Class 2 and 3 have really enjoyed their French lessons this term. Our wonderful linguist, Mrs Dunn, is teaching French each week in both classes. Hopefully a school trip to Paris soon!
Class 3 are focusing on cricket this half-term and are having their lessons on Duloe's cricket field. The children have been developing their throwing and catching skills.
Class 1 had a visit from the Cornwall Library Service today who shared some classic stories with the children in the sunshine. We also selected 71 new books to add to our library and classes.
Class 1 and Class 3 will be using African percussion instruments this half-term in their music lessons. We have rented the instruments from the Cornwall Music Service and the children will be composing and performing their own compositions with expert tuition from Mrs Butlin.
Over the summer holidays, two of our wonderful children decided they wanted to raise money for the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. They raised an amazing £125 by selling homemade lemonade, homegrown veggies, flowers and prints to locals and passers by. We are so proud of them as a school. Really well done.
Today we had a church service for our Year 6 children and their parents. The children sang songs and spoke about their memories of primary school.
We would like to wish all the children the best of luck in the next step of their learning journey.
Class 3 have a glorious afternoon for their sports day. The children took part in a relay, sprint races, tug-of-war and finished off with a water-based obstacle race, where everybody got rather wet!
We would like to say a big thank you to the Liskeard and Looe rotary group for providing all of our KS2 children with a copy of the book 'Watch Out'. The book covers a number of safeguarding issues, in a age appropriate way, aimed at informing children and keeping them safe. Thank you for this kind donation.
Truro Diocese kindly purchased a copy of 'It's Your Move' for all of our Year 6 children, to help them with their transition to secondary school. It is a really helpful and informative read and on behalf of the Year 6 children I would like to say a huge thank you to the diocese.
Once again I have been blown away by the generosity of our community. Your donations yesterday to the Liskeard and Looe Foodbank have been extraordinary. As well as all of these items we also have some sizeable cash donations, which will also play a vital role for the charity.
If anybody would like to come along and support my 100 mile run for the Foodbank, we will be starting at 11am on the 25th July at Siblyback and will be running loops all day and night. If you fancy coming along for a jog or a cycle, it would be lovely to see you.
