Welcome to Birch Class!

We are group of 11 pupils in lower key stage 3. Amy is our class teacher and Rachael, (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday), Alex (Wednesday) Sam and Brandon are working with us.

During the autumn term our topic is Media. In science we will be exploring friction and will be working with the other key stage 3 classes to film our experiements and competitons to see if we can create a protective egg drop.

In English we will basing our reading work on The Dragonsitter. We will be streaming these sessions with pupils in Cedar and Elm to allow our countryside and city pupils further opportunities to mix with other peers and develop their drama skills alongside their reading. The coastal pupils will be able to share sensory stories and activities while working on their communication skills.

All pupils will continue to access daily streamed phonics sessions. You can support your child at home by accessing the rhino readers following the link below. If you are unsure what level your child is working at please let me know.

Please remember to send your child in with a labelled drinks bottle, labelled snacks and a coat. We can provide water and milk throughout the day, but if your child prefers cordial please send this with them.

 Pupils access the outside areas multiple times a day so please ensure they have named, appropriate clothing for the weather. We would appreicate pupils having a change of clothes in school too. We take part in lots of messy activities and access the outdoor area regularly. If you know your child loves water and/or getting messy having spare, named clothes in their bag would be a huge help.
