Stimulating Young Minds


Class 9

Welcome to Class 9smiley


We are looking forward to studying World War 2 this term. Our novel is a classic-Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian about a young boy evacuated from London who finds a kind soul in Mister Tom. We will use the novel to inspire our writing.

We will be learning about many aspects of WW2 including , the events leading up to the war, the role of women, the home front, the use of propaganda and  evacuees during The Blitz. We will be visiting Beaumanor Hall in November for their WW2 day and we are looking forward to a visit from Creative Learning Services to learn more about WW2 and handle some artefacts. 


PE will be on a Monday and we ask the pupils to come dressed in their PE kit


In maths we will be covering Place Value, the four operations and perimeter and area. 


During PSHE, the children will be thinking about all the ways in which why they are special. 


Our science topic this term is Electricity. For this learning, the children will learn about the differences and compare a variety of circuits and gain and understanding as  can be mixed, dissolved, reversibly and irreversibly changed. 


This term, we will be focusing on e-safety within our computing lessons and how whilst the internet can be a wonderful place, there are also some dangers that come with it. We will also be using the iPad to research within computing lessons and other lessons.

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!
