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 have an exciting term ahead!
This term we investigate water, rivers and The River Exe in particular.
How are rivers formed and what part do they play on our every day lives? What happens when we turn the tap or flush the toilet? Which wildlife relies on the river for its habitat? We'll learn about each section of a river from its souce to its mouth and everything in between! We plan to visit Exeter Quayside to see how we have used the river over time. Why should be look after and protect our rivers for the future? How is water cleaned and reused?
Our popular Science Fair will take place at the end of term when we hope to share our learning with our parents and carers!
