Little Foresters Stay and Play is back for the spring and summer. We have select four dates (one a month) where we would like to invite children and parents local to the area to come to a forest school session. this sessions will be themed around a book each month and will be run by our Early Year's teacher - Mrs Harper.
We ask that people wishing to attend ring or email to book in so we know how many to expect. We are really looking forward to seeing new faces and welcoming you to our school.
Any questions, please get in touch!
Last week it was Safer Internet Day. Mr Tucker held an assembly where they discussed the key areas for staying safe online. Children demonstrated a great understanding of what to do to keep them safe, but it is extremely important that we talk about it regularly, so children have an opportunity to explain what they are worried about as well. We reminded children that if they see something they don't like online - tell someone!
We had our second visit from the library van this afternoon. School council selected 60 new books to add to our library including books by authors such as: Miranda Hart, Tom Fletcher, Julia Donaldson, Jaqueline Wilson, Jeff Kinney and many more. The children were excited to start reading some fresh, new exciting books.
From this week we will be celebrating more successes in our classrooms. We have always awarded a star of the week but from now on we will also be celebrating a particular star in reading, writing, spelling or maths. As well as highlighting pupils who are demonstrating excellent learning skills including - taking on challenges, learning from mistakes, never giving up and taking risks. Finally we will also be shining a spotlight on one particular pupil who has been a fantastic role model in the school and awarding a Headteacher's award pen. Friday assemblies will have to be a little bit longer, but we are looking forward to celebrating the hard work from our pupils.
Race 4 of the season took place this week. Yet again it was extremely wet and muddy and the children are having to get used to running in these conditions. The team is remaining strong with most of the runners from race 1 still taking part. One more race to go before half term, keep up the good work!
Last term Eagle Class wrote a song inspired by an environmental issue. The class focused their writing on plastic. This was the chorus
Plastic is useful, handy and strong.
but when it comes to single use it's very, very wrong.
Our planet is precious, super, super great.
But now we need to make a change, we cannot hesitate.
Four of the main lyrics writers went to St Martin's Church to share the song with other songs in the trust. they were extremely confident and brave to stand up in front of so many people.
All classes have been getting into the Christmas spirit. The younger children have been writing letters to Santa and learning about the Christmas story. Everyone enjoyed a festive lunch on Wednesday and play rehearsals are in full swing! Don't forget our performances are on next Wednesday. Hope to see you there!
Today, a volunteer from Cornwall Air Ambulance visited us to tell us more about the charity. Before half term we raised money towards their new helicopter and they wanted to come in to tell us more about how the money would be used. Children found out lots about the equipment they carry, the special clothes they wear and about the helicopter themselves. The children were extremely interested and asked some great questions. It is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to meet people and find out about what they do
We dedicated some time to being kind last week. We talked about how kind words make you feel good and someone else feel good. We think we have a school full of kindness, but is important to dedicate some time to this every now and again!
Our new reading scheme has arrived. We are very grateful to the PTA for all the hard work as all the money raised last years has enabled us to purchased this fantastic new resource. The new scheme is closely matched to our phonics programme allowing pupils to use their decoding skills to read the whole book. We hope you enjoy sharing these books at home.
