As part of our theme ‘If You Go Down To The Woods Today….’ We read We’re Going On A Bear Hunt. We drew story maps and retold the story using actions. We also innovated the story and created our own versions. We then read The Gruffalo and designed our own story settings and created our own characters to tell a story about.

We went on to create a mind map to found out what the children already knew and what they would like to learn more about. In response to the children’s questions about the woods we decided we just had to go ourselves to find out the answers.

Orange juice tasting

In Godrevy and Gwithian we squeezed oranges so that we could compare the taste of fresh orange juice to orange squash.

We had to squeeze lots of oranges.  It was hard work squeezing the oranges.

Redruth Library visit.

We visited Redruth library to look at their books.  We met Sarah who told us lots of facts about the library.  She also read a story.  It was a Halloween story.

We enjoyed our visit to the library.  We chose a book to look at and shared the stories with our friends.

Forest School in EYFS

Every Monday, children from our EYFS classes visit Tehidy Woods for outdoor learning. This week, twelve children accompanied Mr Lawrence and Mrs Sciascia and had a great time making camps, building dens and following a trail. The highlight of the afternoon though, was hot chocolate and biscuits!

We made potions after reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson.

 

Camp Fires and Pop Corn


This half term, Mrs Ishmael and Mrs Sciascia have taken groups of children on to the school field to make a campfire. The children in Gwithian and Godrevy carefully followed instructions and learned how to keep safe. When the fire was ready, the children cooked popcorn and tasted it. They loved to see and hear the corn popping in the pan!

Our new bikes!!

Bikes for Beginners

A big THANK YOU to all the families who voted for our cause at the Tesco branches in Redruth and Pool. We were awarded £2,000 and were able to purchase over a dozen new bikes and safety equipment. The children have enjoyed riding them in the beautiful late February weather.

St Piran's Day

Gwithian and Godrevy had a fabulous day celebrating the Cornish Saint Piran. We wore Cornish colours, made Cornish flags, baked Cornish Fairings, learned two Cornish dances, sang Cornish songs and created a flock of choughs for the school foyer!

We are proud to be a Cornish School.

Gwithian class had fun designing and making the gingerbread man’s face. One child said that it was fun because it’s not every day you eat your work!

This week , children in the EYFS performed a celebration assembly to their families. The children were fantastic, happy and confident.

We sang, told stories and danced.

The highlight of our assembly was singing “you are my sunshine” to our loved ones.

African Drumming Day

 

We had an exciting day when an African Drumming band visited our school. They came all the way from Ghana and showed us their skills. They taught us a song and how to do traditional African Dancing. Everyone joined in – even Mrs May!

Gwithian Class are visited by PC Stu

 

What a fabulous morning. Gwithian class were visited by PC Stu and Detective Rebecca. PC Stu gave us an important talk about keeping safe and the police help us.

We then went to see his police car and everyone got the chance to sit in the driver's seat and sound the sirens. It was very loud.

We learned a lot and look forward to seeing PC Stu again in the Spring with a police dog.
