Hello! Yet again Silver Birch have settled well after the Christmas break and are continuing to work extremely well. Our topic this term is the United Kingdom. We have already started this topic and the children have demonstrated their map reading skills brilliantly by identifying and locating numerous places in the UK. Our science topic this term is Electricity and the children will be learning about the different ways electricity is generated, the difference between mains and battery powered circuits, creating electrical circuits and the dangers of electricity and how to stay safe. Our PE session remains on Wednesday afternoon and I am hoping to have as many sessions as possible outside. As the weather is still a little fresh please make sure your child’s PE kit includes jogging bottoms and sweatshirt. Homework will continue to be given on Fridays to be returned the following Thursday. 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.
