Birch - Year 1/2 - Mrs Bishop & Mrs Beazley

Welcome to Birch!

Useful Information smiley


 A very warm welcome to class Birch...



Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays: Mrs Bishop. 

Thursdays and Fridays: Mrs Beazley

Our wonderful teaching assistants are Mrs Hodgkiss and Mrs Doyle.



The children will finish school at 3.15pm. Staff will bring the children out to the playground at the end of the day and wait with the children until they can see the grown-up who is collecting them. Please would you advise us in the morning, or by phoning the school office if a different adult will be collecting your child. We will be familiarising ourselves with all the parents and carers so please feel free to come and introduce yourselves as this will help with the pickup at the end of the day.



All children need to bring their reading books and reading diary to school everyday. The children have a new reading diary to record their reading books in this year. Please record in the reading dairy every time you read with your child.



READING- Reading at home should take place daily where possible. However, we are aware this is not always practical or feasible so if they can read at least 4 times a week then that would be fantastic. Children are encouraged to change their books independently Please make sure your child’s reading book and reading diary are in school every day.

LEARNING LOG – This is homework that is set over a two-week period. It may be Maths, English, Phonics or Topic work based.



Please ensure PE kits are in school every day. Please label school jumpers with your child's name now Autumn is in the air...


Please do not hesitate to contact us anytime should you have any further questions or worries, or if your child is experiencing any problems with work wither at school or at home. Our door is always open…


Here's to a great year of exciting learning...


Mrs Bishop, Mrs Beazley, Mrs Doyle and Mrs Hodgkiss

The Great Fire of London

On September 2nd, 1666, a tiny spark in a bakery oven ignited the worst fire that London has ever seen. The Great Fire of London burned for four days, and the City had to be rebuilt from its ashes.

The Bear and the Piano by David Litchfield.

A little taster into this term's fantastic English story.

One day, a bear cub finds something strange and wonderful in the forest. When he touches the keys, they make a horrible noise. Yet he is drawn back again and again. Eventually, he learns to play beautiful sounds, delighting his woodland friends. Then the bear is invited to share his sounds with new friends in the city.
