Class 9

Welcome to Class 9!

In Class 9, we are a fantastic team of individuals who love to learn. We are kind and polite to everyone and we are fantastic citizens.

Our teacher is called Mrs Finney and on a Wednesday morning Mrs Morgan covers our class.

Our teaching assistant’s are Mrs Brooks, Mrs Howard and Miss Ayub

We LOVE to read in Class 9! We read on a regular basis so please make sure your reading record is in school every day. Please remember to read regularly at home too (3 times a week) – you can earn reading tickets which contribute to our whole class reading reward. Children have the opportunity to change their reading book at the end of each day. We also have our wonderful reading spines to take home fortnightly where you can escape into a book of your choice!

Maths homework will be set on a fortnightly basis. Tasks will be set based on the learning you have been doing with your maths teacher.

Spellings will be given every Friday and tested the following week. Remember to practise them every day!

Our PE days are Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon.

(Please make sure your PE kit is in a carrier bag or drawstring bag. This will be sent home every week to be washed and should be returned the following Monday). Please make sure the PE kit  consists of a plain white T-Shirt, black shorts, pumps/trainers and a tracksuit for outside PE.

Sample SATs Practice Papers

Thank you so much to all the grown-ups who joined us for the reading Stay and Learn. We looked at the expectations for reading in Y2 and picked up some handy tips to support reading at home. 

If you feel there is anything else which we could provide to support you at home, please let the Y2 staff know.

Useful Resources and Games

Here are some useful resources and games that can help with learning.

Spelling game – Little Birds

I love this one – chose the year group and then chose the spellings that you would like to practise.

Hit the Button

Versatile maths game – practice doubles, halves, number bonds and times tables.

Save the Whale

Number bonds to 10 – such a useful set of facts to know. We use them for so many parts of our maths. Practice them with this lovely game.

Coconut ordering

Good number ordering game.

Mental maths train

We have been doing lots of work on mental maths strategies in class – have a go by choosing the operation on the train.

Daily 10

A mental maths game. Choose level 1 or 2.

Teaching clock

This is the clock that we have been using in class

Poetry online

Some wonderful poems, read aloud – really worth a look.

Days of the week

Learn the order and spelling of days of the week.

Dinosaur eggs phonics game

High frequency words reading and spelling

Place value sharks

Practice your place value here.

Hickory Dickory Dock

Practice time – year ones work on level 1 for now.

Big Brown Bear

In year 1 we start learning about suffixes and in year 2 we learn about their spelling rules. Here is a nice game to start to understand that suffixes only make sense on some words. Build the jigsaws.

100 square splat

This is the 100 square that we use in class a lot. Its so useful for understanding 1 more, 1 less, 10 more, 10 less, multiples of 10 and counting in 2s or 5s.

Gaitor More or Less

Struggling with more or less? Here is the Gaitor song to help remember that the alligator’s mouth always opens to the largest number.
