Welcome to Morvah! 
 
Hello, Morvah Munchkins!
 
I am missing you all so much and hope that you are all staying safe and well. If you saw our video on Facebook, you will know that I have been keeping busy at home and over at Connor Downs Academy, our local hub school. I have really been enjoying seeing all of the projects and activities that you have been completing at home - keep them coming!
 
When the time is right, we will see you all again. Until then, make sure that you are keeping busy with the home learning activities (find these on the Home Learning tab of the home page) and chilli challenge activities from our summer term topic - Extreme Earth.
 
 
 PE -

PE sessions are subject to change - we would therefore appreciate it if your child's full PE kit (white t-shirt, navy shorts, trainers/plimsolls) is in all week. 

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.
Y6 have CGP study books that need to be completed weekly. These will help them to review key skills ready for their SATs in May and will help us to identify any areas that they need extra support with.
 
Reading: 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, which is why we are introducing ‘Reading Karate’ this year. This is a reward based system for reading at home, which results in the children moving up through coloured ‘belts’ (wristbands) depending on how many ‘reads’ they have completed. We would greatly appreciate your support with this new initiative, not only by listening to your child read but by perhaps sharing some of your favourite books from your childhood with them too. 
 
Maths: St Uny Church of England Academy has invested in ‘Timestables Rockstars’, an online resource for learners to practise their multiplication skills. This will enable children to become more fluent in their multiplication tables. Upper KS2 children should be completing 2 x 20min sessions per week.
 
Topic: The topic overview will be sent home at the start of each half term - this will include challenges from across the curriculum. Y6 are still welcome to complete these 'chilli challenge' activities alongside their CGP study books.
 
Spellings:  Each week, children will be sent home with the spelling lists that need to be practised for their spelling test on the following Friday. Please support your children in identifying the spelling rules and use the Spelling Shed to support their learning. The spelling lists for the year can be found below.
