Welcome to Morvah!
Children in Morvah class are in their final year at St Uny Academy. They have already proven to be a great asset to the school, and with the addition of our new Head Boy and Head Girl, we have no doubt that they will be superb role models to the rest of our children.
Our autumn term topic, Sandbags and Sirens, is going to focus on the history of WWII. Children are going to explore the causes and consequences of WWII, and will be attempting to understand what it would have been like for a child at this time. We are looking forward to using local attractions to view some artifacts from Britain during the time of the Blitz and will use these experiences to enhance our curriculum learning.
In English, we will be writing a variety of fictional texts based on our WWII themed topic. Our term will begin with character/setting descriptions and will challenge the children to consider the similarities and differences between WWII Britain and the modern day. Children will then be challenged further when they develop letters from evacuees, which will require them to write from a perspective other than their own. The children will also have the opportunity to write some non-fiction pieces related to their science topic - evolution and inheritance.
Our science and RE topics will be closely linked this term, with the children focusing on evolution and inheritance and whether these areas of science conflict with or complement our knowledge of Christianity. The children will be able to make use of our outdoor spaces to enhance their science learning and will use this to debate their RE statement - 'Genesis explores why the universe and life exists. Science explores how the universe works the way it does.’
Please view our 'Sandbags and Sirens - MTP' to see the range of other activities will be completing across the autumn term.
Children will be swimming on a Friday morning and will need their swimming kits each week.
PE sessions are subject to change - we would therefore appreciate it if your child's full PE kit (white t-shirt, navy shorts, trainers/plimsolls) is in all week.
