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!
Forty -five saffron buns in a baker’s shop,
Golden and sweet with some currants on the top,
Along game Foundation Stage with a penny one day,
Bought a saffron bun and took it away!
Happy St. Piran’s Day!
Thank you to Rowes Bakery in Victoria Square for supplying these delicious treats.
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!
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!
