Welcome to Class 9's Wonderfully Wacky Webpage!
Friday 15th June
Happy Friday, guys! A super week in Year 5. We have mastered converting between grams and kilograms, as well as metres and kilometres in maths; we have written some superb character descriptions in English linked to our focus text, Goodnight, Mister Tom, and we have enjoyed learning more about the key events of WWII and ordering them on a timeline. This afternoon was fab, too - we had Neil, a cricket coach from Eastwood Town, come in to do a cricket taster session with us! Grandparent's afternoon was a wonderful event in Class 9 - thank you so much to the grandparents who spent the afternoon with us!
A great week, all in all!
Well done to Gracie in Goldbook today - and Ben, who was poorly! You'll get your Goldbook spot next week, don't you worry!
We have Shelby in Goldbook next Friday, too - what a superstar!
Have a great weekend, you fantastic bunch!
See you on Monday!

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.
