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.

European Languages Day.

Tuesday 26th September is the European Languages Day. We will be celebrating this across the school and learning all about the language and culture of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany. On this day we encourage your children to wear the colours of any of these countries.

Spellings

Letters Home

Just a reminder to check your children's bags at home. All communication from school to home is intended to be useful and to keep you informed, however it sometimes ends up hiding in the bottom of bags. We do remind children to give these letters to you straight away, but we know that it can easily be forgotten.

Meet the Teacher

A big thank you to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher' this week. For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon is attached.

Thanks again!

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.

Residentials

Class 9 really enjoyed their visit to Fox Howl in March 2017. They developed their independence and team building skills. The visit was enjoyed by all. We are looking forward to visiting Burwardsley this year.
