Welcome to Birch & Chestnut.

Well done to year 4 this term for their continued determination in regards to Busters Book Club. The children have developed a keen enthusiasm for reading which is evident by the amount of times y4 have recently won the trophy. Lets keep it going everyone!

Year 4 Star of the Week goes to Morgan from Birch class, for her continued dedication to learning.

Reading Plus is carried out by children every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and also set for homework throughout the week. Though many are participating regularly at home, there is still a need for many to do this. I cannot emphasise the importance in which this will have on children’s overall reading, especially towards areas such as comprehension, so if we could all make a concerted effort to ensure this is done, it will undoubtedly pay dividends in the end.


Class Dojo is a method we use to communicate to parents about issues affecting Year 4.  This can be accessed via a mobile phone or internet enabled device.

Times Table Rock Stars is becoming increasingly popular and is clearly benefiting all  participants. Lets not leave it at this though, an extra effort, will clearly be beneficial to all.

Well done to everyone who took part in TTRS Battle of the Bands. It was between different houses this week and was a closely run battle.
