Class 8

Class 8, can you believe there is only one more week until a well deserved week off.

It has been another very busy week. It all started off with Viking Day. So many children came in dressed up and it really added to the day. Thanks for all your support.

 

Even Mr Young got into the role of a Viking warrior!

 

We have finished writing our versions of Beowulf and some of the writing has been fantastic. The children have also been pulling apart the longer version of Beowulf in our class reading and are really starting to improve their comprehension skills. 

 

In Maths the children have been working hard developing their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills in addition and subtraction. On Friday we went into the computing suite and used a spreadsheet to develop our understanding of multiples.

 

Other highlights have been completing our moving vehicles in D&T (photos to come soon), starting our computing topic of spreadsheets and carrying out research in our RE lessons about Hinduism. 

 

Remember it's assessment week next week so plenty of rest. I am also looking forward to meeting your parents at partnership meetings next week. I have lots of lovely things to tell them about you all so don't worry. indecision

Another busy busy week in class 8. In English we have immersed ourselves in the story of Beowulf and written some super character descriptions. We have also written an alternative ending so we have lots of ideas for our stories next week. Also ask your children about SPAG.com

 

Year five had a wonderful time Monday afternoon for their Prince William award (photos to come soon) and year six worked hard with Mrs Fagence getting songs ready for the Harvest assembly. Many thanks for your donations.

 

Remember next week is Talk and Share on Tuesday and the start of the book fair in school. Please come and treat your child to a super book. The more we raise, the more free books we get for the school. Reading is a huge whole school focus this year so please help us.

 

Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing you for Talk and Share if you can make it.

What a busy week!

Class 8 have had such a busy week and Mr Young has finally worked out how to put information onto the website! Yippee!

 

In Maths we have been working hard on place value with our focus on negative numbers and Roman Numerals.

 

 

In English we had such a fun start to the week by going into the woods and seeing clothes ripped, blood everywhere and food inside a den. This raised lots of questions and it gave us clues about our new writing topic! By the end of this week we would have written our own Kenning poems for our class poetry book that everyone can read and enjoy.

 

 

 

In Reading we have started the text "Beowulf" and explored lots of vocabulary. Ask your children about double meaning words. We have also asked lots of questions so we can answer some tricky questions next week.

 

 

Other highlights include a letter to Theresa May about plastic pollution and making progress in our DT lessons. We are well on the way to making our moving car. Photos will follow soon!

 

Have a great weekend Class 8.
