Birch Class

Welcome to Birch Class

Birch Class will work with Hawthorn Class and Chestnut Class as part of the Lower Juniors. 
Teachers will plan together to provide a cohesive and exciting curriculum for Years 3 and 4.

Our topics for the year are:

Autumn 1 – What The Romans Did For Us
Autumn 2 – The Iron Man
Spring 1 – Rock and Roll
Spring 2 – Healthy Humans
Summer 1 – There’s No Place Like Home
Summer 2 – How Does Your Garden Grow?



This half term, we will be learning about the Romans and their invasion of Britain in 43AD. We will find out about the impact of this invasion and how Britain was changed by the Romans, e.g. that Roman roads were built.
Ribchester (once known as Bremetennacum) is steeped in history from this time. We aim to visit the Roman Museum which houses the ancient granaries and the remains of the Roman bathhouse.
We will be writing non-fiction reports about what we find out about the impact of the Roman invasion and creating our own Roman mosaics in our Art lessons.
In Science we will be looking at Light and Shadows and the theme of our RE lessons is the Old Testament, Called by God.

Our Mission

We believe that every child is special and has their own talents

At Clitheroe St. James' C.E. Primary School, Christianity flows through everything we do but we also value other faiths.

All the children will be helped to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour. They will be encouraged to always try to do their best and be proud of their work.

Clitheroe St. James' C.E. Primary School is an important and valuable part of the Church family and the wider community.
