Welcome to the Silver Birch Class!

The children in our class are 6, 7  and 8 years old.


Who works in Silver Birch Class?

Our teacher is Mr Butterwick. On Tuesday mornings,  Mrs Drummond teaches us. We are supported in the classroom by Miss Armitage, Mrs Trapps, Mrs Warriner and Mrs Whitehead. We also have some very helpful volunteers. 

Year 3 work together 3 times per week:

On Wednesdays they work on PHSE with Mrs Dakeyne and on Thursdays Mrs Cloke works with them for their RE and swimming lessons.

What do we learn?

You can download various documents below, which show curriculum coverage and daily routines in Silver Birch Class. As our children are in Year 2 and Year 3, our learning is quite broad. Year 2 children will sit their SATs during the academic year whilst Year 3 children are taught in-line with the Key Stage 2 curriculum.

Our Literacy is often based on our Topic planning, with a writing focus on the famous people or famous event we are learning about. However, there are also essential skills and units that we will look at and the Year 2 and Year 3 'End of Year Expectations' parents' leaflets give an insight into these.   

As you will see from the overview, our topic this half-term is  "Changes in Transport”. We will be looking at ‘being a scientist' in science lessons, where there will also be an emphasis on interpreting data.

In maths we are continuing to use our new Abacus materials, along with the White Rose Maths Hub.
