Foxes and Hawks had a fantastic day at Rosemoor Gardens. We got to play in the woods and gardens and spot different plants and trees.
The best bit of the day was making different Christmas crafts from natural materials!
Trewortha performed their class assembly on 9th November to mark the centenary of WW1 and our studies on WW2.
Mrs Kilpin, Miss Asprey and Mr Sparks visited our Slovenian partner school as part of our Erasmus project, The school in Ljubljana has embraced the critical thinking model and pupils are writing amazing essays in English about the problem of plastic reduction and sea pollution.
We also had the opportunity to visit parts of this amazing country including the Lipica horses, a gorge, and a cathedral.
Wow! What an absolutely amazing day.
On Monday 8 October 2018, Hawks and Trewortha classes left school at 8.15am and headed to Mount Edgcumbe. When we arrived we met with Royal Marine and Naval staff. They put life jackets on us all and we waited to board the landing craft.
Unfortunately, because the tide was going out, we were unable to go on the big landing craft, so we waited for the smaller ones to come and collect us. Once we boarded, we headed up the Tamar towards the warship, the HNLMS Johan de Witt. It was incredible as we turned the corner, we saw the magnificent ship with the helicopter on the back. The children were fascinated!
We then got to board the warship and had cookies and a drink; for lunch we were served hot dogs and chips, with a delicious lolly to follow.
After lunch we had a guided tour of the Dutch warship. The HNLMS Johan de Witt is a Landing Platform Dock (LPD) amphibious warfare ship of the Royal Netherlands Navy. We met the ship’s captain and saw the radars, the kitchens, bakery, gym, cells, hospital, dentist and hairdressers; the ship even has two operating theatres. Whilst we explored the top deck of the ship, the helicopter took off from the back; this was a highlight for many of the children.
It was an absolutely incredible day and a memory that will stay with us all forever! Many thanks to Mrs Maynard for organising this rare opportunity for us and to the Dutch crew for their hospitality.
On Friday 14th 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.
Hawks had the most glorious day at Pennywell Farm!
The children had the chance to hold a range of animals from chicks to piglets, meet different types of chickens, enjoy a tractor and trailer ride in the sun, milk a goat and even bottle feed baby goats!
It was an jam packed day full of farming fun!
