Welcome to Silver Birch's class page.
We are a Year 5 class with 25 pupils in total.
Mr Jones is our class teacher and Miss McCarthy is our class Teaching Assistant.
Please have a look at the exciting things we have been learning about this year.
This week we have been taking part in drama activities thinking about how we move. We took part in several activities focused on our bodies and how we can move like certain animals. This is in preparation to get us ready for our upcoming production, which we will be performing in the Drum Theatre in July 2015.
Slapton Residential 2015
Children from Rowan and Silver Birch recently visited Slapton Sands which involved a leisurely walk down to the beautiful local beach. The children completed various outdoor activities including creating the sea in a bottle, roasting marshmallows and much much more!
This term our topic is Stargazer, during this topic we will be focusing on Frank Cottrell Boyce's book Cosmic. This book is about a boy who manages to get himself lost in space. We will be immercing ourselves in all aspects of space including about learning about planets, star constellations and phases of the moon.

This term we have been learning how to cycle safely on the road. We had some instructors come in and teach us the rules of the road and how to cycle safely. Take a look at the photos below.
Mr and Mrs Reburn (Mrs Evan's parents) came to visit both Year 5 classes. Whilst they were here we asked some questions that linked to the work we have been doing through our topic of 'Time Traveler'. They were able to inform us of how things have changed throughout their lives which allowed us to compare to how it is today. We would like to thank them for taking to time to come in and speak to us.
