Welcome to Class 9's Wonderfully Wacky Webpage!
Hello, Class 9!
Week ending Friday 22nd December:
Wow! What an amazing, festive final week, Year 5! Your performances in our 'Christmas Carol' were utterly outstanding; every single one of you shone and I was so very proud to see your fabulous acting and singing. A huge well done!
We have had a wonderful week; as well as the fantastic Christmas performance, we've created some brilliant artwork and enjoyed some wonderful festivities together! Thank you all for being such superstars this term - you make me super proud on a daily basis and I'm looking forward to seeing what the Spring term has in store for us all!
Remember, it's our Christmas 'fuddle' on Friday afternoon - you have all 'signed up' for a food item to bring along on Friday (these are written in your diaries!) Don't worry if you bring something different instead or forget, we'll have plenty to go around! Also, remember it's Christmas jumper day on Friday, too.
We're nearly there, guys, I can almost hear Santa's sleigh approaching!

Spring Term Topics
In the Spring term, we have two mini topics to look forward to!
'Space' (first half term)
'Vicious Vikings' (second half term)
In January, we'll begin our space topic, which will link perfectly to our science.
Our science topic next half term will be 'Earth and Space'.
Our text for the first half term is 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell Boyce and it's one you'll all completely love! Frank Cottrell Boyce also wrote one of my favourite books, 'Millions', and he is a very funny author.
Teachers and parents can communicate about homework and reading via the diary. Children have a responsibility to let the teacher know when they have a message to respond to. Diaries should be in school daily.
Children are allocated a book band based on their reading attainment. Children are encouraged to choose their own reading book from the allocated level. Children are able to change their book once it is indicated in the home school diary that the book has been read at home. Children are sometimes encouraged to reread books to support their reading fluency and comprehension. Reading of additional materials from school or home is actively encouraged.
