Welcome to the Birch Class Page!
We are a mixed-age year 1/2 class and we are taught by Mrs Balicki (Tuesday-Friday) and Mrs Webb (Monday). Our teaching assistant is Mrs Morris.
In Birch class, we continue the wonderful journey of being phonics experts and our reading really starts to take off! We love books and we promote a love of reading in all we do. We enjoy dropping everything and snuggling down to hear stories or to read some on our own. We also love to write. We use wonderful texts like Cave Baby and Beegu to inspire our writing and help us get creative.
We also learn what makes us great historians and we delve into many great topics such as Mary Anning, the Great Fire of London and Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
We are scientists and discover what materials are best suited for certain jobs; how the human body works; and how plants grow.
Along with many of our other exciting subjects, Birch class like to be outdoors. You will often find us learning on the school field, experimenting in our playground or taking a class trip. We also love Forest School and enjoy this every week!
