Croeso i Dosbarth 8
Welcome to Class 8
Thank you for visiting Class 8's web page! Here you'll find some information about our class.
Due to the current circumstances we are continuing with PE in school (weather permitting). However we are not requiring the children to bring in any PE kit, as a way of limiting the amount the things being brought to and from home and school.
We have also been doing 15 minutes of daily fitness activities covering a range of exercises to improve cardio fitness, flexibility, strength, balance and more. Ask your child for a demo and start your fitness journey with them!
Again as a result of the current situation we are not able to provide any snack options for the children, so we ask that you provide your child with a healthy snack for their break time even if they are have school dinners as it is not being provided for them at snack time.
Children are allowed to bring in a small bottle of water for use in school. Only Water is allowed as a healthy option.
The children will be given weekly homework which can be found on the class dojo site/app. The children can sign into their account using the QR Codes provided and access the activities to complete online. Therefore there is no need to bring any paper based homework into school. If the children do complete homework on paper, then they can take a picture of the work and again post it online using Class Dojo. The children will receive dojo points for any work they complete.
Reading books and Guided group reading
Children will continue to read their reading book in class in week 1 and then the following week they do Guided group reading. Their reading books will not be able to be sent home due to the circumstances unfortunately. However you can still listen to your children read daily by accessing the Oxford tree website and using the codes given below.
Please feel free to encourage your child to read with you whenever possible.

In KS2 we use Dojo points as rewards and at the end of the week the dojo point champion is awarded a certificate. We also have a helpwr Heddiw certificate for children who are speaking Welsh and a VIP who is chosen at the end of the week. The VIP is able to wear their own clothes the following week.

Our topic is 'The Celts and the Romans'.
Autumn 2 is looking more at Life as a Roman Soldier. We will be exploring their food, homes, Roman baths, Garden designs, Clothing and the many things that the Romans created that we still use to this present day.
Please feel free to chat to your children about what they have been learning about and if you know more information or expertise on this topic feel free to share it with them so they can pass it on and share it with the rest of us in class 8.
