From Bean to Bar - The Story of Chocolate and Trade Autumn Term 2022
Lots of us enjoy a delicious chocolate bar but do we know where chocolate comes from?
In this topic Godrevy class will be following the journey of a chocolate bar. From the beans growing on a Cocoa tree in the heart of Ghana to the chocolate being on the shelves in our local supermarket. We will also explore what happens to chocolate and other food after we eat it - the science of digestion and how our bodies turn food into energy. 
We will be tasting, testing and evaluating a variety of chocolate bar flavours before choosing the finest to create delectable chocolately treats to sell at our own chocolate shop. We will use our maths skills to calculate which ingredients will make us profit and work out how much change to give to our customers. 
We are looking forward to an exciting new term!

New Term - 2022 - 2023

The Great Outdoors - from rock pool to mountain top. Summer Term 2022
Mount Everest - the closest you can get to the moon by walking...
 
Climbing a mountain is no easy feat. Dangling on a knife edge, the possibility of plummeting to one's death awaits you at every crevice, crack, avalache and ice fall. Class 3 will learn this first-hand in our new topic. Not quite the death-defying experience of mount Everest but a challenge nevertheless, the children will summit Cornwall's highest point, and learn about how mountains are formed.
 
420 metres below at sea level, they will explore the vibrant life in Cornish rockpools, inspired by the amazing artwork of Jo Polack.  https://www.jopolack.co.uk/  Developing their sewing skills further they will design and stitch sunhats suitable for our walking expedition. 
 
Class 3 have already begun their ongoing summer project at our Local Nature Reserve, Gwithian Green. We have built and installed a collection of beautiful bird boxes which we will be carefully monitoring throughout the next few months. Alongside this, our science work on habitats and living things will see us study the wildlife at Gwitihan green and present our findings in our ICT based outcome.
 
Come and visit us in our exciting new classroom and see what learning we are busy doing.
 
 

Stones and Bones - Spring Term 2022

 

The children of Godrevy class climbed into the time machine, closed the door and fastened their seatbelts. They looked at each other in nervous excitement as they saw Mrs Gilroy flick on the controls and type in the numbers. The green screen lit up and a date glowed brightly ‘1,600,000BC’. They were travelling back in time, further that they had ever gone before.

The time machine rumbled and with a jolt it began to spin. The children clung onto their seats as the enormous machine span faster. A loud whirring sound filled their ears. Everything went dark…

When the children of Godrevy class climbed unsteadily from the time machine they saw that everything was different. Their classroom had gone and they were in a wild forest full of the strange sounds of roars. A group of children were stood there, but they didn’t look like children from Gwinear school. Instead of blue uniforms, they were dressed in furs and carried long spears.

“Oh my goodness!” cried one of the children from Godrevy class. “We have arrived in the stone age!”

And this was just the beginning of the adventure…

Myths and Magic - Autumn 2021
Welcome to Godrevy class (years 3 and 4).
 
This term we are travelling back in time to discover more about the legend of King Arthur, one of the most enduring figures of British history. 
 
Legend tells us that King Arthur was born at Tintagel Castle, and we will be launching our topic with a visit to this historic castle on the rugged Cornish coast. Here we will explore the remains of the castle, re-enact the story of King Arthur and visit Merlin's cave. 
 
Once we have returned to 'present day', we will try our hand at a medieval craft - tapestry making, as well as discovering the science behind some of Merlin's modern day magic, with shadow puppets. 
 
Later in our topic we will board the Hogwart's express and step into the magical land of Harry Potter! We will explore the wonders of the wizarding world, have a go at quidditch and experiment in science with potion making. 
 
Light, shadows, spells and secrets will come alive in our exciting topic: Myths and Magic! 
 
See you soon for a magical adventure,

We had a visit from Steve who is the mine manager at South Crofty. He taught us all about modern mining in Cornwall. He showed us all about the drilling, machinery and coring which is used in Cornwall. Steve even showed us how the explosives work!
We have been exploring how sound travels through vibrations in Crenver Grove.
