Updated June 20th 
Hello everyone, I hope you are all still safe and well, it is lovely to hear from you each week and see what you have all been up to on Class dojo, I've seen some amazing adventures and some great family pictures.
As you know I have been sending out work and activities over the past few weeks straight to your homes, so have not been placing so many resources and learning activities on here. If you would still like activities on the class web page please let me know.
Thanks 
Breaking News! 
We have a fantastic opportunity to take part in a virtual Cornwall School Games from Monday 22nd June, as the real School Games was cancelled due to C19. 
Please find information needed and resources above.The Cornwall School Games link above will explain everything, we attend each year so please, please support. 
 
 
The Cornwall Virtual School Games
Monday 22nd to Friday 26th June 2020
 
There will be a week of sports based physical activity challenges young people can get involved in.
The challenges are suitable for primary and secondary aged children and have ideas for adaptations to suit all abilities, making them inclusive for all.
 
The challenges include:
• Monday 22nd – Athletics
• Tuesday 23rd – Bowls/Boccia
• Wednesday 24th – Gymnastics
• Thursday 25th – Ball Sports
• Friday 26th - Tennis
 
As well as the above, there will also be a separate task running throughout the whole week called ‘Making up the Miles’.  This is similar to our Mile a day and the class do this with great joy and satisfaction at completing their mile, so have a go and get everyone involved, mums, dads, brothers, sisters and other family members, the more the merrier! 
This will involve walking, running, cycling, skating or scooting to collect as many miles in distance as you can. Please send any photos or videos to me and I will place on Class dojo for all to see. 
 
As well as scoring points through completing the activities, we are also looking out for other ways to reward those who are taking part in the Virtual Games.
Here are alternative ways participants can gain points for their school: Bonus points can be achieved by tagging us on Facebook @CornwallSchoolGames with any of the following:
• 1 point for a photo of you completing a challenge
• 1 point for every family member and year group teacher who tries the challenge in the photo
• 1 point for completing it in fancy dress
• 1 point for posting a video telling us how you have engaged with one of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing: Take Notice, Be Active, Give, Connect & Keep Learning
 
We have registered as a school, and will be collecting evidence of people's 'points' which they have scored across the challenges each day next week. 
These will be added together and total scores recorded too. 
 
 How do participants submit their results?•Individual participants should fill in the Cornwall Virtual School Games results form that schools should send out to them for Monday 22ndJune. The link for this form will be made available closer to the time. •This form has a page for each day’s results. The results for that day should be filled in by 4pm on that day. For example, Monday will be athletics challenges. Participants should complete their challenges and then submit their score using the results sheet. On Tuesday, they will do the same but bypass the athletics section and move onto the Bowls/Boccia section to submit their results. •There is also a page at the end to submit results for the ‘Making up the Mile’ challenge which runs throughout the week.
Scores for this challenge should be tallied up throughout the week and a final score submitted on Friday 26thbefore 4pm. •Any results that are not submitted on the correct day or after the closing deadline will not count
 
An opening ceremony video will be ready to watch on You Tube on Monday 22nd June and I will share the link here when we have access to it.

I know a lot of you continue to speak to me daily on Class Dojo,  so I will continue to add daily chats and information for learning and activities using Class Dojo, however, I wanted to add some additional fun games and websites for you to access on the class web page. 
I have added more interactive games and sites, to support you at this time. just in case you would like to do something different from what I have already set you. 
I found these the other day and it has lots of sensory activities linked to mindfulness. Take a look  https://www.firstdiscoverers.co.uk/mindfulness-activities-kids/

Welcome to Class 7

 

Class 7 is the upper class of Key Stage 3. Class 7 has 9 pupils and 4 adults. Caroline is our teacher and we also have 3 teaching assistants called Beth, Debbie and Phil. 

We are a very responsible class and as a team we decide on our class rules. This then ensures we follow our rules and help others to follow them too! We earn raffle tickets, stickers, dojos and the treat box as rewards and are often seen or heard talking about our fantastic behaviour.

We love to learn in class 7 and we really like the varied and exciting curriculum. To develop our learning further we have decided to complete weekly homework. 

At times Caroline sets us our homework on a Friday and we have a week to complete it. Our homework could be reading or a piece of work that will extend the learning we have completed in class that week. 

We earn class dojos if we complete our work on time! We hope you enjoy looking at our web page. If you would like to leave some feedback please do so, because we are always wanting to improve what we do! 

 

Meet the team!
 
The children in the class 7 have recorded what they think of the staff. We were brave enough to put them on the web page. 
We have been learning about the Royal Family. 
We researched all about the Royals and created our own Power Points 
Nightmare in Elm Class!
Pupils from Elm Class came into a Nightmare at School. 
Someone had committed a crime and they were asked to investigate who it might have been. 
They dressed as Scientific investigators, took samples and recorded their findings.
Horse Riding 
Throughout the term we go Horse Riding. It helps us with our sensory processing and emotional wellbeing. 
We spend time riding and caring for the horses. 
We LOVE it!
