Arctic Antics!

KS1 are learning about the Arctic this term and we are finding out some exciting facts about the countries, life and animals above the Arctic circle.  To help our understanding of the environment in the Arctic this week all 90 children in KS1 put on their winter clothes and travelled to Eden for some ice play.  Despite the inclement weather we were very lucky to see the sun shine as we arrived.  Luckily the ice in the rink did not melt – it was cold and wet, just like the Arctic.   We all had so much fun playing with sledges, rocking horses, ride on toys and much more – even the adults joined in!  We also saw some interesting plants and sculptures as we walked through the site.  See below for just a taste of the fun!

 

 

Netball Tournament at Truro School

Today we headed off to Truro High School to take part in a High 5 Netball Tournament. There was excitement and nervous anticipation as it was the first competitive netball game for some of our players. We played a total of 5 games and grew in confidence and ability with each game. Despite losing our first 2 games, the girls showed a great team spirit, determination and resilience. We went on to win our next 2 games but tired towards the end and lost our final game.

Well done Bosvigo! – Milly, Matilda, Elsie, Amelia, Aurie, Iris and Thea.

All things Blackberries!

Over the last couple of weeks, Foundation Stage have been learning about Autumn. During our Forest Schools adventures, we have been collecting leaves and picking blackberries! When we returned to school we used our blackberries in many different ways including: making apple and blackberry crumble, using blackberries to paint and using the juices as dye to create tie dye cloths.

Bosvigo’s Buddies

Foundation Stage met their Year 6 Buddies for the first time last week which they thoroughly enjoyed. The Year 6s very kindly read them each a story whilst they both enjoyed their ginger bread men which Foundation Stage cooked earlier in the week!

 

Foundation Stage: Forest Schools

Today Foundation Stage practised putting on their brand new muddy puddle suits and their wellies so that we could explore Bosvigo’s outdoor environment. Some children climbed trees, we all played parachute games and most importantly everyone had lots and lots of fun!

Y6 Surf Cadet Day

Year 6 were lucky enough to be invited to a Surf Cadet day by St Agnes Surf Lifesaving Club where they were able to develop their knowledge of how to keep safe in the sea. The sun and Y6 smiles were shining throughout the day – a brilliant time was had by all! Here are just a few of the many pictures for you to have a look at.
