Class 8- Dosbarth 8
Summer Term- Tymor yr Haf
This term, our main topic is 'Y Byd Dwr' (Waterworld)and much of our class work will be based on this topic. Prior to Easter, the children spent time thinking about what they would like to learn in our 'Y Byd Dwr' topic and we hope to complete many of the activities and ideas they have come up with during the course of the term e.g looking at the water cycle, looking at different sea creatures and their habitats, creating art work linked to water.
Our work in other subjects will also be linked to this topic. In Science we will be looking at 'Materials' and their uses, in English we will once again be looking at poetry in the form of limericks aswell as Fantasy stories and Information books. We will be continuing with our handwriting and Guided Reading sessions as well as our spelling group work on a Monday.
Our Art and Design and Technology work will focus on activities from our Science and topic work.
In P.E. the children will be participating in cross country lessons, athletics and short tennis. Please ensure PE kits are in school everyday during the summer term.
This term the children will continue to bring a school scheme reading book home to practice and consolidate their skills whilst reading to a parent helper, older brother or sister etc. Please ensure that your child’s reading record card is signed on a weekly basis.
