Birch  Year 5 and 6



Welcome to Years 5 and 6 in Birch class.  It’s been lovely to meet our newest additions and I’m sure we are going to have a fantastic year full of interesting activities along with the occasional trip to help with our learning, subject to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Team: 

The class will be taught by Mrs Barker with support from our very dedicated team of Teaching Assistants: Miss Lamb, Mrs King, Miss Finn and Mrs Biscombe.

The Start and End of the Day:

8.30am - 8.40am - Children arrive via the main, front gate.  They MUST wash their hands before entering the classroom and will be directed to appropriate stations.  Please ensure that your child arrives at school on time as the gate will be locked outside of this timescale. 

3.30pm - School lessons finish and children will be dismissed from the building, to leave from the main, front gate where you may collect them.  

After School Clubs:

We hope to still be able to offer some after school activities and details of these will be available in due course.

PE Kits:

PE kits need to be in school every day and consist of a white T shirt, white or black shorts and trainers or plimsolls.  In colder weather, black tracksuit bottoms are also allowed to be worn.  Children may also keep a roll-on deodorant in their PE bag but, please, no aerosols.  Please ensure that all kit and uniform is clearly labelled so we can quickly match lost clothing to its owners!  May we also remind you that children are expected to have school shoes, not trainers or boots, as part of their school uniform.


The children will continue to bring home reading books which they have chosen as part of the Renaissance Reading programme.  We would like to encourage you to listen to your child read and discuss what they have read.  We suggest reading for a minimum of 20 minutes, five times a week.  The children will complete quizzes relating to the books they have read and it is therefore important for them to have a good understanding of the language, style and vocabulary used in the books in order to achieve at least the 70% passmark.  Re-reading books prior to quizzing is therefore encouraged if this will aid understanding. 

Other Information:

We encourage children to stay hydrated at school.  All children have been given a Laira Green water bottle which will remain in school, clearly labelled with your child’s name.  Replacement bottles may be purchased from the school office if required.

Food and Photos:

As part of school life, to celebrate their learning, we like to take photos and videos of the children to use in and around school as well as on our website and occasionally in the media.  The children may also be involved in food tastings during the year, for which we need to know of any allergies or dietary restrictions.  We should be grateful if you would kindly let us know if your child has any dietary restrictions that we are not already aware of or if you want to amend your child’s current media permissions. 

Meet the Teacher:

As part of keeping everyone safe, we are unable to offer a 'Meet the Teacher' evening this year; however, please do feel free to contact the office for an appointment at any time during the academic year if you have anything that you would like to discuss.

Kind regards

Mrs Barker
