Some of our Year 6 and 5 children have been enjoying the wonderful Summer weather and playing with giant balloons on the school field. We have been looking at different activities the children can do to have fun and get some exercise whilst social distancing and these balloons proved a very popular choice.
This week the children have been using our brand new Ipads to write code which has controlled drones. The children have got to grips with the new technology really quickly and have already advanced to coding which makes their drones flip over in mid-air and take photos, which they can also upload in class.
Mrs Wright, Mrs Campbell and Mrs Rice have been incredibly inventive over the last few weeks, creating a socially distanced Year 6 leavers production. The children have performed all of the songs to 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat'. The children got to dress up as all of the characters and freeze frame key parts of the story. The pictures were then added onto a DVD with the accompanying singing by the children so they all had a record of their achievements. Staff and children did incredibly well is creating such a creative performance in such strange times. Wee done to you all!
The entrance to our school has really blossomed over the last few weeks as the flowers that the children have planted with the help of the PTFA have come to life. The mixture of the warm weather and rain has really seem the flourish. The make a wonderful first impression when you visit our school.
Mrs Dunn's 'Bubble' have been busy learning about the human skeleton and have been creating their our skeletons by using any objects they can find around the playground. Mrs Dunn has been making sure the correct number of ribs have been added and everything was in the right place!
This week we have been very lucky to take delivery of 16 brand new Ipads to improve our Computing provision within school. The children have got straight into using them by using coding apps to produce a range of animations. We are looking forward to using them across the curriculum in the coming months.
This week’s Faith at Home episode explores the theme of COMPASSION, with special input from Bishop Paul Mason, along with prayers, reflections, activities and fun from the Archbishop of York Youth Trust and Prayer Spaces in Schools.
We are very lucky at Duloe to have our own school allotment, which we rent from the Duchy of Cornwall and is situated next to St Cuby's Church. Since we have been back at school after lockdown, we have been going to the allotment in small groups and harvesting rhubarb, strawberries, apples and a range of other vegetables and fruits.
The children have worked hard, not only by planting and harvesting the produce, but also by maintaining the allotment through weeding and tidying. Well done to our green fingered bunch!
This week’s Faith at Home episode explores the theme of VULNERABILITY, with prayers, reflections, activities and fun from student leaders in Derby and special features from HeartSmart, Prayer Spaces in Schools and Guvna B.
Children at Duloe this week took part in a virtual sports competition with schools from all over Cornwall. There were a range of socially distanced activities for the children to participate in every day and the competition was open to children from every age group. The tennis skills were particularly good fun - we may have some Wibledon champions of the future.
