CLASS 9- Thursday 25th March
CLASS 10- Thursday 31st March
Welcome to the webpage for classes 9 and 10.
We are so pleased to be welcoming you all back to school. It has been a while since some of you were last in school so it will be great to finally see each other in person! We have all been very impressed with the effort and enthusiasm you have shown, we know it has been challenging at times, so well done! We will continue to focus on developing our independent learning skills in class and celebrating our learner of the week each Friday.
Mrs Shere will be joining the team in Year 4. She will be our reading assistant and will be reading with you all as much as possible each week. We are sure you will all make her feel very welcome.
Our home learning task each week will be uploaded onto our Google Classroom so please log on each Friday to see what learning activity has been set. In addition to this, weekly spellings will be accessed on Spelling Shed and we will be setting battles to encourage you to log on and improve your rapid recall of the times tables we have learnt in class.
On this page you can keep up to date with our learning journey and find out what we have been doing and what we will be doing in the future. Please keep checking to see our amazing work! We will be uploading pictures of the learning that is taking place in school.
PE lessons will continue to be on a Friday during Term 4 for both Class 9 and 10. The children will need to wear their PE kit to school every Friday during Term 4.Can we also remind you that long hair will need to be tied back and earrings removed?
Please can we remind children to bring their red reading records into school every Friday. They will remain in school over the weekend and be sent home again the following Monday so that home reading can be recorded. There is a termly tracker gird in each class to monitor how many times the children are reading at home. Our aim is for each child to read at least 4 times a week, when this is achieved the children receive a raffle ticket and are entered into the draw which takes place at the end of each term. Reading is a real focus for us in school and a life skill for children to develop. Please support your child as frequently as possible.

From Term 4, we will be using Google Classroom to upload our weekly homework. We would like the children to complete the task and submit their work each week. Each week a new sheet detailing the spellings and task set by your child's teacher will be uploaded. Please support your child in completing the activities on Google Classroom.
Your child has also received log in details for 'Spelling Shed' this term. We would like the children to log on to throughout the week to support them to learn their weekly spellings in a fun, interactive way. The spellings should match the weekly spellings that are taught in class and form their weekly spelling test. There may be times when additional spellings are set, these could be subject specific or additional targeted spellings individualised for your child.
We would also encourage your child to log onto TTRS to continue to develop their rapid recall of multiplication facts.
Many thanks for your continued support and understanding.
We encourage the children to develop skills as independent learners and celebrate their successes. Our 'Learning to Learn' characters are displayed in the classrooms and each week the children have an opportunity to nominate a class member to be awarded the 'Learner of the Week' certificate. The nominations are completed by every child in class, we encourage them to think about a class member who has demonstrated one of the skills and give an example of how they have done this.
There is a large certificate displayed in class and each week this is updated and the nomination slips displayed so that we can see why this particular person was chosen. It is a great opportunity for the children to reflect on the learning each week and how they and others have demonstrated independent learning skills.
More information about our 'Learning to Learn' characters can be found on the 'Curriculum' page on our school website.
This half term holiday we would like you to complete one of the activities related to our theme – Tell Me A Tale. This is the perfect opportunity to work with your siblings – don’t forget to send us your photos through Google Classroom!
Have fun and lose yourself in a good book!
