March 2024

This month we have been studying the Vikings. Our history question was; ‘Who were the Vikings and what impact did they have on Britain?’ The children asked and answered questions about the past and evaluated the reliability of their evidence to discover more about this period in history. They uncovered where the Viking period came in our history timeline and then who the Vikings were, where their homelands where and where and why they came and settled here. They then looked at the impact the Vikings had on Britain by studying how Britain was before the Vikings came to settle, how it was during their raids and this era and then after the Viking era ended.

In Literacy this month we have been studying the story ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’. We read the story as a class over the course of the month whilst completing VIPER activities and using our Fab Four characters to investigate the story in more detail. The children completed lots of SPaG work, particularly focusing on expanded noun phrases, direct speech and fronted adverbials before eventually planning, writing and editing their very own short story as an unlikely hero.

In Maths we completed lots of work on fractions. The children also spent lots of time working on their multiplications. We have been using Times Table Rockstars to help increase our recall of times table facts.

In Science this month we celebrated science week by completing several extra science investigations in addition to our electricity unit. The children spent lots of time investigating circuits in their unit of learning and looking at renewable and non-renewable sources and electrical safety. Our extra investigations involved the children researching farming of the future and then used the Tinkercad software to design their own farm of the future. They also used Scratch Jnr. to explore time travel. After researching what time travel could be the children demonstrated how it might look using the Scratch Jnr. app.

End of Spring Term 2024

The Spring Term has been a busy but exciting term. The children of Talland Class have learned how to add, subtract and multiply fractions. These are amazing skills which were made easy by the children's daily multiplication tables practice. Each step to successfully embracing this knowledge and understanding was made with enthusiasm, resilience and increased confidence. Well done, Talland Class!

The children's favourite part of this term was the visit to the Houses of Parliament in London. Not only did they embrace the magnificent views and landmarks of London - the London Eye, Big Ben and Tower Bridge - they also experienced an inside atmospheric view of the Houses of Parliament. This also included standing in the room above the cellars in which Guy Fawkes was caught with gunpowder in 1605. This was a fabulous and memorable visit for the children.

Enjoy your well earned Easter Holidays. We will see you when you return in April for some more exciting learning.

best wishes,

Mr Parry, Mrs Swabey and the Talland Class team (Mrs Walters and Ms Rowlands)

Spring time and Science


Solids, Liquids and Gasses.

We have been busy with our science this term to witness the changes that happen during some solid and liquid experiments.

First we made Ice decorations showing that liquid can change to a solid and then back to a liquid using the freezing and melting method.

Secondly in science we cut up fruit and mixed with our liquid (yogurt) and froze it to see if we could make it into a solid. It froze and made delicious fruit lollipops.

When we froze water, milk, vinegar and apple juice, some of us thought the milk would freeze first, some the water and some the vinegar. The water froze first with the milk at a close second.


Finally we decided to see if we could turn a solid into a liquid by using the melting process. I think the boys enjoyed this the most. The water that reached boiling point during the melting process turned into a gas (we could see this by the the steam rising).

March has been an action packed month. We designed and made our Easter baskets using the weaving technique we had practised on paper. We learnt about the human body and how senses can be used to inform us about what is around us. We learnt about a significant figure in the world of paleontology - Mary Anning.
We had a great time on our Wild Tribe morning. We loved getting creative with crafts and stories out in the woods.
We went on a trip to The Box museum in Plymouth. We took the train and joined a local children's author in celebrating the International Day of Happiness. We each came up with ideas that the author made into a song. We sang the song together at Plymouth station. While at The Box we learned all about the detective work that natural historians do. We tried to match up animals skulls to their diets and their species. We met Mildred the woolly mammoth - she was magnificent and quite enormous! We also got to see some huge fossils up close which reminded us of our work on Mary Anning.
In literacy we have learnt about, told and written riddles about animals and about dinosaurs. We read our dinosaur riddles to Year 4 who had to guess which type of dinosaur was being described. 
|n maths we have been exploring numbers to 50 and going outdoors to use our length measuring skills.

by Rachel Tomkins

In February we began thinking about a new big question - 'How do we know about dinosaurs?'. We began learning about fossils and paleontologists. 
In science, we learned about what different animals like to eat and whether they are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. We also learnt that some animals make more suitable pets than others and explored the reasons for this.
This month we also learnt more about internet safety. We used the DigiDuck stories to explore how we should conduct ourselves online and we learnt that, when we see something online that makes us feel uncomfortable, we should stop, close and tell a trusted adult. 
We have also began exploring patterns, textures and colours in fabrics and have started to learn to weave by weaving paper. 
In literacy we have been reading and writing letters inspired by the 'Dear Dinosaur' story.

