Parents of year 6

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for my presents. I absolutely love them and I will be wearing the Dusseldorf shirt with pride. It might even inspire me to go over and watch a game there as I have wanted to for a while. I might wait a while though!!

I am aware you couldn't see the video very well so I will make sure I put the celebrity messages on here for you tomorrow. 

 

Thanks again

 

Mr Palmer

Hi everybody, 

 

It's the last day and I just wanted to say a massive well done to everybody for this year. It has been very difficult for you all. In school, the year 6's have coped amazingly with the new rules and had a great few weeks. Out of school, those home learning have continued to amaze me with both the amount of work they are doing and the high standard. It has been lovely to keep in touch.

 

Good luck to the year 6's as they go on to High School, I'm sure they will be brilliant and I look forward to hearing about their progress. I will also look forward to seeing the year 5's back in Birch Class in September. I will add photos over the holidays of how the classroom is looking. 

 

Please keep in touch through the class email, I really enjoy hearing from you. 

 

Mr Palmer

Maths: WB 13th July

It seems that Oak Academy have not put up any maths work for this week. If this continues to be the case, you have two options. 

 

1) BBC Bitesize: Go to www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-and-p6-lessons. This week the daily lessons are focusing on measurement. You can also go back to previous weeks lessons if there is any area you feel that you need to work on. 

 

2) Hamilton Trust: www.hamilton-trust.org.uk/blog/learning-home-packs/. This week (17) has lots of maths puzzles and investigations. However there are lots of other weeks to choose from with a variety of topics if you feel you need to work on something in particular. 

 

Please email me if you have any problems or would like any suggestions.

Hi everybody,

 

Firstly, thank you for all of your work on the growing topic. I particularly enjoyed reading all of the Jack and the beanstalk stories and there were also some great reports on different plants. It is so pleasing to see that you are all still working hard and enjoying the topics. 

The next topic is Sport and I have tried to provide another wide range of activities for you. It would be great if you took part in the virtual school games and I will be able to see how you are getting on through the tracker. Also, as usual I would love to see your work and will keep adding it to the website. As well as that, if you need any help or would like any extra work please contact me. Thank you again.

Hi everybody, 

 

Thank you for sending in your work from the new growth topic. I have really enjoyed the new versions of Jack and the beanstalk, they are very creative. Year 6 have also been working on these and I will post them on the site next week. I would love to see some more from year 5 too. I hope you have a great weekend.

Hi everybody. 

 

Please see below the home learning for the next two weeks. The new theme is 'Growth' which covers a range of different things.

6th June 2020

 

Hi everybody,

 

Well done to the year 6's who have come back to school this week. Although there are new social distancing rules, they have adapted really well and we have had an enjoyable week. They have worked hard in Maths and Literacy as well as doing some leavers work and playing some new games. The corners game and around the world tennis being the favourites. 

I have also enjoyed seeing all of the work the year 5's have been doing at home. It seems the standard is getting better and better and I have added the highlights to the class page. Please keep your work coming in, I really enjoy reading it.

A message from Mrs Cottee

 

Hello Birch Class! Mrs Cottee, here. You thought that staying at home meant that you could escape me, but sadly no! However, I’m only dropping in to say hello and to wish you all well in these extraordinary times. I miss my visits to your school on Thursday mornings, and I look forward to a time in the future when I can come by again, and wrestle with English comprehensions with you, and listen to all that lovely reading. I do enjoy hearing all you readers, and hope to hear from more of you, too. Please take care of yourselves, and as Dame Vera Lynn used to sing, “We’ll meet again”. (OK – go and google Dame Vera Lynn!) warm wishes, Mrs Cottee

MG made a planting box by himself over the holidays
