Year 3 Ash and Silver Birch
Hello! We are Ash class. We are a polite, friendly class who work hard to achieve our goals. Being the first year of Key Stage 2, we are becoming confident, independent members of Dashwood Banbury Academy.
We have already achieved so much this year through interesting and inspiring topics, including learning about our town. We like our lessons to be fun and exciting; this gives us all a thirst for learning! We complete work to the very best of our ability and take great pride in every piece of work.
This year we were given an exciting opportunity to learn the recorder. We have all been given our very own, so that we can practice at home, and have a weekly lesson. We can already name a range of notes and even play ‘Hot Cross Buns’!
We are encouraged to be brave and adventurous. We believe in ourselves and each other, creating things that we never knew that we could! We hope that you enjoy looking at all of the things that we have been doing together.
Welcome to Silver Birch class. We have enjoyed the start of term where we have got to know our new teacher, our new classroom and have welcomed the new people who have joined the school recently.
Silver Birch is a friendly group of children who are enjoying the challenges and opportunities they are given at Dashwood Banbury Academy. They continue to enjoy their weekly recorder session and love the practical nature of lots of their learning. For example, learning about plants by growing their own, drawing plants they have collected themselves and finding out about nature through visits to Horley. In the classroom, the children face challenges every day which really makes them think carefully about their learning and the relevance it has to their everyday lives.
We are really looking forward to the coming school terms where we can further develop the school’s aspirations ethos within the classroom, through the eight Conditions for Learning!
