Math Year 8

Welcome to Year 8

Term Three

Dear Guardians and Students,

On behalf on Ms. Gloria and myself, we welcome you to Term Three Year 8 Mathematics class for the 2017-2018 academic year. Together, with our hard work and commitment to provide a high quality learning environment, we are looking forward to a great year together.

The Year 8 students are following the Cambridge Curriculum for Mathematics, focusing on a number of skills that are distributed through term 1, term 2 and term 3. Throughout these terms, students will be given many opportunities to demonstrate their understanding of the skills delivered. For more details about the grading structure of term 2, please open and download the file below. Since Term 1, we have also included Google Classroom which is an excellent resource for revision. Thank you to Ms. Gloria for always keeping it updated.

Success in our class is based on many factors and the two most important are the student's attendance as well as the understanding of the skills delivered. Students are encouraged to actively participate during class and follow up with homework at home. If unsure, please make it your duty to ask questions during or after class as we all apply the open door policy.

Finally, kindly note that the best way to stay informed in our maths classes is to check our Year 8 Maths page (this page)which is updated on a weekly basis. For further questions or, if you would like to make an appointment with your son's/daughter's teacher, please contact the Secondary School secretary to set a date.

Thank you and best wishes,

Ms. Gloria and Mr. John

Parent's Evening 15 April 2018

We had our final parent's day. The new procedure of appointments was implemented. Parents had to now sign up and make an appointment with the teachers. It was wonderful to see so many parents caring about their children. This took place from 7:00am till 4:00pm.

We also appreciate those parents who come on a regular basis to express support to the school. As we know, not all parents are able to attend, but we do know that we have all the parents support. So a BIG THANK YOU!

This term is shorter than term 1 and 2. However, we still have much to do. Hang in there because we also know that you are all survivors and overcomers. We encourage you to work hard and smart and remain focused on YOUR success in Year 8.

Assessments

Our next assessment on Probability will be written on Thursday, 26 April 2018.

The end-of-unit exercises , homework and Google Classroom are essential resources for revision.

Battle of the Books!

This is an exciting event held in the schools library wherein teams of students, ranging form year 4 - 12, test their detailed knowledge of selected books. Teams face-off each other as they compete to win the Ultimate Battle Title. This is an annual event and is organised by the schools librarians and BoB committee. This is a fun and engaging way for students and teachers to get excited about reading while also building confidence and teamwork skills.

Some Good Computer and Online Advice!


  • Practice good password management. ...
  • Never leave your devices unattended.
  • Always be careful when clicking on attachments or links in email.
  • Be conscientious of what you plug in to your computer. Malware can be spread through infected flash drives, external hard drives, and even smartphones.
  • Watch what you’re sharing on social networks. Criminals can befriend you and easily gain access to a shocking amount of information—where you go to school, where you work, when you’re on vacation—that could help them gain access to more valuable data.
