In Class 9, PE lessons take place on Tuesday & Thursday every week. Please ensure that your child's comes to school in their PE kit (including trainers) on these days. PE is being taught outside (no matter the weather) so children will need black jogging pants and a waterproof coat in addition to their usual PE kit. 



Children are expected to read daily at home. Children will be issued with reading books along with a reading record and these must be brought into school every day. Books will be changed as soon as children have finished them to ensure they read a wide variety of books. Please ensure that when your child reads at home that you sign their reading record and put the page numbers so we can keep track of where they're up to. If a child's reading record is signed at least 3 times a week they will receive a treat in class.



Homework this year will be set online via IXL. Tasks will be set every Friday and will need to be handed in by the following Wednesday. To access IXL, please visit - we will send your child's log in details home in the first week.


At the end of each half-term, children will be given a pre-learning task in order to prepare them for the next half-term's topic. This must be completed and handed back in on the first day back after the holidays.



Class 9's weekly spelling test is on a Friday. A new list of spellings to practice will be given to take home every week and will also be uploaded to Spelling Frame
