Welcome to Godrevy Class.

This half-term we will be learning about the Anglo Saxons in the middle ages (410 - 1066 AD).  We will be studying the impact of the Anglo Saxons on Great Britain and we will learn about how they lived focussing on food, culture, trade, religion and settlers. The children will also focus on what life was like for Anglo Saxons and study significant characters of the middle ages. This topic will be cross curricular and have links to Geography, History, English, Computing and Art / Design Technology.

 

If you have any Anglo Saxon memorabilia that you would like us to share in class, please send it in via the office. Please see our planning for more information about our topic. 

 

 

In science, we will be learning about Sound for Autumn term. This is a great topic that gives us the opportunity to do lots of investigating and thinking scientifically. 

 

 

In RE, our focus for world religion will be Hinduism and we will continue to learn more about their beliefs, rituals and celebrations. Alongside this, the children will be have weekly lessons on Christianity and spirituality sessions alongside daily collective worship.

 

If you have any questions,  please catch Mrs Quick at the end of the day or pop a note in your child's reading record.

Please keep your eye on our class page for updates and photos showing what we have been up to!

 
 
 
Weekly events in Godrevy:

PE will take place on Thursday afternoon and we will be teaching the children all about athletics this half term. We would like PE kits in school all half term because we sometimes do extra PE sessions during the week.

 

Homework will be initially be based on the current theme, 'Anglo Saxons'. Attached to this page is the Chilli Challenge sheet based on the topic. Please encourage your children to take part in this creative homework. The children will receive certificates for their contribution and their work will be displayed on our celebration wall in lower key stage 2. Please ensure your child does a minimum of 10 points on the homework grid.

Daily reading and times tables practise on TT Rockstars are still very important and the children’s reading records will be checked daily to make sure that they are reading regularly. In addition, please practise the year 3/4 spellings with your child as often as possible.
