Teaching Assistant - Mrs Gray, Miss Morrissey, Hayley.
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 Children In World War Two and we will be looking in detail at two texts: Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo, and Rose Blanche by Roberto Innocenti and Ian McEwan. Please click on the Topic Web link for more details on various subjects that we are covering.
PE will be on a Monday (Swimming), a Wednesday (Football) and a Friday (Netball). Please ensure children bring their PE kit and swimming kit in on Monday morning and take it home on Fridays to wash, then bring back in the following Monday. For swimming, long hair must be tied back please. For football, children need a white t-shirt and black or navy blue shorts plus trainers. No jewellery please!
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.
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, as often as possible.
If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
