Welcome to Kynance!

Throughout the Summer term we will be learning through the topic of 'Famous People through History'. We will be learning about Rosa Parks in History lessons and the influence she has had on events through history and today. Please see our medium term planning below for more information about these themes and other learning that will also be taking place this term. 

In Science  we will be learning about what makes humans animals. We will be starting by identifying, naming, drawing and labelling the basic parts of the human body and will then learn to identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Finally the children will describe and compare the structure of a variety of common animals including pets!

In Art, we will be exploring wether art has to last forever by learning about the artist Andy Goldworthy. We will be creating impressed prints in modelling clay, printing using found objects and creating random and repeating patterns while practicing our colour mixing skills. 

In RE we will be exploring the big questions: How should we care for others and the world and why does it matter? Followed by What makes some places in Cornwall sacred? Children will learn about stories from the Bible and what these texts mean to Christians as well as making links to Judaism. We will also learn about how Christians put their beliefs into action within the community. 

PE will take place on a Thursday morning, however, please ensure that children have their PE kit in school at all times as PE may also take place on additional days. Due to the warmer weather PE is likely to take place outside for much of this term so please ensure your child has suitable footwear. We will be learning to master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination through a range of games and activities. 

Building Learning Power

Our new learning power for this half term is 'Reasoning'.

If you have any questions, please send a message to the office and we will get straight back to you. 


 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.

Homework will initially be based on the current topic ‘Houses and Homes through History’. Attached to this page is the Chilli Challenge Homework grid 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 key stage 1. Please ensure your child does a minimum of 10 points on the homework grid.


This term we will be learning the story of 'The Mermaid of Zennor' and will be reading the novel 'The Return to Zennor' by Lilac Rosenwyn. 

Reading is a lifelong skill that we try to develop as your child continues their journey through our school. We are keen to develop a love of books and escapism as early as possible and we use ‘Reading Karate’ to help us to do this. This is a reward based system for reading at home, which results in the children moving through coloured ‘belts’ (wristbands) depending on how many ‘reads’ they have completed. We would greatly appreciate your support with this initiative.

Daily reading is very important and the children’s reading records will be checked daily to make sure that they are reading regularly. We endeavour to hear all children read at some point during each week, but this often takes place during Read Write Inc. lessons and wont always be recorded in their reading records. 

Times Tables
During year 1 the children will be working hard to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Below are a few web links, which may help you to support your child with remembering these multiplication facts.
