St Columb Major Academy is now open for Keyworker and vulnerable children

Week ending 02.03.18

Well what an interesting week it has been! Thank you for all of your support with picking children up early on Wednesday and with the school being closed on Thursday and Friday. I have seen some fantastic photos on DOJO of all the snow some of you have had and I have been very much snowed in at home too! 
This week we started to learn about one of our explorers who was the first female pilot to fly solo around the world! Amelia Earhart has captured this children's attention and they have done a fantastic job remember facts about her - ask your child if they can tell you a fact. On Wednesday before the snow came in we had started writing a biography about Amelia Earhart which we will continue now next week instead. 
In maths with a link to our topic of explorers we have been learning about position and direction, directing each other around the playground, creating treasure maps and recognising right angles on a car journey map. We have been using language including clockwise and anti clockwise, left and right and a quarter, half or whole turn. 
Whilst the snowy weather came in on Wednesday we began to watch UP which we will be looking at in more detail towards the end of this term in literacy.
I hope you have enjoyed the snowy days and wrapped up warm, it will continue to be cold next week so please still send in scarves, gloves and hats with warm coats. 
Monday the 5th March is St Pirans day when we will be painting Cornish scenes and learning about St Piran.
