Welcome to Towan class
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff and children at St Columb Major ACE Academy for welcoming me to this wonderful warm and friendly school. Towan class have a fantastic approach to learning and are earning a tremendous amount of dojo's on a daily basis for excellent conduct and work ethic.
We started the term last week with an introduction to place value in Maths and refreshing aspects of addition, subtraction and multiplication and methods used. In Literacy, we recapped grammatical elements such as verbs, adverbs, determiners, prepositions, adjectives and pronouns and put these into practise within structured sentences.
We have also made a start this week on our class poem by Pie Corbett and the children have thoroughly enjoyed choosing a favourite verse to act out in pairs in front of their peers. We had a lengthy class discussion about our knowledge and understanding of WW2, which is our main focus in History and the children thoroughly enjoyed creating their own design of an air raid shelter thinking very carefully about the essential items that they would need in order to survive for a lengthy period of time.
