Birch Class

14.05.2021

Birch have been very busy with all of their learning this week. The children have completed a hot write in English; I am so impressed with the level of work produced. The children should be exceptionally proud of their efforts! We have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes, using mathematical vocabulary to describe their properties based on angles and vertices. We have also investigated the difference between regular and irregular shapes. We have started learning about Egyptian god and goddesses; it is lovely to see how passionate the children are about this project. In Science, the children have enjoyed studying the life cycle of plants. We have seen some impression growth in our onions as part of our ongoing investigation.

Birch have had a brilliant week! We have been really busy across all subjects. We have been applying our knowledge of homophones in spellings, exploring symmetry in Maths and looking at examples in real life and in English we have been planning for our hot write next week; the children have worked really hard expanding their vocabulary. Most excitingly, in Project we have attempted to make our own version of papyrus paper and we have dissected tulips in Science! Ask the children if they can explain the parts and functions of a flower over the weekend

Birch have had a busy second week back at school. We have continued our work on angles, exploring acute, obtuse and right angles. Some of the children have gone on to use a protractor to accurately measure angles! In Science, we learnt all about the parts and functions of a plant. Some of our own plants have begun to sprout in our ongoing investigation! In project, we have been considering the geographical location of Egypt and explored the importance of the River Nile and cracked some hieroglyphic codes! I hope that you all have a lovely and restful bank holiday weekend!

Fishbourne Roman Palace February 2020

Birch class were exemplary today at Fishbourne Roman Palace. I was very proud of them all!

We had such a fantastic day learning all about the 2000 year old remains of the Roman Palace and how the residents lived all those years ago.  The workshop session was particularly fun where all the children were dressed as slaves and had to try out a range of different activities. They experienced bridge building, making mosaics, grinding corn, writing on wax tablets, making a tile roof and making up games suitable for a Roman Prince and Princess.

 

We were amazed by the remains of all the mosaics and loved walking round them all. The museum was fascinating and we enjoyed looking at so many old artefacts.
