Zennor in Lockdown

Hello lovely Zennor children.

I am really missing seeing all of you every day - but I know that you will be making the most of this bonus time with your families. I am still very busy with school work but I am managing to annoy Margot by making her run with me. She really hates going up hills in the rain! I've also been planting vegetables in my allotment - I love being outside and getting muddy. 

Make sure that you read as much as possible and get outside when it is sunny. Be kind to the people around you and do what you can to help ( I know you will because you are all amazing). I'm looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

Much love

Miss Hill

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' homework sheet is feature in the downloads below. 
 

Building Learning Power

Our new learning power for this half term is 'Managing Distractions'. This skill is an important part of all areas of learning and focusses on being able to remain on task.

In science we are learning about the state of matter.....
Dissolving, melting, freezing, evaporating.......solids liquids and gases and changing from one to the other. Are changes reversible or irreversible? 
 
We will also be learning how to conduct a fair test, how to make sure we are thinking scientifically, and what we can do to improve any investigations that we take part in. We will also have a lot of scientific fun!
READING AT HOME IS SO IMPORTANT - PLEASE BUILD IT INTO YOUR ROUTINE
 
Stuck for what to read? Try some of these recommended reads for Y3. Remember that our local library is a great place to try out books before you buy - and they will order books in for you to try too.
 
 
 
If you would like more information about why reading at home is so important please follow the link below or read the attached DFE study.
 
 
Please see the document below that gives you ideas of how to help your child when they read with you at home - it contains useful sentence stems that will help you when you ask questions.
 
 
In RE this half term all of Y3 have been learning about Hinduism. As it was Diwali last weekend we made vegan sweets and salt dough lamps. We all had a great time learning about this Hindu festival and covered ourselves in flour and icing sugar in the process.
Zennor class had a brilliant time on Carbis Bay Beach on Friday 22nd November, despite the rain! If we had waited for a dry morning, we might never have gone. The trip was a chance to explore mixing, dissolving and separating materials as part of our science learning. We also ticked off one of our 50 experiences - a beach clean. The photos show the amazing learning that went on. Thank you to our parent helpers - they were a vital part of the team!
We had an amazing day at Gwennap Pit and the Helston Museum of Cornish Life. We ran a mile, drank squash, polished our VIPERS skills finding information about John Wesley, showed resilience and patience in the road diversion between Redruth and Helston, were fascinated by 19th century kitchens and a larger than life Mousehole Cat, and had a thoroughly brilliant trip out. Thank you very much to the parents that supported us - we hope you enjoyed discovering new parts of Cornwall on the diversion.
