Welcome to Class 9
Christmas is just around the corner and the children have been working hard. Our topic is rivers and in literacy we are reading the novel the Explorer by Katherine Rundell that is set in the Amazon rainforest. It is all about four children that escape a plane crash and how they survive in the jungle and it is a great read. In geography, we are studying rivers and in history we are studying the local hero and explorer Henry Bates. In science we are looking at the human body.
PE is Monday and the children can come to school wearing their PE kit
Please get in touch via Class Dojo if you have any questions or concerns.

Make The Most Of These Very Unusual Circumstances!
Spend time doing things you don't normally get to do. Help out in the garden, make lunch for the family, wash the pots, design and make board games (you can have a housepoint if you include fraction problems on it) learn to knit and sew and bring your creations in when school reopens, play nicely with your brothers and sisters (Ummmmm, well give that one a go). Keep a diary of all the things you do so we can share them when we are all back in school.
Watch some of those satisfying slime video clips on You Tube that drive me nuts!
