Godrevy

Mrs M Quick

Class Teacher

Welcome to Godrevy Class.

This half-term we will be learning about the World War 2.  We will be studying the impact of the war and how the war started. The children will focus on what life was like as an evacuee and study significant characters of the war such as Winston Churchill, Anne Frank and many others. If you have any World War 2 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. 

This topic will be cross curricular and have links to Geography, History, English, Computing and Art / Design Technology.

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

If you have any questions, 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.

The children will be taught art by Mrs Stevens on a Friday afternoon. If you have any old aprons for the children, please send them into Godrevy class.

 

 

Homework will be initially be based on the current theme, 'World War 2'. 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.
