Green Schools Project

Thanks to a £6000 Green Schools Our Future grant, we have begun an exciting project to bring wildlife into our all-too-grey Key Stage 2 playground.
With the help of some lovely volunteers last Saturday and some super-keen Class 10 pupils this week, we have been able to complete our first planter complete with a young grisilinia hedge.

Over the coming weeks, we will be building further planters around the boundary, as well as installing a living wall, a wildlife pond, a minibeast haven, a (very small!) wildflower meadow and hopefully a willow den. If you would like to help with our project, please let the office know, as FOBSA are arranging working groups on some Saturday mornings and Thursdays after school.

Year 6 Quad Kids at Penair School

On the Friday before half term our Year 6 children took part in their first sports competition in over a year when they went to Penair School for a Quad Kids event. No other schools were there on this occasion (they competed on separate days), but the children had great fun challenging themselves and one another.

Miss Hinton and the Penair Sports Leaders did a super job of running the event and all the 40 children who participated can be proud of their efforts. There were medals awarded for the top three point-scoring boys and girls, which were as follows:

Boys: Jasper (1st), Felix (2nd), Hayden (3rd)

Girls: Cara (1st), Laila (2nd), Ellie (3rd)

There were also special awards given out by the Sports Leaders, which were…

Great teamwork: Hugo and Oscar

Supporting a team-mate across the line: Ethan H

Most improved athlete: Robin

 

 

Year 1 Camp – Day 1

We’re only in Threemilestone, but the internet signal is very weak, so photos may be limited.

Our lovely Year 1s have had a great day playing on Porthtowan Beach. They’ve settled into camp, filled their tummies with tea and are all in their sleeping bags listening to Mrs O’Kane’s bedtime stories.

So far, so good!

 

Year 4 Camp – Day 2

We’ve had another great day and have just finished our camp fire activity. Today we were back to the Lizard to complete our rotation of coasteering, sea kayaking and woodland adventure. The weather was fab and even though tomorrow is our last day of camp, we’re really looking forward to surfing at Porthtowan.

Cross-country at Penair School

On Friday, 45 Bosvigo runners went to Penair School to take part in the cluster-wide cross-country competition. The children from Years 4, 5 and 6 competed brilliantly in soggy conditions and can all be proud of their efforts.

With the top 8 runners from each race qualifying for the next level of competition at Pool Academy, we were delighted to see 11 children make it through. Particular congratulations to Jasper and Cara for coming first in the Year 5 boys and girls races respectively, as well as Hannah (2nd), Xavier (3rd) and Arthur (4th) for their top 5 placings.

Year 5 Life Skills workshops

This week our Year 5 children attended a series of workshops led by local services including Devon and Cornwall Police, Great Western Railways and Cornwall Council. The children were really interested in learning how these services work to keep us safe and also how we can keep ourselves the right side of the law!
