Kynance is part of our EYFS unit at St Uny and we welcome both Nursery and Reception aged children in our class.
We follow the EYFS curriculum and take part in a combination of child-led and adult-led activities throughout the day. We also share an outside space with Tehidy class where we can play and interact with all children and adults from our EYFS unit.
This term we will learning through the topic of 'Me and My Family'. Please see our medium term plan below for more information on the areas of learning that will be covered this term.
PE will take place at different times throughout the week so please ensure that your child has a named PE bag in school at all times.
Building Learning Power
Our new learning power for this half term is 'Empathy and Listening'.
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.
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 be based on the current topic ‘Me and My Family’. Attached to this page is the Chilli Challenge Homework grid - not every activity needs to be completed but please aim for your child to earn a minimum of 10 points. The children wil be able to share their work and experiences with their friends in the class and physical pieces and photographs will be displayed on our homework board in KS1.
