Godrevy

 
Welcome to Godrevy

Miss Shaw, Mrs Sicolo, Miss Drelinga and Mr Buckley welcome you to Godrevy Class -Year 3 and 4

100 Years Ago!

What was life like 100 years ago? This is the question we're hoping to explore this term.

Godrevy class are travelling back in time to explore what life was like 100 years ago. We will be exploring how children lived, went to school and the toys they played with. We will also be learning about World War One and the disaster of the Titanic. To immerse ourselves in our topic we have built a trench, a titanic, a theatre stage and the most amazing model Sopwith Camel WW1 plane that even has a working propeller (we are very proud of it). Take a look at the pictures or feel free to come and have a look!

 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.
