Welcome to Birch Class.
Mrs Dunne is our class teacher and our teaching assistant is Mrs Lambarth.
To begin the year the daily routine will be structured in a similar way to that which the children experienced in Reception. They will have daily phonics, literacy and maths and topic in the afternoons. Our topic for the first term is toys. The children will be learning about how toys today are different from toys in the past in History, and designing a chair for their toy in Design Technology.
In Science they will be learning about their 5 senses and naming parts of their bodies. In Art they will be learning to mix colours and explore the works of different artists. In RE we will explore the Creation story.
The children will do PE twice a week, outdoor PE on a Tuesday and indoor PE (gymnastics this term) on a Friday.
Our Forest school day is Wednesday afternoons this term. We are looking for volunteers to accompany us to Forest school. This is a great opportunity to see how much children learn in an outdoor environment.
We are also looking for volunteers to read with the children, so if you could spare any time in an afternoon to come and read with children we would be very grateful.
