Birch Class

Holt Hall June 2018

Welcome to Birch Class - Year 6!


I am Mr Fowkes and I am very proud to be teaching Birch class this year. The class is supported by Mrs Aldridge, Mr Purser and Mrs Durrant. Miss Mitchell also teaches Birch class on Monday and Friday mornings.


All children are encouraged to be independent and responsible for their belongings and their work. We all take a responsibility for looking after our school by helping to keep it tidy and maintaining an excellent environment in which to learn.


Birch children are required to have their games/PE kit in school on Thursdays and Fridays when they are timetabled for these activities.



Your child will be expected to complete certain homework tasks each week. These include: reading at least five times in a week, spellings and times tables work. Please encourage your child to complete these tasks each week, as they really help support literacy and numeracy skills that are being taught in the classroom.


Certain homework tasks are optional and will be set towards the beginning of each half-term.  Your child will be able to choose from a list of different activities. We love to celebrate the work of the children in completing this extra homework by awarding two house points for each piece that is completed. This goes towards a special certificate that is presented at a Celebration Assembly at the end of each half-term.


Homework books are due in on a Tuesday and will be marked and then handed back on Thursday.


We are always proud of the work that the children produce in class in all areas of the curriculum. Please come to see it for yourself when we have open mornings at school. We would love to see you.
