September 2020

Hello lovely children in Zennor!

I am really looking forward to seeing you all on Monday - I have really missed teaching a class.

It is always strange coming back to school in September after the holidays and this year it will be even stranger because we have had so much extra time at home. Don't worry - Mr T and I will be with you every step of the way and we'll make sure you are OK. Y3 is lots of fun - we'll have a really good time learning together.

Our first topic is World War 2 - we will be learning all about what life was like for families during that time. I'm also really excited about our writing this half term - we've got an excellent story to start with and lots of brilliant ways to make producing exciting writing easier for you all.

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 - pop back here in September to find out which one will be next!

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 on Friday 11th September.
 
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.
