Birch Class – Y3/4

A very warm welcome to Birch Class!

Year 3 and Year 4 make up Birch Class, whereby the children reinforce strong foundations and extend their learning across the lower Key Stage Two Curriculum.

Children build upon core subjects Literacy, Numeracy, Science &  R.E. along with a wide variety of topic focuses. Topic provides children the opportunity to learn about the wider world and apply key skills within interesting collaborative projects and gain independent learning experiences.

Within this stimulating learning environment, differentiated learning activities meet the abilities of all children while promoting a love of learning.

Class teacher: MR Milner

Useful resources

We are using ClassDojo http://www.classdojo.com as our rewards and this will link directly to the house points.  There are also some good short Big Idea videos on subjects like Mindfulness.

While challenging learning multiplication facts is essential within Key Stage Two, help your child learn their multiplication facts fluently through fun timetables games. Visit the site below for some fun starter ideas:http://www.maths-games.org/times-tables-games.html
