Summer term is a very busy time in our school. Many classes were involved in outdoor activities, some in sponsored events, and all of us enjoyed our Arts Week.
Please visit our ‘Classes’ section to see what we have been up to!
Year R/1 - Launceston Castle
Some of the infants went on a trip to Lauceston Castle. They were then inspired to make some castles of their own from foam blocks. Here you can see the infants exploring the medieval fire.
Year 3 - Caring for our Environment
The children in Year 3 have been involved in a recycling project. We had a visit from Mrs Recycle, who explained how our landfill sites are becoming too full. She taught the children about the 3 main features of saving our environment – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Global Action Plan came to school and did a waste audit. Children weighed the rubbish they found in the school bins and have found ways to reduce, reuse and recycle the schools waste. During Arts Week the Year 3 children made a junk band out of recycled materials.
Year 3 – 4 - Jump Rope for HeartAs part of our daily exercise programme, the children in Year 3 – 4 have been learning to skip. On June 7th during Help a Heart Week, the children from this class took part in a sponsored skip event. They were raising money for the British Heart Foundation and managed to raise a total of £270. The school was able to keep 25% of the money raised and the children are delighted that they now have some wet playtime equipment. Well done to all the children who worked really hard and all the friends and families who supported them
Year 4 - The day the tractor came to school
One of our school governors brought a tractor to school for year 4 to explore and learn about. We had a great afternoon. We learned about all the jobs that tractors do – ploughing, sowing seeds, pulling vehicles, lifting and digging, not just on farms but on building sites, on the roads and even at the football stadium!
This term the children in Year 5 have taken part in Canoeing and problem solving activities with Shoreline in Bude. All had a great time, as you can see in the photos, but many got very wet!
Each year the children in Year 6 go camping at Tamar Lakes and learn how to sail and windsurf. The camp is designed to enable children to try out new skills, whilst asserting their independence. They all enjoy a barbeque, play lots of team games and take part in a late night wild life walk. As you can see from the photographs, they all have a fantastic time!
