Welcome to Class 8!
Class teacher: Miss Highfield
Teaching Assistants: Miss Robinson
We are so excited to be beginning the summer term where we will be stepping back in time to Ancient Rome as part of our topic the Romans. As part of our Roman work Commando Joe has set Year 3 a Roman mission which we can’t wait to accomplish. Also we will be completing a STEAM project where we will be using the 3D printer to make Roman book shelf divides.
In English, we will be exploring lots of different writing genres linked to the Romans and we will be studying the text Romulus and Remus. Spelling has been a big focus for Class 8 across this school year and it will continue to be as we move into the summer term. We use Spelling Shed to help us with our spelling and we are on a mission to regularly earn the school Spelling shed trophy in celebration worship.
As part of our topic based work we will also be learning about how the Romans invaded Britain and we will be learning all about the Roman Empire. In DT we are going to be using clay to make Roman pots.
Class 8 have been working extremely hard to learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables across the school year. This term we are going to begin to learn our 6 times table in preparation for Year 4 and we plan on using times table rock stars to help us to do that. Also in maths some of the things we will be learning about include fractions of amounts along with acute and obtuse angles. We will be using lots of practical equipment along with outdoor space as the weather improves to support us with our learning.
