On 16 April it was blast off at Lewannick CP School!!
All the children were mixed up into different groups and their challenge was to build a rocket – not just any old rocket, a rocket that would fly the furthest!
The crews had the morning to design and make their rockets and then later in the day, they were launched!
In the afternoon, the children continued working in their groups to make information posters about anything space related. They made posters about Apollo 9, Mars, Neil Armstrong and Saturn amongst others!
Well done to all the crews, mission accomplished!

Wow! What an incredible nights stay we had at the Eden Project for our first ever Year 2 and 3 residential. The children had such an amazing time and we are so proud of each and every one of them.
On the Thursday, the children took part in a chocology workshop, explored the biomes and the grounds at Eden and in the evening, they participated in a secret biome! It was such an incredible experience as it was dark and members of the public had gone home! We had the biomes to ourselves! Rosie taught us new songs to sing and we were singing them at the top of our voices!!! We even went on the cloud bridge, played musical instruments and played a variety of games including blindfolding each other!!
We then stayed in the YHA overnight! For many of us, this was the first time we had stayed away from home!!
On Friday, we went ice skating!! It was so much fun!! After lunch, we made our way back to school. We were all extremely tired but we had such an amazing experience. Miss Bowden would like to thank not only the children for being so amazing but also Mr Fugill, Mrs Dinnis, Mrs Maynard, Mr Sparks and Mrs Roseveare for assisting and making this trip possible!

On Friday 16th March, Trewortha went on their annual trip to London along with Year 6 pupils from Boyton and Harrowbarrow. They went on the London Eye, visited the Houses of Parliament (where they had a workshop), took a boat trip up the Thames and enjoyed a 4D experience. They had a very busy day that was enjoyed by all and the staff were proud of the excellent behaviour shown by the pupils.
To celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, Lewannick held a Fairtrade bake off.
The challenge was to bake at home using as many Fairtrade ingredients in the recipe as possible.
Our two winners were Maisie and Annelise who used 7 different ingredients in their recipes.
A big thank you to everyone who baked. It is important to support Fairtrade to ensure farmers and workers receive a fair price for the goods they produce.
In February 2018 after half term, Kilmar Class started their new class topic of Do-you-think-he-saur-us? by creating 3 dimensional masks with skin patterning typically thought to adorn dinosaurs millions of years ago.
They also discovered what coprolite is (dinosaur poo) and how these trace fossils can provide vital clues to palaeontologists about the existence and eating habits of these pre-historic creatures. To really engage with their new topic they even made their own coprolite!
On Thursday 22nd February Year 6 joined fellow pupils from Boyton and Harrowbarrow schools for a sponsored beach clean at Widemouth Bay near Bude.It was beautiful weather and it provided a great opportunity for the children to meet their peers who they will be going to London with in March. A great contribution was made by all involved to help tackle the issue of ocean plastic.
Trewortha Class took part in a production of Carmen at Launceston College.
This project was developed by the Royal Opera House to make opera accessible to school children. We thank Nicole and Shelley from Cornwall Music Hub for all their hard work putting this performance together and we valued the opportunity to work with children from Coads Green and Altarnun schools.
On Wednesday 7th February, Trewortha Class took part in a pop-up book workshop. Robert Crowther, a parent from pre-school, kindly treated us to some of his published books, including trains, cars and the alphabet. He taught us how to make simple pop-ups, sliding pages and flaps. We had a brilliant day and hope he will come back and work with us again in the future.
