Arctic Antics!

KS1 are learning about the Arctic this term and we are finding out some exciting facts about the countries, life and animals above the Arctic circle.  To help our understanding of the environment in the Arctic this week all 90 children in KS1 put on their winter clothes and travelled to Eden for some ice play.  Despite the inclement weather we were very lucky to see the sun shine as we arrived.  Luckily the ice in the rink did not melt – it was cold and wet, just like the Arctic.   We all had so much fun playing with sledges, rocking horses, ride on toys and much more – even the adults joined in!  We also saw some interesting plants and sculptures as we walked through the site.  See below for just a taste of the fun!

 

 

Bosvigo into County finals!

Congratulations to our football team, who played in the Cornwall Schools FA open competition at Wadebridge Primary Academy and qualified for the County finals later this month.

Playing against excellent opposition, we came second overall with two wins and a draw from our four games. The team played its best football of the season and worked very hard, thoroughly deserving their qualification.

Football vs Mount Hawke

Congratulations to both our league and friendly teams, who won their respective matches against Mount Hawke School last night.

Our league team raced to a 3-0 lead in the first half, but the young Mount Hawke pulled one goal back and a close second half ended with the score at 3-1. Remaeus, Finn and Alfie were the scorers for Bosvigo.

Our friendly match was keenly played between two evenly matched teams, but Bosvigo came out on top thanks to great goals by Liam and Finley.

Our season continues next Monday when we make the short journey to St Mary’s hoping to make it three wins out of four.

Netball Tournament at Truro School

Today we headed off to Truro High School to take part in a High 5 Netball Tournament. There was excitement and nervous anticipation as it was the first competitive netball game for some of our players. We played a total of 5 games and grew in confidence and ability with each game. Despite losing our first 2 games, the girls showed a great team spirit, determination and resilience. We went on to win our next 2 games but tired towards the end and lost our final game.

Well done Bosvigo! – Milly, Matilda, Elsie, Amelia, Aurie, Iris and Thea.

All things Blackberries!

Over the last couple of weeks, Foundation Stage have been learning about Autumn. During our Forest Schools adventures, we have been collecting leaves and picking blackberries! When we returned to school we used our blackberries in many different ways including: making apple and blackberry crumble, using blackberries to paint and using the juices as dye to create tie dye cloths.

Football vs Devoran

On Monday night we made a brilliant start to this year’s football league with a 4-0 win at Devoran School. The team played some fabulous football, with Remaeus (2), Michael and Liam our goal scorers.

Following the league match, we enjoyed a friendly game with Devoran and this was a chance for many to play their first game for the school. After being 2-0 down at half time, Devoran scores three goals in the second half to clinch the win. Torrunn and Sam were our goal scorers in this match.

Truro in Bloom

On Friday, a number of Bosvigo students went to Archbishop Benson School to attend the 2018 Truro in Bloom Awards and receive prizes for their entries.

We were delighted to learn that we had also been chosen as the overall school winners this year. The judges said this was due to the large number of high quality entries from Bosvigo children. Well done to everyone who took part and in particular to our winners on the night.

Bosvigo’s Buddies

Foundation Stage met their Year 6 Buddies for the first time last week which they thoroughly enjoyed. The Year 6s very kindly read them each a story whilst they both enjoyed their ginger bread men which Foundation Stage cooked earlier in the week!
