As part of our Remembrance Day activities, Class 3 wrote poetry from the perspective of a soldier who was in the trenches during the Great War. To help them understand what it felt like to be a soldier, the children had the opportunity to dress up in modern-day military outfits and try ration packs. The children were amazed by the weight of the bullet proof vests, but were less impressed by the army rations!

Every Friday children from Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 receive violin lessons led by a music teacher from the Cornwall Music Service. The children are making wonderful progress with their playing.

Do all superheroes wear capes?

Class 1 were lucky enough to have a visit from a real life superhero.

Ella the guide dog came to meet us with her owner Heather and we found out about how Ella helps Heather to live her life.  

We all got to ask Heather questions and wanted to find out "How does Ella drive the car?", "How does Ella do the shopping?" and "Can she do the washing?".

Ella is only 2 1/2 years old and will stay with Heather until she is 10.  She was very calm and let everyone stroke her and give her tummy a tickle

Welcome back

Welcome back to the new school year. This year promises to be another exciting one, building on the wonderful provision already in place at Duloe. It has been lovely to see the new children in Reception class being so settled and happy and I would also like to give a special welcome to those children and families who have joined us further up the school.

From a personal perspective, I would like to thank you to all the children, staff and parents who have welcomed me so warmly. I am incredibly excited to join this community and will do my upmost to secure the best education for all of your children.

Finally, on behalf of all the children and staff; we would like to say a huge thank you to the PTFA for all of their hard word over the holidays. The outdoor area is looking vastly improved due to their efforts. Your generosity is hugely appreciated. We are very lucky as a school to have such a supportive body.

It was an absolute pleasure to take this group of children on the annual Year 6 Bowling trip to St Austell this week. We had great fun and even though some of them had never been bowling before they managed to clock up some great scores. 

Thank you to the staff who drove the children and also enjoyed bowling too - Mrs White and Mrs Wright came joint last place, Mrs Hoskins did quite a bit better!!!

We all sat together, had food and drinks and then played on some of the games.
You were a credit to the school.

Chris Husk's Last Assembly

Veronica White

Chris Husk, from the Liskeard and Looe Methodist Circuit, is retiring from doing school assemblies after many years of visiting Duloe and other local schools. 
Chris is a wonderful story teller and the children enjoyed all her assemblies. She started in Duloe in 2007 and  always came prepared with resources, tales, hymns and prayers. She had all the children entranced by her stories and she will be missed. Chris was a teacher in Duloe School for five years in the 1970s. The children made her lovely cards and presented her with flowers. Thank you Chris for your many years of dedication.

Every First Friday of the month Rev Chloe has our collective worship in St Cuby's church. Today she surprised the children in Reception Class and Year 6 with a book presentation. Year 6 were presented with 'The Teenage Prayer Experiment Notebook' which is a book which encourages young people to think about prayer. She congratulated Reception class on finishing their first year at school and presented each child with a Bible storybook which has lovely illustrations. Thank you to Rev Chloe for this lovely surprise for our Year 6 and Reception class children.

Congratulation to our School sports team who on Monday night came second in the Area Sports event at Liskeard school. The team acquitted themselves fantastically. 
The girls team especially performed to a very high standard winning many of their events. 
Special mention goes to Pippa who won the 600m race having stepped in at the last moment to represent our school. Many younger children stepped in to fill places in older year groups when we didn't have enough athletes.
We were very proud of our team who showed responsibility, determination, excellence and enthusiasm throughout the whole evening.
Fabulously well done everyone.

Every child in the school was given the opportunity to take part in a wide variety of events - obstacle races, skipping races with hoops or ropes, flat races, 150m race, shuttle relays and a spoke relay race. Year 6 showed wonderful leadership skills in making sure younger children knew what they were doing and setting up all the events.
