Welcome to Class Nine
Welcome back class Nine. We hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday. We are really looking forward to the exciting year ahead.
In English we will be reading the story 'Dougal’s Deep Sea Diary’. Pupils will be describing characters, writing diary extracts, writing a fact file on Jacques Cousteau (famous diver) and participating in weekly VIPER sessions. Pupils will also be focusing on SPAG revision tasks.
In Mathematics we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.
In Science, we will be learning about Rocks. Pupils will be developing their ability to:
In Geography, our topic is 'Where in the World are We?'. Pupils will be taught to make links between these areas of learning, with the aim of developing engaged, motivated and curious learners that take an interest in the world around them. Pupils will be using maps, Google Maps, Aerial photos and identifying physical and human features of Liverpool and their local area. Pupils will also be accessing our new orienteering programme which has recently been built on our school grounds.
In computing, children will be learning about connecting computers. Learners will develop their understanding of digital devices, with an initial focus on inputs, processes, and outputs. They will also compare digital and non-digital devices. Next, learners will be introduced to computer networks, including devices that make up a network’s infrastructure, such as wireless access points and switches. Finally, learners will discover the benefits of connecting devices in a network
In Art, children will be introduced to the artist Clifford Possum, his life and how he became an artist. They will observe his art work and create their own pieces of aboriginal art using skills they have developed throughout the term.
Every Tuesday we will have P.E. 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 email@example.com
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.
