Welcome to Birch!

Welcome back! It’s so lovely to see the sun shining, which has provided us with more opportunities for outdoor based learning.
Birch class have been enjoying the milder weather as they start a new PE unit focusing on OAA (Outdoor Adventurous Activity). They have begun to develop their teamwork and organisational skills, to help them tackle a variety of obstacles.
We have continued to use ‘The Canal’ story in English, to help us learn how to innovate tales which contain a warning, before applying everything we have learnt in our independent writing. This term, we are also looking at fractions and exploring how the whole can be divided into many equal parts. Quick recall of multiplication and division facts is very useful in this topic so please do continue to encourage your child to practise their times tables on TTRS!
In Art, we are studying Monet and looking closely at Impressionism as we work towards creating our own nature based paintings, inspired by ‘Water-lilies’. This links nicely with our plants topic in Science, as we understand what they need to flourish. We will be conducting an experiment using different varieties of plants so it’ll be interesting to see what we discover!
