Overall Junior Star of the Week
Class 14 – Year 6 – Kian
Kian has worked extremely hard in all areas and always has his hand up to engage in classroom discussions or give his thoughts. He has a great attitude to work and wants to achieve in his learning. He has been very impressive in maths where he has taken on many greater depth problem-solving challenges and shown good logic and skills in the process. I have been very pleased with such a positive start to the year. A wonderful start Kian!

Class 13 –Year 6 – Summer-May
The star of the week this week for Class 13 is Summer-May. Summer only joined the school last week but has already settled in and started to display a wonderful attitude to learning. Summer has started her life at Penpol very positively, well-done Summer. Keep it up!
Class 4 have had an amazing start to the school year and are settling in really well. They are particularly enjoying their maths lessons this week. The topic is ‘counting and sorting’ and the children are trying to find as many different ways to sort the objects as they can. There has been some interesting ideas! Take a look…
I was working with Zack and we were sorting out the dominoes. We thought that we could put all the dominoes that were 6 on this side. Then Zack had to count the other spots. If it was 7, he put it in his circle. (Anya)
We sorted out the double numbers. We put double 2 on one side and double 4 on the other. (Poppy & Lottie)
The children found lots of different ways to sort the objects. Some chose to sort by colour or size. Others sorted according to length or shape. There were so many great ideas. I loved seeing the classroom buzzing with enthusiasm and listening to the mathematical talk going on.
Well done class 4. I’m very impressed!
Over the summer I took part in the Surf Life Saving GB National Championships. I wasn’t the only one from Penpol there either, Zara was there too!
I did the paddle board race and came third because of a really good wave! I also came fifth in the swim and I came fifth in the board relay. In the sprint I got into the semi finals and in the sprint relay I came fourth.
Because of all the people competing there were two big stages, one for board and one for swim, and we’d swap between the arenas. In between there was loads of really good music.
My favourite part of the whole day was my dad buying me a new board to celebrate coming third – it’s pink with stars.
