About Our Activities in Class 8
Language and Topic
This term they will be learning all about pirates. Following our trip to Talacre Beach, children have asked some big questions to plan our topic. They will be finding out about different pirates from the past, what their ships were like and what it was like to be a pirate. We are working towards an exciting pirate-themed day towards the end of term. Get your pirate costumes ready- yo ho ho!
Reading is not only an important skill to have, but you can have lots of fun doing it too! Please read with your child as much as possible, remembering to fill in their reading diaries. You can enhance your child’s experience using apps such as ‘Hairy Letters/Phonics and ‘Teach your Monster to Read’. Children need their book bags in school every day please.
Class 8 really enjoy doing maths. Through Inspire Maths children are challenged and encouraged to ‘master’ different approaches. They use lots of equipment in order to consolidate their understanding of different elements of mathematics. Currently, Class 8 are looking at multiplication and division. Going through this at home with children and using apps such as ‘Hit the Button’ is helpful.
Please make sure your child has their kit in school at all times as we will be practicing for Sport's Day whenever the weather is dry.
