Welcome to Birch!

Birch class have got off to a flying start this term as we headed to Windsor Girls' school to take part in a skipping festival for KS2. Although we were one of the youngest year groups there, we participated in all of the activities and one of our super skippers even managed to skip to 60 without missing a beat! We had lots of fun and learnt a few new tricks too!
This term, we have started looking at stories which focus on settings in English and are learning about all the writing tools we need to use to build suspense. We have continued to use our place value knowledge to add and subtract 10s and 1s from 3 digit numbers in Maths, using place value counters, base 10s and pictures. Understanding and using the concept of ‘exchanging’ has meant we are working more accurately.
Light and dark are important ideas that we have explored, both in RE and Science, leading to some interesting experiments and reflections. Our History and DT topics are also linked, as we are learning about the Ancient Greeks and are planning to use our knowledge to design and create our own filled Greek pitta breads. We’re sure they are going to be very tasty!
We have also been lucky enough to have a Road Safety lesson, where we started to learn about the green cross code.
Finally, we have begun to learn our Christmas carols and can’t wait to perform them at the concert. As you can probably tell, it’s going to be a very busy term
P.S. Library books can be changed on Fridays. If you would like to keep hold of them for longer, that’s absolutely fine – just bring them in when you are ready to choose some new books.
