Welcome to Class 9
All About Us
In Class 9, we follow a broad and balanced curriculum to allow our children to be successful learners, develop independence and be responsible citizens. We are ambitious in Class 9 and want children to develop positive relationships with children and adults, this will then allow them to be confident individuals ready to be successful in the next stages of their lives.
Class 9 have PE on a Wednesday and go for swimming lessons on a Friday morning during the Autumn Term. We have a music specialist on a Monday morning in the Spring and Summer Term who supports the delivery of our music curriculum. Our kitchen time is a Friday Morning, during the year we will cook sweet and savoury items, looking at how to prepare food safely and hygienically, as well as looking at healthy options.
As a school we also have 2 mini buses, which we try to use as much as possible during the school year to experience capital culture.
In Class 9 we aim to teach our English Curriculum using a class book. This term we are using Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone as our key text. Through the book we will look at comprehension skills such as infrernece and deduction. We will also usie the text to support the teaching of grammar. Finally the book will be the stimulus for all our writing within English.
As a school we follow the White Rose long term plan, encouraging children to develop their learning using the concrete – pictoral – abstract approach (CPA). On a morning, children complete ‘Morning Maths’ work, normally focussing on a number-based objective. Children also practice their times tables in numerous ways such as Times Table Rock Stars and the Grid of 144. In addition to this children complete Mathstastics on a weekly basis.
The documents below are an overview of what will be covered in each term in Class 9.
