Harvest Festival Week

Harvest Bread

So, we are at the end of the first half term already – where did that time go?!

This week the school celebrated with their Harvest Festival services.  On Wednesday KS2 went to Mount Charles Methodist church – during the service there were poems, songs, a special Viking recipe, story telling and at the end we all joined in with the performance of Harvest Beat, a song that KS2 had been rehearsing with our new music teacher, Miss Sangster.

KS1 Harvest Farmer

The next day the Infants had their Harvest Service in the school hall.  Again, there was a great selection of poems, songs, art work and performances put together by each class.  It was the first time that our new Reception classes joined in an assembly and they did a fantastic job with their song (and even treated us at the end with a performance of The Little Red Hen).

Maybe you could leave a comment below to tell us what your favourite part of the Harvest service was.

Pupils from across the school brought in tins, jars and packet food – a fantastic amount was sitting in the entrance foyer yesterday ready for St Austell Food Bank to come and collect the food.  This charity puts the food together into boxes with enough to feed a family in need for 3 days.  Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to this charity.

I hope you have a good half term holiday and look forward to seeing you for the second half of this Autumn term – already there are plenty of things to look forward to such as Children in Need, a Year 3 trip to the woods, a new reading challenge  and of course all the Christmas fun at the end of the term!

I-Spy with my little eye…


Last week our lunchtime supervisors turned into super sleuths and were on the lookout for pupils from across the school doing the right thing at the right time.  They were keeping a special look out for children being kind to each other, helping out around the school and generally being great pupils!

Like all good detectives, they were armed with a notebook to write down the names of those pupils they spotted during the week.

In assembly on Friday morning, I had the pleasure of reading out all the names of those pupils who had their names recorded in the lunchtime supervisor’s notebooks.  And boy, did it take a long time to read them all out!

Well done to the 133 pupils who were spotted last week.  Don’t forget to put up your 2 house points if your name was read out.

If you were spotted last week, why not leave us a comment below to tell us what you did.

Year 4 Egyptian Project

Year 4 pupils have been enjoying their Egyptian project.  You can enjoy two of their videos here.

Year 4 pupils have been busy this half term with their new Egyptian project.  Here are two videos to show their work – This first one shows some examples of the Egyptian death masks that the pupils made using Modroc.

The second video is made up of Egyptian animations produced in ICT lessons based on repeated patterns.
