Miss Ingham, Mrs Jones and Miss McKenna welcome you to Silver Birch Class!
A brief introduction...
This is Miss Ingham's sixth year teaching in Silver Birch Class and at Stanton. She absolutely loves history, English and phonics. Mrs Jones is also supporting in Silver Birch Class this year and she loves helping children with their reading and writing. Miss McKenna loves being creative in the classroom and helping the children with their art.
The children will get their first P.E lesson on a Monday afternoon and their second P.E lesson on a Thursday 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 an online E-Book which they would have read three times the previous week with an adult. Please contact Miss Ingham if you are having difficulties logging on. Each of the in school reading sessions focusses on a different aspect of reading; decoding, prosody and comprehension. We then urge you to read this book daily throughout the week to build your child's reading fluency and confidence.
We visit the library as a whole class every Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child's library book is in school every Friday 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. The Knowledge Organisers for Autumn Term have been uploaded onto Class Dojo in the portfolio section. 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!

In Year 2 the children are expected to continue their learning at home. This includes practising spellings and a weekly maths activity which focusses on basic number work. We also expect the children to read with an adult at home three times a week using the online E-Book system.
