Dream it. Believe it. Achieve it.

Welcome to Birch Class!

Please find below the newsletter for our upcoming topic 'Frozen Kingdom'.

This past half term in UKS2 the children have taken part in a Dragon's Den style project linked to out topic 'Heartbeat'. The children were asked to create balanced, heart-healthy recipe to cook and present to the Dragons as part of the competition. All of the children loved tasting new foods, creating the recipes and finally cooking it all in school combining all of their skills and knowledge they learned in this topic.

Please enjoy the photos below from our learning!


This week in science, we have been learning about the biological composition of our blood. The children learnt about the functions of the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma as well as their importance within the circulatory system. We used a variety of household items and ingredients to represent each element to make our own 'blood'. We used Cheerios and red food colouring to show red blood cells and marshmallows to represent white blood cells.

National Smile Day 2019

 As part of National Smile Day 2019 on 4th October, the children were encouraged to do a small act of kindness for other people around school, the community or home to make someone smile. In Birch class we took some smiling selfies to share with you all! We hope these make you smile just as much as they made us! :-D

Heart spark day!

As part of our new topic 'Heartbeat' the children participated in a live dissection of a heart! They children investigated the different parts of the heart and thoroughly enjoyed taking part and exploring this complex organ!
