WELCOME TO CLASS 9
AUTUMN TERM 2019 - 2ND HALF
Our new topic is 'What is the problem with single-use plastic?'
In English, we will be finding out how to create tension in our writing, as well as writing leaflets and cinquain poems. In maths, we will be learning about multiplication and division and continuing to practise our times tables. In science, we will be studying sound and discovering more about how we hear.
WHAT ARE WE READING IN CLASS 9?
We have started reading 'Spylark' by Danny Rurlander. It is an action/adventure mystery story about a boy who explores the Lake District with his drone and stumbles across a terrorist plot. Who is the man with the binoculars? Why did he want to sink the boat? Is Tom safe?

WHO IS THE 'STAR OF THE WEEK'?
Every week, a new 'Star of the Week' will be chosen. This will be someone who has impressed Mr Hughes or one of the other adults who work with Class 9. Their picture will appear here and then below in the gallery. The 'Star of the Week' is allowed to choose the register language for the following week.
Well done to our new Star of the Week, who always thinks carefully about the presentation of his work.
WHO HAS THE HAPPIEST REGISTER VOICE?
Every week, Mr Hughes will decide who has the happiest register voice. Their picture will appear here and then below in the gallery.
Well done to our new register winner! Will you be next?
WHO IS THE DAILY GREETER?
In Class 9, we always try to start the day in a friendly and positive way. Every morning, a different child greets the class when they come into the classroom. Children can choose from a hug, a handshake, a high five or a fist bump.
WHAT IS 'READING FOR PLEASURE'?
Every week, Class 9 enjoys Reading for Pleasure. Children are allowed to sit wherever they like - including under tables, on top of tables and even on Mr Hughes' chair - and either read to themselves or each other. They are encouraged to talk about their book choices and make recommendations.
Every Friday, you will be given this homework to complete by the following Wednesday:
- Reading comprehension or SPAG exercise
In addition, all children will be expected to bring their signed reading records into school each day. If you have any difficulty completing any of your homework, please ask for help before it is due in.
