Dates for your Diary
7.9.20 In-service Day
8.9.20 First day back to school
Welcome to class 8!
What a strange time we have had recently! The world is a different place than a few months ago, and at school we know that you may have some worries and anxieties about returning full time. But don't worry! We will do our very best to make the transition as simple and smooth as possible! We are all in this together and we need to learn on and support one another.
In class 8 we will be working very hard throughout the year to consolidate all of our previous learning, push ourselves to reach our goals and have lots of fun learning new things! Each morning we will start with the register and 'Active in 5', this will be followed by reading/spellings/SPAG/handwriting tasks. Our first lesson will usually be English followed by maths after break time. Afternoons will begin with times table practice then topic lessons.
Our days will be jam-packed but full of opportunities for learning, reflecting and developing our lovely squishy brains!
