Mrs Gilroy, Mrs Skeggs and Mr Buckley welcome you to Class 3
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.
The children drw rockpool creatures to help create our cosy rockpool - this will help inspire our rockpool artwork
Mount Everest! We will be learning about world mountain ranges in Geography.

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…
We made flint handaxes like prehistoric people, carving a piece of soap! It took a long time.

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,
Mrs Gilroy, Mr Buckley and Mrs Skeggs

Steve, the miner from South Crofty
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.
We spent our morning in the woods learning about how people would have survived during the Stone Age. We had to think about what humans really need to survive!
We went on a virtual tour of Berlin Dinosaur museum. We have learnt so much about different dinosaurs and skeletons!
This week we have been learning about the different types of rocks. We have made our own animation videos to teach others about it. Take a look!
We had a great time fossil hunting today! Not even the rain can stop us!
We have had a brilliant morning in Tehidy Woods. We acted out the story of the Sword in the Stone and looked at the formation of trees. Take a look.
