Welcome to Morvah!
Children in Morvah are in their final year at St Uny Academy. They have already proven themselves to be a great asset to the school, and with the addition of our Head Boy and Head Girl, we have no doubt that they will be superb role models for the rest of our school.
Our spring term topic, Raid, Trade and Invade, focuses on the history of the Vikings and Anglo-Saxon invasions of Britain. The children will explore where the Vikings originated from and their position within the timeline of British history. We will also research why the Vikings invaded Britain and the impact that they have had on the way we live in the modern day.
During the spring term, children will be taking greater ownership over their own writing projects as 'writing apprentices'. They will be selecting the style of writing that they would like to complete as a class and will also have the opportunity to write some non-fiction pieces related to their science topic - Living Things and their Habitats.
Our RE topic will require children to consider the big question - 'Why is Cornwall such a spiritual place?' and will require us to look at Cornwall as a place of Christianity and spiritual enquiry. We will be exploring how the people of Cornwall learn about Christianity; why people feel attracted to Cornwall as a centre of spirituality and spiritual experience; and the development of local celebrations which look beyond the origins of Christianity in Cornwall.
Please view our 'Raid, Trade and Invade - MTP' to see the range of other activities will be completing across the spring term.
This half term, we will be completing a block of orienteering and adventurous activities. The majority of these sessions will take place outside so children need to be sent in with the appropriate PE kit.
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.
