Welcome to Class Nine
Welcome back Class Nine,
During the Autumn Term, we will be learning all about The Ancient Greek Civilisation with a focus on daily life in Ancient Greece and Greek Mythology.
In Art we will be focusing on the Artist Anodonna khara and developing our tonal shading skills when drawing.
In English we will be reading various Greek Myths linking into our Ancient Greek Topic and will develop our writing skills when retelling stories
In Mathematics we will be learning about number and place value and addition and subtraction.
In Science, we will be learning about electricity. Children will be working towards being able to identify common appliances that run on electricity. We will be constructing simple electrical circuits and identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers
In Computing, we will be learning about online safety and exploring Purple Mash.
Class Nine will be doing P.E every Wednesday and Friday 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pupils in Class Nine should practise their spellings daily at home. They will have a spelling test and receive new spellings every Friday.
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.
