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!
EYFS Class Photos for the West Briton (Photos will be in the paper on 18th October)
We made potions after reading Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson.
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!
This week in Gwithian and Godrevy we have been learning about the Three Little Pigs. We have learnt the story, made wanted posters for the big bad wolf, made puppets and masks and investgated the properties of straw, bricks and sticks. We also did a lot of huffing and puffing!
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.
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!
We studied SUNFLOWERS by Vincent Van Gogh. We enjoyed making our own collages.
Every week, we use our bread maker to make delicious homemade bread. We try different types of bread and experiment with different spreads.
We love building, creating and making in our super outdoor area.
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.
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.
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.
