End of Summer term 


Hello again everyone,

I cannot tell you how proud I am of all of you. At the end of the school year I am always bursting with pride but this year in particular has been very different. You have risen to the challenges that you have faced, been resilient and have adapted to change so well. You are all amazing!

 

Year 2 children, I can remember all the way back to pre-school when you would join us at lunchtime and were so small! You have grown so much in confidence and Canute class would not have been the same with out your cheeky personalities. It has been a privilege to be a part of your learning journey and although it is sad that I will not be your teacher next year, I know that you are ready for the challenge of year 3! Mrs Wills is really looking forward to meeting you.

 

To some year 1’s who we haven’t seen for such a long time – we have missed you and can’t wait to see you in September. Your other Reception and Year 1 friends have been busy thinking of new games that we can play and have been very busy making a start improving our outdoor area for your return in September.

 

To the reception and year 1 children who have returned to school, you have adapted to the changes within school easily and it been an honour to be a part of supporting you in coming back to school. It is wonderful to see you happy and settled and to hear your laughter and singing during the school day!

 

To all my Canute parents, THANK YOU! You have been asked to do a job that you have never trained for and you have done so well. Thank you so much for your pictures – they have made me smile day after day and thank you also for all your support.

 

You will all be very happy to know that there is no home learning over the summer holidays. However, please take the time to continue your reading and sharing stories. Look for numbers all around you wherever you go, practice counting and times tables.

 

The library are once again having their summer reading challenge which you may like to take part in, follow this link to find out more:

https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk

 

This week: enjoy some family games, spend time together, have adventures and get exploring outdoors.

 

Please remember to keep checking back to this blog and keep checking your emails – this is how we will communicate any changes or important information to you.

 

Wishing you all a wonderful, happy and safe summer,

Mrs B x

Our final full week! 


Hello everyone,

 

We are almost at our last week of the school year – a year like no other! I could not be prouder of the way in which you’ve all adapted to change and risen to the challenges you have been faced with.

We are getting ready to say goodbye to our Year 6’s who have also had a very different year. If you would like to send them a message to say goodbye please email me and I will make sure they get included in our very different leavers assembly.

 

This week our learning will focus on ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and the modern day great explorer/survivalist Bear Grylls. Below there are activities for history and art. At the moment it looks like we may have a dry, sunny week ahead so I have attached an outdoor scavenger hunt for you to enjoy.

 

Your outdoor challenge this week is to build your own ‘survivalist den’. Use materials that you can find at home and go out in the garden and get creative! To be a successful den it must be waterproof – I’m sure your parents could have fun testing them out with you inside. Remember your sun cream and get outside and get creative!

Home learning blog week 12 

Hello everyone,

 

Last week we were so lucky to take part in the Cornwall Virtual School Games. We certainly enjoyed the activities such as long jumping and speed bounce – I hope you all had fun at home too.

 

This week our learning will focus on great explorer Robert Falcon Scott –Below there are activities for history, Science and Art.

You have all done so well with rising to the challenge of home learning and I am immensely proud of each of you. I know that it has not been easy and has been a big adjustment so thank you once again for your continued support.

 

If you are having a tricky day make sure you allow yourself time to rest and get outside, go for a walk or to the beach. Give yourself some time to relax and then come back feeling refreshed and ready to give your home learning another go.

Home learning blog week 11 

Hello everyone,

 

This week we are very fortunate as a school to have been signed up to the Cornwall Virtual Sports Week. This is a great opportunity to show off some of your sporting skills and earn points for our school. We will be competing against other schools in Cornwall and within our own Academy. This has come at a time when we would have been thinking and training for our own sports day, so I'm sure you will put in lots of enthusiasm as you would have if we were at school. I will look at the points being won by you all and convert them into house points and then I will let you know which house has won overall for the year at the end of this term. Please take a look at Miss Edwards blog for all the relevant information for this coming sports week. There are links to all the activities and how you can record your points below….good luck and have fun!

 

Our photographs this week show Ailla who has been busy growing a variety of different vegetables including purple carrots! She is excited to keep us updated with how her garden is coming along over the next few weeks – well done Ailla! Our other pictures show Liam’s continued hard work, this week he adapted our science to create his own experiment and investigated which natural things found at the beach roll. A fantastic idea and an interesting experiement! He has also sent his wonderful picture of the Bahamas. Keep up the good work Liam! I am so proud of all of you. 

 

This week our learning will focus on great explorer Neil Armstrong – the first man on the moon. Below there are activities for history (history great explorers week 4). I have also attached some space themed art and craft ideas for those who enjoy some more practical activities.

Happy half-term! 

Hello Canute class, 

We've come to end of a very busy and very different half-term. I could not be any prouder of the way you have risen to the challenge of home learning. You are all superstars and deserve a rest!. Attached below is Liam's story 'Mummy Osborne's Pasties' - he has done such a wonderful job using our class text to write his own story. I'm sure he won't mind you having a read - well done Liam! 

There will be no home learning set this week to allow you and your parents a rest. The next set of home learning activities posted on the blog will be the week beginning the 1st June. 

Please keep checking your emails as this is how we will be communicating important information to you. Teachers have also been busy writing your annual school report so keep checking for these too!

The photograph this week shows Brynley out on one of our walks - he was amazed when he realised he could spread Dandelion seeds by blowing them!

I wish you all a wonderful half-term filled with fun and laughter.

Hello everyone,

We are in the final week of this half term. I am so proud of how you have adjusted to this new ‘normal’ and have risen to the challenge of home learning. You are all absolute superstars!

This week at home, Brynley, Belle and I made butterfly cakes, it turned out to be quite a challenge as we only had plain flour! Luckily, we had some baking powder so it wasn’t a complete disaster and Brynley and Belle certainly enjoyed eating them when we had finished!

 

Our photographs this week show some of the learning you have been getting up to at home, Tegan has been busy baking too and has also been helping Mummy in the garden. Liam was inspired by our learning about the Maasai tribe to create some small world people. Well done both of you!
