A word from the Principal...<br />

Welcome,<br />

I hope you all had an enjoyable half term. The children have come back to school recharged and<br />

ready to learn which is great to see.<br />

Prior to half term you had the first formal opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher for the<br />

first time in our parents’ consultations. The feedback I received was very positive and I hope these<br />

meetings gave you an insight into how your child has settled into their new class and how they are<br />

progressing with their learning.<br />

We signed off last half term with the FLS Monsters Ball Discos. Both the KS1 and KS2 events were<br />

incredibly well supported, so thank you for allowing your children to attend and and to those of you<br />

who helped during the evening, it is very much appreciated. The FLS run lots of events like this<br />

through the year, with all proceeds going towards improving our school. However, their numbers<br />

are low, so if you are able to help the FLS in any capacity, please let Gail Terry know or speak to<br />

Grace in the office.<br />

This week, we held our cake stall to raise money for a memorial flower garden for Mrs Gee. Thank<br />

you to all of you who sent in cakes or money or attended the cake stall, it was hugely successful<br />

and we raised over £350. Raffle tickets will continue to be on sale until Wednesday.<br />

This half term is one of the busiest of the year and I am looking forward to telling you about what<br />

has been going on in our next newsletter.<br />

Kind regards,<br />

Adam Anderson<br />

EYFS<br />

This week the Rainbow Class have<br />

been very excited about Halloween!<br />

We had fun making our own magic<br />

potions, listening to stories, learning<br />

about how other people celebrate Halloween,<br />

making and tasting pumpkin<br />

soup.<br />

Y2<br />

Year 2 have been making their own<br />

story books about plastic pollution in<br />

our oceans. They planned,published<br />

and have illustrated them. They also<br />

used the Chromebooks to select their<br />

front cover image.<br />

This week Year 2 have looked at how<br />

Lego is made and the benefits of plastic.<br />

They then created an animal using<br />

the Lego.

Y3<br />

Year 3 have been observing and<br />

experimenting with light in recent<br />

weeks. We have found that light<br />

sources produce light which is the<br />

fastest thing on the planet. However,<br />

UV light (Ultra Violet) can be both<br />

beneficial to us but also harmful to our<br />

eyes and skin. We know that the sun<br />

is the main producer of UV light and<br />

is also the closest star to our planet<br />

which is why it looks so big. We can<br />

see all objects due to light reflecting<br />

from surfaces and into our eyes.<br />

Y4<br />

Y4 have been working on some beautiful<br />

artwork this week. They have<br />

produced stunning pastel images depicting<br />

what the sea could look like if<br />

it weren’t for plastic pollution.

Y5<br />

Geography - Class 5 have been learning<br />

about places and features of the<br />

United Kingdom. The children can<br />

name all of the countries in the United<br />

Kingdom and talk in depth about<br />

the physical and human features that<br />

exist across the lands.<br />

Big Write - This week the children<br />

completed a descriptive piece of writing<br />

based around Halloween. They<br />

were very scary and very imaginative.<br />

Y6<br />

In RE, we have been looking at Buddhism<br />

and the Eightfold Path. We<br />

discussed the meaning of the eight<br />

practices and which of these we follow<br />

in our own lives. Each group then created<br />

a freeze frame to represent each<br />

practice and we had to guess which<br />

practice they were representing. Afterwards,<br />

we reflected on which practices<br />

we would like to start following<br />

in our day to day lives.

Other news...<br />

Parking in the Community<br />

Please be considerate when parking in our local community at the start and end of the<br />

day. We appreciate it gets very busy, which is why we have staggered ends of the day<br />

for KS1 and KS2 and have built the community path. There have been several incidents<br />

this year of driveways and garages being blocked and residents being verbally<br />

abused. This is not acceptable behaviour and not what we want to model for our children.<br />

Please use the Community Centre Car Park at busy times and make the short<br />

walk to the school. Thank you for your support.<br />

Ludgvan Parish Council Logo Design Competition<br />

The Parish Council have been in contact and would like our input to design their new<br />

logo. You should have received a letter with a design space on it this week. This is for<br />

you and your child to design a logo and enter the compeition. It is a great opportunity<br />

to get involved and have an impact in our local community.<br />

Children in Need<br />

Children in Need is on the 15th November. We will be doing our bit by wearing pyjamas<br />

for the day in return for a £1 donation. This is charity that does great work and<br />

one that we do our best to support every year. Thank you.
