Shrove Tuesday, World Book Day and St Piran's Day

It has certainly been a busy, first week back with activities on every day. We started the week by visiting the church and the parishioners spoke to the children about Shrove Tuesday and made pancakes for us to eat. It is lovely to be invited in to the church and learn about special days together. 

On Wednesday, our plan was to read together in the forest with a treat of hot chocolate and biscuits, but the weather was not on our side. So, we decided to do it inside. Eagle class paired up with younger children across the school to share books together. It has been a long time since we have had the chance to do this and the children loved it. They have requested we do it again soon!

Thursday was World Book day and everyone came to school in costumes to go with their favourite books. There were some fabulous costumes (especially Mrs Harper!). We took the time to talk about reading and we relaunched our Reading karate system to encourage more reading in our free time. We also held a book swap, where people donated books and could select a new book to take home. Everyone had the opportunity to select a new book to try. 

Finally, on Friday, it was the St Piran's Day parade in Bodmin. It has been two years since it was last held and it was exciting to be able to take part again. We took our singing group to take part in the parade and sing in the church. They were rewarded for their hard work with a pasty! 

Also on Friday key stage 2 had their first cross country race for a long time. It wasn't the nicest weather, but they were excited to give it a go. They have missed the chance of taking part in competitive sports with other schools and have been excited to have a go at any competitions that they can this year. They did great!! Some of them have qualified for the next round.
