Hello lovely children in Zennor!

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

This term  our learning will be based around the Ancient Greeks. Our first writing text is the Greek myth Theseus and the Minotaur and we will be reading many more myths in our reading lessons.

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 practising our jumps in gymnastics and then develop our own  events for the Zennor Olympics at the end of term.

 Reading at home every night is incredibly important, and we will be focussing in class on the 3x, 4x and 8x tables this 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 Spring Term - I know you will all be amazing.


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. 

Zennor Spelling lists
The spelling lists with test dates are shown below. Spelling tests will happen every Friday. Please help your child to learn their spellings each week by thinking about the meaning of the words, looking for patterns in the words and by using the look, copy, cover technique. If you are not sure which Zennor spellings your child needs to do please let us know - we will send home a copy with each child before the term starts, but extra copies are always on hand in school or here on the Zennor page.
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.
