"To be the best that we can be"

Class 9

Welcome to Class 9

Class teacher - Miss Embley 

Hello and welcome to class 9's page. My name is Miss Embley and I am your child's class teacher this year. On our page, you will be able to access and see what we have been up to in school on a daily basis. I am looking forward to the year ahead with lots of fun and exciting activities planned!

It has been a very exciting half term in class 9 as we have been taking care of our eggs in the incubator and eagerly waiting for the chicks to hatch. After 23 long days, we finally had two chicks hatch and were lucky enough to catch this happening whilst we were in school! The children in year 4 put names into a hat and the lucky winners were Snuffles and Bob, which we have now named the chicks. The children have thoroughly enjoyed having them in class and they will be sad to see them leave.

This week in Science, Class 9 have been exploring what they could replace the wires with in a simple circuit. The materials we used were: paper clips, paper towels, tinfoil and plastic straws. We found out that the paper clip and the tin foil worked because they enabled the bulb to light up. We then learnt that these were conductors and the paper towel and the plastic straws are insulators as they didn’t allow the electricity to freely pass through.

In our Topic lessons, we have been exploring the question ‘How do animal charities help animals?’. This week the children have had a very exciting visit from Michael, who works at Animal Care in Lancaster and his rescue dog Buddy. The children learnt a lot about the responsibilities of having a pet, how the charity helps to support neglected animals and how fundraising works to support the charity. Before the end of the workshop, the children had the opportunity to meet and stroke Buddy!
