Welcome to Morvah! 
Hello and welcome to Morvah class 2023/2024!
The children of Morvah class are now in Y5 and what an incredible primary school journey they have had! Our children have already shown an amazing level of resilience and have been extremely flexible in adapting to new learning challenges throughout the last few years, and we cannot wait to see the fantastic things that they achieve in the coming year.
Our autumn term topic is 'The Tudors'. Throughout this topic the children will learn about the different Tudor monarchs and how they impacted our Country, as well as delving into the Tudor way of life, and how very different it is from ours! Our geography will be linked to our history topic of the Tudors as we will be focused on the travels of Tudor explorer Sir Frances Drake. We will be learning about geographical features of things he would have passed on his voyage, such as, volcanoes, rivers, coasts and mountains.
In their RE sessions, the children will be exploring the overall enquiry question: 'What does it mean for Christians to be Holy and loving?'. We will be following an Understanding Christianity unit focused on Christian beliefs about God. Our main investigations will be to understand the views that different Christians hold and how Christians put these beliefs into practice. In the second half of the autumn term Morvah class will be moving on to study our world faith, where we will be exploring the question, 'What does it mean to be a Muslim in Britian today?'. Across this unit the children will learn all about Islamic beliefs and will also refer back to their world faith knowledge from previous years to compare and contrast with.
Science this term will be a study of forces for the first half of term. This is a fantastic unit in science that gives the children plenty of opportunity to use their scientific investigation skills. After this the children will learn all about the wonders of earth and space. This is another great science topic which really gets all the children hooked- I cannot wait!
Please see below to find our termly plan and chilli challenge homework grid for the autumn term.
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 grids give children a great range of activities and crafts to get busy with throughout the term.
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.
 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.
