Welcome to Mousehole Class!

 

There will be two themes this term. The first theme will be looking at local history, in particular the Cornish mining and fishing industries. We will also be looking at the history of the coast guard and the challenges of the sea. In music we will be singing traditional Cornish songs and learning about their development as miners moved around the globe taking their traditions with them. We will be learning about the growth of Wesleyanism and will be taking a trip to Gwennap Pit as well as visiting other sites of Cornish heritage.

 

Our next theme will be Ancient Egypt. The children will learn all about pyramids, tombs, ancient religion, embalming, art, geographical features, wars and hieroglyphics.

We have Swimming on a Friday for the next four weeks but we may do PE at other points during the week if possible - please make sure you have your PE kit all the time, just in case!

 
 
 
Homework - 
At St Uny Church of England Academy, we believe homework is anything children do outside of the normal school day that contributes to their learning, in response to guidance from the school. Homework encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents/carers to support the children's learning. Our 'Chilli Challenge' homework sheet is feature in the downloads below. 
 

Building Learning Power

Our new learning power for this half term is 'Managing Distractions'. This skill is an important part of all areas of learning and focusses on being able to remain on task.


 

READING AT HOME IS SO IMPORTANT - PLEASE BUILD IT INTO YOUR ROUTINE
 
Stuck for what to read? Try some of these recommended reads for Y3. Remember that our local library is a great place to try out books before you buy - and they will order books in for you to try too.
 
 
 
If you would like more information about why reading at home is so important please follow the link below or read the attached DFE study.
 
Maths and Times Tables: St Uny Church of England Academy has invested in ‘Timestables Rockstars’, an online resource for learners to practise their multiplication skills. This will enable children to become more fluent in their multiplication tables. KS2 children should be completing 2 x 20min sessions per week.
In June, Y4 children will be taking their online times table check. Please make times tables a priority at home. Y4 pupils should know their tables up to 12x12.
