People Who Help Us

Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.


Reception loved visiting Illogan church, it was wonderful to find out more about Christian worship. The children sounded wonderful singing their Nativity songs in the church for reverend Steve.

In Reception we have been learning about doubles. We have learnt a new song and have spent time doing lots of practical activities to help us show our understanding.

We have enjoyed exploring 3D shapes this week. We investigated which shapes could roll/ stack. We had a compilation to see how many different ways they could build a tower.

As part of our Forest School activities Reception classes shared popcorn around our campfire. We watched as the hard, golden kernels of corn transformed into delicious, tasty snacks for us to enjoy whilst listening to our favourite story.

Reception have enjoyed Forest School this term and today we cooked pop corn on the fire. The children were thrilled to watch the corn pop in the pan and it was a real heart warming moment to see them all enjoy their treat together.




The children were so delighted to find out more about ‘people who help us’. We had a wonderful visit from Tolvaddon fire station and learnt what to do in an emergency.

In Reception we have been reading 'I am Henry Finch'. We created our own flock of fabulous finches and wrote captions to introduce our own little finches.

In Reception this week we have taken our learning out and about the school grounds. Both classes enjoyed exploring and searching for mini beasts. We observed them closely in their habitats, identified them and ticked them off on our checklist.

We have been busy subitising in reception this week. They were able to look at a group of objects and realise how many there were without counting. This is a really important step for young children.

Ready, Set, Go! Bikeability in Rainbows and Sunbeams is a huge success. Both classes have loved the opportunity and are ready to roll on our bike riding programme. The smiles of success say it all ! Huge thanks to Mr Shaughnessy for introducing the scheme into EYFS and supporting us in teaching this brand new programme of physical activity.

Sunbeams and Rainbows would like to introduce you to our pet African Giant Land Snails called Neville and Simon. They are a wonderful addition to the school and the children absolutely adore them. Neville and Simon look forward to holidaying in other classes throughout the school.
