Bore da dosbarth 8!
You have completed such brilliant work this week, well done! Let's keep it up today! :-)
Task 1 - I would like you measure the age of a tree.
Measure me, treasure me fun maths activity
This one is a classic that can be done outside or recreated at home. Find the approximate age of a tree using just a tape measure or piece of string!
Children measure the distance around the trunk roughly one metre from the ground. As every 2.5cm of girth correlates to around one year’s growth, they can then work out the age of the tree.
For example, a tree with a girth of 100 cm will be roughly 40 years old (100 ÷ 2.5 = 40).
If you can’t get outside, get someone to stand still and recreate trees themselves to measure (they’ll have loads of fun pretending their arms are branches!)
Task 2 - I would like you to really think hard about what you love about yourself...
You can either print out the template below and record your thoughts on that, or create your own 'What I love about me' poster. Please tweet your work/ photos using @BryncethinPS8 . There's so much to love about yourself!
Have an awesome Thursday :-)
Good morning Class 8!

Have fun and good luck!

Wednesday 6th May
Bore da dosbarth 8!
After researching schools around the world, we noticed that many of the schools look so different. Each day spent in each school is carried out differently, and not every school is fortunate to have certain resources such as tables and chairs, computers/ technology, or even walls!
Today I want you to think about an occasion that we celebrate here in our school in South Wales. I would like you to illustrate a celebration that you enjoy taking part in, and include some written information with it so that if someone from another country was to look at your work, they would learn something new about our school/country celebrations in Wales.
I have shared some information with you about other celebrations that go on in other countries:
The end of gymnasium (or high school) in Denmark is seen as a considerable accomplishment and is celebrated. After a month of final exams, Danish students receive a special graduation cap, which is placed upon their heads by their parents upon their last examination, and which many sport all month long. Each school holds a formal graduation ceremony, but it is right after the ceremony that the real fun begins. Students pile onto open-top trucks to tour around town, stopping for a short time at each student’s house along the way. Here, family and friends gather to welcome the graduates with drinks, food and a toast before they hustle back aboard their rides to continue the parade.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zkkr7nb visit this page to read about other celebrations that happen in other schools around the world.
Your other task for today is to practise spelling the following words by rainbow writing them. Either write each letter or word in a different colour. You could even write them in the shape of a rainbow!
Please tweet your tasks using @BryncethinPS8
Have a good day! :)
Please click on the link above to complete the survey. :-) Thank you!

Take a look at these activities for you today.
Choose a book, it could be your school reading book. Can you find all these words in the book?
You could create your own for a member of your family to try.
Let's learn about sundials.
The Sundial is the oldest device known for measuring time. Sundials dating back over 4,000 years ago have been found by archaeologists at excavation sites in Egypt. This clock measures time by measuring changes in the length and the direction of shadows cast by the Sun. The numbered markings show what time of the day it is when the shadow of a pointer called a gnomon falls on the sundial’s face. As the Earth moves around the Sun, the shadow moves across the sundial. You will need to go outside three different times during the day (morning, noon, and later afternoon) to check for changes in the shadows. As the Sun rises in the east and moves across the sky to set in the west, the early morning shadows are long and fall to the west. At noon, the Sun is directly overhead and the shadows are the shortest. In the late afternoon, the shadows are long and fall to the east.
Let's make a sundial.
Watch this video and have a go at making your very own sundial.
If you don't have a paper plate then you could use card from a cereal box cut into a circle.
Have fun in the sun!
