Year 3 and 4 shine at football tournament

On Friday we took a Year 3 and a Year 4 team to a football tournament at Penair. The teams were put into separate groups and each won their first three games, setting up the prospect of an all-Bosvigo final. Unfortunately, our Year 3 team lost their final group game to St Mary’s and this meant that our two teams met in the semi-finals.

In a close game, our Year 4s came out on top, winning 2-0 and setting up a final with St Mary’s. Now tiring, our team worked very hard to win 1-0 and were delighted to become the tournament champions.

Both teams played brilliantly on the day and showed that Bosvigo has a bright footballing future ahead.

Sports Leader training for Year 6

On Friday, 20 children from Year 6 went to Penair School to be trained by Miss Hinton as Sports Leaders.

Our group had a fantastic time learning new activities and developing their leadership skills and Miss Hinton said that she and the Penair Sports Leaders really enjoyed working with our Year 6s.

Well done to all our new Sports Leaders – we are looking forward to seeing you put your training to good use after half term!

Football vs Archbishop Benson

On Monday we finally kicked off our rain-delayed football season with a league game and a friendly match at Archbishop Benson School.

In pouring rain, our league team lost 5-2, but battled hard and showed a lot of promise with great goals from Amari and Liam. Over the hedge, our friendly team were delighted to start the season with a 4-0 win (Jasper and Levan sharing the goals in this one).

A Roman soldier visits Bosvigo!

Last week, Marcus surprised Classes 6, 7 and 8 by spending the day with us. He had heard that our topic was The Romans and decided to share his experience of life in Roman Britain. Marcus had been a soldier for 20 years and was looking forward to returning to Rome in order to have a family. (Roman soldiers are not allowed to get married!)

Marcus taught us to identify the different parts of his uniform and trained us to march as a group, throw javelins at our enemies and defend ourselves with our shields. Moving like a tortoise was the most difficult challenge and Class 6 moaned, “We were hot and we couldn’t see where we were going!” 

Everyone enjoyed playing Roman Rummy and collecting cards showing important places in Rome. “It was a bit like swapping Sainsbury’s cards,” Class 7 and 8 said.

Perhaps things were not so different two thousand years ago!

Lego Lunar Workshop.

Last Wednesday 5 lucky Lego Club members attended a ‘Lego Lunar day’ at ‘The Entertainer’ in Truro to celebrate the Apollo II moon landing 50 years ago. The children enjoyed a fantastic day, working together to build the International Space Station which they got to bring back to school! The fabulous team at ‘The Entertainer’ told us lots of facts about the famous moon landing over the course of the day. Thank you to all the staff at ‘The Entertainer’ for such a wonderful opportunity.
