Welcome to Birch class page. We are a class of EYFS, Year one and Year two children who share a great classroom and even better outside space at the back of the school. The class teacher is Mrs. Potter who works full time to oversee the three year groups. Ms. Cannon supports with the EYFS children for the majority of the week and is their key person. On Wednesday and Friday afternoons Miss Steer gets to works with them. Also in our team is Mrs. Richardson who works with the class on Wednesday afternoons and Mr. Tanner who teaches PE on Tuesday mornings. We look forward to posting lots of amazing photos on here so you can see what we are up to.

Our first day of school

This is what Maths looks like in Birch class in September. Everyone has really enjoyed using practical equipment to show their learning.

Today Birch class had a visit from Rosie at Dartmoor zoo. As part of our Science topic of Animals including humans we are learning to classify animals. We were able to get up close to sticks insects, giant African land snails, and a bearded dragon. Rosie helped us to understand which animals go into which group. Then this afternoon we started to make posters to show what we have learnt.

Forest school fun. What a great day we have had a forest school. Everyone got stuck in and had a go at all the activities. We saw great turn taking, team work, imagination and creativity.

Day one of Arts Week. BIrch class were learning about Andy Goldsworth's art with natural materials then they had a go at their own. What a wonderful job they did too. We also spent some time leaf rubbing and painting our Autumn backgrounds.

Arts week day two. Today we were leaf printing with inks and rollers. Everyone produced great pieces of work once again.

Day three of Arts week. Today we had a go at black monoprints using carbon paper and also colourful monoprints by tracing and using pastles on the back.

Day four and five of Arts week. Birch class used a screen printer to create a Christmas card.

Year one and two trip to Occombe farm to launch our Geography trip -Why is it important where our food comes from?

We had another great Forest school session led by Ms. Cannon. This time we made damper bread, Christmas decorations and leaf garlands. In the afternoon when we had free play the children made dens, used the charcoal made on the camp fire, and clay creatures.

We have been learning to use the 'greater than' and 'less than' sign.

Autumn Poems. Year one and two have been looking at poetry and will then have a go at writing their own.

Reception children have been busy learning through play.

Great Maths work by Reception children becoming familiar with numicon plates 1 to 5.

More great DT. Year one and two taste tested smoothies. Looked at the packaging then created their own designs. Best of all they got to make their own smoothies and then drink them.

Reception children have been working on their letter and number formation -what a great job they are doing too.

Year One children have been busy working with Place Value in Maths. They are busy understanding how many tens and ones are in each number.

Year two children have been busy learning about Money in maths. They can add two items together and show the total with coins. They can show how an amount can be made in different ways with different coins.

In dance we currently have Miss Chelsea teaching us a dance to African music.
