Blisland Primary Academy   Sunshine Circus!

by Julie Pearce

As we near the end of another wonderful year at Storytellers, we celebrated with a circus-themed day; the children all looked fantastic as they arrived as an array of clowns, acrobats and strong men! The children thoroughly enjoyed the large inflatable Circus, which housed a side, ball pool, obstacle course, and air shots. We had a delicious party lunch with a fabulous fruit elephant created by our clever cook, Sam!

A day full of laughter in the sunshine….what a perfect way to end the year.


Hugs thanks to the PTFA for making this possible and to all the parents and grandparents who support us throughout the year

Under the Sea

It was a fantastic evening of entertainment in the forest. This year we performed our version of the Little Mermaid. The children were incredible. The forest, set and costumes looked wonderful and the singing was exquisite. Thank you to everyone who helped in anyway. There were lots of happy faces!

In Art this week we have learned about the Japanese printing technique 'Hapa-Zome'. We used India Flint's printing work as our inspiration; finding out about a new artist for all of the children.

Next week is the final week of school for this academic year.  We are in school Monday and Tuesday. On Tuesday, the children leave at 1.30pm.

Tuesday morning will be our class party and our whole class reward for the Summer Term.

Please do email if you have any questions.

We can’t quite believe how fast the weeks are flying by in preschool, with only one more full week to go!

This week we have enjoyed our story ‘Clean Up!’ A story about Rocket and her family who visit their grandparents in the Caribbean.  Sadly, on a trip to the beach they see a turtle that has been washed up tangled in plastic.  Rocket is so saddened that she decides to enlist the help of all the people on the beach to do a big clean up!  This story gave us a meaningful way to become aware of the plastic pollution that is destroying the wildlife and beautiful oceans and beaches around the world.

The children were all very keen to tell us what they knew about helping to keep beaches clean and enjoyed some group activities to show what was the right thing to do and not the right thing.  We are so pleased to say that all the children knew not to leave their rubbish behind when visiting a beach, and even said they would love to take part in a beach clean-up themselves!

The children have also been busy with lots of math's activities during the week, and it has been lovely to hear some of their confidence growing when exploring numbers.

With our last full week in preschool, we are looking forward to lots of play and fun games with our older friends who are leaving us to go to Class 1 in September.  Luckily we know we will still get to see them often. 

A reminder that we have our graduation for our leavers at 11.30am on Tuesday 23rd July, this will be held in the Pumpkins room next door. Then followed by our teddy bears picnic out in our garden area.  If the weather is not suitable, we will be inside.  Please do bring a picnic blanket to sit on if you have one. 


We hope everyone has had an enjoyable weekend.

Year 6 have had a busy few weeks. There is always a lot going on at this time of year: the Summer Fayre, Sports Day, transition days to new secondary schools and SATs results to name a few.

Every-one in the Brunel Family is so incredibly proud of how well the children have done in their SATs. The hard work and dedication they have shown over the past 10 months has really paid off. Collectively, they have exceeded the National Average for results across all of the tests. Another huge thank-you goes out to everyone at home for the support and encouragement that has been in abundance throughout Year 6.

Another area of school life that the children have been hard at work on is their final show to mark the end of their time with us. It’s shaping up to be an epic battle of skill and stamina, one you will not want to miss. Make sure you have got your allocated tickets for Wednesday evenings gladiatorial extravaganza! The show begins at 6pm, so don’t be late.

Brunel's Got Talent and Homework

Just a reminder that our class round of Brunel's Got Talent is on Thursday morning this week so any props/costumes needed must be brought in. We are looking forward to seeing what the different individuals and groups have prepared!

Last week, we sent home some time homework sheets. I have said to the children that they need to keep practising time skills at home. They can keep these sheets until they are ready for them and I thought it would be useful for parents to see the level of time knowledge the children need in school for year 3. Time is an ongoing life-skill. That being said, of course we will continue to teach time in school, but it is definitely worthwhile to be constantly referring to time at home too as we can see that this has really helped some children to grasp the trickier concepts this year.

