Hello class 8,

Your SPELLING SHED word lists for this week are now available on your individual portals. You can access spelling shed via this link: https://play.spellingshed.com/#/login

OR by typing Spelling Shed in to Google. (Your Login details are stuck in your homework diaries)

When you log in, you will need to practice the spellings at least 7 times. After this, you will then be given automatic access to the games!

Spellings will be revisited on Friday 16th November, 2018.

I look forward to following your progress on the app!

Mrs Burkill 🙂

This week we have been working on a NEW type of creature! The scientists at the Museum of London have been thinking about how they can reintroduce dinosaurs to our planet. They have dinosaur DNA but this will need to be merged with an existing animal. They have tasked us with finding the most appropriate animal. We have to send our new hybrid reports off to London for the scientists to look at.



Over the weekend we would like you to gather some facts about your TWO chosen creatures. These will then be used within your report.

Remember you have FOUR SUBHEADINGS.

  • Appearance (What your beast will look like?)
  • Diet (What you beast will eat?)
  • Habitat (Where your beast can be found?)
  • Fun Facts (Any interesting facts about your creature)


How many facts can you find about your chosen animals?

We look forward to you teaching us something new on Monday!




Mrs Burkill


Here are some of our fantastic HYBRIDS in the making…

I was so impressed with everyone’s homework over the holidays! Everyone has a had a go at something, whether it has been blogging, spelling shed or the picture comprehension! Well done 👍🏻

I was particularly impressed with these pieces that came in this morning! There were some extra (optional) tasks with the picture comprehension homework, one being to create a new theme park based around Dinosaurs… you have blown me away!

Take a look…

Yesterday, class 7 & 8 joined forces and we all ventured out to prepare for our Stone Age fashion show.

We know the Stone Age people were hunter gatherers and were incredibly resourceful. So, we wanted to gather some resources of our own and re invent Stone Age fashion! So here is it’s- A/W collection 2018

What did you enjoy about the afternoon? What would you do differently?

Should Animals Be Treated The Same As Humans?

By 6

In our community circles this week, we were posed with the question: Should animals be treated the same as humans?

We spent the whole 20 minutes of the assembly stood up in just a small amount of space. This was so we could think about animals that may be kept in these circumstances.

How did you feel about being treated this way?

Do you think animals should have the same rights as humans?

What are your reasons?

WOW! We have gathered some amazing insight and vocabulary for our Literacy topic from our trip today! We were all excited on seeing the cave, as I don’t think we were expecting it be so big! We were able to go deep inside the cave and think about what we could see, what we could hear, what we could smell and we could feel. This will really help us when we write our cave description later in the week.

What can you remember about the trip? Can you link it to any of your senses, ready for Literacy?
