Welcome to Class 9

This page will be updated regularly.

Friday 10th July 2020

 

Hi Class 9,

 

So next week is the last week of the strangest academic year ever! Your timetable and resources for next week are above. Thank you to those who have let school know if you are planning to come in for transition the following week. If I didn't get through to you I did leave a voicemail and text. I hope to see you all over those two days at some point! It's such a shame we didn't get to finish the year together but thank you for the time we did get to spend before the school closures! I would like to thank all of the parents and carers for your continued support throughout the year, particularly during the difficult times. I hope you all have an amazing summer (in the circumstances) and wish you and your families the best. Stay safe!!!

 

Miss you!!

 

Miss Cunningham :)

Hi Class 9,

 

I hope you're all well and have had a good week. It was lovely to speak to some of you yesterday, those who I didn't get through to I did leave a message if there was the option. I will be calling again one afternoon this week to let you know which morning you will be in for transition, either Monday 20th July or Tuesday 21st July. Your resources and timetable for next week are above. Let me know if you need anything or want to catch up! Y5@woodlands.academy.

 

Miss you!

Hi Class 9!

Another week done!! For those who were wondering, the little change was because it was my birthday (another year older frown)! Well done to Amber and Charli for figuring it out and getting in touch with me!! Not the best icon but there wasn't a cake or balloon option. I've had a lovely week but was sad to not get to spend it with you guys like we would have! I hope you're all doing okay! Your timetable and resources for next week are above. Please let me know if you need anything or let me know what you're getting up to, Y5@woodlands.academy.

 

Missing you as always!!

Friday 22nd May 2020

 

Hello Class 9! 

 

I hope you are all well! We would've been breaking up from school today for our May half term break and I would've been going on a little holiday, never mind. Hopefully, we'll get some sun and my back garden will be good enough instead! There is no expectation for you to do work next week so enjoy a break! However, if you are looking for something to do or get a little bored, please find some activities and resources above to keep you busy. Obviously, if you have any other ideas you can do that too! 

 

Hope to see you all soon, always missing you!

 

Stay safe and take care, 

 

Miss Cunningham :) 

Friday 15th May 2020

 

Hi Class 9,

 

I hope you and your families are doing well. Your resources for next week are above, including a 'Sports Day' afternoon on Wednesday. All of KS2 will be taking part, as well as other schools, so it would be great if you do too! I have put the official # on the page so if you wanted to share your activities with others taking part you can. Please keep me up to date with what you're getting up to!

 

I don't really have much to tell you, as you can imagine! So here's a random picture from my walk today!

 

 

Stay safe!

 

Missing you, as usual!

 

Miss Cunningham :)

Friday 8th May 2020

 

Hi Class 9, 

 

First of all, can I just say a massive thank you to those of you who I got to speak to on the phone at the end of last week (children and parents). It has kept me smiling all week and I loved speaking to you and hearing what you've been doing. I hope you enjoyed learning about VE Day, I saw lots of decorations up whilst I was on my walk today! Your resources for next week are above. Let me know if you need anything and keep me updated on what you're getting up to! Y5@woodlands.academy

 

Miss you!

 

Miss Cunningham :)

Friday 1st May 2020

 

Hi Class 9,

 

Hope you're all doing okay!! Please find above your resources for the next week. Work has been planned for the Friday but remember it is a bank holiday so there is no expectation to complete it for Friday! It would be nice to do the toast though. Hopefully you'll enjoy learning about VE Day and celebrate at the end of the week.

 

Missing you!

 

Miss Cunningham :)

Hi Class 9,

 

I hope you and your families are doing okay. All of your resources for next week are above. Please let me know if you need anything else. I know it is hard working at home but keep up the good work!!! Saying that, remember to have breaks between tasks, plenty of free time and do lots of things you enjoy! This week, apart from school work, I have been trying some new recipes and doing some boring house jobs! Also, one of my 'lovely' friends nominated me to run 5 km this week for the 'Run 5, Donate 5, Nominate 5 Challenge'. Not being a runner, I wasn't very impressed but...

 

 

I did it!!! This was me after completing the run last night. It was a challenge for me but I felt great afterwards laugh! However, I am resting up today, my legs hurt sad!!! Exercise really does help make you feel better so keep active!! Maybe I'll start running regularly now wink, what do you think?

 

Anyway Class 9, I hope you have a good week, I have seen a couple of you and what you're getting up to on the Facebook page. Please feel free to get in touch-my emails have been very quiet!

Y5@woodlands.academy

 

Missing you, as always.

Hi Class 9!

 

I hope you are all well and managed to have a nice Easter break. I have been trying to keep busy and pass the time by doing lots of jobs in the house and garden plus lots of cooking! I hope you enjoyed our video that we shared with you on the school Facebook page. I have popped it below if you have not seen it or do not have Facebook access.  

 

Your timetable and resources for next week (20.04.20) are above. If you need anything or would like to show me what you've done then please email Y5@woodlands.academy :)

A message from us to you!

Friday 3rd April 2020

 

Hi Class 9,

 

I hope you are all well and have had a good week. Thank you to those of you who have posted on the Facebook page or emailed me, I've loved seeing what you've been getting up to and keeping in touch. It has been great to see some of you trying new things, I had a go at baking brownies from scratch for the first time!

 

 

 

What do you think?

 

As you know, we would have been breaking up today for our Easter holidays so we are not setting you work for the next two weeks. However, Mrs Pearson has very kindly put some Easter activity ideas together if you do want some ideas to keep busy. Anything else you wish to do please do but take a break!! You and your families have been working hard and deserve it!

 

During the holidays, I'm going to try some more baking, do lots of reading, watch some films and maybe a bit of decorating! 

 

Hope to hear from you and hopefully see you soon! 

 

Missing you all, 

 

Miss Cunningham :)

Another lovely week in Class 9! We have learnt some more literacy skills to add towards our biography writing and been comparing numbers in maths. We got out in the outdoor classroom to do some reading and wrote to Gainsborough Old Hall to say what we enjoyed and provide them with some feedback on how to improve future school trips!

Hello! Welcome to Class 9's page! 

 

We have had an exciting start to the Autumn term, beginning our project, "Off with Her Head!"  We visited Gainsborough Old Hall and took a journey back to 1541. We got to dress up in Tudor clothes, explore a Tudor building and even have a go at some Tudor jobs. We worked in a Tudor kitchen and also got the chance to re-enact a Tudor banquet with Henry VIII. We had lots of fun, especially when dressing up and having a go at some of the jobs. We can't wait to learn even more about these interesting times!

Welcome to Class 9!

 

Your teacher will very soon be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we’ve done and more.

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
