Birch 2020 - 2021

Miss Mortimer

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

We are all used to being back in school together and are a great team in brilliant Birch J

 We have got lots of exciting learning planned for our Year 5 topics this half term and we hope you will enjoy them as much as we will.

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.

 P.E. lessons will take place on a Wednesday morning, but please ensure children have a P.E. kit in a named bag in school at all times.

Spellings will be sent home on Fridays and will be tested on the Thursday of the following week. Please help your child to learn their spellings – if they find it difficult to learn all of them please encourage them to learn as many as they can. We will be sending home a spellings strategies sheet shortly and this will include different ways to help you practice.

We also expect an item off the topic homework grid to be completed each week. Please don’t send paper copies or models of work into school. Please upload the work to your child’s portfolio on Class Dojo.

We will be sending home reading books, so please encourage your child to read for 10/15 minutes per night - please sign and return their reading record so we can keep track of what they have read. There are Class Dojo points on offer every time children read at home. Once books are returned to school we will quarantine them for 72 hours in line with COVID 19 regulations before they are put back on the shelf for other children to read. Please also practice your times tables regularly.

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle from home which they can keep in class. They will then bring these home once a week to be cleaned. Toast is not available at the moment, but you can bring a snack of fruit or a cereal bar to have at break time.

Many thanks for your continued support.
