On Friday 1oth November Trewortha class held an assembly based on our topic of World War 2. This was also their tribute to Remembrance Day.
On Thursday 21st September, Trewortha class visited the Military Museum at Davidstow. Pupils enjoyed a guided tour around the site, taking in extensive information about this former RAF station (from its opening on 1st October 1942 until its closure at the end of 1945) and learning about the armed forces during WWII. Individual buildings have displays and information on every RAF station that existed in Cornwall together with coverage of the Royal Navy (including the Royal Marines and Fleet Air Arm) and the British Army. It was a very interesting visit.
Lewannick Stay and Play is starting on Monday 11 September 2017.

On 16 June 2017 we held our annual Grandparents’ Tea Party, which this year was timed to coincide with ‘The Great Get Together’, a campaign of the Jo Cox Foundation. Jo Cox MP was tragically killed exactly a year previous.
The whole event was a huge success, and you can read more in the following Cornish and Devon Post article:

Well done to our amazing School Council, this was well deserved recognition for their hard work!
On 7 July, we were privileged to be visited by Chris Lubbe, who was a bodyguard for Nelson Mandela for 10 years following his release from prison.
He gave an assembly for the whole school, talking about his incredible life story, and this was followed by a more in-depth session with Trewortha Class.
In the afternoon, Chris delivered a presentation at Jericho’s in Launceston.

On 6 June 2017, pupils from years 5 and 6 visited the RNLI for their annual Hit the Surf event.
This year we travelled to Fistral Beach in Newquay where waves were 8-10ft. Unfortunately it was too dangerous to go in the water, but we had a great time playing team building games and we had a jet ski talk!

On 23 May 2017, Kilmar class spent the day at historic Bodmin Jail.
We learnt about the history of the prison, the conditions, the inmates and their alleged crimes and related punishments, which included incarceration, flogging, hard labour and various methods of execution.
Being there in person and seeing the jail and its contents made for a very interesting, slightly uncomfortable and at times shocking experience.
The children were absorbed throughout, and were able to find the execution of the unfortunate Matthew Weeks listed on a wall plaque (we have been covering the case of Charlotte Dymond as part of our Whodunnit? class theme).

On 23 May 2017, Trewortha Class undertook their annual short trip to Roscoff, France.
We set off on the evening sailing from Plymouth and after a night of little sleep, we arrived at Roscoff bright and early. The weather was foggy, but this slowly lifted to warm sunshine as the morning progressed.
We first walked to a pretty little chapel on the promontory, before moving on to the playground. This is adjacent to the weekly market, and we spent some time and euros there picking up some local specialilites and not so local fidget spinners.
From there, we walked through the pretty town to a small beach, where the children played in the sand and the shallow sea pool. This was followed by a visit to our favourite crêperie for savoury and sweet crêpes – delicious!
We then made our way back to the ferry port for the mid afternoon sailing back to Plymouth, which included dinner. We all arrived back tired but happy after a really enjoyable visit.
We had many positive comments from passengers and the staff on the ferry, complimenting the children on their excellent behaviour – well done to you all!