Computing - Scratch

We have really enjoyed using Scratch, we have had to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively. It has been good to explore the programme with our peers and everyone has grown in confidence and learnt something new.

We have reached the end of Spring Term 2 and what a busy term it has been. The children have really enjoyed our focus on animals and birds with lots of activities and learning focussed on our enquiry question - Who left these footprints?  

Alongside this we have also celebrated World Book Day, St Piran’s Day, British Science Week and Easter. 

This week we have enjoyed lots of Easter themed activities, including egg hunts, egg decorating and even a lovely visit from Mrs Stanbury and 2 of her week old lambs! The children were very lucky to have a go at bottle feeding them and having lots of cuddles. The children and adults all absolutely loved having them visit.  

Some of our children joined the whole school over at church for an Easter celebration service with Reverend Richard.

This week we sadly had to say our goodbyes to Mrs Oliver, the children all made a handprint flower that were presented to Mrs Oliver as a bouquet. All of us at Pre-School will miss Mrs Oliver, but we wish her the very best of luck at her new school.
 

On our return to Pre-School, we hope to see some more settled weather so that the children can have more use of our garden area which will link in nicely to our new enquiry question for Summer Term 1 - Are plants alive? The children will experience planting seeds, looking after their plants, discovering minibeasts and learning about simple life cycles.  

From all the Pre-School Team we would like to wish you a very Happy Easter, hopefully we all get to enjoy some sunny days and family time.  

We look forward to seeing the children when we return on Monday 15th April.

This week, we have had fun using our Myth writing skills to create a completely different Myth, we have learnt about andding annd subtracting fractions and rounded up our learning on Holy week in RE. The children thoroughly enjoyed our DT morning where they made their moving monsters. They are coming home today to be enjoyed-can your child explain how they work? In PE, we used a map of the school grounds to navigate in orienteering. 

Have a super Easter break everyone!


 


St Cleer Primary Academy   An Easter Visit to St Cleer Church

Happy Easter! 

This week 3/4B visited the church to learn about what Easter means to people of the Christian faith. They got involved in all sorts of activities including exploring bible stories through the use of props to making easter crosses and writing their own prayers. They learnt that if you want to you can say "amen" when praying together - this means, "I agree". The children were also able to ask lots of interesting questions and I was really impressed with how they engaged with the activities. Well done 3/4B and have a fantastic Easter holiday!

Have an Egg-cellent Easter!

What a lovely week we have had in Landaviddy!

We finished making our moveable volcano posters, by attaching a lever mechanism. The results were fantastic! You should all feel very proud of your hard work!

After a lot of effort in Computing, we managed to connect the microbit's to our class iPads and download the algorithms of our volcano animations. 

Jamie brought in some real pieces of solidified lava that his Granny brought back from her recent holiday. We couldn't believe it! The rock had a very interesting texture and smell. Thank you for sharing this with us.

We also had a visit from the Easter Bunny, which was very exciting! 

Congratulations to Arnie for being Landaviddy's Person of the Week! And a big well done for the whole of Landaviddy class for being determined and always trying your best.

Today, we have had to say goodbye to Mr H, who is moving on to a new job. We will miss you Mr H and wish you the best of luck!

I hope you have a lovely Easter holidays, enjoy some relaxation and sunshine (hopefully)! We look forward to seeing you back in school on Monday 15th April

Have a very Hoppy Easter Penhallow!

We have enjoyed a fabulous end to our spring term this week. 

We have learned all about the Easter Story and how Christians celebrate Easter. The week started with a wonderful assembly from Reverend Richard, we learned all about the relevance of the Hot Cross Bun and how Christians celebrate Easter by making Easter Gardens. The Easter Bunny paid us a visit today and delivered everyone a chocolate egg, which the children thoroughly enjoyed!

We had a fabulous lesson all about how important trees are and how we could look after our trees. We learned about climate change and since, the children have been telling me off for not using both sides of paper! Being very mindful of our environment.

Our PE lesson on Wednesday was altered to an Easter version, learning team games, Bunny, Bunny, Easter Bunny was thoroughly enjoyed by all!

Well done to our 'People of the Week' this week, Tommy and Emily for showing super examples of our school values!

I will update the twinklGO! activites throughout the holidays to keep you updated with our current phonics and maths learning. Please keep up with your fantastic reading, every day!

Enjoy a wonderful Easter break and we look forward to welcoming you back for the Summer term on the 15th.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY! 

It's been a fun-filled week in Talland and everyone is very excited to sink their teeth into some well deserved chocolate. 

The children have become fantastic little gymnasts and have enjoyed assessing their rolls, balances and jumps and putting them into sequences. 

The Victorian Dolls House has been a success and looks brilliant - the design brief has been met - YAY!

Today, we managed to find all of the chocolate during our Easter Egg Hunt and created some (rather flimsy) baskets to pop our chocolate in. 

