Kynance

 

Welcome to Kynance Class

 

If you step into our classroom, be sure to wear your life-jacket as things are wet and wild in Kynance this term!

Our summer topic ' Wild Water' will see us experiencing all things related to the sea, from a trip to the Maritime Museum in Falmouth to stories of Cornish shipwrecks and handling live crabs and lobsters. We will interview Cornish artist Lamorna Penrose to inquire about her preoccupation with boats and the sea, welcome the RNLI to school to advise us on beach safety and interview Cornish fishermen about their life at sea. We have a wealth of stories to learn and retell using our storytelling approach including 'The Sandhorse', by Michael Foreman and of course 'The Mousehole Cat' by Antonia Barbar. 

We plan to take our learning outside as often as weather allows, particularly to Godrevy Beach and Gwithian Nature reserve, to be as near to the subject of our learning as possible! All this will culminate in a short film which will be shown in Heartlands Film Room. We look forward to sharing this with you.

  Kynance is a class buzzing with fun and experiences, where children stretch themselves further than they imagined. Each day takes the children further along their own learning journeys, where enquiry and discovery are encouraged all the way!

 We use ideas from the Inspire Curriculum, The Literacy Shed, a Sense of Place and our own environment to scaffold our curriculum into a vibrant & enriching one which is accessible to all.