Please now keep the homework books-we have finished with them for this year.

Thank you.

SATS Superstars

We are incredibly proud of our year six pupils who have had their SATS results this week. We have worked extremely hard in school and in after school club. Each pupil was set their own targets and they put their all into achieving it. The process of setting high expectations and working hard towards it - with all the ups and downs - will set them up perfectly for the next stage of their learning journey. It is an absolute pleasure to see them succeed and all of us at Blisland Primary are extremely proud of each one them.

This week has been a great week in Canute Class.

The children enjoyed a great P.E. day with the ARENA team and were all very tired on Thursday morning, showing how they gave all of their energy to the day!

In English this week the Year 1 and 2 children spent the start of the week editing their aquarium recounts and have been putting their handwriting practice into action by creating some 'final' copies of their recounts, including their edits to share with Tregeagle next week.
In Drawing Cub Reception have been sharing the story of Captain Pugwash.  They have been using fantastic phonic skills to write some great words and sentences.  They've used their imaginations to think about what the dragon might've wanted to eat next and the friends he might meet on Dragon Island so that he doesn't feel lonely anymore.

In Maths, Reception have been learning about sharing and grouping, Year 1 have been consolidating their learning on time by reading analogue clocks and making o'clock and half past times on their own clocks.  Year 2 have completed their work on statistics and are now learning about position and direction.

In Art, the class used natural objects for weaving and have produced some lovely patterns.

In History we have continued to look at explorers from the past, we have created a timeline to show the events of Christopher Columbus' expedition to The Americas and dug deeper into Matthew Henson's expedition to the North Pole.

We had a super music session with Mrs Butlin, working with Tregeagle.

On Monday the school are very lucky to be having a second P.E. day with ARENA.

On Friday we have our Pirate Day, dig out your best costumes and practice your pirate vocabulary!

Summer 2

Despite the almost hectic feel to the week, the children have enjoyed the energy and excitement this brought. 

We had a brilliant Forest School session using tools to make wooden beads. The children listened carefully and every one followed the rules and instructions for safe handling of tools. There was a real positive energy and and sense of industriousness with the peeling of bark, sawing the wood and hollowing out the elder beads. 
This was our penultimate session and the children have come so far in their understanding of how to keep safe by following the rules and the enjoyment this brings as trust develops. I cannot wait to hear their final self-assessments following our last session next Thursday.

The classroom was a hive of DT activity with the children adding the stage of materials to their river projects. You can begin to see the landscape they are creating and their understanding of river features. You can follow their journey on SeeSaw and you will be able to see their final piece on Tuesday.

We had a visit from ARENA running a whole school Olympic Day. As always the children were fantastic, embracing the sports with enthusiasm and energy.

The morning was spent coding Micro Bits with our visitor from Cornwall Tech. The children used their prior learning well to learn new sills and knowledge in coding. We will re-visit these in the Autumn term to give the children the chance to embed the new learning.

Year 6 and a few friends went to Camel Creek for their end of year day out and Mrs Chasey had the rest of the class back at school. All the children had a god day, whether this was sprinting around the adventure trying out all the rides getting soaked on the water flume and eating ice cream or back at school using DT skills and knowledge of levers and pulleys to create an underwater diorama with moving features.

Have a lovely weekend - enjoy the football!

Summer 2

It has been a very busy but hugely enjoyable week at school. Both classes are working full steam to complete their current learning enquiries and there is a real sense of purpose and focus throughout the class. The children are keen to complete all the learning set out on their learning maps which helps keep the momentum going in between visits and visitors.

On Wednesday, we had a whole school Olympic Day with ARENA and as always the sports coaches were impressed with the enthusiasm and skills shown by the children. The sports coaches left at the end of the day knowing all about the Bridge School Games, how Polruan won and having been shown the trophy!

