Welcome to Birch Class

Picture 1

A warm welcome back to you all!


It has been a wonderful start to the year, getting to know our new classes and watching everyone settle into our mixed 3 and 4 classes.

Guided Reading


During our guided reading time, we look at extracts from fact and fiction books to practise our comprehension skills. So that we are able to provide the children with a wide range of reading material, we do not often use more that one chapter from a text before moving on. We have decided to share the titles and authors of the books we have been using, in case your child has enjoyed the extract and would like to read on. We hope that you find this useful when choosing potential reading material for your child.

Stickability Quizzes - Maths


After each topic in maths, we have been giving the children quizzes to check their recollection of key aspects. They are a useful tool to make sure that children are still able to use important skills, even when the maths that they are currently learning has moved on. 


We will be adding these quizzes once the children have taken them, so that you can support your child with any areas that they are not confident with.
