A word from the Principal...


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

ready to learn which is great to see.

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

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

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

progressing with their learning.

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

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

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

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

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

Grace in the office.

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

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

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

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

has been going on in our next newsletter.

Kind regards,

Adam Anderson

This week the Rainbow Class have

been very excited about Halloween!

We had fun making our own magic

potions, listening to stories, learning

about how other people celebrate Halloween,

making and tasting pumpkin



Year 2 have been making their own

story books about plastic pollution in

our oceans. They planned,published

and have illustrated them. They also

used the Chromebooks to select their

front cover image.

This week Year 2 have looked at how

Lego is made and the benefits of plastic.

They then created an animal using

the Lego.

Year 3 have been observing and

experimenting with light in recent

weeks. We have found that light

sources produce light which is the

fastest thing on the planet. However,

UV light (Ultra Violet) can be both

beneficial to us but also harmful to our

eyes and skin. We know that the sun

is the main producer of UV light and

is also the closest star to our planet

which is why it looks so big. We can

see all objects due to light reflecting

from surfaces and into our eyes.


Y4 have been working on some beautiful

artwork this week. They have

produced stunning pastel images depicting

what the sea could look like if

it weren’t for plastic pollution.

Geography - Class 5 have been learning

about places and features of the

United Kingdom. The children can

name all of the countries in the United

Kingdom and talk in depth about

the physical and human features that

exist across the lands.

Big Write - This week the children

completed a descriptive piece of writing

based around Halloween. They

were very scary and very imaginative.


In RE, we have been looking at Buddhism

and the Eightfold Path. We

discussed the meaning of the eight

practices and which of these we follow

in our own lives. Each group then created

a freeze frame to represent each

practice and we had to guess which

practice they were representing. Afterwards,

we reflected on which practices

we would like to start following

in our day to day lives.

Parking in the Community

Please be considerate when parking in our local community at the start and end of the

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

for KS1 and KS2 and have built the community path. There have been several incidents

this year of driveways and garages being blocked and residents being verbally

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

Please use the Community Centre Car Park at busy times and make the short

walk to the school. Thank you for your support.

Ludgvan Parish Council Logo Design Competition

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

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

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

to get involved and have an impact in our local community.

Children in Need

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

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

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