Class 9

Hello Everyone,

 

Another busy, jammed-packed half term!

Year 4 and 5 residential was incredible.  I feel privileged to have been part of it.

We continue to enjoy Skellig and the children have done some beautiful writing from it. Our topic in maths is angles and properties of polygons; the homework reflects this and all children should be able to attempt it.

In science, we've been looking at stages in human development and in topic we continue to look at Tonga.  We're learning a Polynesian song and our dance classes have included South Pacific dances.  This will all come together for the Key Stage 2 Commonwealth sharing at the end of term. 

We had a fun and informative day on the last day of term. Sarah Saunders from the Dog Trust came in to give talks to year groups and some excellent dog safety advice, which, in my opinion, everyone could benefit from. Pictures and write up to follow!

 

I'm looking forward to the next half of this term; these children continue to delight and amaze me with their energy, enthusiasm and 

creativity.

Best wishes

Ms Flint

The Girl and The Fox

We watched a short film and broke the story into sections, writing a paragraph on each one.  Here are extracts from Izzy's and Martha's versions of The Girl and The Fox. Watch the original film here:

The Girl and the Fox

 

First week back, we had the year 5 and 6 inter-house cross country run which was won by Doughty; their 4 runners completed five laps of the field in a total of 17.07 minutes, beating Rawding into second place. 

We had a visit from 401 marathon runner Ben Smith, who told us about his next challenge to run across America in 38 days.  Along with the rest of the school, we made 2 "windows" for Foston church's annual Twelve Days of Christmas. I can't wait to see our nine ladies dancing and ten lords a-leaping displayed.

Hello!

It was great to meet the parents and carers of class 9 and have time to talk about how the children are getting on.  Thank you all for coming.

Some people requested information about spellings; here is a link to the National Curriculum primary spellings. Look at page 16 for year 3/4 and page 23 for year 5/6 ones.

We enjoyed a visit from author Dan Walker, who gave us an insight into his journey to becoming a writer. There was an opportunity to buy signed copies of his latest book.  The children were inspired by his talk, some grabbing pen and paper to start writing straightaway!

 

Enjoy half term! 

 

Best wishes

Ms Flint.

We follow a Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum that covers many different topics over the year.  It is a discussion based curriculum, with lots of talk about different issues that will face children both in their day to day life and that they may hear about in the wider world.   I will, of course, make sure that all classrooms discussions are age appropriate and respectful.  If there is anything you need any further information about, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Everyone in years 5 & 6 should know their times tables up to 12 times 12.  The ones that seem to cause most trouble in our class are 6,7,8 and 9 so here are some songs that we use in class to practise them.  Feel free to have a sing at home!

Grammar has become a big focus of the literacy curriculum in the last few years and there's lots of grammar vocabulary that the children need to learn and remember - and I mean LOTS!  The children will be given a copy of the document below before the Christmas holidays and I have suggested that they take two or three terms each week and make a concerted effort to learn what the word means, just like they make an effort to learn their spellings each week.  I will of course teach them the terminology in school and practise how to use it, but regular repetition of the words at home will really help to make sure that they know them.
