Over the past couple of weeks, Classes 1 and 2 have been learning about all the different wonderful people who help us in so many different ways! As well as an exciting visit to the fire station, we have been fortunate enough to have many visitors come into school including: a doctor, a personal trainer, a military officer, the school crossing supervisor and two nurses. A huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to come and talk to us about their jobs!
After a hearty breakfast we are ready for our day of water sports. Then I think we will all sleep well tonight!
Fed, watered and settled. We are looking forward to a cooked breakfast, a better weather forecast and a day full of water sports. Good night!
The year 3 campers have arrived safely and already completed their first activity- either indoor climbing or team building in the adventure quarry. Despite a short downpour spirits are high. Everyone has settled into their rooms and are looking forward to activity 2.
On our first day of the Summer Term, Foundatin Stage were very kindly invited to plant some trees in Redannick Park. We planted ten apple and two pear trees. Hopefully they will be bearing fruit for years to come for the whole community. Thank you so much to the organisers and helpers for such a lovely morning!
This week classes 3, 4 and 5 were all entertained by a circus show sharing circus skills, magic and music. We then took part in a workshop and learnt some circus skills ourselves! We had great fun dancing with scarves and ribbons, juggling, balancing, plate spinning, hula hooping, tumbling and so much more!
To end the day we put on a performance to show our new skills. A big thank-you to all the parents and carers who were able to come along and be our audience. We hope we entertained you!
This week KS1 started off their Pirate topic with an exciting trip to the Maritime museum. We learnt all about pirate treasure and where it came from. We looked at pirate weapons and (carefully) held a pistol and a cutlass! We also made our own pirate ships and sailed them! It was a great day out and a fabulous stimulus for this term’s work. We have lots more to find out about!
To celebrate the end of our learning about India, KS1 took part in an extremely colourful (and messy!) Holi festival. They threw coloured powder into the air, and then at each other to celebrate friendship, fun and the colours of spring. Thank you to all the parents for providing the spare clothes and doing the extra washing and baths! The children and teachers had a wonderful time and all the mess was well worth it!
