Mrs Barber, Mrs Backhouse and Mrs McKie welcome you to Poldhu Class!
Into the Woods

Exciting things have been happening over the Easter break. Our classroom has transformed into an enchanted woodland, and some strange creatures have been spotted in our garden! We are looking forward to getting back into the classroom to explore and investigate and go 'Into the Woods!'

Throughout this term we will be getting creative, making our own woodland creatures and building a habitats for them.  We will be going on trips to our local woods, where we be looking for a special creature who is brown with purple prickles and has knobbly knees!

We will also be growing our own butterflies and learning about how to take care of living things around us. We have some very special visitors in our class garden and are looking forward to receiving letters and challenges from them. 


Within the early years, we always follow the interests of the children and cannot wait to see where their imaginations take us next.

Within class we follow 'Read, Write Inc' phonics scheme, allowing all children to access and practise their sounds and become confident and competent readers. If you wish to find any more information on our current topics and curriculum please look at our topic web and class timetable.

We have been hunting for mini beasts in our garden.
We launched our topic with a visit to Tanglewood Secret Gardens.
We went blackberry picking and made a delicious crumble!
We have been talking about our bodies and exploring our senses at the Godolphin Bare Foot Trail!

Our new story map 'The Scarecrows Wedding' written by Julia Donaldson.
After reading our class story 'The Three Little Pigs' we have been building our own houses outside using different resources.
Whilst exploring Autumn, we discussed hibernating animals. Reading the story 'Don`t Hog the Hedge'. In class we made hedgehogs out of clay and then made them their own comfy homes to hibernate in for the winter.
We visited Trevaskis Farm to learn all about Harvest. Picking vegetables, printing patterns and even eating own home made bread for snack. We have used the apples we picked to make a crumble!
Taste testing!! We have been very busy cutting up lots of different fruit to feel, smell and taste the differences. Using our senses!
