Base 9 - The Sharks

Welcome to Base 9’s webpage.

Mr Hale would like to welcome you to our class home page. Here you will be able to find out about what we have been learning and planned future activities. You will be able to view homework activities for the week along with the spelling and times tables focus.

In Base 9 we view learning as a journey and along the way it might be tricky, but we are learning to view problems as a challenge to be conquered rather than an obstacle in our path.

We hope you visit our webpage regularly for updates on how we are growing as learners and to see some of the fun learning opportunities that we have been taking part in.

Value of the Month

Our value of the Month for February is equality. We will be looking for ways we can show we respect and care for everyone we meet equally. In class, we will be celebrating difference and how each individual is special in their own way. 

Term Theme

This term our topic is called Trade and Economics

Throughout this topic, the children will focus on answering the questions ‘Is international trade a good thing? Why is trade so important?’ Belugas will learn about the three different types of production and the main imports and exports from the UK. The children will learn about the location of El Salvador in relation to the UK and the impact of globalisation on trade within the world. The children will go on to learn about the importance of Fair Trade and where the UK gets the energy from to power our homes. 

Our love to read book this half term is Windrush Child by Benjamin Zephaniah. The children have expressed their excitement to read this book. Each day we will read a quality picture book in our reading for pleasure sessions, which all children look forward to at the end of the day.

In Science, Base 9 will be learning about the human life cycle and about the changes of the body during puberty. They learn about the development of a baby during pregnancy and about the birth of a baby.

This Week's Homework

Hello all, Each child will bring home their individual homework folders , which will contain activities that support the learning in the class. In addition, children should access times table rockstars where work is being set on a weekly basis to practise their multiplication facts.

They should also read 4 times per week at home - this can be a book of their choice to develop individual reading for enjoyment. 

The children's  individual folders and need to be submitted by Wednesday evening.



This Week's handwriting 

Our weekly handwriting words are taken from the year 5/6 common exception words. 

Practice daily to ensure you know them by Friday.

We will also explore these words in the class and play games to make sure the children are familiar with them

Times Tables

This weeks timetable practice is focused around the x7tables. We practise daily in school but keep practising at home on TT rock stars
