Welcome to Zennor Class!

 Our theme this term is Anglo Saxons and we will start by focusing on the legend of the hero Beowulf, so look forward to lots of tales of monsters and bravery! We will also be learning about how Cornwall withstood the Anglo Saxon invasion and seeing how this changed how England was ruled.

We will be keeping an eye on current news too - there is an awful lot happening in politics at the minute.

I am really looking forward to teaching Y3 this year - we are going to work really hard and have a lot of fun too!

PE is on Thursdays - please make sure you have your PE kit all the time, just in case we get the chance to do some extra!

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 'Reasoning'. This skill is an important part of all areas of learning and focusses on being able to explain our knowledge to others.

In science we are learning about sound.......
Try this experiment at home to see how sound waves travel. Tie a piece of string to a metal spoon and swing the spoon until it hits the side of a table or a chair. Can you feel the vibrations in your fingers? That's the sound waves travelling up the string! If you put the string around your finger, and your finger in your ear the sound waves have a direct route to follow and it should sound louder! Let us know how you get on.
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.
Please see the document below that gives you ideas of how to help your child when they read with you at home - it contains useful sentence stems that will help you when you ask questions.
In RE this half term all of Y3 have been learning about Hinduism. As it was Diwali last weekend we made vegan sweets and salt dough lamps. We all had a great time learning about this Hindu festival and covered ourselves in flour and icing sugar in the process.
