Birch Class - Y2
Welcome to Birch Class!
In Birch Class, we learn and make memories together.
I hope that you are keeping happy and safe, and making the best of this tricky time. I'm sure lots of you are keeping busy, enjoying the sunshine and planning all the lovely things you'd like to do, when the time comes.
*** Please make sure that you have e-mailed the office for your Purple Mash username and pass code, if you haven't already. Keep an eye out for tasks that I have set in the '2Dos' tab. I will be able to see what you have been up to and send you feedback too.
PURPLE MASH NEWS!
** I'm sure that you must be missing your class friends, so from lunch time on Monday 18th May, I will be setting up the 2email app on Purple Mash. This will mean that you can contact your Birch Class friends via email! Please be aware that the emails come to me for approval before they go to your friends, so have fun emailing your friends, but keep them smart. Happy emailing! **

More Information about Learning from Home
There are many things children can do at home to support their learning. Reading as much as possible remains the most important activity. There is a link below to Oxford Owl who have 100s of free ebooks, all KS1 children also have log in details to Numbots which they could access regularly too.
Below are many activities you could complete at home, but please don't feel like everything has to be completed, we recommend one maths based and one literacy based activity per day. You will also find 100 things to do indoors.
Our sport coaches from Next Level Sports have informed us that they will be adding daily fitness based fun activities on to their Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts: NEXTLEVELSPORTX
