Birch 2023 - 2024

Miss Mortimer

Welcome to Birch Class!

 We have got lots of exciting learning planned for our Year 5 topics this half term including our science topic on Forces and our geography topic on mountains. In English we will be studying a variety of Legends including the Legend of Gelert and Beowulf, and writing a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts based on our reading. Our Maths work will include calculating with decimal fractions and factors, multiples and primes. We will continue to answer problem solving questions and further our understanding of calculations.

Our PE for this half term will be swimming. Children should bring their swimming kits with them every Tuesday.

Please remember to practise your weekly spellings and try to read your books for at least 5 minutes every day! Please also continue to practice your times tables regularly using TT Rockstars to help you. You 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

Many thanks for your support.

Miss Mortimer and Mrs Hughes
