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!

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!
ENJOY and GOOD LUCK!
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…
Well done during Assessment Week Year 3. Here is a fun little photo challenge for you to have a go at during the holidays!
We would love to see the pictures you take on the blog! There is no need to print photos and bring them in. We know it’s an ‘October Challenge’ but please just take the photos when you like.🙂
Happy half term!
Happy October/ November!

It definitely feels like Autumn today, even though in Britain, the Autumn equinox officially started on the 23rd September, I think Autumn is beginning to raise her head a little higher! 🍁🍂 Here are some of the reasons I lLOVE Autumn 🧡

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?
As the Summer holidays draw to a close, I’d love to know what you have been up to!
Have you been enjoying the sun? Have you made tons of memories? Have you explored anything new?
I look forward to seeing you all bright and early next week to start a fantastic new school year!
What are you looking forward to most?
