Welcome to Silver Birch

 Class Overview


Welcome to Silver Birch’s class web page.

Hi everyone and a huge welcome to our class page. I am Mrs Lister, Silver Birch's class teacher, we are lucky to have Mrs Aitkin help us during the week. Mrs Graveston comes to teach you on a Thursday and Friday whilst Mrs Lister continues her work for Tameside LA and takes her non-contact time.


Things are a little different this year due to the COVID 19 restrictions. Children will need a sport topped water bottle filled with water daily. Children only need to bring a bag on Monday - when reading books will be changed and Fridays when homework will be issued and returned. Children can bring a small fully disposable snack (no boxes please) this can be kept in their coat pocket until break time. On PE days children can come to school in their PE kits with warmer joggers and jumper over the top to keep warm. Please ensure they have a coat everyday – we will be going out to play in all weathers to allow time for the classrooms to be cleaned during the day.

Please ensure you read every day and log in the reading record. Reading is the most important skill the children need to master to open the rest of the curriculum.

Don't forget to follow our class twitter page to see what we have been learning and also any class specific information. @SilverBirchBV
