Kynance

 

Welcome to Kynance Class

 

Kynance class has been taken over by magic and mystery this term as our topic 'Enchanted Lands' opens up a world of traditional tales - wolves and woodcutters, dragons and castles and much more. 

Our topic opens with a visit to Pendennis Castle where we will learn how the use of a castle has adapted through time. We are waiting to see what happens when we add water and sunlight to our magic beans in science and in ICT we will be become programmers to guide our fairy tale character through our own enchanted lands.   

We plan to take our learning outside as often as weather allows, particularly to Godrevy Beach, Gwithian Nature reserve and Crenvor Grove, where will be trying to catch fairies using our handmade fairy catchers and to design our own castles in the sand. All this will culminate in a fantastic fairytale banquet to which our friends and family will be cordially invited. 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.

 
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.
