Oscar in ‘hair raising’ stunt to raise money for the NHS!

After hearing about someone else shaving their head for charity, Oscar from Class 8 decided that he wanted to join in. Oscar has raised £160 (including £20 of his own pocket money) to buy Easter eggs for the children and staff working on the children’s ward at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Oscar and his mum purchased and delivered them earlier this week. Sainsbury’s were wonderful and gave them £60 worth of free eggs – so they are donating this additional money to the Air Ambulance as Oscar has his name on the new helicopter and is an avid fan. Well done, Oscar, so thoughtful and we hope your head is not too cold without all that lovely blonde hair! Here’s a picture of the ‘before’ and ‘after’!

World Book Day in Foundation Stage

We celebrated ‘Word Book Day’ with our very first ERIC event (Everyone Reading in Classrooms).
Parents of children throughout the school (not just in Foundation Stage) were invited to come in and enjoy a selection of books and stories with their children.
We concluded the day with a creative session which focused on fashioning our favourite book characters out of potatoes!

‘Spring into Spring’ with Foundation Stage

Since returning from our half-term break, we have been exploring the exciting theme of spring. We have been looking for signs of spring around us and writing and drawing what we see, counting chicks in their nest and exploring books about the change in season.
Our ‘Pancake Café’ role-play area has been rather busy too, especially on Shrove Tuesday where the children have been fashioning pancakes out of play dough and creating collages depicting their favourite toppings.
The children of course enjoyed the real thing by decorating pancakes to enjoy during afternoon snack!

Kernow bys vyken!

Year 2’s are learning a Cornish dance run by the  Cornish dance school. Dressed in their black, white and gold they look just the part. Happy St. Piran’s Day!

Visit from local artist to help celebrate St Piran’s Day!

Class 8 were lucky to have a visit from local artist Sue Loydell recently.  Together we created a piece of artwork using acrylic paint and oil pastels inspired by the story of St Piran and the colour/texture of Vincent Van Gogh’s landscape paintings.  This artwork is currently being displayed in Trevails in River Street as part of Truro City Council’s St Piran’s Day Shop Window Trail.  Well done everyone and a big thank you to Sue!
