Welcome to Class 9 - Year 3/4

Welcome to our new Web page.

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Dakin

Classroom Support - Miss Payne

Class 9 strive to be the best class in the school!  We are always excited to learn and to be inspirational global citizens.

Homework

Maths and English homework is set on Fridays and should be returned by the following Tuesday. Children should be able to complete all homework independently as it is often simply a recap of topics covered in school. If your child is genuinely finding the homework difficult don't hesitate to inform their teacher before the homework is due.

Children should read, practise their spelling using the handwriting sheet and learn their times tables every night.  Handwriting sheets should be handed in on Thursdays.

Reading Awards

Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term. To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinums are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Help class 9 to win the trophy and read lots at home.

P.E.

P.E. usually takes place twice a week.  Your child will need both their indoor and outdoor P.E. kit in school. Our P.E. lessons are on Friday mornings at 9:15-10:15 and we currently swim on Wednesdays afternoons

Swimming

Swimming runs weekly on Wednesdays. The instructors would like us to remind you that hair must be tied up, no jewellery is allowed and goggles are only allowed with permission.

Just a reminder that for next week's swimming lesson the children will need an extra pair of clothes (pyjamas or old clothes will be perfect). 

Panto in School

On our first day back in school we will be enjoying a visit from a Pantomime company who will put on a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. We are very much looking forward to this. What a fun way to start our new term!

Spellings

C'est fantastique!

In Years 3 and 4 we have been really enjoying our French lessons. We have been learning to say the colours, the members of your family, and the shops you might see in a town, in French. Here is some of our fantastic French work.

Jack and the Beanstalk

What better way to start a new half term than with an energetic, modern pantomime show.  The children (and the teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the interactive performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. As well as being entertained, we were inspired and children across the school are writing their very own version of the tale. Here are some photos from the wonderful morning. See if you can spot two of our teachers putting on a show with the performers...

Class 9 Has Talent!

For working so well this term, Class 9 earned a treat afternoon on the last Friday of term. We decided we wanted to hold a talent show to showcase our different skills and abilities. What a wonderful show it was, from Comedians to Magicians Class 9 has it all. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

European Languages Day

Tuesday 26th September was European Languages Day. We celebrated this across the school and learned all about the language, culture and cuisine of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany

Reading Plus Online

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Swimming

Swimming runs weekly on Wednesdays. The instructors would like us to remind you that hair must be tied up, no jewellery is allowed and goggles are only allowed with permission. The children always enjoy their swimming lessons and we're looking forward to getting underway with them.
