Class 9

Welcome to Class 9! 

Welcome to Class 9. Our class teacher is Mrs Steadman and Mrs Preston also works with us on Fridays. Our teaching assistant is Miss Allsopp.  

Your child has been given a reading day could you please ensure reading folders are brought to school on this day for changing. We are also using the Go Read app this year to log home and school reading. Please keep reading for pleasure at home – there will be prizes for our top readers! 

Our P.E day is Tuesday and during the Autumn term we will be swimming on Thursday afternoons. 

Our topics this term are Biomes and Animals and Living Things. We will also be studying the work of the artist Paul Klee and improving our drawing skills.  

Homework this year will consist of weekly spellings uploaded to Spelling Shed and weekly practise of times tables using T.T. Rockstars. Your child will also bring home a Purple Mash and Go Read log-in. I will send home each half term a suggested activity list to support learning at home. 

Here are some photographs of our learning…
