Pupil expectations for live learning/lessons
Team Birch would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy New Year!
Meet Elvis the Elf!
Throughout this term, we have been learning about electricity, including drawing and building a range of circuits. The children have become really confident in the construction of their own circuits and identifying the possible faults which we might find during an investigation. The pupils have started leading their own investigations in response to a scientific question, remembering the different scientific steps to completing their investigation.
Children in Need
To help raise money for 'Children in Need' children were invited to come in non-uniform for the day! We completed a special Children In Need workout, led by Joe Wicks! Let me tell you, there were some very tired children by the end of the 20 minute session, but they all had smiles on their faces!
In Birch this term, we are extremely lucky to be taught by our very own French expert Miss Hoult! This term the children are learning brand new vocabulary based on the high street and phrases which we can use to direct someone to different shops if they are lost! Here are some photos of our most recent lessons where we were constructing sentences to share in a verbal discussion.
Victorian School Day
In UKS2, last week, we have had a fantastic spark day - life in a Victorian School. Coming into school in the morning, children dressed up, completely looking the part and learnt about all aspects of school life over 200 years ago. Children took part in lessons, reading, writing, arithmetic and religion (the 4R's) as well as drill, elocution lessons as well as looking at a range of primary sources from the era. This was further followed up by playing with Victorian styled toys and obviously singing 'God save the Queen'.
All of the children had a fantastic day, contributed really well and learnt lots which sets us up for our topic of 'Revolution'. Thanks for you support with the costumes.
Here are a selection of images from the day.
