Looking forward to seeing children in Nursery and Years 1 - 6 on Thursday 2nd September.

High Street, Northfleet, Kent DA11 9HB


Silver Birch Class



 Mrs Stuart is the class teacher.

 The teaching assistants are Mrs Sayers and Mrs Reilly.

 We are really looking forward to working with your children this year.


This term the children will continue learning about Stone Age to Iron Age in History.  They will be using their research skills to find information and write Fact Files.  In Geography, the children will embed their map reading skills as well as learning lots about the different countries that make up Europe.


The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves during our trip to Howletts Wild Animal Park.  They learnt lots about the habitats and diets of the different animals they saw.  This will support their learning during our Science topic next term, Living Things and Their Habitats.  The children were extremely well behaved and were a credit to themselves and the school.

During our Music lessons this term the children will continue learning to play the trumpet.  They have worked extremely hard and are excited at the prospect of playing for the rest of the school at the end of the term.  

As part of our History and DT learning the children researched, designed and made Stone Age jewellery using salt dough.


Silver Birch class have settled in well.  

This term in History we will be learning about Stone Age to Iron Age.  The children will be learning about life in the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age.   Our Geography for this term is Maps and Europe.  We will be learning to locate, identify and label different continents on a world map, with our focus being on Europe and the countries and geographical features that make up Europe.

Our English will be linked to our history and will include drama which the children will be able to use to help in their writing of different genres, including character descriptions, recounts of stories, dialogue and writing their own story using the theme of life in the Stone Age.  During our English lessons the children will be using a new strategy to support their writing – Talk it, Trade it cards – which enables the children to share ideas. 


We have PE every Wednesday so please make sure your child comes to school in their PE kit on Wednesdays.  As the weather begins to cool, please make sure your child’s PE kit includes jogging bottoms and sweatshirt. The children will be learning how to play ‘Bucket Rounders’ so we will be focusing on throwing accurately, catching, batting, and fielding.


Reading records are again being sent home with the children.  Children should be reading every night at home.  I would encourage all parents to listen to their children read as often as possible as this clearly has a positive impact on their writing skills.


Homework is sent home in a Homework book.  This is given to the children on a Friday and is due back in school on Thursday.   Homework will consist of spellings, English, Maths, and something linked to another subject.