Thursday morning, Tregeagle class had a visit from Robert Wiltshire from Tech Cornwall and they spent the morning working collaboratively to write code for Micro Bits. Once again, the visitor was impressed with the children's prior knowledge and skills and how confidently they navigate the world of computer science. We will make use of the new skills gained in the autumn term as we now have a full school set of Micro Bits to enhance the learning for both KS1 and KS2 ICT curriculum.

On Friday, the Year 6 had the annual trip to Camel Creek to celebrate their friendships and time at Polruan Primary. They had a super day in the sunshine, spending lots of energy charging round the park to maximise time and finished the day with several repeat rides on the water ride and ice creams courtesy of a parent - yum!

What was Farming in Cornwall like in the Past?

What a whirlwind of a week Landaviddy class have had! 

To continue our enquiry question 'What's On Our Doorstep?' during our Wider Curriculum lesson this week, we discovered what Farming was like in Cornwall in the past but examining photographic evidence. We compared photographs and began to develop our oracy skills through discussion.

In Art, we sketched repeated patterns we observed around us and then cut out a motif to be used as a stamp for a repeated, rotated print. We learnt about how our muscles contract and relax in Science. Can you recall what the muscles in your arms are called? What happens to them when you bend your arm?

We also got in the pool this week on a sunny Thursday afternoon, despite the rain for most of the week! We worked on our breath work and enjoyed playing water tag.

In Maths, Year 2 have been exploring telling the time to o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. Year 3 have been measuring in m, cm and mm.

English *BREAKING NEWS* - We received a letter from 'Peter Pluto' this week, detailing that aliens are planning to destroy Cornwall's natural environment, to make way for the galaxy's first ever milky-way supermarket! We couldn't believe it! So next week, we will be planning and writing persuasive letters to try and change their minds!

Congratulations to Emma and Flora for being chosen as Landaviddy's People of the Week. And a big well done to Reuben for his 55 club and Anya for her 66 club!

Reminder - On Monday 15th July is a mufti day, where we will be asking for donations of an item matching your child's house team colour to create hampers for raffles prizes. Children can wear their own clothes and this could include wearing their house colour. 

We hope you have a super weekend and look forward to seeing you all next week!

We have enjoyed another fun-filled week of learning in Penhallow this week. 

We completed our weaving topic in art where we made woven Rainbow Fish. The children worked together brilliantly and the classroom looks AMAZING!

On Thursday, we managed to make the most of a break in the weather and enjoy a lovely swim in the pool where we practiced submerging as much as we felt comfortable. The children enjoyed being fireworks and singing heads, shoulders, knees and toes!

In Maths, we have started our topic on measurement, looking at money firstly, before we move onto our final topic of time this week. All children have done brilliantly in their end of year consolidation work. Well done to our 'People of the Week' this week who have showed brilliant examples of our school values. Well done, Evie G, Ada and Rosie. 

I have attached copies of this term's KIRFs, these are Key Instant Recall Facts that the children should be able to recall instantly. They will help the children in their maths journey. 

We look forward to our trip to the National Marine Aquarium on Tuesday. If you haven't returned your child's permission slip, please do this on Monday. Payment is set up on Parentpay. The children are very excited for both the coach journey and Aquarium visit (I am too)!

We have a MUFTI day on Monday where the children are invited to wear non uniform and if possible, wear something to represent your house colour. In exchange they should bring something in to be included in a raffle for our Summer Fair next week. This should be something that is the colour of their house. There are examples in last weeks Head's emails. (e.g. I am in Willow so I will bring something in Yellow for the raffle). I have attached a list if you are unsure what house/colour your child is in. 

We hope you enjoy a lovely weekend!

Up, up and away...

This week has just flown by. As part of our enquiry into Crime and Punishment, Chaipel have been learning about the 'inmates' of Bodmin Jail in the run up to our school trip. They enjoyed learning about the crimes that were committed and have been discussing whether the punishment did in fact fit the crime. In many cases, not.

