Welcome to Class 8 - Year 3/4

Class News

Welcome to our webpage for Class 8!

We hope you find our page very informative, interesting and enjoyable.

In class 8 we aim to be the best class in school.

Both indoor and outdoor P.E. kits need to be in school at all times as we aim to teach P.E. twice a week. We do indoor P.E on Tuesdays.

We are currently taking the children for swimming lessons on a Wednesday afternoon.

Our 'Author of the Term' is Michael Morpurgo and our class book is 'Alone on a Wide Wide Sea'

Thank you for your continued support.

We are aiming to win the Reading Awards trophy this term, therefore it would be great if you could read with your child five times a week to increase our chances of winning.

Spellings homework will be given out each Monday and will be tested on Fridays.

European Languages Day.

Tuesday 26th September is the European Languages Day. We will be celebrating this across the school and learning all about the language and culture of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany. On this day we encourage your children to wear the colours of any of these countries.


Children should be able to complete all homework independently as it is often simply a recap of topics covered in school. If your child is genuinly finding the homework difficult don't hesitate to inform their teacher before the homework is due.

Meet the Teacher

A big thank you to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher' this week. For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon is attached.

Reading Plus Online

New reading plus online logins were given out last week. Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Swimming runs weekly on Wednesdays. The instructors would like us to remind you that hair must be tied up, no jewellery is allowed and goggles are only allowed with permission. The children always enjoy their swimming lessons and are looking forward to making progress.


Look at all the fun we had at Fox Howl last year. This year we are looking forward to visiting Burwardsley.
