I can't believe that we are nearly at the end of the school year already and what a funny year it has been!
We are now in the last full week of term and I hope that you are enjoying the warmer weather and this week lots of our learning will be taking place outside. We will be exploring mini beasts and exploring their habitats.
As many of us are starting to make our way back to school there is a lot of talk about 'bubbles'. This week we will be investigating bubbles in science and using stories and animation as a stimulus for discussion, writing, art and P.E.
A big thank you to everyone who has been sending in pictures, videos and email updates about your learning at home. It is really great to see.
I have also attached a participation certificate for anyone who took part in the virtual school games to print off.
I hope that you are all well and continuing to cope with these unprecedented times.
Wow, another week is here!
Well done to everyone who took part in the Virtual Cornwall School Games last week. We had so much fun in school trying out the challenges and it was great to see some of your photos and videos.
The Hubbub was also lots of fun. We hope you managed to join in too.
This week there are more children back in school but our learning ideas will still be here for everyone. Again, if you have any questions then please do get in touch.
We have such an exciting week ahead of us!
We will be taking part in the Cornwall Virtual School Games, the Cornwall Music Education Hubbub and also having a 5k Rainbow run supporting Cornwall Hospice South West.
Hopefully you will join in the fun at home too.
All of the information you need for the events is either attached to this page or have been emailed to you; but please get in touch if there is anything that you are unsure of.
We would love to see any photos and videos of you taking part and next week I will share some photos from us in school.
Attached is the home learning for this week and White Rose maths sheets have been emailed to you.
Our wider curriculum work this week is all about the circus. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your amazing circus acts.
This week we will be talking about being safe on the internet. Please can you share the attached Smartie the Penguin Powerpoint with your children and discuss the points brought up in the story.
Information about The Cornwall Virtual School Games Monday 22nd to Friday 26th June 2020
Welcome to the first ever Cornwall Virtual School Games! #CornwallVSG2020 sponsored by the University of Exeter.
We are excited to introduce this year’s Games… with a twist! Although we won’t be going to the host venue, Poltair School to celebrate the amazing sporting achievements of Cornwall’s young people, we will be coming together to get active, focus on wellbeing and take on some active challenges! The best part? Everyone can get involved!
Some of the biggest names in the UK invite the audience into their homes as they become Celebrity Supply Teachers!
Please check out the link below to listen to a range of lessons from celebrities including Martin Bashir and Marcus Rashford. Martin Bashir's lesson about Dr. Martin Luther King is particularly good.
I hope that you are all doing well. It was lovely to be back in school last week and also to chat to some of you on the phone.
Our literacy this week is focusing on another Julia Donaldson book, The Singing Mermaid.
Another story that we will be using this week and referring back to over the coming weeks is that of The Colour Monster by Anna Llenas. It is a great book to encourage children to talk about their feelings and to try to understand their emotions a little more. It is obviously a very unusual time at the moment for all of us.
Can I remind everyone that our home learning is there as a guide and something for you to dip in and out of. If you have discovered something that your child needs to develop further that doesn't relate to our planning then go ahead and follow their lead. It might be that they are confident with the maths set but have been enjoying learning to count in 10's or that they really want to write a story about a dragon, this is a time for us all to follow their lead.
If you would like to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement with your child, the link below for the BBC Newround website discusses the issue in a child appropriate manner.
Despite current circumstances, the annual Summer Reading Challenge will still take place this year. However, the challenge for children aged 4-12 to read 6 books over the Summer will be a little different, you can find out more details about this year’s digital challenge at:
I hope you have had a lovely half term and you are all continuing to enjoy the glorious sunshine.
As we are now starting the final half term of this school year some children will be starting to come back to school and others will be continuing their learning at home. The learning being set will support the children both in and out of school and again, if you are at home with your child please continue to dip in and out of the learning ideas set as you see fit. Class 1 and 2 will be having the same wider curriculum tasks this week, making it more straightforward for family's to work together at home and for the children within school.
I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces over the coming weeks and hope that you are all keeping safe and well.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
