Hello again Birch class.
Here's hoping you have been enjoying the lovely sunshine (safely in your gardens) and that you have had a super Easter weekend. Remember to continue your reading - have you tried Audible books (audible.co.uk) which are offering FREE audio books during the lockdown? Also keep testing yourself on your mental arithmetic. How many of you can still find equivalent fractions or change decimals into percentages? Practise some measuring skills and do some cooking, or challenge yourself to do a 10 minute art sketch everyday. The BBC Bitesize website is also offering LIVE learning from next Monday 20th. Are you still doing the daily Joe Wickes workouts? I am, so will be fighting fit when next we meet!
Stay safe and well everybody and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Welcome to Birch Class!
We're very excited about the year ahead... we hope that you find our class webpage a useful source of information. If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to speak to us before or after school in the playground. At the bottom of this page you will find some useful documents that will provide you with some detail on the Year 5 and Year 6 curriculum, including our new enquiry-led 'Curious City' curriculum in partnership with Lighting Up Learning.
During Term 1, please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on Thursday and Friday.
ActiveLearn is a key resource that all children are encouraged to use at home to support their learning. Children should continue to use their ActiveLearn username from their previous class. All children have the same password: school, and will need to use the school code to log in: 97cc. The website can be found by clicking here.
Homework will continue to be set on a Friday, and is due to be handed in on the following Wednesday.
It is essential that your child reads every night at home, for a minimum of 20 minutes, preferably with an adult although independent reading is equally beneficial.
