It's the last full week of summer term and our thoughts at school are turning towards the holidays. Some or us might be going away, some of us will be staying in beautiful Cornwall. However you are planning on spending your summer holiday, this week for your home learning,I want you to dream of your perfect holiday destination! Where would you go if you could go anywhere in the whole wide world??? I quite fancy Madagascar!! You might prefer somewhere with snow? Or a trip to New York? It's up to you. I look forward to hearing about your 'holidays.'
Well I can't believe it is July already! I hope you are all well and are enjoying the learning that you are continuing to do at home.
This week at school we are following on from some of the samba music workshops we did last week. Samba is a Brazilian form of music so we are exploring all things Brazil!
Please have fun finding out about carnival and samba music and if you can email me any of your work, I'd love to see it!
What a busy week we had last week! At school, we took part in lots of different sporting challenges and managed to walk many miles round the school field. We had fun on Tuesday with the Cornwall Music Hub Bub day and saw Anna (through the zoom workshop) at home taking part too! Well done to any of you at home who took part in some of these activities.
This week, there are some more children returning to school but there are still learning suggestions for you to follow at home. Please feel free to email me with any questions or to let me know what you have been up to.
This week we have lots going on!
We will be taking part in the Cornwall Virtual School Games throughout the week, Tuesday we have a day of music workshops,(the Cornwall Music Education Hubbub) and we are 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 has been emailed to you; but please get in touch if there is anything that you are unsure of.
Parents and carers will be sent links on Monday for music workshops which they can access from home on Tuesday. There is more information about this on the wider curriculum document attached.
Have a great week!!
We have had a busy week at school. We made some fantastic pebble art and found out that vinegar cleaned our pennies the best! Let me know what you found out if you carried out the experiment at home. We had great fun adding instruments to the music on the 'Bring the Noise' website. This week we will be making a naked egg in Science so please have a go at home if you can.
Thank you to William and Carys who sent me the writing they had done last week. I really love seeing what you are all up to so please email me anything you are proud of.
Please remember that the home learning we set is to be used as you want to. There is no pressure for everything to be completed each week!

As you would have seen on the email you were sent on Friday, we are hoping to open Duloe school again on Tuesday 2nd June for Year 6 and the children of critical workers. We will then organise a phased return for Year 1, Reception and Nursery.
There will be another letter sent out this week, once we have completed all necessary risk assessments.
Obviously, among our community there will be a host of views about school opening. As a school, we will follow the DfE guidelines and the safeguarding of children and staff's health will be the key priority.
We will support all our families whether they choose to send their children back to school or not.
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.
