Kynance

Welcome to Kynance Class Spring Term
 

POW!! BAM!! THWACK!!

We're in our new classroom!! Kynance has been taken over by Superheroes this term with our 'Super You' topic! Our class will be asking the question... Just what makes someone or something 'Super'? They will be digging deep to find their own 'Superhero' qualities and drawing inspiration from some real life heroes and those from recent history.

We couldn't study Superheroes without studying comic strips, inspired by Marvel and DC comics, we will be finding what makes a good comic strip and creating some of our own. We will be storytelling using a range of Superhero inspired stories such as Supertato and Traction Man and awesome films such as The Incredibles.

Our topic will incorporate finding our own superhero qualities as part of our PSHE 'Be The Best You' topic and our science will similarly explore how to keep fit, make healthy choices and be generally 'super'. We will be enlisting the help of personal trainers and raw food specialists as well as people who help us in the local community - real life superheroes. Our outdoor learning areas will serve as an outdoor gym and the stage for drama and storytelling

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.

Kynance class had a great morning at Outdoor School; taking part in a phonics hunt and bringing maths alive by making multiplication arrays in the sand.
Our Kynance superheroes visited the Minack Theatre and enjoyed a tour of this stunning landmark, before taking part in some Superhero drama workshops. The children got to perform their plays to an impromptu audience (visitors to the theatre), many of whom commented on their fantastic acting skills. 
Kynance visited Pendennis Castle as part of our history study. We learnt how Pendennis worked with St. Mawes Castle to protect Truro from invasion during the rule of King Henry VIII. We dressed up as characters who may have lived and worked in the castle, from a pot boy to an admiral.
