Spring Term

Class 4 have had a great Spring Term and even though we ended the term a little early we packed in a huge amount of learning!

Our Chocolate topic was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, from our Opening Event making Rocky Road and Chocolate Truffles to visiting Kernow Chocolate in St Eval. We learnt about the origins of chocolate, how it is made and we now recognise that despite chocolate being so delicious, there is also a darker side to its production. This made us think very carefully about the products we will choose in the future!

We have worked extremely hard in all of our subjects, particularly Maths and English. We looked at Aztecs in Art and created some interesting designs. We considered internet safety and how important it is to stay safe on line. This included understanding that we don’t give out personal details, knowing that we report things that don’t seem right and that we are careful when playing online games with others. Given the amount of time we are currently spending at home at the moment this is vital to remember!

We really enjoyed learning how to do the Haka during Dance and constructed our own fitness circuits and played football in PE. In Science we have looked at how to classify living things and the characteristics of each.

The year 6s undertook Sports Leadership Training which will stand them in great stead for the future and the Year 5s acted scenes from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at Brannel School. This was a great event and we are exceptionally proud of their achievements.

World Book Day gave us the opportunity to dress as our favourite book characters, to read our favourite books and to share cookies and hot chocolate.

Class 4 have had some excellent sporting successes in not only cluster schools Netball and Football matches, but also in Cross Country; well done to all of you who took part!

We are very much looking forward to continuing our sport and our learning when we return to school and I know that whenever and wherever that is, we will be very happy to see each other again!
