Celebration Assembly Winner
Last week was a busy week for a number of reasons but we managed to have fun all the same. The class particularly enjoyed learning how to play basketball. The children were extremely enthusiastic and are looking forward to taking part in the basketball festival next week - details will follow this week.
The focus for celebration assembly was enthusiasm. The certificate went to Charlie for his super enthusiastic approach to learning basketball skills. Well done Charlie!

Welcome to Class 8!
What a fantastic start to the new academic year it has been. All the members of class 8 are proving to be hard-working and keen to develop their skills in all areas of the curriculum.
This week in our project Traders and Raiders, we have been researching Saxon sore forts which were built on the east coast to protect from invaders. We discovered that catapults were used as a defence to stop boats landing on shore.
Next week we are researching the life on an Anglo-Saxon, including farming,home-life, food and crime and punishment.
In maths we have been counting in thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. We have also been comparing and ordering numbers. In addition we are developing our data skills in drawing and reading picture and bar graphs.
Every week we have a timetable test and we all have a particular times table we are learning.
In English, we are developing writing skills to enable us to write powerful and interesting descriptions.
