The children in Silver Birch class have a great curiosity and a readiness to learn. They are always kind, they always persevere and they always follow our school behaviour code.

Please see our Meet the Teachers powerpoint linked below to find more information on rules, behaviour system, routines and timetables. 


If your child has a tutor, please share the curriculum details below. We advise all tutors carry out their own assessments to ensure a tailored learning plan to meet the direct needs of your child; we are sure the tutors will be very familiar with the National Curriculum and White Rose Maths that we follow here at Tattenhall. 

Our Curriculum

Please see our curriculum topic web link to view our texts, units and wider curriculum learning this term. 

Your child's teacher will alternate each term between Mrs Mason, Mrs Barlow and Mrs Barton for Maths and English. Within our wider curriculum, we teach across all Year 5 and the children are mixed each lesson. 

Homework and Spellings

Homework will be given every Friday. The purpose of homework is to embed any learning from the week before whilst training the children to have a disciplined attitude towards home learning in preperation for high school. We will be setting a paper SPaG, Maths and Spellings each week. We do not wish homework to be a worry for anybody in the class so please let us know if there have been any issues or homework could not be completed for a certain reason; we can provide extra support if there is a lack of understanding also. We will use Mathletics for online maths homework as an extension if you wish and SPaG homework will be given in the children's homework book.

We will be using the online platform Spelling Shed to set and practise our spellings; these will be set each Friday and tested the following Friday. The spellings set consist of spelling pattern rules for the Year 5 curriculum but may recap on spellings from Year 2-4. 

Children should also be reading frequently at home. In year 5 and 6 the children are encouraged to note down any effective vocabulary used in the book that they are reading so that it can be used in their writing.

PE Kit

PE kit must be in school every day of the week.  Please ensure your child has an all weather PE kit including a thin waterproof or jumper and tracksuit bottoms. Please ensure they have trainers which fit them in order for them to participate in lessons the best they can. 

Year 5/6 will be able to participate in Sports Events this year at Bishop Heber. We will complete trials over a sequence of PE lessons before sending letters home. 


Please know you can always contact us with any questions or concerns. You can email us or call the school office to speak to us or arrange an appointment to meet with yourselves. 

Thank you for all of your support, always.
