Learning in Birch Class
In Birch Class, we aim to provide an exciting and enriched learning environment through the use of enquiry learning. We take time each week to nurture the children’s essential skills. We take a particular interest in the recall and use of times tables,to support our number work.
Cursive handwriting is now encouraged, with the children aiming for consistency across all written work. We provide each child with the necessary support to develop their social and emotional wellbeing, by providing positive models.
The children will enjoy a wide range of activities, challenges and experiences over the year.

Birch Class has an exciting term ahead!
This term we will be studying Great Britain and Europe examining both the physical and human geography of the continent. We will learn to read maps, use a compass and research a chosen country. We will be writing a non-chronological report on our country, practicing the correct style and formality required.
Our science investigations this term will be based on the forces of gravity, friction, magnetism and air resistance. Look out for falling parachutes, balloon rockets and aerodynamic car designs! Later in the term we will be holding a Science Fair where we plan to display our findings to parents and carers.
