Several Websites that we use in Class:
We like to do things a little differently in Silver Birch. We like to have fun when we learn, so we use a couple of websites to help with our work...
Our latest favorite website. Each child in the class has a login to access their "Rockstar". They can practise their timestables skills against each other. The better they become the better their rockstar!
Big Maths Online:
Children aren't limited to just doing their Clic, Safe and Learn It's only in term time. Each child has their own login so they can practise at home.
Saving the best till last. Our reward system we use in class. Our learning is an adventure and each child has their own champion who can gain in levels through doing the right thing in an out of class. Extra learning is in the form of quests which your child can do at home and bring in the next day for me to mark, which results in XP. However if the rules aren't followed each character's health suffers. Even us teachers have our own characters so we don't miss out on the fun!
We have two P.E. slots this year; Monday and Wednesday. Your child should try to remember to bring in their P.E. kit at the beginning of the week. Short, Shirt and trainers are required for all P.E sessions and, weather dependent, a hoody to keep them warm in the upcoming Autumn and Winter seasons.
Welcome to Silver Birch 2018 - 2019! I am very excited to be teaching your children this year and I hope that this year can be your child's best yet. All the children have made an excellent first impression this week and have shown themselves to be a very caring, considerate and polite group of children. It promises to be a great year!
