Class Eight

Teacher: Miss White

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Gibson, Mrs Boyd and Miss McGuire

 

 

Summer One

In English we will be reading the story 'The Smeds and The Smoos'. Pupils will be describing characters, story sequencing and participating in weekly VIPER sessions. Pupils will also be focusing on SPAG revision tasks. We will also be gathering information, planning and taking part in a debate. Pupils will be working together to try and convince their teachers to join The Smeds or The Smoo's.  

 

Mathematics

The Rubies will be learning about multiplication and division, fractions, position and direction, place value, money and time.

The Diamonds will be learning about length and height, position and direction,  mass, capacity and temperature and time.

The Emeralds will be learning about decimals, money, statistics, time, position and direction and shape.

 

In Science, we will be learning about plants. Pupils will identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees. We will also be identifying and describing the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees. 

 

In Geography, our topic is 'Let's Set Sail to Africa'. For the first part of Summer term pupils will be learning and focusing on the area of Crosby. We will be creating and using simple maps of Crosby and labelling the human and physical features. We will be identifying and naming familiar places, asking and answering geographical questions and becoming aware of local changes which are happening in Crosby and our local area. 

 

In Computing, pupils will develop their understanding of the various aspects of using a computer to create and manipulate text. They will become more familiar with using a keyboard and mouse to enter and remove text. Learners will also consider how to change the look of their text, and will be able to justify their reasoning in making these changes. Finally, learners will consider the differences between using a computer to create text, and writing text on paper. 

 

Every Tuesday, we will have P.E. Please make sure you send your child's P.E kit into school. 

Every Thursday, we will be attending swimming sessions at The Meadows. Please send your child into school with a swimming kit which consists of swimming trunks/swimming costume, a towel and a  swimming cap which can be purchased at The School office for £1.20. 

 

Homework:

Children will be sent home with spellings to learn each week, could you please find the time to practice with the children. 

 

At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.

Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you to take an active part in all aspects of homework. and where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/ School Reading Record Book)

The routines of reading everyday, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child’s established home routine. Short, sharp period of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.

Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.

Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
