Class 8


Welcome to Class 8’s Page!

In our Literacy lessons we have debated the use of mobile phones in school as well as writing different genres, like Explanations about deforestation and a number of stories, including a mystery!


In Numeracy we have looked closely at fractions (where we used Pokemon to help us!), negative numbers, percentages and area and perimeter.


In our P.E. lessons we have created our own dance to Uptown Funk and slow motion scenes to the Space Odyssey Theme tune!


We have studied many concepts in Science also, including the human organs, the human circulatory system, solids, liquids and gases, and we investigated whether height affects jumping distance.


So far this year in our Foundation subjects, we have learned through the topics of ’Come Dine With Me’, ‘Celebrations’ and ‘Explorers’, though we’ll be looking at ‘The World of Work’ in the Spring Term, too.  We have enjoyed learning through our different topics and have had the opportunities to recreate some CDWM scenes, compared the different festivals of some religions and recently have looked at the characteristics of people we’d like to first colonise Mars!
