SILVER BIRCH - YEARS 5/6

Welcome to Silver Birch Class- Year 5 & Year 6

TEACHER: Mr Craig Cook-Escribano

Welcome to Silver Birch, where we are made up of Year 5 and Year 6 pupils.  After already working hard at the school for 5+ years, here is where we shine.  Every child is valued as an individual, and given opportunities to reach their full potential and enjoy their learning experiences.  In our classroom we continue to develop independence, resilience and a love of learning.  Expectations are high, active learning is encouraged, and taking pride in work is a must.  Younger students look up to us, and we relish the extra responsibility this brings.  During the year we revise all our previous learning to prepare for SATs, and support each other as our older pupils prepare for their transition into secondary school where they will continue their educational journey

Silver Birch class has recently started to listen to the younger students in Oak class read on a Monday afternoon.  Both classes enjoy doing this and it is helping to promote a love of reading across the school. 

Science - We have been investigating how different shaped tin foil boats are affected by water resistance. 

science - (we have been learning about forces, so this was to investigate what effect parachute size has on air resistance), Spanish (practising their greetings), and Topic (we re-enacted the Battle of Bosworth - socially distanced of course).
