Welcome to Kynance!
Throughout the Autumn term we will be learning through the overall topic of
'Houses and homes through History'.
In History we will be learning about how houses and homes have changed through time and why. We will be taking a walk around our local area to spot different types of houses and looking at their features. We have already booked a class trip to the Helston Museum of Cornish Life and there will be more information about this in a few weeks time!

Building Learning Power
Our new learning power for this half term is 'Collaboration'.
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 ‘Victorian Britain and Seasonal Changes’. 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 reading the story 'Wombat Goes Walkabout' by Michael Morpurgo.
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.
