Peacocks - Year 3/4

Miss Nagy


One of my favourite books growing up has to be Heidi by Johanna Spyri. I used to love the idea of living in the mountains, just like Heidi (I am sure it's reason I now love going hiking, my most recent holidays being trekking across various mountain ranges all over Europe). The main character, Heidi, is the caring, courageous and funny main character of the story, someone I always related to as a child and I feel she really taught me the value of being a good friend.

I love to read. It takes you to places you may never go and on adventures you may never have. My favourite books are fictional detective style books; reading about all the clues and how they solved the crime. At Christmas, I bought a Kindle which I love as the library is endless! Happy reading!

It’s great to see the children back after their sunny half term break. This half term in Science we are looking at plant reproduction.

In History we will study the history of Charlestown. We are hoping to visit Charlestown later this term including a tour of the Shipwreck centre.

In Geography the children will learn about how different types of beaches are made and in RE we will look at how the people of Cornwall mark significant events.

In our Maths lessons we will start by looking at the properties of different shapes.

The writing unit will look at the story of Nelson the Humpback Whale written by Cornish Author Ellie Jackson and fits in with our theme this first week back of protecting our planet.

As always if you have any problems please do get in contact.
