Curriculum

English

This year the students will be focussing on some life changing Novels. Each Novel has been carefully chosen to build character to allow students to be uplifted and to provide literature that is uplifting. As they study each Novel for a Term, it is vital to Euka that those Novels provide great building blocks in the students own life. The Grade 8 program allows them to respond to what they are reading, in practical ways. They will show their understanding through comprehension activities, and reflect on the plot, characters and themes through creative projects like making posters, theme songs, T-shirts with character profiles and many more engaging activities.

Mathematics

Grade 8 maths is a hands-on continuation of maths principles the students have discovered in the younger grades. The focus is on presenting each topic in a relevant, enjoyable and meaningful way. With the addition of the multi-grade, online program, Mathletics, students can not only work on the Grade 8 program but extend themselves or catch up on any maths aspects they need revision on. Maths is best taught as an exciting opportunity to learn more about our world.

Science

Our Grade 8 program features experiments, individual research projects and many new ways to use the knowledge gained during lessons. We cover the Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Earth and Space Sciences and Physical Sciences, throughout the year; topics such as Cells, Energy transfer and Chemistry Compounds. By Grade 8 they are busy developing their own experiments and methods of recording. Euka makes Science come to life!
