Croeso i Ddosbarth 8 - Welcome to Class 8
For our first Summer Term topic, we will be looking at the topic 'Extreme Earth'! The children will have the opportunity to learn about different natural disasters around the world including Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We will also be completing work on New Zealand and comparing this country to Wales.
After May half term, our topic will change to 'Under the Sea'! Children will research different sea creatures and their habitats and also explore the properties of different materials and the water cycle.
Keep an eye on the website throughout the term for pictures and information about what we have been up to!
Please note, due to current school arrangements, all homework will be completed online. We politely ask that no work is to be brought in to school; completed tasks / photographs of work are to be submitted via Google Classroom/Seesaw and children will have the opportunity to share with their peers.
Children will be provided with a range of tasks to complete during the half term. Information about these tasks will be shared with the children in the next couple of weeks and uploaded for your information on Google Classroom/Seesaw.
In the Summer term, the children are now beginning the transition to Year 4, therefore we ask that homework is completed and uploaded to Google Classroom where possible as Seesaw is not used in Year 4 upwards in school.
Children will be provided with a weekly Spelling test and Reading book. Both should be returned on a Monday.
PE Sessions/Kit/Forest School
Children in Year 3 will take part in orienteering and netball sessions during this half term.
Year 3 P.E. sessions will take place on Tuesday and Friday.
On your child’s P.E. day, we are asking that they come to school in their kit. Due to the colder weather, children are invited to wear tracksuits along with their Mountain Lane PE t-shirt as all PE sessions will take place outside.
We are also hoping to visit the forest area during the term and we will communicate with you when such sessions are due to take place, to ensure that the pupils come to school prepared, in the appropriate attire.
