Welcome to our Birch Class page!
This year is a very important year for the Year 6 children in the class as they will be sitting their SATs tests in May. Our Year 5 children will also be developing their Maths and English skills in preparation for this experience! The tests themselves are very challenging, so we will be focusing our learning towards making them as stress-free as possible. Every week will be busy!
Please ensure that your child arrives to school on time as we will be cracking on with the learning as soon as we can each day.
Our topic for term 1 is based around Ancient Greece and we will be looking in detail at one text in particular: The Adventures of Odysseus by Hugh Lupton.
PE will be on a Wednesday (Indoor Games), Thursday (Outdoor Games) and a Friday (Netball). Please ensure children have their PE kit and take it home on Fridays to wash, then bring back in for the following week. Additionally, long hair must be tied back and no jewellery, please!
Homework is set every Friday and is due in on the Wednesday of the following week. Also please try to read with your child, at home, the recommended number of occasions being 4 times a week but daily would be great!
We aim to update this web page on a regular basis to keep you updated with everything that's going on, share our successes and let you know about any upcoming events.
