Summer Term - 1st May 2015


We have had a very exciting week in Birch. On Tuesday, we went to visit the Metro Bank in Windsor. We had the chance to go inside the vault, learn how credit and debit cards are made and to play on the Magic Money Machine! We even met Metro Man at the end of our trip. Here are some pictures of our trip:

The experience has certainly started to help us to think a little bit more about money.

As well as our trip to the Metro Bank, on Thursday afternoon we were treated to a performance of the Sword and the Stone by a professional theatre company. We really enjoyed the opportunity to join in with the performance by singing along with the actors, and it was wonderful to learn the story.

In English, we have started the Kate Greenaway Shadowing project. We are looking closely at some of the books and have thought carefully about how pictures and text can work together to tell a story. As part of this, we have composed our own poetry to perform with percussion to retell the story about Smelly Louie. If you want to find out more about the project, then you can visit its website.
