Welcome to the Summer Term!
Thank you to all of you for working hard and keeping in touch with me via Seesaw and Purple Mash. It has been lovely to keep up to date with what you have been up to work or play so please keep that contact.I have left packs for all of you at school, that are maths and literacy based to keep you busy and I am thrilled that so many of you have picked them up already. I will set activities on a Monday morning for you on Seesaw and Purple Mash, but please do not feel pressured to do them all. Do what you can in these strange times, even a quick message to me is great so that I know how you are doing.
I will post a video on Seesaw each week to make contact with everyone and then I can tell you about my time in Lock down too. The few of you I had not heard from I made contact with last week by email or phone and that was lovely.
Keep safe my lovely Genies and immense thanks to all you parents for the terrific job you are doing.
13th May - Hello Class 9! I hope you, your families & friends are all well. It seems you're all keeping busy, whether in school or at home and I'm trying to keep busy, too! I have missed coming in on Mondays but I hope I'll see you before the summer or perhaps in the autumn if something has to be organised then. Meanwhile, take care, stay well & stay positive! Mr. Wright

We will be learning about the classification of living things and how Linnaeus devised 5 kingdoms to characterise species. We will find out about these kingdoms and use these to classify features of living things. We will look at micro- organisms and how they can be useful to human beings.
Swedish botanist, zoologist & physicist Carl Linnaeus (1707-1778)
