Welcome to Birch!

6th October 2017
I can't believe we're already into October - the past month has flown by! We are now used to the routines in Year 3 and are enjoying our new topics. We are particularly enjoying trying things we haven't tried before, such as French and Ukulele. It's great to see that some of the class have brought in their own ukuleles - don't forget to take them home to practise! We have learnt how to play 3 chords so far (Am, F and C) to popular songs that we know.
We had a lovely afternoon at Windsor Girls' School taking part in their multi-skills festival. We moved around a carousel of activities, led by students from the upper school, and enjoyed opportunities to demonstrate and practise a wide variety of skills such as aiming at a target and long distance throwing, and skills involved in tennis, rugby and football. Well done Birch for taking part so enthusiastically and behaving so well.
I have been very impressed by the projects that have been brought in this week following on from our ILC Day. I was very proud that every member of Birch class remembered to bring something in. We had such a variety of ideas demonstrating our 3 school values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY and RESILIENCE and it was wonderful to see how creative everybody had been. All of the children had an opportunity this week to show their project to the class. We are hoping to allow parents an opportunity to come in and see the variety of projects that have been made so keep an eye on the newsletter for news on that!
Well done on your hard work Birch, and for your continued effort in remembering our school values in everything you do!
