We had a fantastic afternoon to end our Great Fire of London topic by welcoming in Looe Fire Service.
We started by learning about fire safety and what to do if we had flames on our clothing (STOP, DROP and ROLL). The class asked fantastic questions about their job and protective clothing.
We then went outside (even in the rain) to look at the fire engine and learn about the different parts in the truck. We finished with everyone trying the hose and even Mrs. Pike ended up getting struck by the hose! When they drove off, we got to hear the siren!
Thank-you Looe Fire Service for teaching us all about keeping safe and also thank-you for what you do in our community!
What a fantastic afternoon we have had celebrating the Queen's Jubilee. We hosted our event with the local community and were overwhelmed with the turnout even though the weather was not on our side.
We had a raffle, cake stand, British games and crafts and our PTA were amazing as usual with their support in organising the event.
Thank-you to all who came and supported us and we look forward to more events to come!
As part of our EYFS continuous provision this week linking to our learning of the Great Fire of London, they became fire fighters and had to problem solve to transfer the water from the water trough to the burning fire. We were really impressed with the language and vocabulary that children were using whilst learning through play. They also moved their learning forwards by identifying different items that would put out the fire the most effectively.
They are firefighters in the making! Well done EYFS!
Over the last couple of days, we have used our courageous advocacy
in thoughtful ways.
We have hosted a disco to further support Shelter Box and their provision to the Ukrainians. These funds will be put together with the money we already raised in previous weeks.
Thank you for your support Trenode friends and families.
This week, we have welcomed the lifeguards into school. Their
yearly visit helps us to remember how to safely visit Cornwall’s beaches each
On Friday, we will welcome the music specialist Mrs Butlin. We cannot wait to welcome our families to our music extravaganza. we look forward to see you all there.
And finally… Mrs Pike will be here in the Summer Term as I go across to Looe primary. You will have a fantastic term learning all about The Great Fire of London and so much more… Until September…
Thank you for all of your support and, as always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email.Miss Pittas
A busy few days in Kilminorth Class!
We have had a busy few days in Kilminorth Class. We have enjoyed celebrating Science Week where were learned all about planting seeds and setting up a fair test for good growth. We also went outside to look for signs of spring time (a great link with our RE learning about Easter) in our school grounds and for the wild plants that have begun to bloom around this time of year. We completed tally charts and Year 2 applied their recent Maths learning about Bar Charts to create a bar chart with the information we found out.
Over the next couple of weeks we will nurture and care for the seeds we have planted to see what light and dark conditions do for growth after seed germination.
Watch this space…
We have supported Red Nose Day by wearing mufti and by having a cake sale. We had fun inviting our families into the playground after school to raise money.
Altogether, we raised £36.40 for the Red Nose Day Mufti and a
whopping £91.40 for the cake sale. Our mufti for Ukraine also raised £38. All
donations being so gratefully received and sent off to their respective
May the staff and children of Trenode thank you for your
support and contributions.
Trip Reminder: Please bring your forms back to the office in plenty of time for our trip to Truro Cathedral next Wednesday.
And finally, Kilminorth Class had the priviledge of welcoming in a story teller from the Cornwall Library Service today. What fun it was to share the love of reading once again with more and more people. At the moment, we are reading James and the Giant Peach in school. It was recommended to us by one of the young ladies in Year 1 who wanted us to read something that her mother once read as a child. We voted as a class and the decision was unanimous. We are proving that, once again, books are timeless and can be enjoyed the world over by everyone; children and adults alike.
What are you reading at the moment? Ask you children to share
their love of reading with you. I wonder what adventures you will go on?
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
