Welcome to Morvah! 
Hello and welcome back!
The children of Morvah class are now in their final year at St Uny CE Academy and what an incredibly interesting journey they have had so far! Our year 6s have already shown an amazing level of resilience and have been extremely flexible in adapting to new learning challenges throughout the last year. We cannot wait to see the fantastic things that they achieve in their final year with us.
Our first topic is 'Extreme Earth' and will focus on the awesome power of nature. The children will using their geographical skills and locational knowledge to identify key environmental and topographical features, and will be exploring the formation of/cause of volcanoes and earthquakes. 
Please see below to find our 'Extreme Earth' topic grid. 
 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.
