Year 3/4 Class
Welcome to the Silver Birch Class Page!
Our class teacher is Miss Madge.
Mrs Adamson works in our class sometimes too and supports us with our learning.
An expert at anything was once a beginner.
In our class we follow a clearly sequenced curriculum that builds on children's learning. We explore learning across all areas of the curriculum and enjoy trips to visit places or have visitors in, which gives us the opportunity to deepen and broaden our understanding through first-hand experience. A highlight of our year is when Farm Link visits us and drops off an incubator. Caring for and learning about chicks’ development is a lot of fun. When possible, we like to work with other schools; for example, we attend Raise the Roof which is a local singing festival.
We’re encouraged to challenge ourselves through self-selecting activities and aiming high. We aim for a growth mindset. We discuss and recognise learning dispositions needed to be successful. ‘Marvellous mistakes’ help us to learn and we’re taught that through effort we can achieve even if we’re ‘not there yet’.
We always start the day (weather allowing) with the Daily Mile which is fifteen minutes of exercise. Not only is it a chance to get physically fitter, but it’s an enjoyable time when we can run with friends.
Once a year, we have the opportunity to complete a marathon by completing a mile a day over a term!
Working as team, we support and help each other. Team challenges and group work give our class the opportunity to develop co-operation and social skills. Working together, we take on classroom responsibilities like being the register and recycling monitors. Our classroom runs smoothly because we all help out.
