Welcome to Class 9
We are a class of Year 4 and 5 children. Our teacher is Miss Dowson and our teaching assistants are Miss Oliver and Miss Wardell.
In our class we love learning new things! We like to impress our teachers by trying our best and by being independent learners. Our teachers encourage us to grow in confidence by completing tasks independently and take more responsibility for our work.
We have lots of wonderful things planned this year so please keep checking our website and newsletters to find out more.
Thank you for visiting our Class page!

We are Linguists
We have been learning how to read, write and speak in French using adjectives to describe ‘Les Monstres”. We are now looking forward to creating our own. Fantastique!
Class 9 enjoyed having a visit from the Firefighters who taught us how to keep safe. We looked at how to keep safe with electrical products and during firework season. We especially enjoyed getting dressed up as a firefighter and couldn’t believe how heavy all the uniform is!
Joe Hammill from Cattle and Cane came in to class 9 to help us create a song about following in Jesus’ footsteps. The children helped create the lyrics and then recorded the song. This song is used in masses and assemblies.
European Languages Day
The children in class 9 became Greek for the day! Class 9 discovered how lots of words we use in the English language have come from Greek words. They also tried some Greek food including feta cheese and tzatziki. The children really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to learning about the Ancient Greeks in our history topic.
Danelaw Viking Museum
Our Year 4&5 pupils visited the Danelaw Living history museum in York. Arriving as new settlers, the children were given simple period costume and taken to their new homes on the dark-age settlement where they experienced first-hand the daily life of a Viking family. This brought to life our history topic on the Vikings in Britain. The children thoroughly enjoyed learning a range of skills ranging from clay pottery making, storytelling and training to become a Viking guard.
Stay and Pray
Class 9 children invited their family and friends to join them in a special liturgy. The children created their own bidding prayers and led the liturgy.
Class 9 really enjoyed learning some judo skills when destination Judo came in to school. they had to focus on their concentration and balancing skills.
