition between the teams.


DT Day

Our DT day was full of excitement. We researched the risks and challenges that astronauts would face on a voyage to Mars and we designed a manned space capsule that had to land safely on Mars. Because no willing astronauts were available, we used an egg. The craft had to land safely without damaging our 'egg-astronaut'.

Science Day

The children completed a range of interesting experiments on our Science Day. We launched a balloon rocket on a string, made very messy non Newtonian Oobleck and took part in many other interesting scientific investigations.
