It has been a whirlwind of a short half term characterised by snow, rain and wind outside and lots of learning inside the building. Spring term is usually one of our most productive terms, with the children well settled in their classes, and this first half term has been no exception.

On Tuesday, we joined the rest of the country in celebrating Safer Internet Day with a shared assembly and different activities in class to support the children safely navigating the ever-changing landscape of the our online world. If you have any concerns or questions about internet safety, please contact school as we acess to a wealth of guidance to support different aspects of online safety.

Canute class went to visit one of the the local shops to find out more about which skills and knowledge is needed to run a shop. The enjoyed finding out how their maths skills are useful outside the classroom and on their return to class, set about creating jam sandwiches with their bought ingredients.

For Tregeagle class, swimming starts again on Wednesday 21st February. Mrs Hughes has sent out reminders about kit, timings and logistics today. Please make sure you let us know if you need support with this.

We will be holding Parent Consultations in the week commencing 26th February, boking forms will be sent home in the week after half term. We are continuing with face to face meetings so you have the chance to se your child’s work in discussion with their teacher.

After half term, it will be Canute’s turn to work with our Mental Health Practitioner o learn all about managing emotions and feelings through the Decider Skills. This will help develop a shared language to use across the school for children and staff to support strategies for managing “The Fizz”.

A huge THANK YOU to Christine for filling our planters with colourful plants which make us all smile whenever we round the corner.

We finished half term with a visit from Reverend Richard, who taught us how to make pancakes for Pancake day and the significance of Shrove Tuesday in the Christian calendar.

Polruan Primary Academy is a small, happy and vibrant school, situated at the very top of the village with the most fantastic views of the Fowey Estuary. Our school currently has two classes: Canute Class (Key stage 1) and Tregeagle Class (Key stage 2) both inhabiting spacious, welcoming classrooms with access to outside space. We also have a pre-school nursery provision embedded in our KS1 classroom, providing a seamless transition from pre-school to school.

Children at our school develop a love for learning in the coastal and rural environment immediately surrounding us and use this to explore national and global issues.

We pride ourselves on our inclusive supportive ethos and high expectations for all. Our dedicated and highly skilled teaching staff work incredibly hard to ensure all pupils reach the highest standards during their time with us.

We have strong community links and our school is an integral part of the village community. We work closely with our neighbouring schools and the wider network of Bridge Schools Trust.
