We Will Remember Them- 11th November 2019

On Sunday 11th November, ten Y6 pupils represented Penpol School in the Hayle remembrance service. This two part service started at St Elwyns Church where two children read poems as part of the service. These poems were once that they had written themselves in class the week previous.

The service then proceeded to parse down to the Hayle War Memorial. It was here the children listened to the names of people from Hayle, who had given their lives during WW1 and WW2 and listened to the last post. After the minutes silence the children laid a wreath on behalf of the Penpol School Community and planted crosses in front of the memorial.

 

The importance of Remembrance Sunday is particularly significant ¬†for the children in year 6 who have spend this term studying ‘Wartime Britain’ as a topic. This has involved poppy art, wreath making, writing letters from the trenches and writing remembrance poems.

The service was well respected by all the pupils who attended alongside members of the community where their maturity and manner where positively commented on by numerous members of the public.

Year 2 enjoy a visit from the Cat’s Protection League

As part of their science topic ‘Animals including Humans’, the children in Year 2 had an exciting visit today from the Cat’s Protection League. The children heard all about the hard and caring work the volunteers do to help lost and stray cats and were then informed how we, as ¬†cat owners, should care for cats and kittens¬†correctly.

Mrs Ruffell and Mrs Daniel would like to say a big thank you for all of the lovely donations received for the Cat’s Protection League. They were very grateful for your generosity.

 

 

Class 6 get creative

As part of their English and art lessons, ¬†Class 6 have been listening to the story ‘The Adventures of Egg Box Dragon’, written by Richard Adams. The children enjoyed listening to how the character, Emma, made her own dragon out of an egg box and then acknowledging the importance of writing a clear set of instructions for others to follow. The children had a great time planning and then selecting a variety of materials to make an Egg Box Dragon of their own.

 

Year 2 enjoy their visit to Hayle Pilot Gig Club

This term Year 2 have been learning all about the champion rower ¬†Ann Glanville.¬†Ann was born in Saltash and was married to John Glanville, who worked as a waterman ‚Äď someone who rowed people and cargo across the River Tamar. Together they had 14 children and when John became ill Ann took his job to provide money for their family. She was tall, strong and very good at rowing.

To help the children identify what life may have been like for Ann, the children had a  very informative trip down to the Hayle Pilot Gig Club.

 

Year 5 have been learning about the Ancient Greeks

This term both Year 5 classes have been learning about the Ancient Greeks.  As part of this learning they have built their very own Greek Temples using Keynote on computer and have created these gorgeous animations for you to enjoy.

Each child took a different Greek figure and designed a temple just for them.  They then did some research online to create a short fact card for each person.

So sit back, relax and enjoy learning about famous Greek figures whilst marvelling at some stunning animations.  Well done Year 5.

Class 6 will not be beaten by the weather!

Despite the awful weather conditions, Class 6 had an enjoyable day out at Trevaskis Farm. During their visit the children heard interesting facts about a range of fruit and vegetables and then went to meet some of the animals, who were brave enough to venture out in the rain to meet them.  Before heading back to school, the children got to pick and eat  the best strawberry they could find.

Class 4 enjoy World Book Day
