Class 8 2016 – 2017

Welcome to our Summer Term virtual reality classroom! Our question this term is ‘How is virtual reality becoming the new reality?’

Our project launch was a visit from Tension VR who provided us all with virtual reality goggles and took us on a tour of the world, Mars, the International Space station and inside the stomach!!!

We had a fabulous time and can’t wait for the next experience.C9w0DroXcAE1BgM C-z6v8jXsAAUzNI

Super Start to 2017.

Class 8 have come back this year with excellent attitudes and they all should be very proud of themselves. We have started to look into our project this term through our art and the children have inspired Mr Morris and myself with the creative thinking. Keep watching this space for continued updates and pictures of what the children are getting up to.

Welcome to the Class 8 blog

We are an amazing class of Year 4 children who love to learn and share ideas with everyone. Please check our page regularly to see what we are up to!

16/9/15 – Important Greeks

Today we split into groups to decide who was the most important Ancient Greek person. We had to think about what they did, why they were important and what impact they had on our lives.

15/9/15 What is Democracy?

In PSHE this week we are thinking about what democracy means. We realise that we are lucky to live in a country where we can say what we believe and vote for what we want. Watch this video to find out what democracy is!

 

11/9/15 Big Write

It was the first big write of the year today and you didn’t disappoint! Class 8 were asked to write a recount of the Greek day we had one Tuesday. They all tried hard to remember the features that they said should be in a recount. We had use of paragraphs, sentence openers, conjunctions and similes. Well done!

9/9/15 What is Light?

We kicked off our science this week with a SOLE lesson. This is where the children take the lead and investigate the question given to them in what ever way they choose. They had an hour to answer the question and the presentations at the end were amazing! Lotsof budding scientists in Class 8 this year.

Today we found out a little bit about Greece with 3 fantastic activities to take part in. Firstly we designed and created our own Ancient Greek vases. Next we trained to be Greek soldiers and found out a bit about life in Ancient Greece. Finally we made some tasty Baklava and Greek yoghurt.
