Welcome to Class Nine
Welcome back class nine. We hope you all had a wonderful half term.
In English we will be reading the story ‘The Queen’s Hat’. Pupils will be learning about verbs and how they can use verbs to help them create an audio video retell of the story. Children will then use their knowledge of the story to create a story prequel. The children will follow on from this, by creating a newspaper report of the missing Queen’s hat. Finally, the children will use the information they have learnt about Queen Elizabeth II to create a Non-Chronological report.
Our weekly rhyme time poetry lesson will focus on mysteries and riddles.
At the end of term, we will have a week block of poetry with a focus on limerick poems.
In Mathematics we will be focusing on number, place value, fractions and decimals and percentages.
Children will also have one lesson a week solely focusing on Shape, Space and Measure.
In Science, we will be learning about ‘Animals Including Humans’. Pupils will be developing their ability to:
In History, our topic is ‘Rule Britannia'. Pupils will be describing events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally. Class 9 will be learning about Queen Elizabeth ll and her national achievements. Pupils will be learning about her Coronation and how it was celebrated in Liverpool. Pupils will also be comparing housing and technology from past and present (1920's - 2020's).
In computing, children will be learning about conditional events. In Level 3- Conditional events, children will learn to code using hit events, which allow us to set conditions for the code inside it.
Children will also have a few sessions focusing on self-image and identity.
Design and Technology
Our Topic for this term is Free Standing Structures. Pupils will receive a challenge which is to create a free standing building with a bridge to stop the 'bad guys' from stealing the Queen's treasure.
Every Wednesday we will have P.E. Children will be developing their knowledge and understanding around the sport ‘Dodgeball’. Please make sure you send your child's P.E kit into school.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 to 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 period 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.
