Welcome to class 9! Mrs Anderson will teach the class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and Miss Baliol-Key will finish the week on Thursday and Friday. After a very strange summer term we're all back and raring to go and looking forward to spending time with you all. The autumn term at least will be a bit different with staggered start and finish times and lunch at a different time but we'll all get used to it soon .
Our topic this term is Romans so we'll be finding out all about their successful and unsuccessful invasions of Britain, trying out some mosaic art and writing using our new historical knowledge. Our class timetable is attached below for you to see what else we'll be getting up to.
Our PE day is Thursday so remember to come in your kits on that day - as the weather gets colder don't forget that you can wear sweatshirts and tracksuit bottoms. But remember it has to be school kit please, no football shirts or random colours. We will also do 15 minutes of activity every day to help get your bodies moving and your brains ready for learning!
Homework will be given on a Friday and should be returned the following Thursday - it will always include some more practise on the maths we have been doing in class and the weekly spellings that children should learn, in whatever way best suits them, ready for a weekly test. We would also like children to read with or to an adult as often as possible, ideally 15 minutes every day. Reading regularly massively helps with both reading and writing skills so please do try and find time to do this. Initially homework will be on printed sheets but we are looking to make homework all online to save paper and so that it's all in one place; we'll keep you posted on this.
We appreciate that opportunities to speak to us are limited at the moment, but if you do need us, make contact with the office by email, phone or in person and we will get back to you.
