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, focuses on the history of WWII. The children have been exploring the causes and consequences of WWII, and will spend the second half of the term 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.
During the second half of the term, children will be choosing their own WWII themed English stimulus - Bedknobs and Broomsticks or Valiant. We will use this stimulus to support a range of fiction writing - dilemma stories, adventure narratives and character descriptions. The children will also have the opportunity to write some non-fiction pieces related to their science topic - electricity.
Our RE topic will require children to consider the big question - 'What Would Jesus Do?' We will be looking at the bigger picture of the Bible and considering what Jesus would do in a variety of situations. We will be be exploring the foundations of living using Matthew 7:24-27; discussing and researching whether enemies can become friends by writing a recipe for forgiveness; and designing a new local Christian Church thinking about what Jesus would do? What would he design, and why? Is it better to express faith through art and architecture, or charity and generosity? What range of actions might be right actions? Which might be Jesus’ response, and why?
Please view our 'Sandbags and Sirens - MTP' to see the range of other activities will be completing across the autumn term.
This half term, we will be completing a block of dance sessions. We will be performing dances using a range of movement patterns - the Charleston, the Lindy Hop etc.
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.
