Birch Class

Please visit our class page weekly. New content will be released each Monday.

Please feel free to send me an email while you are working from home.


Here are some things you might want to send me:



  • Any creations you have made

  • Pictures of you getting involved in the tasks

  • Pictures of work you are proud of


birch@higham.lancs.sch.uk


I monitor this email address regularly between the hours of 8:30am and 3:30pm.


I am not looking at your work in terms of marking it. I am interested in seeing what you are getting up. 


To access PurpleMash here is the URL you can simply copy and paste into the search bar or click to enter the site 


https://www.purplemash.com/sch/higham-bb12


You have your username and logins in your homelearning packs and a copy is glued inside your exercise book.


Work will be assigned in the 2Dos section on a weekly basis. I will be monitoring this and can see which children are completing the tasks as well as which children are not. 

I understand that some of you may be finding it difficult to plan out your days of home learning so here is a suggested timetable you could follow to help you balance learning and play throughout the day. 


Do not feel obligated to use this plan. Do what works best for your child.

PE

PE is a key subject in school, because of this you must continue to stay active whilst you are at home. 

Below is a document which will suggest some activities you can do, as well as a tracker to use at home. 

Joe Wicks is doing a daily work out at 9:00am on his YouTube channel.

Here is a link to his channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAxW1XT0iEJo0TYlRfn6rYQ

Spelling

For this half term I am providing you with the spelling lessons in one document. All spelling lessons from now till the end of the Summer term can be found on the documents below. 

Kahoot!

In Birch class we regularly use Kahoot to take quizzes in class. 

I will be releasing a list of Kahoots that need completing during each week. They must be completed by the Friday of each week by the end of day.

I will send out a set of instructions for how to use Kahoot in your  home learning packs. 

You can access the quizzes either by the Kahoot code or by copying the URL 

I would suggest using the game code rather than the link as it works more consistently.
