News and Photos from The Silver Birches

We are Silver Birches class and we are in Year 3 and 4. Our teacher is Mr Gallimore and our teaching assistant is Mrs Jeffs. We take great pride in our learning environment and we strive to be role models for others!

In Silver Birches class, we love to learn in different ways and like to talk about our learning. We understand that learning is a journey filled with wonder and possibility. In our class, we use drama, talk and most importantly our imagination to inspire our writing; use resources and practical activities to support and justify our maths knowledge and we like to investigate and research new topics. We are working hard on our times tables, hoping to know them really well by the end of the year and we are also practising our super smart handwriting.

Homework is sent out on a Wednesday and due back in the following Tuesday. On top of the regular homework, please read with your child every day, noting this in the reading record book. Also, please help your child with their times tables. The current times table your child is learning is in the front of their reading record book.

This term we are trialling the use of Seesaw to log our learning. We will use it to record drama, save pictures, log work completed on the iPads and share our work with other children in our class. It is a fantastic tool to enable children to take ownership of their learning and for them to work creatively.

Please speak to Mr Gallimore if you have any questions or concerns about how Seesaw works.

This year we have some very exciting topics, trips and events planned and we cannot wait to share these with you so you can join in with our excitement.

Pop back to see some more of the wonderful work the children are doing.

Mr Gallimore and Mrs Jeffs took the Silver Birches outside for a very physical times table game...
