We've had a busy, BUSY couple of weeks in Birch Class.
First and foremost, the Year 5s were amazing at organising their own "Secret Sunshine Project", inspired by a novel of the same name for our picnic in the park up on Rainbow Day. They came up with, organised and ran games for different year groups and did such an amazing job. They should take great pride in what they did to make sure everyone was included.
This week, we had an athletics session with OCRA. The kids really challenged themselves to improve their skills and did a really awesome job. Same goes for our woodland schools session this afternoon. They learned how to make squirrel traps and worked really well as a team to put them together and also learned some fun deer facts during the natural mystery activity.
Most of our time is being taken up by Fantastic Mr Fox rehearsals. Their perseverance is really being put to the test as we fast approach show day with long rehearsals 2-3 times a week. It has been great to see them working so hard to put an amazing show together with the rest of the school. Just a reminder that costumes should already be in but any that haven't, need to be in BY MONDAY 3RD JULY as we will have our dress rehearsal on Tuesday and the costumes need to be checked before.
In maths, Birch Class have finished a topic on decimals and have now moved on to negative numbers, a topic that everyone has shown a knack for and have already tested well at the beginning of topic assessment. We have high hopes when they finish the topic next week. In English, we have continued working on our contraption descriptions and the writing is now underway, having learned all our skills.
The spellings this week focus on 'ere' spelling words and six of our statutory words. Please find them below and make sure you practice for Monday's test!
