Hello lovely children in Zennor!

We are so looking forward to having you back in school after a wonderful Easter - we know you will tell us all about it when we see you.

This term  our learning will be based around the Stone Age. We will be learning what life was like for Stone Age people by looking closely at the settlement of Skara Brae, and our art and DT will be based around our learning too.

Please make sure this term that you all have a full PE kit in school at all times - PE will usually be on Wednesday, but I like to take advantage of good weather and get out as much as possible. We'll start with devising our own Stone Age dance and then honing our athletics skills.

 Reading at home every night is incredibly important, and could I also remind you to practise all of your times tables at home as often as possible. Times tables facts are needed in so many strands of maths and become even more important in Y4. If you can learn as many facts as possible now it will really help you next year.

Oh - and remember that in KS2 we don't have fruit provided, so bring in your own snack for breaktime - fruit or vegetables please to stay as healthy as possible.

Here's to a brilliant Summer Term - I know you will all be amazing.

I've also added some photos from last term to remind everyone what amazing things we got up to!


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

Each half term we focus on a different learning power - next half term our learning power will be respect. 

We have been investigating shadows in Zennor class today. Is it possible to change the size or shape of a shadow?  What happens when you move a shape closer to a light source?
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.
RE - Diwali Day
Zennor class have celebrated the start of Diwali with sweet treat making, diva lamp construction and a retelling of the story of Rama and Sita. Happy Diwali everyone!
Zennor spent the day at PK Porthcurno today learning about communication in World War 2 - we had an amazing time making our own circuits to message each other in Morse code, and we loved seeing the unexploded bomb and playing in the interactive sections of the museum.
We had an amazing afternoon as the guests of Savvy Dance Studios where we got to strut our stuff and throw some shapes. We were actually very good!
We wondered whether the length of your femur affected how far you could we investigated!
We had an excellent afternoon using tights as intestines and plastic bags as stomachs to show how the human digestion system works.........messy but so much fun!
Dobbies have welcomed us on two occasions - the first was to research Christmas decorations before we started making our own.
