WELCOME TO CLASS 9

Mrs Gough and Mrs Spendlow

Spring term 2019

Our new topic is-THIS IS WILMSLOW!

 

Welcome back to a new year and a new term! We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas holiday and a good rest. 

During the  first half of Spring term the children will be learning all about our local environment, Wilmslow! This will be a geography and history based topic. The children will learn about the geography of Wilmslow and its origins and what it has to offer, such as amenities. This will also form part of the English curriculum and the children will write articles to persuade people to live in Wilmslow, join our wonderful school and look at how we can improve upon what we already have. 

In science we will learning about electrictity. This will involve learning about safety and electricity, how circuits work, and the conductors and insulators of electricity. This is always an exciting science topic as there will be lots of 'hands on' activities centered around building various circuits and testing conductors. Additionally we have chosen to do our class assembly on this which will take place on Friday 8th February at 9.00am.

 

Our P.E days are Monday for indoor P.E and Friday for outdoor P.E. Please make sure your child has appropriate kit, including trainers, in school at all times.It would be safer that children who have long hair tie their up on these days and if they wear earrings then these are removed if possible. Thank you.

 

 Homework

To develop into fluent, confident readers it is important for children to read at home

with their parents. They could read their reading book, a library book, the

newspaper or a magazine - it is all good practice! Please listen to your child read as

often as possible, talk to them about what they have read and sign their reading diary as a record of

what they have done at home.  

 

All homework is handed out on a Friday and should be returned by Wednesday at 

at the latest. Usually, children will have maths, English and spellings homework to 

complete each week.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
