Stimulating Young Minds


Class 8

Welcome To Class 8!



The Summer Term Is Here!


You will continue to be taught by Miss Talbot on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and by Mrs Pugh on Thursday and Friday.



This term we will be reading

'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'


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 summer term we will continue to work on our skills and understanding of  multiplication and division, with lots of times tables practise. We will also be working on  mass, capacity, money, decimals, time, position, data and symmetry.




Our Science topics this term are 'Plants' and 'Scientists and Inventors'. We will be learning about the different parts of plants and what they need in order to grow. We will then move on to learning about famous and influential scientists whose work relates to the science topics that we have covered this year.





Our topic work this term is all about 'The Rainforest'. We will be looking at the different parts of the world that have rainforests, their climate, South America and The Amazon Rainforest and what needs to be done to protect the rainforest.



Our R.E. topic this term is called ' Creation and Green Issues'. We will look at how different faiths believe the world was created and what we need to try to do to protect the living things on Earth.


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 relationships. We will discuss the different roles of family members, friendships and keeping ourselves safe.



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 Friday for the whole term and every Tuesday for the first 5 weeks. Please remember to send your child to school dressed in their P.E. kit every on those days. (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 Friday with their plimsols. (Bare feet are no longer allowed until further notice.)


French and Music


We will continue to follow the  scheme of work for French this year.  For Music this term, all children will follow the 'Music Express' scheme of work.

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.
