Class 8

Welcome to Class 8’s website page.

We are in a bubble with Class 9 and work with the adults in both classes. 

Class 8 teacher is Miss Lancaster and Class 9 teachers are Mrs Steadman and Mr Dixon.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Cavnor, Mrs Sixsmith, Mrs Connell, Mrs Zbik and Mrs Allsop.

 

Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday so please remember to have your trainers at school on these days.

 

Every Friday we have a Spelling Battle with another class.  Your spellings are put on Spelling Shed on a Friday evening ready for the next week.  Please practise these as often as possible.

 

Homework will be set on a Friday and will be posted on your home Seesaw account.  This is usually to be completed by the Friday of the following week.  Please also make sure you read at home too – at least 3x per week.  We have lots of lovely reading books in our classroom and you can change your book as soon as you have finished it.  We also love reading on EPIC.  You have log in details for EPIC, IXL and  TT Rockstar.  Use all of these APPS as often as possible!!

 

Our Geography topic this half term is Mexico.  We will be learning about the people of Mexico and their culture as well as the geography of the country.  We will be doing some food technology linked with Mexico.

We are doing a Science project about the Properties of Materials.  Look on facebook to see the investigations we have carried out.

In RE we are learning about Sikhism this half term.
