Godrevy

 
Welcome to Godrevy

Miss Shaw, Mrs Mckie and Mrs Tate welcome you to Godrevy Class -Year 3 and 4

This term Godrevy will be studying ‘Myths and Magic’. Our classroom has been transformed into a mythical wonderland with a dragon swooping across the ceiling and a wonderful castle for our reading area. Have a look at the medium term planner to see what we will be learning this term. The children will have an amazing time learning all about King Arthur, Merlin and the Sword in the Stone.

 Don’t forget to check our class page to see updates of our learning.

If you have any questions about our class please feel free to arrange to speak to Miss Shaw.

 Godrevy class is an environment where all children are encouraged to learn through exciting topics.

Godrevy class work closely with Camborne school and regularly visit the NEXUS Science centre, here we further our knowledge and understanding of different topics through fun and interactive workshops.

Within class we use Hamilton Trust, White Rose Mastery Math and contributions from the children's ideas to plan our lessons and activities. To find more information on our current topic please have a look at our topic plan.

The inspiration for the website was ‘The Millennium Book for Cornwall’, produced by the Cornwall Heritage Trust and launched in 2000 by HRH The Prince of Wales. 17,000 copies of the Book were given freely to schoolchildren in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. Lt Col Philip Hills, Chairman of the Cornwall Heritage Trust, said: “The Millennium Book introduced a whole generation of young people to Cornish history. However, we know that young people today learn in different ways, particularly online, and we wanted to create a resource that could help with that learning”.
