Enrichment opportunities

Year 5/6 visit to Looe Community Academy
Year 5 and 6 spent the morning at LCA to take part in science activities. They looked at the process of fireworks in chemistry, burning foods to look at energy in physics and looking through microscopes in biology.

Wedding bells
Cardinham class are learning about how different religions show love through weddings and this week, the children took part in a Christian wedding. We had our bride, groom, best man, bridesmaid and entourage with Haribo rings and confetti. 

The beauty of nature
I had to share this photo that a parent sent in of one of our Year 5's with his newly born bull calf that he helped come into this world. He was able to show the amazing perseverance farmers go through when a cow is in labour (5 days for this cow!) but we loved the updates and it was a time to reflect on the incredible work farmers do!

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’.
