On 3 consecutive days the Yak and Yeti welcomed Classes 3, 4 and 5 for lunch. The chef had cooked a range of traditional Indian food and the children were met with a delicious aroma and sampled some new, interesting tastes. Food included Chicken Tikka, Onion bhajis, Chicken Korma, a spicier lamb curry (which lots of children enjoyed!), pilau rice, naan bread and, of course, Papadoms and chutneys. Everyone ate well and returned to school with full bellies! Thank you to the Yak and Yeti for making us feel so welcome and for inspiring us to learn more about India.
7 enthusiastic girls from Year 5 and 6 went to Penair School this week to play netball in the first round of the Primary Netball League. Our first match was against St Mary’s. Bosvigo demonstrated super passing and catching skills, as well as footwork skills, resulting in a well deserved 2-1 win. Our energy and supportive team spirit secured us another win in the second game against Devoran, 1-0.
Well done to all the girls- Matilda, Aurie, Amelia, Iris, Elsie, Milly and Thea, for representing Bosvigo with commitment and energy.
Today Foundation Stage were outside on the playground practising their number formation. Miss Smith held up a giant numicon shape, everybody had to shout out the number and then run and write the number on a space in the playground. We had lots of fun and wrote some amazing numbers!
Thanks to some great fundraising by FOBSA this term, we have purchased a class set of Everblocks, which are large outdoor construction blocks that can be used to build whatever young minds can imagine.
The play set includes 70 Full Blocks, 68 Line Blocks, 60 Half Blocks, 58 Quarter Blocks, 60 Single Lug Blocks, 20 Full Finishing Caps, & 16 Quarter Finishing Caps and should arrive soon after the start of the new term.
Thank you to everyone who kindly donated items for the toy sale held in the Children’s Centre last week. With a further sale at this week’s Christmas Fair, we raised £90 for the St Petroc’s Society.
We enjoyed a wonderful party this afternoon with our Year 6 Buddies and were all wearing the special party hats that we made at Buddy Time on Friday. When we had all swarmed into the hall the party began: we started with a game of pass the parcel, next up was musical statues and finally musical bumps. After all of this fun, we had worked up an appetite and were ready for our delicious sweet and savoury party snacks!
It has been a busy few days for the Bosvigo Choir, with two Christmas performances. Here are the children’s recounts of their visits to the St Petroc’s service at Truro Methodist Church and Amberley House:
St Petroc’s Service
On December 7th Bosvigo choir sand ‘Do you hear what I hear’ and ‘Candle in the Window’ at St Petrocs Christmas Carol Service at Truro Methodist Church. There were lots of people at the service and another school choir who also sang two songs. The carol service was to celebrate Christmas and think about people who are homeless and how to help them. As well as our own songs, we also sang lots of carols. It was a great evening and many thanks to our lovely singing teacher Ms Oram.

On the 7th December 2018, Bosvigo school choir went and did a carol service at St Petrocs Church. We sung some songs called; Candle in the Window and a song called Do you hear what I hear. On the 13th December Bosvigo’s choir will also be performing at Amberly House. Choir is a relatively small group of children, but from the sound we make is like angels singing. We could do with some more children for choir. That is why we need you to join so we can make even more noise! It’s very fun and I’m sure everyone will love it!

On Thursday 13th December, KS2 Choir went to Amberly House to give a performance to its residents. Upon arrival, we set up our piano and music sheets were handed out. Then we sang 8 carols and had our audience clapping – and even singing along with us. We had lots of lovely comments and we were each given a jam doughnut! It was very exciting (especially for some of our youngest members who had never performed before!) Many a tear was shed as we sang the only song which was not a Christmas carol: A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman movie. Well done choir and thank you to Ms Oram.

The whole school gathered together on Wednesday for a special Christmas assembly led by Matt from Truro Baptist Church.
We played Pass the Parcel, during which Matt reminded us of the Christian message behind the characters and events in the Christmas story.
On Wednesday 5th December a boys and a girls team attended the Cornwall County Under 11s Table Tennis Team Championships. Both teams consisted of solely Year 4 and 5 children so they were the youngest teams competing in both categories.
They rose to the challenge and all performed well above their normal standard. They walked away with silver medals in both competitions and we look forward to returning next year, following a further year of practise and improvement, and attempting to go one better!
ShelterBox says thanks to Bosvigo for raising £339.40!
Thank you to everyone who baked and ate cakes, created designer cards or experienced being homeless outdoors.
We are happy to have made a difference.
