Welcome To Class 8!
Miss Talbot (Mon/Tues/Weds) and Mrs Pugh (Thurs/Fri) are both really looking forward to working with you this year.
This term we will be reading
'The Wild Robot' by Peter Brown.
We will be completing lots of written tasks based on what we have read each week. This will include character and setting descriptions, diary entries, newspaper reports and instruction writing.
During the autumn term we will be improving our skills and understanding of place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division (with lots of times tables practise).
Our Science topics this term are 'Electricity' followed by 'Forces and Magnets'.
We will be making circuits and investigating which materials are magnetic.
Our topic work will take us back in time to the days when the Romans were the most powerful nation in the world followed in the 2nd half term by exploring the lives of the Vikings. We will look at how and where they lived and the lasting influences they both had on Britain today.
Our R.E. topic this term is about signs and symbols. Throughout the topic we will be questioning 'What is light and dark?'
We will focus on E-Safety during our computing time.
This term's P.S.H.E. lessons will encourage the children to really think about what it is that makes them special. The topic is called 'Magnificent Me'.
The Art & D.T. lessons that class 8 will be taking part in will be delivered by the very talented Mrs Sudra. She will relate all of her lessons to the topic work that we are doing. The children will be using a wide range of materials, tools and techniques to complete their given tasks.
Our P.E. lessons will take place every Thursday. Please remember to send your child to school dressed in their P.E. kit every Thursday. (Dark bottoms and white t-shirt.) We aim to carry out all of our P.E. lessons outdoors until further notice so your child will need to come to school in suitable P.E. footwear. However, if it is deemed too wet to be outdoors then these lessons will take place in the hall so please send your child to school every Thursday with their plimsols. (Bare feet are no longer allowed until further notice.)
French and Music
We will be following a new scheme of work for French this year which we are very excited to get started on! For Music, Year 3s will follow the 'Music Express' scheme of work whilst the Year 4 children will be learning to play the Ukulele.
Spellings and Homework
Every Friday, spellings will be assessed and homework will be marked. There is an expectation that every child will practise their spellings at home daily and that homework will be at least attempted and returned on time. New spellings and homework will be sent home every Friday.
