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.
Class 8’s PE is on a Thursday.
Please make sure that your child has a PE kit in school at all times. It will need to contain a pair of shorts/leggings/trousers and a t-shirt. Please make sure all items are named. PE will go home every term to be washed.
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!
Snack is £1 a week to be paid on Monday or you can pay for the half term. If you choose to bring in a snack from home then it must be either fresh or dried fruit e.g. an apple, grapes or raisins etc.
Children are allowed to bring in a small bottle of water for use in class. Only Water is allowed in the classroom.
The children will be given half-termly homework. During that half-term they need to practice their spellings, times tables and choose one task to complete from their homework sheet.
Reading books and Guided group reading
Children will read their reading book in class in week 1 and then the following week they do Guided group reading. Their reading books will be coming home in their book bags. Please feel free to encourage your child to read with you whenever possible.
In KS2 we use Dojo points 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.

Our Topic this Term will be 'Life on Earth'.
We will be focusing more on Plants and animals from around the world. We will be calling on our research skills to gather data and information on different plants and animals, along with the different habitats found around the world that suit the different animals.
We will be planting our own seeds in class and investigating different flowers ad what they need in order to live along with the life cycle of a plant and how plants/ flowers disperse.
Maybe you could carry out your own investigations at home and report back to us with your findings .
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.
