Welcome to Silver Birch!
Welcome to Silver Birch Class. Our class teachers are Miss McLaughlin (M,T,Th,F) and Mrs McLoughlin (Wed). We are supported by Mrs Longstaffe, Miss Lawson and Mrs Silkstone. As we make the transition between Reception and Year 1 we continue to learn in a provision lead environment which ensures that we are learning in a practical, purposeful way. We have an amazing outdoor space which we fully intend to utilise throughout the year to enhance and extend our learning.
Thursday 7th March 2017 - Silver Birch were lucky to be able to join Elm class for their science lesson. We spent time planting seeds and made predictions about what we thought might happen to the seeds. We are going to record our observations in our Little Bean Books.
What a fabulous start we have had to our new school year! The children have settled in really well and are impressing us with how quickly they are adapting to their new routines. We have packed a lot into the past week and a half, including baking bunny biscuits, making clay squirrels and taking part in a dance workshop based on the story 'Man on the Moon'. We have also been working hard on our writing and have been learning how to 'polish' our writing with a purple pen. In addition to that we are excited to be doing our maths work in a very special workbook this year.
We look forward to inviting parents/carers into the classroom for an informal chat on Friday afternoon.
We are challenging the children to read at home every day. Research shows that children who read at home do better at school than children who don't. Please sign your child's reading log every time you hear them read and they will be in with a chance of winning a prize!