Well done to everyone for working so incredibly hard this term and congratulations to Harrison and Leo for being nominated as people of the week.

That's all from us. We all hope you have an absolutely incredible Easter Break.

 Signing off from Mr. Langley, Mr. Bishop and Mrs. Hodge.

Spring 2- Week 6 - Happy Easter! 

We come to the end of Spring 2 and are so pleased with all the wonderful work that the Reception children have done this term. They have absolutely loved learning traditional tales and inventing their own, acting in the role play area (we spotted a quite ferocious daddy bear checking his porridge yesterday) and the joy and vocabulary that they have developed through their story telling has been magical. This week our learning challenge was to explore the different characters and describe what they were like in the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. We were amazed by the children's vocabulary when describing the characters; they used words which we have previously explored in learning time. The children also impressed us with their use of extended sentences with using 'because' to share their reasoning in their character descriptions.

In maths, we have been continuing to practise finding one more and one less for numbers up to 10, subitising numbers to 6 and getting to know the names and some of the properties of some 3D shapes. The children were so pleased when they spotted cones and spheres in our playground. 

After Easter,  we will move on to our new overarching topic of 'What is the world like outside our window?'. The children will be discovering other ways of life from around the world, we will be celebrating our town, county and country and we will be exploring the world through land and sea!

We hope you have a well deserved rest of the holidays and we shall see you all back on Monday 15th April.

Best wishes,

The Reception Team

Despite the very dark and gloomy weather outside today, our school was filled with bright colours and Easter fun. 

The children had a great time at the Easter Obstacle Eggstravaganza. They all hopped into activities such as egg rolling, bunny hopping, egg throwing and of course the classic egg and spoon!

Thank you to everyone that donated towards Mrs Bryant's Sky Dive challenge. We raised a fantastic amount of money for Childrens Hospice South West which is a charity very close to our hearts. 

Thank you also to our Year 6 Sports Leaders and Leadership Team, they were fabulous!

Have a great Easter. We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 15th April.

Best wishes,

Spring 2 - Week 6 - Have a crackin' break! 

English

It was all about poetry, this week in English. The children looked into themes of prejudice, culture and traditions and wrote a retaliation poem in response to the poem ‘The Jelabi Tree’. We were incredibly proud of the confidence they had to tackle such mature themes and they were very excited to read aloud the poems that they had produced.

Next term, we will be exploring ‘The Piano’ as a video inspiration for emotive writing.

Maths

In Maths, this week, we began our learning journey of statistics. The children have explored line graphs, drawn line graphs, interpreted data and looked at tables. The children have enjoyed finding and recording data in different ways.

We have continued to revisit and retrieve key knowledge in our morning work. After Easter we will continue to complete regular arithmetic papers and begin to introduce new concepts ready for Year 6! EEEK.

Please over the Easter holidays continue to encourage your children in accessing TTRS.

Wider Curriculum

In Wider Curriculum we came to the end of our SPACE learning journey. The children did their final loop in forces looking at friction, identifying how much friction is caused when two objects move against each other. The children used a range of surfaces testing a shoes movement; using a newton meter to measure the force.  The children then recorded their findings in a bar chart, they then wrote conclusions using the key vocabulary from the lesson.

We have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about SPACE and look forward to our new learning journey of ‘Changes’ after Easter. WATCH THIS SPACE…

Easter Extravaganza

On Thursday the children were involved in an Easter fundraising event for Little Harbours children’s hospice. They had a go at a range of different activities in an obstacle course. The children donated, came in own clothes and had so much fun, all for a wonderful cause.

IMPORTANT:
PE for next term has changed to a Friday and we will be looking at Athletics - Track and Field events. 

Have an EGGcellent Easter,

Best wishes,

The Year 5 team

Dear All!

We have come to the end of a very busy term!  The children have had a broad range of learning and opportunities this term and I can safely say that we are all tired and ready for the break!

The children have covered money, multiplication and some aspects of measure in maths this term.  Next term will focus on finishing all of the curriculum and then will be revisiting and practising methods and strategies in preparation for their SATs in May.

In English, the children have written a very important letter to the Prime Minister to persuade him to do more regarding climate change in this country.  Alongside this, they have covered many different habitats and how it all relates to one another!  Not to mention our trip to the Aquarium which was excellent and the children thoroughly enjoyed it!

We made moon buggies too!  The children loved learning about all of the different explorers past and present and particularly enjoyed the moon landings!

We have also had many other exciting things like our celebration on St Pirans day and also TT Rockstars and World Book days where the children had opportunities to dress up (and adults too!).

We have many more lovely things planned for Summer Term!

Enjoy your Easter everyone!

Mrs Brewer, Miss Ryan and Miss B
