Welcome to Beech Class (Year 2)
I am Miss Beech, the class teacher and Mrs Thompson is our teaching assistant who works with us every morning.
We are now half way through the year and time has been flying in Year 2!
The children are extremely excited about our new Topic ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ and can’t wait to learn more about different animals and their habitats. We are going to be exploring the wild and wonderful creatures we have around the world and the unique adaptions that make them suitable to their environments. We started off with a visit from Bristol Zoo where we were able to stroke and hold some animals from the desert!

Plan for next Term:
Weeks 1-5 – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
