Take a look at  the learning last year in  Lynher class   (2015 - 2016)

 

Lynher Class had a brilliant day when the Ancient Greeks came to visit! We learnt lots about the history of Greece through story telling, drama, exploration of ancient artefacts, arts and crafts, and we even navigated our own great ships through rough seas!

Have a look at all the wonderful things we were doing!

Take a look at our poetry unit in English! The children worked so hard each day developing a descriptive poem on a beautiful flower of their choice. They used descriptive devices such as similes, metaphors and of course lots of interesting adjectives to create some fantastic poems!

In English we learnt all about the long journey of our delicious chocolate from bean to bar!

The children worked incredibly hard on their explanation texts detailing this journey, have a read of some of them below you might just learn something!

Survival Wisdom at Mount Edgecombe

 

Wow!  What a fantastic day we had with Tessa at Mount Edgecombe.  The children went rock pooling and even though some children were scared at first, they all held a crab.  They explored the beach and found some jellyfish, which had been washed up onto the beach.  The children learnt which food is edible to eat in the wild, through playing top trumps and then going to find it.  They learnt how to make a fire and then cooked sausages and warmed marshmellows on a bigger fire.  They finished off the day with singing around the camp fire and building dens.  A great end to a wonderful year.  

Faith Fortnight

 

Over the past two weeks the children have been asking BIG QUESTIONS!  There was some very deep thinking taking place and children thought of questions such as:

  • Why can we not see you God, even though we know you are here?
  • Why do you let earthquakes and tornados happen?
  • Why did you let so many people die from Ebola?
  • Why did you create us?
  • How was the world created?

The children then answered the questions with what they thought God would say.

 

They then thought of questions to ask the Jewish and Hindu speakers about their beliefs.  The children found out about their leaders, artefacts, place of worship, sacred text, customs, festivals and their beliefs.  They then compared these to Christian beliefs by completing their own jigsaws.

 

As a class we then looked at the story of Joseph in more detail.  The children explored the feelings of the brothers through thought clouds, the brothers feelings of jealousy and created a conscious corridor of whether Joseph should forgive his brothers.  This work then culminated into writing the Joseph story through one of the brothers eyes.
