Welcome to Godrevy.

Spring topic -
Our new spring topic is 'Under our Feet'. Exploring our amazing Earth; focusing on rocks, soils, earthquakes and volcanoes.
 
We will be investigating the famous eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the Italian village of Pompeii in 79 AD. The children will be researching what life was like in the Roman times. They will learn about the architecture of buildings, food and drink, trading and how the Romans debated as a politician and went to see people perform poetry, sing and put on plays in the amphitheatre. 
 
This topic will be cross curricular and have links to Geography, History, English, Computing and Art / Design Technology.
 
Weekly events in Godrevy:

PE will take place on Wednesday afternoon and Mr Kay will be teaching the children all about football 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, 'Under our Feet'. 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.

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.

Each week the children will be encouraged to complete a task at home that involves some research, writing or something creative about their current topic. Please check your grid or ask for details if you are unsure about the homework.

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