Welcome to Godrevy Class.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back in September!

For the first half of the Autumn term, we will be learning about our topic 'Earth and Space'. 

 

If you have any  resources connected with our space topic that you would like us to share in class, please send it in via the office. Please see our planning for more information about our topic. 

 

In science, we will be learning about Electicity and Sound for Autumn term. These are great topics that gives us the opportunity to do lots of investigating and thinking scientifically. 

 

 In RE, our focus for world religion will be Judaism and we will continue to learn more about their beliefs, rituals and celebrations. Alongside this, the children will be have weekly lessons on Christianity and spirituality sessions alongside daily  virtual collective worship. 

 

If you have any questions,  please catch Mrs Quick at the end of the day or pop a note in your child's reading record.

Please keep your eye on our class page for updates and photos showing what we have been up to!

 
 
 
Weekly events in Godrevy:

PE will take place on Thursday afternoon and we will be teaching the children all about dance and gymnastics this half term. We would like PE kits in school all half term because we sometimes do extra PE sessions during the week. Swimming for Godrevy will take place during this term. A letter will be sent home soon.

 

Homework will be initially be based on the current theme, 'Earth and Space'. Attached to this page is the Chilli Challenge sheet based on the topic. Please encourage your children to take part in this creative homework. The children will receive certificates for their contribution and their work will be displayed on our celebration wall in lower key stage 2. Please ensure your child does a minimum of 10 points on the homework grid.

Daily reading and times tables practise on TT Rockstars are still very important and the children’s reading records will be checked daily to make sure that they are reading regularly. In addition, please practise the year 3/4 spellings with your child as often as possible.

 

 

Building Learning Power

Our new learning power for this half term is 'Managing Distractions' and we will be looking to inspire all of our children to be as independent and intrinsically engaged in their learning as possible. 

 

READING IS SO IMPORTANT IN KS2!
Please see the links below for more information.
In June, Y4 children will be taking their online times table check. This will be discussed at parents' evening. Please make times tables a priority at home this term. Y4 pupils should know their tables up to 12x12.
 
Please continue to read nightly.

This half term, Godrevy Class are focusing their guided reading sessions on the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' by Roald Dahl. We will be using the VIPERS  ( vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation and summary) reading comprehension strategies to examine the book in detail. We will also be reading a range of Cornish myths and legends and focusing on non-fiction texts about the region.
