Welcome to Tehidy Class!


Here we are in Summer Term 2, ready for a big push to the end of the year! Tehidy class have been working so hard and continue to thrive off of new challenges and work collaboratively within the class to ensure all of their peers are supported. Our big focus for this half term continues to be our phonics development which the children continue to work really hard in.


This half term our class topic is 'Amazing Africa'. 

We are about to embark on a journey to Africa, where we will be creating African necklaces, African tribal art as well as exploring tribal music. We will also have the opportunity to complete some research on the Chromebooks, something which the children really enjoy doing. 

In English we will be studying 'The Lion King film',  linking this to lots of fiction writing, as well as studying the text, 'Handa's Surprise' where we will make links between our Geography work, where we will be looking at similarities and differences between Cornwall and an African Country. 


I hope to take the children to the local beach to celebrate the end of our phonics screening checks, which the children have been working so hard for. We will also visit our local church, St Uny and we hope to attend the local forest school to support our learning in science where we will be studying the structure of plants, as well as having the chance to grow our own! We have a busy half term ahead for sure! 

(For further details, please see the Medium Term Plan below) 



This half term, our P.E lessons will be on a Monday afternoon. Please be aware that P.E slots may be subject to change, therefore we would appreciate it if P.E kits are kept in school all week. We will continue to develop our basic movements including throwing and catching and we will start to move these skills into team games, ready for sports day. 



Our library slot is on a Friday afternoon.  Please remember to return library books every Friday to enable us to provide your child with a new book. 



What fantastic homework we had displayed in our classroom last term, from beautiful capes to scrummy cookies and cakes. What really stood out was the level of independent writing by the children and their enthusiasm to share this with the class. I look forward to seeing more this term when the new homework grids are handed out this week. 



Please make sure all children are reading every night, this is crucial to support them with their development not just in reading but writing too.
