Welcome to Silver Birch!
Silver Birch is taught by Mrs Blake (Mon - Wed am) and Mrs Millward (Wed pm to Friday) with the support of Miss Davies (every morning).
PPA will take place on Wednesday afternoon and will be covered by Mrs Dunford (our music specialist) for one hour. Mrs Ptaszek and Mrs McCullough will cover the class for the other hour.
Homework & Online Learning Resources
In the event of school closure, all children will be sent home with a homework booklet which has been specifically organised by their class teacher. In the first instance a paper copy of a TTS home work learning booklet will be sent home - as we hope you will want to complete some of the challenges while school is closed.
You will also find a number of other downloadable documents and websites below, which will enable learning to continue if school is closed. The 'Home Learning Activities' document provides a range of topic related activities, which you may like your child to complete at home. In addition there is a poster with 'non screen' activities that can also be completed.
In the event of a longer term closure we will update the Home Learning Activities section of this page on a weekly basis.

On Friday 11th October, we had a great trip to the Corinium Museum in Cirencester. We learnt a lot about the Romans and how they lived. Ask us about the mosaics, the type of food they ate and what Roman games we played.
