Birch 2020 - 2021

Miss Mortimer

Welcome to Birch Class and welcome to the second half of the Summer term!

 We have got lots of exciting learning planned for our Year 5 topics this half term including our Science topic on Electricity and our Geography topic on ‘Enough for Everyone’ where we will be investigating where settlements are located and the reasons for this. We will be continuing our work on debate, persusasion and balance arguments in English and we will also continue to link this to our Geography topic.


With the new compulsory Relationships and Sex Education curriculum in place, our PSHE lessons will focus on key aspects of growing up. All classes in Year 5/6 will have a number of lessons related to puberty, growing up and their feelings around this. The lessons are vitally important for all children as it will give them a safe and secure place in which to learn about the changes they will be going through and understand more about themselves. Lessons related to bodily and emotional changes will be delivered as a class with some more specific lessons being delivered to boys and girls separately, in order for the children to feel as comfortable as possible during this time and speak freely. The lessons are compulsory for all children, however, if you would like to contact me beforehand to explain the focus and content of the lessons in more detail, I am happy to do so. Just send me a message on class dojo and we can have this discussion.


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 - the children in school have been doing this and are really pleased with their improvement in their times tables.

We will be having P.E. lessons with the Sports coach on a Wednesday morning so please make sure your P.E. kits are in school for this. 

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.
