Welcome to the Birch class page! Welcome back after Christmas! We’re excited about the year ahead.


Our Topic:


Our first topic this term is ‘To the Stars’ where we will be learning all about our solar system. We will be using Oreos to create the phases of the moon and launch our own rockets. We also have a trip planned to Winchester Science Centre where the children will get to explore space in more detail and create their own moving robots.  In LORIC we are looking at Raj Resilience and will be learning the cup song to show resilience when learning a new skill. We’ll also be tasting some real astronaut food!

Accelerated Reading Program

Birch class is very excited about improving our reading and comprehension through a new program in school. We are going to be reading lots of different types of books and answer questions about what they were about. We will be watching our progress over the coming terms to see ourselves getting better. We are very excited about all the new books we're going to read.

There's more information below.
