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.
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
It’s super quiet at Tomperrow – everyone seems to be fast asleep, so there was time to search for some signal and share some photos from Day 1 of camp.
Click the link below and you should hopefully be taken to a photo compilation.
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 may be tired today, but they had an awesome time on camp. Mrs Critchley has put together a photo story to share their experiences, which you can see by clicking on the link below.
Well done to all our Year 5s and 6s who took part in the Cornish Pirates Tag Rugby festival today. There were no scores recorded but we had a great time and scored some super tries!
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!
