Class Teacher Miss Mewton, HLTA Mrs Allen, TA Miss Roworth

Wow... we've made it!  A very busy half term has just passed us by and SATs are a dim and distant memory for our year 6's.  This week we had our annual year 6 trip to Par beach on Wednesday, which was great fun and very warm.  Meanwhile, the Year 5's spent two days at Polkerris beach,  sailing, paddle- boarding and generally  enjoying beach life. 
We hope you have a happy and restful holiday and we'll see you all back on the 3rd June.
On Wednesday this week we had a plastic - free day and looked into plastic pollution all around us.  We made posters to encourage people to re-use and recycle. In Science we have been experimenting with Newton meters exploring mass, gravity and weight. In R.E we have been comparing Christian and Jewish festivals and writing a fact file all about the differences and similarities.
On Monday we have the Y6 SATS. The Y6 children are welcome in to school from 8.15 to take part in breakfast if they wish.  We would like to wish everyone all the best in these tests and we know you couldn't have worked any harder over the past year to get to this point.  Whatever the outcome, we know you are all superstars! Have a lovely, restful weekend and see you all Monday!
Welcome back to the start of the Summer term.  As you may have noticed, the weather is very changeable at the moment and the children still need to have a coat and jumper in school everyday please!
This week we launched our  new topic, 'Has Technology improved our lives?' We have looked at cinema posters from the 1930s and compared them to modern day ones.  We then watched the first ever colour film, The Wizard of Oz.  Afterwards, we compared the original one with the modern version...We concluded that technology had moved on greatly since the 1930's! 
Happy Easter everyone -  Wow! Yet another busy week has flown by - This week we have had a practice SATs week for our lovely Y6, they all did a grand job and  they are now ready and able to do their tests in May.  We also had our egg decorating afternoon, where we joined forces with all ages within the school and decorated boiled eggs.  Miss M and Mrs A did a disco themed one for the green team, it was very glittery and sparkly!
Year 6 please practise your times tables over the holiday and read as much as you all helps!
Be good and be happy. See you all in 2 weeks time.
We have had a very busy few weeks - We celebrated the start of Lent with our annual pancake race on the playground.  The whole school took part and lots of pancakes were tossed and caught ... and lots of pancakes were tossed and left on the floor for the seagulls! We also had great fun on Red Nose Day, dressing in red and dancing to Radio Cornwall's breakfast show in the playground with our parents. On Monday we visited The Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro, where we took part in some archaeological  investigations and met a real life Mummy and Sarcophagus.  The children had a lovely time and were very well behaved.  We also celebrated World Book Day by wearing our PJ's and having a snuggle afternoon reading stories to the younger children. And finally we celebrated St Piran's Day by making fab flags with information on them about the life of St Piran.  In amongst all this we have still managed to do our daily English, Maths and spelling!
Just a Reminder:
Please make sure your child has a PE Kit in school every day...this consists of black shorts, white t. shirt and plimsolls or trainers, thank you.
We will be sending home a set of yr 3/4 and yr 5/6 spellings from The National Curriculum.  Please help and support your child to learn these as it will prove a huge benefit for them in their assessments throughout the year, thank you.
