Silver Birch

Welcome to Silver Birch Class in January 2020


Hi, welcome to our fantastic  class page. This term our topic is South Downs Explorers. We are looking at the local area and the way in which land is used and exploited by humans- as well as studying the weather and comparing our climate to other more extreme environments.  Our class story is Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz, which is giving us inspiration for much our English work; studying Landscapes and perspective in Art; Coding and writing programs for entertainment in Computing; Electricity and Light in Science and learning about Orienteering in outdoor PE. In RE we are learning about The People of God and what Christians believe it means if God is holy and loving. In  PSHE we are working on being Heartsmart. and beginning to prepare for transitions. In Music we are creating a range of compositions using both tuned and untuned percussion. In Maths we will be focusing on the key areas of Fractions, Decimals and Percentages, Measurement and Ratio in the first half term- before moving onto Algebra and Geometry in the second half term. Throughout the term we will be solving Geometry problems and looking at statistical data in our daily Problem Solving sessions (half an hour after lunch). Please check the document below for the key objectives that the children will be working on.
