Hello and welcome to Class 9 webpage.


We are a mixed class of Y5 and Y6. Our topic this year is the Stone Age.Our reading book this term is Stig of the Dump. Stig of the  dump  is a book about a boy called Barney who falls  in a chalk pit  and meets a man called Stig .In Literacy we are looking at innovative language and using it  for our poems. Our maths work is mental addition and subtraction. Homework is set on a Friday and handed in on a Thursday..The star of the week assembly is held on a Friday so work hard all week.The awards includes:

Mr Watson sometimes does back flips for us in PE lesson.

This year we are doing French instead of Spanish.

The first week back we did a lot of assessments.

On Wednesday's we have Mrs Mills for Art and RE.In RE we are looking at Buddhism.

 In Art we doing cave paintings which will eventually lead up to Street Art.

In PE we are doing Netball.

On Tuesdays and Thursday is Ninja Maths Morning. 

We are also doing Clics and Learn its.



It's week 3 already and we've been busy!

It was great to meet parents and carers last week; I forgot to say we're learning French as our modern foreign language. We had our first lesson together and sang our way through the days of the week and the months of the year. Due to popular demand we also danced our way through numbers 1 - 20.  I'm looking forward to our next French foray.


Photos taken during netball will follow shortly.  Class 9 are all taking part and showing great team spirit. Mr Watson, our new sports apprentice, rewarded the class with a spectacular back flip.  He's running cheer leading classes this term - I think after his impressive display, many will want to join.  Ms Boden runs a club on Tuesday evenings and is encouraging membership now.  


Our theme for this term is the Stone Age and we have named the table groups accordingly: Avebury, Stonehenge, Skara Brae, Cresswell and Newgrange. The children have been asked to find out a bit about their allocated stone age site and feed back anything they discover.


Below is a copy of our timetable which we stick to as far as possible although obviously there are times when other events take over.  We will be learning French this year which links in with foreign language teaching in secondary school.


Year 5 will have swimming on Tuesdays, starting 19.9.17.  Both year groups have PE on Thursday afternoon.  Please check your child/ren have PE kit which fits and is named clearly.


Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be due in the following Thursday; the children will have homework sheets and a spelling and writing book and a folder to keep them in.  Whilst I do encourage you to take an interest in what your children are doing for homework, please try and make sure that they are taking responsibility for completing it and remembering to bring it to school - it won't be long before they have to remember various pieces of homework at secondary school so the sooner they get in good habits, the better.  Homework will usually consist of maths questions and spellings.  Please also encourage your child to read every night for 15 minutes, with you if possible.  Reading lots of different things will help them to become more fluent readers but will also help them to become better writers.


It's going to be a fabulous year!

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.
