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!

Christmas Party with our Buddies

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!

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!
