Autumn 1
 We all belong here!
To celebrate European day of languages we played French games, ate French food and learnt about the French culture. We discussed how we could get the France from Birchwood school and even got a French lesson from our bilingual classmate. It was a wonderful day.
We all belong here! 
Our first theme is all about celebrating each other, our similarities and differences. We have spent the first few weeks looking at the routines of school and how to do our Birchwood best.  Last week we investigated how to be a good friend, what ingredients make the best friends and which ingredients we try to avoid.  The children have engaged in some amazing learning and formed wonderful relationships with their teachers and each other.
