Welcome to Class Nine
I hope you all have had a lovely time with your families over the Easter break. I would like to say a special thank you to each and every one of you for all of your hard work during the pandemic.
Summer Term 1
In English this term we will be learning all about The Great Fire of London. We will be working as a team to solve the mystery of the class fire, sequencing a timeline of events for The Great Fire of London and creating various types of reports.
In Math this term we will be following the appropriate curriculum for each child and revisiting basic skills to try and support children getting back into the curriculum.
During this term, our Topic will be ‘it all Leeds to Liverpool’ with a focus on the importance and significance of canals.
In Art we will be looking at the work of William Morris and how his art work focused on printing. We will ourselves have a go at various printing styles in our lessons such as foam board printing, mono printing and printing with objects. We will use our printing techniques to design and create our own textiles project.
In Science, our focus for learning will be Properties and Changes of Materials.
In Computing, Class Nine will be developing their coding skills using some basic coding programmes.
P.E will be every Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the correct kit.
Our main focus in Class Nine is to create a fun, positive and most importantly, a safe environment for the children. If you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me through your child's home/school diary or you can email email@example.com.
Pupils in Class Nine should practise their spellings daily at home. They will have a spelling test on a Friday and will receive new spellings every Monday.
Please make sure you read with your child daily and make note of what they have read in thier reading record.
Pupils should also access TT Rockstars daily for 15 minutes.
At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.
Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/School Reading Record Book)
The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established home routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.
Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.
Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
