A Roman soldier visits Bosvigo!

Last week, Marcus surprised Classes 6, 7 and 8 by spending the day with us. He had heard that our topic was The Romans and decided to share his experience of life in Roman Britain. Marcus had been a soldier for 20 years and was looking forward to returning to Rome in order to have a family. (Roman soldiers are not allowed to get married!)

Marcus taught us to identify the different parts of his uniform and trained us to march as a group, throw javelins at our enemies and defend ourselves with our shields. Moving like a tortoise was the most difficult challenge and Class 6 moaned, “We were hot and we couldn’t see where we were going!” 

Everyone enjoyed playing Roman Rummy and collecting cards showing important places in Rome. “It was a bit like swapping Sainsbury’s cards,” Class 7 and 8 said.

Perhaps things were not so different two thousand years ago!

Lego Lunar Workshop.

Last Wednesday 5 lucky Lego Club members attended a ‘Lego Lunar day’ at ‘The Entertainer’ in Truro to celebrate the Apollo II moon landing 50 years ago. The children enjoyed a fantastic day, working together to build the International Space Station which they got to bring back to school! The fabulous team at ‘The Entertainer’ told us lots of facts about the famous moon landing over the course of the day. Thank you to all the staff at ‘The Entertainer’ for such a wonderful opportunity.


Year 5 London Day 3

Well done to our wonderful group of Year 5s, who have been a joy to be with this week. Today we walked 11 miles around a warm and sunny London and even took on the challenge of the Covent Garden underground steps – all 193 of them!

We are back at the boat and are getting ready to pack and then relax with a film. There’s still plenty of energy and excited chatter, but we’ll probably sleep well tonight!
