Welcome to Silver Birch Class

We’re a class of Year 2 pupils.


We are taught by Mrs Boyd, Mrs Box and Mrs Elliott.

It’s Silver Birch we love to learn, learn, learn. We have a genuine thirst for developing our knowledge, skills and learning behaviours.

Phonics is still really important in Silver  Birch; we are trying to develop our reading skills and we are also beginning to choose our own books.


Learning our number bonds and times tables is really important in maths. We love exploring too.

Reading Support

In Silver Birch, reading is still very much the key to unlock all other mediums of learning. We, therefore, continue to follow the Letters & Sounds programme.


Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.

There are six overlapping phases. The table below is a summary based on the Letters and Sounds guidance for Practitioners and Teachers. For more detailed information, visit the Letters and Sounds website.
