Ahoy there!


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!

Holi festival fun in KS1!

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!

Primary Netball League

Our Netball team played their final match in the league this week at Penair school, against Archbishop Benson. It was a nail-biting game to watch! After a slow start, ABB were in the lead 2-0 after the first quarter. By half time Bosvigo had scored 2 goals to equalise. Both teams were equally matched, defending and attacking well and taking turns to take the lead! ABB pipped us at the post with a 6-5 win at full time. Well done to all the team who played brilliantly- Milly, Elsie, Aurie, Amelia, Iris and Thea.

Bollywood dancing in KS1!

Yesterday KS1 were lucky enough to have a Bollywood workshop. Each class learnt a dance routine with scarves and traditional Indian music. At the end of the day they performed their routines to an audience. It looks like they all had a fabulous time!

Celebrating Chinese New Year

This week Class 1 and Class 2 have been learning all about Chinese New Year. On Monday we began our celebrations by going to Xen Noodle Bar to sample some Chinese cuisine. An array of delicious dishes were on offer: prawn crackers; mini spring rolls and breaded chicken bites; noodles and chicken followed by sweet and sour chicken with rice. The children savoured every bit of their lovely meal. Our trip back up the hill to school was a little slower than our walk down! Many guests and staff at the restaurant were quick to praise the children for their wonderful ‘Molly Manners’. A big thank you to Xen Noodle Bar for such a wonderful afternoon!

Primary Netball League Week 3

This week proved to be tough competition with Bosvigo losing both their games against St Agnes and Threemilestone. Despite losing we continued to push ourselves and try our best and, as always, the girls were a credit to Bosvigo. Well done girls for a great team effort.

Primary Netball League Week 2

This week our netball team played a match against Truro High School. We played well with energy and determination. We struggled to score but defended well to minimise Truro High’s lead, which was 5 – 0 at half time. Bosvigo persevered and continued to defend well, upping their game and giving it their all. After a great game of netball the final score was 6 – 0. Well done to all Bosvigo’s players- Milly, Matilda, Aurie, Elsie, Amelia, Thea and Iris.

A big Thank You to the Yak and Yeti!

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.

Primary Netball League

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.

Maths on the Playground

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!
