St Wenn School Turtles
Welcome to the Turtles Class page.
A huge welcome to everyone in KS1. I hope we all had a lovely break. The term didn't start exactly how we had planned, however you are all amazing and doing a fantastic job.
I am so excited to introduce you to our new online learning platform Showbie. It enables us to increase student and family engagement and provide timely feedback.
By completing home learning tasks children will improve their thinking and memory skills; develop positive study skills and habits; take more responsibility and leadership of their learning; review and practice skills and get ready for future learning in class.
Just a little message to keep you all going....
Despite the change in where we are learning. We are super excited to still begin our new topic....
'Africa - is is all the same?'
Have a look at our class topic web to see what we will be learning in each subject.
Topic Web - Spring 2021

As always we appreciate the consistent support from parents especially with reading.
"By reading to children, you provide them with a deep understanding about their world and fill their brains with background knowledge. They then use this acquired background knowledge to make sense of what they see, hear, and read, which aids their cognitive development."
Please upload any reading to our online reading record on Showbie.
*School is currently open for keyworker children so if you need to change or collect any books please contact me to arrange this.*
Turtles staff are Miss Wheeler (Teacher)
Mrs Ward (Teaching Assistant).
