Schools for All Seasons, Boudicca and Separating materials 

It's been a busy couple of weeks with sports day, Bridge School Games, Wellbeing day, a trip to Newquay Orchard and Year 6 at sailing. 

But, we have also done lots of other work. We have been working hard in History to find out about Boudicca and Hadrian's wall. In science we investigated different ways of separating materials. In Literacy we are rewriting the story Float and in maths we have just finished our measures work. 

As part of the project - Schools For All Seasons - we were invited to Newquay Orchard to perform the song we had written. It was a lovely day and we are looking forward to sharing it with an even bigger audience at Eden before the end of term. 

We have also found time to rehearse for our end of year play!

Wellbeing day 

On Wednesday, the whole school took part in wellbeing day. The children were mixed in to 4 groups to complete different activities in the morning. They did forest school, healthy snack making, printing and mindfulness. In the afternoon the children returned to the normal classes but continued with activities for wellbeing including using the outdoors, making happy boxes, playing and relaxation. 

In assembly we asked the children what they thought of the day and we were met with an overwhelmingly positive response from the children. They enjoyed working with children in different classes, they said they felt relaxed and happy and wanted to do it again. We asked how we could make it better next time and they gave us some great ideas! 

Hopefully everyone has come home relaxed and happy!!

Sports day 

This week, we had our first Sports day for three years where parents and friends could join us. It was a fantastic day and the children showed determination and enthusiasm. We participated in a range of different sporting activities to collect points. All three teams - Polkerris, Crinnis and Carylon - scored over 800 points. Carylon were victorious with a grand total of 888. The scores from the morning competitions were part of the Bridge School games and have been submitted for the competition.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported and also a huge thank you to our PTA for supplying refreshments! We are now looking forward to Little Forester's sports day next week.

Although its been a short first week back we have fit a lot in! This week the children started the week by drawing or writing about how they celebrated the Jubilee. In the forest the children have been learning about grass and exploring the difference between the grass found in different areas of the forest. They then made some grass heads to see if they can grow their own grass. In art the year 1 children have started a new topic based on sculptures. This week they made some snail shells using an etching technique to create the lines and patterns. The pre-school children this week have been playing lots of listening games and listening to stories to see if they can answer questions about them. We finished off the week by having an ice cream party as the children had earnt all their 10 class smiley faces. 

 


Little Foresters   Jubilee celebration

This week has been full of Jubilee celebrations. The children have done a variety of craft activities; making bunting, flags, crowns, stamps and queen portraits. In literacy the children wrote acrostic poems about the Jubilee. We also went to the church and re-enacted the Queens Coronation where all the children had the opportunity to be the king or queen. The children all looked fantastic in their Sunday best for the Jubilee garden party. It was lovely to see so many people at the garden party and I know all the children had a lovely time playing all the traditional games and and enjoying some tasty treats. 

 


Eagles   The end of last half term and the start of a new one

Jubilee, conductors and singing. 

We ended last half term with Platinum Jubilee celebrations. We held a fete in the field with traditional games and refreshments and everyone wore their 'Sunday Best'! It was a great day! We spent the week learning about the Queen and her family. 

Since half term we have started a new writing topic linked to the book float. the first three paragraphs are looking great. In maths we are focusing on measures including time. We are continuing are learning in science and history from last half term and have found out about why the Romans invaded Britain. In science we tested different electrical conductors. 

Our current class book is The Lion Above The Door. We are approaching the end, but it has brought up lots of discussion topics about racism and bullying. It has been very interesting. 

Rehearsals for the summer production are in full swing and singing can be heard all over school. Less than 6 weeks left to prepare! 

 


Jays   Aquarium

We all had a lovely time on our trip this week. We enjoyed the train journey to Newquay where we completed an I spy sheet and ate biscuits. We then enjoyed a nice walk through Newquay in the sunshine. Once at the aquarium we split into two groups. We got to look around the aquarium and see some fascinating sea creatures and even got up close to some in the rockpool encounter workshop. Luckily it was nice weather so we got to eat lunch on the beach. We finished off the day by having a nice ice lolly before catching the train back to Par. All the children were fantastically well behaved and they all had a lovely day.

We enjoyed some nice weather this week. The children had fun doing some large outdoor painting. In literacy we have finished off our current Little Red Riding Hood book focus by writing a new end to the story. The children wrote some fantastic endings and worked hard to make their writing neat. In history we learnt about longboats and the children had a go at designing and making their own.

This week in literacy we have learnt the Little Red Riding Hood story. The reception and year one children all made some fantastic wanted posters for the wolf. In history we looked at how cars have changed and we looked at the differences between the first car and a car from today. In the forest this week the children have been learning about bees and what we can do to help and protect them. The children all helped to make some bee homes out of bamboo to hang around the forest.
