Birch Class

 Welcome to Birch Class! 

Ms Sedgwick and Mr Smith are our Teachers.

This year Mr Smith is training to be a teacher and will be teachingas well.


We have all settled in fantastically into life in Year 1! We’ve all worked so hard during our first few weeks and done lots of learning. 

If if you have any questions or queries, please don’t hesitate to email me - r.smith@heathcote.staffs.sch.uk


We've been on an Autumn walk, collecting things to go into our Autumn pod in the classrom. We found lots of different sizes, shapes and colours of leaves and sticks, berries and a few feathers. We linked this to our science work about everyday materials and thought about the properties of the things we had collected using key science words such as hard, soft, bendy, rough, smooth and lots more! 



PE takes place on Tuesday afternoons so please ensure PE kits are in school. PE is subject to change so it is recommended that kits are kept in school. 

Please check your child’s bag regularly for letters. Homework is given on a Friday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. Please try to read at home as often as you can, and we will do the same in school. 

Our current topic is ‘Toys’ and we are learning about new and old toys, linking this to our computing work as well. In science we we are learning about everyday materials.
