Class 8



Welcome to the Class 8 class page. Please check here for regular updates and news from our class. We'll be putting lots of news and information on here in the next few weeks and months. Your teacher is Mr Hempsall and Mrs Dunbar is also in the classroom.



Our PE session will be Wednesday morning, plus one other day (which we will let you know as soon as we do). Your child may come to school on PE days already changed into their kit due to the current COVID restrictions, but please could they still wear their jumper. 



Because many of us haven't been in school for quite a while this term is going to include a lot of work on PSHE, managing feelings and really helping us to settle in now that we are back. In RE we are learning about Christianity, signs, symbols and what it means to be a Christian. We are going back to basics with French, remembering how to say hello and goodbye and lots of other useful vocabulary. 


We have started our maths journey revisiting place value, remembering what we did in Year 3 and then moving on to working with 1000s. In English we are studying the animation 'The Lighthouse' to help us write an explanation text all about lighthouses. 





This term we are sending out homework differently. We are avoiding sending paper home due to current restrictions so we are using Google Classroom. 


If you click on it will take you to the correct place. Then use the email address and password you should hopefully have received with last year's report and see how you get on! We do understand this is a bit of an experiment so don't worry if it takes a while to get the hang of things.
