Miss Ingham, Mrs Warrington, Mrs Horrex and Mrs Bovingdon welcome you to Silver Birch!

A brief introduction...


This is Miss Ingham's fourth year teaching in Silver Birch Class and at Stanton. She absolutely loves history, English and phonics. This is Mrs Horrex's third year in Silver Birch Class with Miss Ingham. She is passionate about maths and being creative in our forest. We also have Mrs Warrington supporting in Silver Birch Class this year. Mrs Warrington enjoys supporting children in maths and phonics. Mrs Bovingdon is also supporting in Silver Birch this year and she loves geography and music.  


We will start our week in with a P.E lesson on a Monday morning. The children will then get their second P.E lesson on a Friday afternoon. We suggest that all P.E kits are left in school and taken home every half term for a wash. Please make sure your child has suitable outdoor clothing including a jumper and bottoms.

You can find a full uniform checklist here.


In Silver Birch Class we recognise the importance of reading with the children. This will not only support their phonics but their writing and other subjects too. The children are all assigned a weekly reading slot where they will spend quality time with a teacher reading and discussing their book. The children will then get their book changed during this slot. We then urge you to read this book daily throughout the week to build your child's reading fluency and confidence. Please speak to Miss Ingham if you are unsure of your child's weekly reading slot. Please make sure that your child brings their reading book into school everyday in case of any sudden changes. 


We visit the library as a whole class every Monday afternoon. Please make sure your child's library book is in school every Monday so they can change it, if they wish to do so. 


Learning in Silver Birch Class


In Silver Birch Class we love learning and have lots of exciting topics to focus on throughout the year. We will be sending home Knowledge Organisers frequently which are associated with our learning. The aim of these Knowledge organisers are to support children with retrieving knowledge taught.  If you would like anymore information please follow the link below!

Home Learning

In Year 2 the children are expected to continue their learning at home. This includes a short daily phonics activity when a new sound is learnt in school,  weekly spellings and weekly maths. We also expect the children to read with an adult at home daily. Please click on the link below for the cover letter from the inside of the Home Learning books.
