On Thursday 14th December we celebrates our first Winter Sports Day.
Every child took part in eight separate activities as part of a small group. It was fast and furious with high old time being had by all!
Each house amassed over 3,000 points each, with all house's scores ending within 100 or each other - a very tight finish over 3,000 points!
Well done to Sapphire, who eventually claimed victory on the day!
Birchwood sent a team to compete against schools from across Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield. Turbo cricket is a fast, action-packed sport where three pairs of batters work together to score as many runs as they can, with the highest combined total winning the game.
There were some impressive displays of skill both batting and in the field. Well done all!
On Monday 20th November we hosted a SPAG (Spelling and Grammar) Workshop after school. Parents and children from all year groups came in and had a taster of some the activities that children undertake to understand all facets of spelling and grammar that children are required to learn by the end of Year 6.
Parents said it was 'really useful' and all who came enjoyed the session.
A big thank you to all of you who took the time to come!
