COP 26 – Monday 1st November
In 2019 Greta Thunberg met the Pope. Through our learning about COP26, Birch have been reflecting on what impact this meeting may have had on climate change
A visit from an Anglo Saxon – Friday 10th September 2021
To kick off our English and Topic work, we had a visit from an Anglo Saxon!
We heard stories about life during that time and got to explore different artifacts includng weapons. Then we split into groups to try a strategy board game, writing in the Anglo Saxon alphabet and using a shield.
Our visitor was very impressed with our children and the questions they asked during the day.
“It was lovely to visit such a great school with fabulous staff and wonderful children who engaged so well with the activities. They were a credit to you.”
History into schools staff
