Happy Easter

I must start with an apology that there have not been any updates on the blog this term.

This is not because nothing has happened  – quite the opposite in fact!

Some of the highlights of this term have included our celebrations of St Piran’s Day – throughout the day pupils performed Cornish based stories and plays to parents and enjoyed a feast of fine Cornish food.

World Book Day saw another great turnout of pupils wearing the costumes of book characters.

Year 5 pupils have been busy pedalling away for this half term and have done really well to get their Bikeability certificates – well done and best wishes for many many miles of safe cycling.

Year 4 pupils had a great trip to Trerice in relation to their Tudor project and the Year 2s had a fantastic trip down to Geevor Tin Mine.

Pupils across Key Stage 2 took part in the Mathletics challenge and answered 21644 questions correctly over the period of the competition.  6W did so well they have won a 3 month free subscription to Mathletics and 6CD have won their class a subscription to Spellodrome.

There has been continued sporting success which the sports newsletters have been keeping you up to date with.  Musically we have been just as busy with the samba band coming second in the Truro Music Festival.  This was a fantastic achievement as they were the only Primary school band in the competition and were up against teams that had competed up to 5 times before.

There was a perfect opportunity to demonstrate their musical prowess last week when pupils from across the school performed in the Easter Concert – an evening filled with choir, samba, ukuleles and solo performances.  Well done to all involved.

Then last Friday the school were out on the field running the Sport Relief mile supporting this charity.

So, as you can see this has certainly been a busy few weeks.  Yesterday I was working on the calendar for the summer term and it looks to be equally as busy.  Have a great break over Easter and look forward to seeing you back in April.
