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.

Swimming (Wednesday 15th November)

Just a reminder that for next week's swimming lesson the children will need an extra pair of clothes (pyjamas or old clothes will be perfect). 

Panto in School

On our first day back in school we will be enjoying a visit from a Pantomime company who will put on a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. We are very much looking forward to this. What a fun way to start our new term!

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.

Internet Safety Week

This week was internet safety week 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.

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