A very warm welcome to Birch Class!
Year 3 and Year 4 make up Birch Class, where the children reinforce strong foundations and extend their learning across the lower Key Stage Two Curriculum.
Children build on 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.
