Quad Kids at Carn Brea

On Wednesday, a team of Year 6 children took part in an area Quad Kids competition.

Each athlete completed four events in the glorious sunshine and our team had a great time competing against children from across mid-Cornwall.

Primary Science Quality Mark

Today we were informed that we have successfully achieved the Primary Science Quality Mark at Silver level.

Over the last 12 months, Mrs Vigurs-Berry, our Science leader, has worked extremely hard with our teachers and together they have taken our science curriculum on an exciting journey that has led to science once again becoming a favourite subject for many children.

We are only just beginning with our development of science at Bosvigo and look forward to building on the progress of the last 12 months.

Touch Rugby at Penair

On Friday, we took two teams to take part in a local touch rugby tournament at Penair School. Both our teams played with commitment and enthusiasm and our ‘A’ team were unbeaten throughout the competition, finishing second overall and qualifying for the Mid-Cornwall Finals at Redruth RFC in a couple of weeks. Congratulations to all our players.

Big Pedal 2018

What a fabulous turnout for our Big Pedal day – Bosvigo has never seen so many bikes and scooters! With 85 bikes and 50 scooters this was easily our best Big Pedal day ever. Well done to everyone who got involved.

During the day we offered cycle skills sessions to children in Years 3 and 4 and were really pleased to have 50 children take up the offer. Nick passed on some great tips to our young riders and they will certainly have needed a rest after making countless laps of the field!

A big thank you to Nick for spending the day with us and for providing the spot prizes and reflective snap band rewards.

For those who would like another fun riding experience, we will be hosting our second FOBSA Bosvigo Bike Ride at the Wheal Jane Cycle Circuit on Sunday 20th May from 3pm to 5pm. Further information is available from the school office.

LKS2 Cake Sale for Shosha

The LKS2 Cake Sales last week were very popular and raised £172.42!

This money will be sent to Shosha Aidee (an ex-pupil of Bosvigo) to help her fulfill her dream of visiting the Amazon rain forest in Peru this summer.

LKS2 enjoyed meeting with Shosha last term and are now waiting impatiently for her emails and photos to arrive.

Thank you very much to everyone who baked, bought or ate!

National finals for Nora and Rory

Congratulations to Year 6’s Nora and Rory, who last weekend participated in the Butterfly Schools Individual Table Tennis National Finals in Nottingham.

Participating for the first time at this level, Rory competed extremely well, winning one game in his group and learning a huge amount from the experience of high level competition.

For Nora, this was the second time competing at the national finals and she went two steps further than previously, qualifying from her group, winning her final 16 match and reaching the quarter finals.

Both Rory and Nora have set a superb example and have demonstrated to everyone at Bosvigo just how much can be achieved with dedication to practice and the will to improve. Well done!

Cornwall Spring Games

On Friday, 6 children from Years 5 and 6 represented Bosvigo at the annual Cornwall Spring Games biathlon. The event requires a 200m swim in the pool followed by an 1800m cross-country run.

Luca, Callum, Georgia, Nora, Millie and Ava had a great time and enjoyed the challenge of combining events. Well done!

Football vs St Agnes

On Wednesday we took two teams to Richard Lander School to play a league match and a friendly match against St Agnes School.

All teams found the super-fast Astro pitch tough to play on, but got to grips with the surface in time and played some good football. Our Year 6 team took an early lead in the league fixture with a super goal by Callum, but St Agnes played superbly in the second half to win 5-1. In the friendly fixture, our Year 5s has the best of the play and took the lead with a great solo goal by Remaeus, but St Agnes grabbed a late equaliser and the match was drawn.

Well done to all involved in what were probably our last football matches of the year.

Coose Trannack 2018

On 17th March, 24 Bosvigo pupils competed in the 2018 Coose Trannack Cross Country event near Helston.  Some of the worst weather conditions in recent memory couldn’t dampen the spirits of our determined athletes and the effort and commitment shown by runners, parents and the gentlemen in the bottom field helping to push cars through a rapidly developing quagmire was extremely impressive.  I can honestly say that everyone gave 100 percent and we were very proud of all our pupils.

In terms of achievement some notable finishes included Jasper Boeuf (Year 3) and Rosa Canavan-King (Foundation) coming second in their races, Arthur Canavan-King coming 8th in the Year 2 race and Mali Jones, Seffie Wilding and Martha Wade finishing 5th, 7th and 10th respectively in the Year 4 race.

Farm and Country Class 6 & 8

This week, Classes 6 and 8 went to the farm and country event at Wadebridge. We set off at 9 o’ clock in the morning, it took three quarters of an hour to get there, but we arrived sooner rather than later! Immediately we spotted adorable animals and smelt the smell of manure, which is how we knew we had arrived.

Our first activity was making eggy bread; once it had cooked, we were allowed to eat it…mmm delicious. Manu from Class 8, got to cook some of the eggy bread. She said, “I want to be a chef when I am older!”

Next we split into our three groups (I am sorry I cannot tell you all the activities there were so many!) My favourite activity was the ice cream, we learnt all about the process of making it and then we got to eat it. Yummy. (Murray Class 8)

Some of the other activities were: apple pressing, butchery, grain milling, pasty making, eggs and chicks, a variety of animals, a milk parlour, lots of farm machinery, potato planting, bee keeping, plastic tide and many more.

We had a jam-packed day of learning about Cornish farming from many different aspects and stages. What a fun trip!
