Dosbarth Silver Birch


Welcome to Silver Birch.

We are going to do so many fun things and of course learn a lot. 

This term our topic is Incredible India, we will be looking at the where India is in the world, finding out about their culture and exploring patterns.  In literacy we will be looking at Stories from other cultures, diaries, letters and poetry.  Our science topics this term are Electricity and Materials.   


As a school we are looking at mathematical reasoning, this is an area that a lot of children find challenging.  Please support your child with this be encouraging them to learn number bonds, times tables, telling the time and practice mental maths activities.  


PE is on a Tuesday and Friday.



Homework Information for Parents

In Year 4/5, the children will be given a homework project to complete throughout the term.  This will cover Literacy, Numeracy, Welsh along with creative skills.  Please could any models or pieces of art work please be returned to school the first week after half term. 


For Reading we expect the children to do a minimum of 10 minutes reading three times a week.

If you would like to carry out extra activities here are some options you may wish to choose:

- discussing key characters and settings

- making a list of unfamiliar words and their meanings

- discussing the book with your child and the events that occur


Spellings are given every Thursday which must be learnt and practiced using sentences DAILY as we carry out a Spellcheck the following Thursday.


Please ensure that your child is completing homework.


We appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home and look forward to working alongside you throughout the year.
