Busy final two weeks of half term

We have had a very busy half term!

As part of the annual NSPCC Number Day, we invited the wonderful volunteers in to deliver workshops to Year 2 and 6 whilst the rest of the school took part in a range of activities linking to numbers/maths.

Year 5/6 visits to Looe Community Academy
Looe Community Academy have invited us to two events this half term. One event was linking to languages where the children were learning Spanish. The other event was linking to PSHE where the children took part in a range of activities linking to Safer Internet Week.

School Disco
Our PTFA organised a school disco in the last week. Children enjoyed their usual hot dog, refreshments and tuck shop alongside some dancing. We raised over £100 so thank-you to all parents who supported and a special thank-you to our PTFA for organising the event.

Pop Up Play
We invited our friends from Barbican Pre School and West Looe Playgroup to join us with a Pop Up Play morning. We had a range of role play areas set up to develop the children's imaginative skills. It was also wonderful to see them develop with their communication and social skills across the 3 different settings. We look forward to working with the local pre schools throughout the rest of the year.

Enrichment opportunities
Even though it has been a short half term, we have still been out and about in the community. Kilminorth class visited a Chinese restaurant. Please find below our calendar dates for Spring term 2 with further additional experiences for the children.

Trenode is a small but growing primary school situated between Liskeard and Looe. Extensive grounds allow for a range of outdoor learning experiences; we also have spacious indoor facilities, including a music room. A nurturing, family ethos, in mixed-age classes, enables our pupils to be challenged as individuals.

‘Reach beyond your grasp’ is our motto at Trenode. We would like all children to aspire further than they think they can! We are on a ‘Visible Learning’ journey, with the other schools in Bridge Schools, which is empowering our pupils to be able to discuss their learning and progress, understanding their ‘next steps’.
