BIRCH 2020 - Spring!


Hello Birch parents and guardians, 

Firstly, Happy New Year!!! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas spending precious time together. We had an incredibly busy end to the autumn term and I’m sure you enjoyed the Year 5 performances of Snow White.

Now it’s back to reality and all things spring term. Children in Birch have a student teacher completing his teaching practice this term, which they are all very excited about. 

This term, we are continuing our study of Brazil and have a Brazilian dance workshop to keep us on our toes. The children will also be celebrating Chinese New Year with some dancing. In science, we are learning all about Charles Darwin within our evolution and inheritance topic before moving on to forces. In mathematics, we are continuing our Singapore approach where the children use concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to support their understanding. Within literacy, we are re-telling the legend of Robin Hood as well as some focus work on Shakespeare’s Macbeth. In DT, children will be looking at the seasonality of food and planning a meal to maybe cook you over half term! Look out on Twitter for photographic updates of these and give us a like.

A quick reminder that Year 5 Homework club is on a Monday afternoon and the work is due in on a Friday. Homework diaries must also be signed each week with a minimum of three reads. Children are still offered a Dojo per reading recorded (when they have read three times) with an adult’s signature but I am happy for the children to take ownership of the other boxes. 

I look forward to seeing you all again at coffee mornings and our second parent’s evening.

Best wishes,

Miss Sheenan.
