Birch

Welcome to Birch class!

We are a mixed Year 1 and 2 class and we love to learn! We are a special group of individuals who love many different things: reading, writing, maths, sports, art and many more. We are very lucky to have not one, but two teachers who believe that together we can reach our full potential and encourage us to always have high aspirations.

Every day we aim to have a PART-E in our class by demonstrating our school values. (Pride, Achievement, Responsibility, Teamwork and Enjoyment) Our teachers have been very impressed with how well we have settled back into school and with our positive ‘can do’ attitude.  It is lovely to see all the children arriving with big smiles and we are all looking forward to the year ahead!

This term we are learning about air travel and our local area through our topic called ‘Flight of the Concorde’.

We will be updating our page regularly with our exciting learning so keep watching this space!

Outdoor learning – 16th– 20th October 2017

This week, Birch class have had a brilliant week reading the story ‘Trees’ by Britta Teekentrup. We have had lots of fun exploring the changes that take place when the seasons change from Summer to Autumn.  

Our activities have included:

  • Exploring Autumn colours on a treasure hunt
  • Tree hugging
  • Parachute games
  • Creating Andy Goldsworthy inspired patterns
  • Creating animal dens using sticks and leaves
  • Leaf throwing

Creating our own aircraft

We have been busy designing and making our own aircraft using junk modelling. Our teachers were very impressive with our super team work!

 

 Our models will be showcased on Thursday 19th November in our airport museum, so watch this space!
