Welcome to Class 9!
Hello, the Class 9 team would like to welcome you all to our class page.
We are all so very proud of our pupils who have made an outstanding start to
the school year.
We are looking forward to sharing our progress and achievements.
Our teachers this year are Mrs Barrett, Mrs Dennett and Mrs O’Connor and our teaching
assistants are Mrs Wardell-Appleton and Mr Riley.
Religious Education is such an important aspect of our school community as we
have Christ at the centre of all that we do. In RE lessons this term we have
studied a topic called ‘Ourselves’ and we have explored scripture, artwork, songs
and other religious sources to gain a deepening awareness of who we are and
how we are made in the image and likeness of God. The topic that we have just
started and that we will finish after half term is a sacramental topic and in this
topic we will learn about the Sacrament of Marriage. We have already explored
what it means to show care and commitment, and after half term, we will
explore the marriage liturgy in further detail and what it means to make this
lifelong promise to one another. After the sacramental topic, we will end our
term with our Advent and Christmas topic where we will explore what it means
to wait hopefully.
So far this year in Maths we have studied and secured our knowledge of place
value and applied this to problem solving and reasoning questions. We have also
worked hard with addition and subtraction calculations. We will soon be moving
onto a new statistics unit where we will investigate and explore graphs and
English this term is based on our World War Topics. We have focused our
writing on our class novel, ‘The Silver Donkey’ and created a historical recount
of the Battle of the Somme. The children have been very respectful and
thoughtful as we have been learning about this period of History.
This will really be an exciting year as we will celebrate our academic successes,
our developing skills and growing talents.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and returned on a Thursday via Google
Classroom. Weekly tables and spellings tests will happen in school on a Thursday
morning. Reading should also be going on at home at least three times per week
with an adult signing in the reading record.
Our PE day is Thursday where children are expected to wear the full school PE
kit. Please make sure warm layers are also available for the times we go outside.
Please follow us as we continue our Class 9 journey and thank you for all your
Mrs Dennett, Mrs Barrett, Mrs Wardell-Appleton, Mr Riley and Miss O’Connor.
