About Our Activities in Class 8


Language and Topic

This term they will be learning all about mini beasts. Children will be looking at different types of insects including what they look like and where they live. In order to help children find out more about mini beasts, they are using the book 'Superworm' to enhance learning. There will be lots of exciting activities in our learning zones to complete. Children will be looking at the differences between fiction and non-fiction books in language. They will be creating fact files describing the insects they are researching using the internet and non-fiction books.



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.


Mastering Maths

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 mental addition and subtraction. Going through this at home with children and using apps such as ‘Hit the Button’ is helpful.



Our PE day is currently a Tuesday, please make sure children have full kit in with them on this day. Children will need kit appropriate for outside as well as inside as sessions will take place on the yard weather permitting until October half term.
