Silver Birch CLASS

Welcome to Silver Birch class. Your teachers are Mrs. Blundell, Mrs, Mahdavan and Miss. Mitchell.

We are learning

This term in English we are reading the stories of 'Traction Man' and 'The Day the Colours Quit.' We will be learning to re-tell the story, write character descriptions, describe settings and create our own characters. Our main focus is ensuring that each sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a punctuation mark.

In Maths we are learning about shape and measure. We will be investigating shapes around us; identifying and labelling their properties. We will also be leaning about different units of measurement and exploring ways to measure a range of objects. 

 In Science we are leaning all about the changing seasons. We are going to look at the different weathers we experience in each season, and also which months belong to each season. We will be carrying out an investigation measuring the amount of rainfall and the wind speed over a short time.


Homework will be collected by the 29th March. Each child will be rewarded with the following:

Bronze awards = 2 pieces of homework

Silver award = 3 pieces of homework

Gold award = 4 pieces of homework.

Special prize for all pieces completed.


PE is on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Forest school will be in the second half of the Spring term on Wednesdays.

A spelling list will go home every Monday for you to practise with your child ready for the spelling quiz on Friday.

Please make sure you read with your child for 5-10 minutes daily and record any discussions in the red reading record. This is changed on Mondays.

Class assembly: Wednesday 30th January 2:45pm

If you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick your child up is the best time. Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at

Thank you for your continued support. 

 Mrs Blundell, Mrs Madhavan and Miss Mitchell
