Birch Class

Welcome to Birch Class!
Birch Class have been learning about Oceans and Continents this term! Our English texts linked to this, including the fabulous book "Where Ocean Meets Sky." Here are our innovated stories based on this book! 
Birch Class had fun creating a boat for Finn (a character in Where Ocean Meets Sky). They worked collaboratively to design then construct their boats out of recycled materials.  
PE fun!
Here are Birch Class practising the tactics of attack and defence during the PE unit on invasion games. The pirate game was such fun and involved the need to change direction or speed to reach the treasure...
Forest School Fun. As part of our Building Learning Power focus on Resilience, Birch Class took part in a fun filled day of Forest School activities involving perseverance and collaboration. We built shelters, learnt how to use the flint and steel to make hot chocolate and survived crossing the swamp! 
Starry, starry night...Birch Class artists have been learning about the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh. They used oil pastels and a paint wash to copy the style and composition of the famous painting; Starry Night. Wow, such amazing art work Birch Class!
