Class Teacher – Miss Smart
PPA Teacher – Mrs Sims
We would like to share some of the important information for our class.
Our ‘Parental Information Sheet’ for Class 9 can be found here.
If you are not yet doing so, we would recommend you follow us on Twitter (@GaerPrimary). Throughout the week children’s learning is celebrated through Twitter using the #GPSClass9 hash tag.
Spring Term 2019
‘Spring into Wales’
Since our exciting Project Launch a few weeks ago, the children in Class 9 have been busy creating Welsh stories, poems and artwork in preparation for our Eisteddfod celebrations.
We have also started our learning about the Stuarts and the children are looking forward to their upcoming trip to Llancaiach Fawr. The children have lots of questions about The Stuarts, The Plague and The Great Fire of London. After half term they will be showcasing their learning through drama, dance, artwork and ICT.
Home Learning will be given out every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. It will consist of a mixture of Spellings, Maths and Topic work. Help and support from home is very welcome, as our aim is for the children to share their learning with you. Please encourage and maintain the high standards of presentation and layout the they produce in class.
Children will receive a new Home reading book every Friday. They keep the book for the whole week and should aim to read 5/10 minutes every day. Many of the books have additional reading activities ideas inside the front or back cover.
The children will bring home a book which is at a level they can comfortably read independently. However they will be reading more challenging texts in class during guided reading and literay sessions.
Class 9 will have PE lessons on Tuesday every week but we would reccomend that the children have P.E. kits in school everyday to make the most of any nicer weather this term.
Indoor PE kit: Navy Shorts/Plain White Round-Neck T-shirt.
Outdoor PE kit: Navy Hooded Sweatshirt/Navy Jogging Bottoms/Trainers.
Children will need to remove earrings themselves to take part in PE lessons.
If you have any queries, please contact myself via the school office. Many thanks.
