Spellings
The spellings for each week will consist of 18 words: 6 for each level (bronze, silver and gold). The children need to pick a level in which to aim for that week; this will help to encourage indpedendent learning. The children need to get all 6 spellings correct in each level in order to obtain a bronze, silver or gold award for the week. The help sheet is attached in order to provide helpful guidance when practising spellings at home.
Homework
This year, in preparation for next year, there will be a small piece of Maths and English homework to complete each night. All children should aim to have a go as the maths will focus on the basic skills of adding, subtracting, multiplication and division with an optional extension. Children should aim to accomplish as much as they can; if there are any problems that arise, do not hesitate to contact me via Dojo or with a comment in their homework book.

Cornwall in WAR
 
This term we are beginning our  Cornwall Topic. All of our Topic areas focus on a wide range of core skills which aim to equip your children with a range of experiences. From looking at the places within the region that engaged with World War II, to delving into the history books investigating a Cornish family in Penryn who were affected by war, the topic covers a whole range of different core skills. The children will also have an opportunity to study a local Cornish artist and use charcoal to create atmosphere in their compositions. Moreover, the children will also learn to understand their own place within a historical time frame to be able to empathise with soldiers and families that WWII affected. This is a great topic and it has great regional significance. We cannot wait to begin our learning!
 
Science: Light
We are learning all about how light travels this term in our Science lessons. By integrating this with our 'Cornwall in War' Topic, the children will gain an understanding as to materials used to create a 'blackout' and also light restricting and light reflecting/refracting materials. We will also be learning about the eye and conducting some experiments into refraction.
