Mini-beast Adventure

May 24th, 2012 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

The Foundation stage classes had a wonderful sunny afternoon pond dipping and bug hunting at Roadford Lake. We all enjoyed catching mini-beasts in the lake and running through the grass with our nets.

Many thanks to Neil Reeves and his team at South West Lakes Trust for looking after us and to all our parent helpers on the day. 

Pictured are Matthew Rowland trying for a big catch and Charlie Bourner and Mr Kemp attempting to identify theirs. We were very lucky indeed to catch a rare glimpse of the stripey-legged Robert Carmichael bug!

Craft Club

May 21st, 2012 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

Craft Club for Years 1 and 2 takes place on Thursday afternoons from 3.30pm -4.30pm with Mrs Wright. This is a very popular club and this term the children have been making royal crowns for the jubilee celebrations.

The summer individual concert  season began with the ever-popular Music for a Summer Evening, in which our most experienced  soloists had a chance to perform to an appreciative audience. Highlights as ever, were performances of the Y11 GCSE compositions, and this year was no exception – many of the compositions would not look out of place in an A level examination. Well done to Lorna Marshall, Flo Pillman, Alice Nicholson, Harriet  Dawson and Naomi Gillies for your wonderful pieces! As always, there were some stunning performances from individuals, and £180 was raised towards the new piano fund, which stands (through our fundraising efforts and your generous donations) at around £3,500. We look forward to seeing you at our Year 7 and 8 concert, followed by our Year 9 – 11 concert which is on Thursday, 14th June.

New Kit Car

April 30th, 2012 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

On Thursday the children in Y6 had the opportunity to drive a kit car that had been built by Mr Turner and the children in years 7 & 8. The car is going to take part in a competition in June at Newquay Airport against other kit cars built and driven by students of the same age. There will be a number of challenges including a straight drag race and slalom course. The children in Year 6 will soon be having a drive off challenge against one another in order to select the final drivers for the competition. Mr Turner said how pleased he was with the effort and enthusiasm of the children and that they car had successfully completed its first trial run.
