Class 8 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Class 8!
A Message from Miss D'Anzi
Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely and relaxing christmas. As we enter 2020, I hope chilren will be coming back to school refreshed and ready to learn. We will also be learning about the topic of World war two, which I am sure they will really enjoy!
In class 8 we are reading:
Our Story Time Book: Fireweed by Jill Paton Walsh
Our English Hook: The Lion and the Unicorn by Shirley Hughes
Our Topic for this half term:
World War Two
History: World War II
Art and Design: Still Life and WWII art
PE: Swimming and WWII Dance
RE: Is it better to express your beliefs in art and architecture or in charity and generosity?
Science: Changing Circuits
PSHE: Too much selfie isn't healthy
PE: Swimming kit will be needed on a Wednesday for year 5 (One-piece swimming costume for girls, or swimming shorts above the knee for boys). If your child requires goggles, you will need to provide a note confirming this for the swimming teachers
Indoor kit will be needed on Monday for WWII Dance (School Yellow PE top, black shorts, pumps) Football tops will not be allowed.
Please note PE kit can be left in school for the half term. It is important that children have their PE kit ready for lessons, as children who do not have kit in school will lose golden time.
Spelling: Children will be set spellings on a Thursday to be tested the following Thursday.
English and Maths: Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday.
Reading: Reading books must be brought into school every day and will be checked every Thursday. Please listen to your child read at home and make comments in their home/school diary.
For more detailed information on what we will be doing this half term please take a look at our class newsletter.
