Zennor Class

Zennor Class is a mixed aged class with year 4 and 5. Our teacher is Miss Fenton and our teaching assistants are Miss Baseley and Miss Whatley. We like to work in a calm and quiet environment and have a special focus on kindness.  In Zennor Class, we are always trying to work towards the Kennall Vale values.

English:

Every day we have our morning carousel and focus on handwriting, spelling, reading, SPaG and comprehension.  We mostly learn as a whole class but sometimes we work in our year groups, we are fantastic at working independently.

Spellings:

The National Curriculum identifies the sounds pupils should recognise and use in their spelling at different stages of their development. A list of words that pupils should be able to spell correctly in their writing, by the end of Lower Key Stage 2 and the end of Upper Key Stage 2. These documents can be found here: Spelling Appendix years 3 and 4 from NC 2014   Spelling Appendix years 5 and 6 from NC 2014.

Maths:

At Kennall Vale, the mastery approach for maths allows children to learn in small steps and using hands-on resources. We have introduced 10-minute maths at the beginning of each lesson to practise arithmetic. In Zennor Class, times tables are a focus

Topic:

Our topic lessons are immersive, utilising community links to support our learning. We are lucky to have Mr. Chin to teach us PE and we have a weekly music lesson from Mrs. Crow, too.

Homework:

In Zennor Class, we are expected to read each day, we use Accelerated Reader. We complete weekly homework on Abacus and MyMaths.