On Thursday, we had an amazing school trip to the jail. The trip leader couldn't believe how much we knew and it was so exciting to actually stand in the jail that the people we had researched actually stayed in. We tried out some 'hard labour' and agreed that it was not something that we ever wanted to do!

As a special surprise, we then detoured - on the way back to school - to Bodmin Airfield where a biplane was waiting for Miss Randle to take to the skies and flutter the WW1 poetry we had written earlier this year. It was a chance in a lifetime and we were proud to be the class that was there to witness this!

Our Transition morning, on Friday, went very well and it was lovely to meet Chaipel's new recruits. 

The guys have been super busy preparing for their Leaver's Assembly next week. We look forward to seeing all of you on Wednesday for a tearful farewell and celebration of their time at Polperro Primary. There is a 'pool and pizza' party afterwards, though, so I'm sure that the Y6s will soon recover!

That's all from me, have a lovely weekend.

How is this final term almost over?  Time is flying!

I think it's fair to say everyone had a lovely transition morning today and we've had another VERY busy week!

Year 4 have just finished their unit on position and movement and will begin time next week.
 Year 5 have completed their unit on volume and are preparing to start their final unit of negative numbers... Yay!

Talland have edited and improved their poems about the Paris Olympic Games and I can't wait to see them written up in top copy - the children's use of rhythm and rhyme is fabulous.

We've had fun in art by creating space themed creatures using a method called, 'painting by scissors' and they have used wax crayons to create a colourful pattern - this pattern has now been painted black, ready to scratch some creative patterns into, which are based on their space creatures.   

Year 5 have had interesting lessons today based on the human anatomy and self esteem - be prepared to hear all about it!

Year 4 have been using the eight points of a compass to solve problems on a map and then have created their own treasure maps - really fun!

Well done to Skye for being noticed as our enthusiastic child of the week and great work from Frankie and Chilali for earning their next 99 club badge!

That's about it from Talland class this week. We hope you have a brilliant weekend and (if you're watching) enjoy the final... COME ON ENGLAND!

Signing off from Mr. Langley, Mr. Bishop and Mrs. Hodge.

It's Coming Home... 

Well, tractors are definitely coming home!!  We hope you enjoy looking at the children's own designs.  They had to include axel and wheels that move - some moved too well as they played with them and then the wheels dropped off!  But the children all really enjoyed designing and making them.  Today they evaluated their own work, thinking about what worked and what was less successful!

In Science, we set up an experiment to see what seeds actually need to grow... Some seeds have light and water, some just water (no light) and the last set of seeds have not water, but they have lots of sun!  We'll update you next week with our results.

Friday 12th July 

Some of this weeks amazing learning!

Year one children have been exploring features of a poster this week in English. They have been revisiting how important it is to stay safe on the beach and what important job the RNLI does. They have been identifying features and remembering how to use capital letters and full stops when writing their sentences. The children then used their knowledge to plan a poster that they wanted to write and today they created a wonderful poster including lots of information about water safety and the RNLI.

In maths the children have been exploring time, they started the week using words such as before, after, first and next. They then explored days of the week and months of the year. They used calendars to work out what date and days activities were taking place!

The Year 1 children have also been writing postcards from the point of view of Victorians this week and recalling all their knowledge about how visiting the beach was different in the Victorian times.

The foundation children have been using so many wonderful skills this week, they have made beautiful decoupage shells with Mrs Gregory, the children had to think carefully how to apply the glue to the shell, cut out their chosen picture and then paste it together, they have turned out beautiful. The children have also been making repeated patterns in maths, using their memory and recall skills in beach pairs, they have been labelling pictures for Miss Hughes and making wonderful beach scenes.

In phonics the children have continued to work really hard. Some children are on assessment weeks and some children continue to work hard to use their phonic knowledge to read tricky words and write amazing sentences.

The children continue to make us proud every day with their effort.

Next week will be our last full week of the academic year and we have lots of amazing and fun learning planned!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend

Foundation /year 1 team.
