In Birch Class every day is a fun day full of lots of learning opportunities. Some times we have so much fun we forget we are learning.

If you want to see some of this amazing work for yourself click on the links below.


Remember we are very much an open door classroom and if you have any questions, concerns or just want a chat about your child/ren the class teacher and teaching assistant, Miss Daniels and Mrs Sutcliffe are always happy to help. If we think it more appropriate to arrange a date to meet and have a longer chat we will do that for you too.

Dates for your Diary


Birch class parents are invited to our nativity on the morning of the 20th of December starting at 9.30am.

We hope you can make it - alternatively the nativity will be running at 9.30 am on the 19th of December for Ash class parents as well if you are unable to make the 20th.


We will also be having another Stay and Play session on the 12th of December. Times will be listed on the door closer to the day. We hope to see you there!

Thanks so much to the parents who attended stay and play recently, the children are always incredibly proud to show what they have been working on and our latest adventure and there will of course be many more opportunities for anybody who couldn't make it.


In reception the children will have daily phonics lessons which will teach them the skills needed to read as well as lots of stories read to them each week.

The children will read 1 to 1 with an adult every Friday and take a book home with them to look through with an adult at home. 

Books must be brought back to school on a Thursday so we can change them and give a new book on Friday. 

Could we kindly ask all parents/carers to sign the readying record to say your child has read at home and we can award them with their book worm certificate.


Birch class have PE every Tuesday morning. Please bring PE kits at the beginning of each half term and leave them at school until the end of half term. If for any reason a member of staff feels the PE kit needs to go home we will send it home with your child on that particular day.


Star of the day.

At the end of each day 1 child in the class will be awarded star of the day. This means they have been an exceptional ‘Westwooder’. They will be able to sit on the star bean bag at carpet times the next day!


Star of the week

This is awarded on Friday to a child who has shown exceptional behaviour and learning all week. They will be awarded with a Star of the Week certificate and a Star of the Week sticker from our Headteacher, Miss Dibnah!
