Road Safety

This week Maple Class have been learning about road safety. A very important topic at the moment for our school. As part of this they went out and about in the village to practise crossing roads safely. This was linked to the charity Brake who promote road safety. All the children received a certificate. Thanks to Mr Platts and Mr Whetter who accompanied the class on the walk.

Y5 Adventures

Year 5s have had a great time coming back together as a year group. They went to Pool Academy for ‘The Big Dig’ and had a surfing day with Global Boarders, They had a fantastic time at both. Miss Clarke went surfing with them and she said how impressed she was with all of the children. They demonstrated resilience and were very brave, with many managing to stand on a surf board for the very first time.

Working with St Mary’s School

Recently St. Mary’s School Council wrote to us asking if we could help them to do a beach clean. They knew that we are a ‘Plastic Free School’ and we work hard at looking after the environment so felt we could help them do the same. They also wanted to share with us the outdoor learning work that they are doing. On Monday Mrs Pamplin, Miss Rundle and Mrs Kerslake took the school council to the forest school that is based at St Mary’s School in Truro. It was a great experience getting the children together and whilst there, we gained lots of ideas of how we could develop our bark area. On Tuesday they came to us to have lunch and then Miss Rundle and Mrs Kerslake took our school council and their school council on a joint beach clean. Miss Rundle commented on how well the children got on and how great it was tackling and discussing environmental issues together. We hope that we can build further links with the school in the future.

 

Music Day

We have had a wonderfully noisy day today! Today three musicians came to the school to run our Music Day. All the children were involved in a variety of workshops. We started with learning a song together and ended the day with the children performing to each other. The children really enjoyed it and gained so much from the experience. Hopefully as a result some of them might decide to learn to play an instrument. Thanks to the PTA for funding this event and to Becky McKenzie who instigated a meeting with the Cornwall Music Service which led to this.

Eden Project

Sycamore Class had a wonderful time at Eden this week. A huge thank-you to Mrs Wickett and Miss Rundle for organising this trip and to all the adults who accompanied them. They loved exploring the biomes and took part in a great workshop. As always the children behaved beautifully and represented our school so well.
