Birch 2021 - 2022

Miss Mortimer

Welcome to Birch Class and welcome to the first half term of the year - Autumn 1!

 We have got lots of exciting learning planned for our Year 5 topics this half term including our Science topic on the testing of material properties and our History topic on WW1. In English we will be completing a unit on Myths and Legends where we will study a range of texts. Our Maths work will begin with place value and move on to addition and subtraction. We are lucky that our PE lessons will be with the PNE sports coaches and we will be studying dance. 

Our PE lessons will be on a Wednesday. Please ensure your children come to school dressed in their PE kits - they can then wear these for the whole school day. 

Please remember to practise your weekly spellings and try to read your books for at least 5 minutes every day! Please also practice your times tables regularly using TT Rockstars to help you - you will soon start to see your times improve. You will also have a home learning grid where the expectation is that you will complete one activity each week. There will be Dojo points available for children who are working on their learning at home.

If you have any concerns or questions, or need to contact us for any reason, you can call the office on 01772 729337, message us through Class Dojo or email us at

Due to COVID 19 regulations face to face appointments will be available only in certain circumstances and only by appointment.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Miss Mortimer and Mrs Kay
