Unfortunately we can't ask you to come in at the moment for our usual 'Meet the Teacher' session. Instead, please watch this video which provides information about our class and how you can support your child at home.
The weather has been great this week and this has allowed us to continue some of our lessons outdoors.
We have been busy with PE this week, completing orienteering challenges. The children have been busy learning 8 compass points and following a ground map to navigate their way to different cones. We have also been reading outside too.
In English, the children have been learning how to write a formal letter, using the features of vocabulary, layout and revisiting grammar and punctuation. We have now re-established 'Word of the Day' which is taken from their year 5 and 6 spelling list.
In maths, we have been looking at place value of digits up to 1,000,000 and year 6 digits up to 10,000,000. They have been reasoning and solving problems to help them in their understanding of such large numbers.
On Friday we had our virtual whole school assembly. It was lovely to see the other class bubbles on the screen and share our person of the week with the other classes. Mrs. Hillman sang a lovely rendition of Polperro's birthday song to all the children who shared a birthday this week.
I am really looking forward to seeing all of Chaipel class for more fun and exciting learning on Monday.
Well done for this week!
WOW! What an amazing first week back at school. All the children in Chaipel class have settled in well and we have been getting to know each other. They really are a lovely class.
We have been doing lots of fun activities this week including maths games outside in the fresh air and sun to help us to recall our times tables knowledge. We have been using the text ‘Here We Are’ to help us understand the world we are living in. This has inspired us to write a poem and draw a picture about somewhere that is special to us and makes us feel happy and warm. And towards the end of the week we began looking at how the environment has changed and improved during these unusual times. This will hopefully inspire the children to write a formal letter to a government official about how we can keep these positive changes. I am looking forward to reading all their responses.
We had a lovely PE session and the children enjoyed completing an obstacle course especially when I asked them to design their own, lots of collaboration skills were needed. They had some super ideas and worked well together.
I am really looking forward to next week and seeing all their smiling, happy faces.
Our weekly PE day is on Monday. Please ensure your child's PE kit and Swimming kit is in school. The children have also chosen their reading books and have been given their reading record books too.
I hope all of you have had a lovely summer holiday and are looking forward to returning to school?
We are all looking forward to meeting you all again and hearing all about your adventures, new skills you have learnt and any news you want to share with us.
I am really excited and can't wait to get to know you all and I'm sure you are probably thinking the same about me. So let me tell you a few things. I live in Looe with my husband, youngest daughter and my dog Odie. My eldest daughter is at university, so only visits us during the holidays. I was a teacher at Polruan School before the summer holidays. I love learning outdoors (weather permitting) and my interests are gardening and growing vegetables and fruit. I love learning about history too. I am really looking forward to learning all about your interests.
For the next couple of weeks we and the whole school are going to use the text 'Here We Are' . I think it is going to be a fun, and interesting couple of weeks for us all and a good way to start the term off. See you all on Monday Morning!
