Mothecombe Class (KS2)
Welcome to Mothecombe class’ home page!
This term, we are learning all about 'Alchemy Island'.
"Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears..."
- The Tempest, William Shakespeare
It's time to suspend your disbelief and open your mind. We're going on a magical journey to Alchemy Island!
Can you find the gold hidden deep within the Island's mysterious landscape? The only way is to study the map, unravel the riddle and begin your adventure.
On the way, you must do all you can to learn about gold and master the ancient art of alchemy. Be creative and try to impress the Island's team of ace alchemists! Will they praise your scientific expertese?
What if there were a video game version of Alchemy Island? Could you compose a stunning soundtrack to bring this mysterious landscape to life?
You've got your map, co-ordinates and everything else you need to make your way across Alchemy Island.
Don't forget to pack your imagination!
Got your suitcase ready? Then let the journey begin...
Our teacher is Mr Armley-Jones. In KS2 our learning is never tied to a particular environment. You’ll catch us taking advantage of our beautiful surroundings in forest school, writing instructional texts about our collages in the classroom, taking part in capture the flag at the field or learning how to code and design games in computing.
Homework – Homework will be handed out with a set of spellings on a Friday and due back in on a Wednesday.
Uniform - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months and also please encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.
We are always looking for help in and around the classroom (PE, Art, reading, swimming) so please get in touch if you can lend a helping hand.
