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.

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.

Miss Axon & Mrs Farrell

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 was European Languages Day. We celebrated this across the school and learned all about the language, culture and cuisine of three European Countries: France, Spain and Germany.

Burwardsley Residential

Years 3 and 4 visited Burwardsley at the start of the term to consolidate their learning on the Stone Age. Here we entered a roundhouse, made our own woven fences, dug for artefacts like archeologists, and made our very own clay coil pots in the Stone Age fashion. We also went on a habitat walk up Willow Hill where we found signs of badgers, foxes, moles, rabbits and squirrels. The children built their own dens and enjoyed hot chocolate around the bonfire in the evening. A jam-packed fun-filled and educational visit was had by all.

Internet Safety Week

Internet Safety Week was the week of the 5th February and during our Poetry Recital we touched upon living with technology at home and how to keep safe online. Below is a powerpoint with key information on internet safety. We hope you find this useful.

Jack and the Beanstalk

What better way to start our second half term than with an energetic, modern pantomime show.  The children (and the teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the interactive performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. As well as being entertained, we were inspired and children across the school are writing their very own version of the tale. Here are some photos from the wonderful morning. See if you can spot two of our teachers putting on a show with the performers...

C'est fantastique!

In Years 3 and 4 we have been really enjoying our French lessons. We have been learning to say the colours, the members of your family, and the shops you might see in a town, in French. Here is some of our fantastic French work.


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.


Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.

Reading Plus Online

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.
