Welcome to Silver Birch Class!


A warm welcome to Silver Birch Class who are taught by Mr Brown and supported by Mrs Stacey, the class teaching assistant. 

This term children will develop their knowledge and understanding of one of the most well-known land forms that occupy Mother Earth—rivers. From the source, to the mouth and everything shallow and deep, year 4 will explore the significance that rivers have had on growing civilisations, habitats and landscapes. Children will build on their map skills to identify world locations as well as local locations of rivers and research, through field studies, topical questions they have on rivers nearby to the school.

Join us in our wet adventure as we dive in, splish, splash and sploshing head first into life beside the river bank. What is your favourite river memory?
