Welcome to Class Nine


Welcome back Class Nine,


During  the Summer term we will be learning all about 'Ancient Egyptians' in our topic lessons.


In Art we will be focusing on the artist Michael Angelo and will be  creating our own Ancient Egyptian sculpture.


In English we will be reading 'The Scarab's Secret' linking in with our 'Ancient Egyptians' topic. We will be focusing on our descriptive writing and creating our own information texts.


In Mathematics we will be focusing on number, geometry, position and direction and measurement.


In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. Children will be working towards being able to:


  • recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways
  • explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment
  • recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.


In Computing, we will be learning how to use computers to make music and explore rhythms and melodies.. 


Class Nine will be swimming every Thursday afternoon for P.E. Please ensure children have their swimming kits on this day.


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



Pupils in Class Nine should practise their spellings daily at home. They will have a spelling test and receive new spellings every Monday.


Please make sure you read with your child daily and write this in his/her 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 everyday, 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.
