Class 6 have been learning in the great outdoors

Class 6 have enjoyed learning outdoors.

Class 6 have had a great start to the new term. They are really enjoying taking their learning outside where they have been able to calculate a variety of number problems and then discuss their reasoning.

The children have also been busy collecting and recording facts about polar bears and discovering who built the first castles in the U.K.

Well done Class 6, I am very proud of you all for making a great start to the new term

Sports Day 2020

2020 brought around a slightly different kind of sports day. Over 100 of our pupils took part in first ever Rainbow games, both at home and in school.

The day consisted of children competing in for their houses in a range of throwing, jumping and running activities alongside some cross-curricular olympic themed activities such as designing/cooking a healthy meal; researching one of the continents; creating banner and posters to show their support for their house.

A brilliant event with many children engaging in the activities. Over 18000 points were shared between the 4 houses with less than 100 separating first and second.

Results are announced in the below video!

A big ‘WOOF’ from Betsy

Hello again everyone, I hope you are all well and still enjoying your home learning challenges.

Since I last wrote to you, I have had a few days that were lovely and also a few days where I chose to be  a bit naughty and I ended up in a little  bit of trouble.

Last Monday, when my family were very busy, I began to feel  a little bored, so I  decided  to have a little roam around my house.  I suddenly noticed that someone had left the bathroom door open and I saw some white paper hanging from the wall. I went up to the paper and grabbed it in my mouth.  I then started to run out of the bathroom door with the paper following behind. Oh what fun I had playing with that paper, I felt so happy, until I heard someone shout ‘Betsy’. I looked up and saw my family staring down at me. They didn’t look very happy.

 

My family then decided that perhaps it would be better for me to  go outside and get some fresh air,  before I got myself in to any more trouble. I was so excited when I saw that I was going to my favourite place, the beach.

I had so much fun at the beach running and rolling around in the sand but because I have a long coat, I had to have a bath before I went to bed.  When I lay down in my basket, I felt quite excited as I had heard my family saying that tomorrow was going to be a special  day and that they were all going to  be baking delicious buns for everyone to eat.

 

 

When I woke up in the morning everyone was really busy, in the kitchen, baking and there was such a lovely smell coming from the oven. I looked through the oven door and I could see some of my favourite buns being cooked. I wanted to just sit and watch them cook but no luck, ‘Walkies Betsy”.

Although I wanted to sit and watch the buns cooking, it was great to get outside in the fresh air and get some morning exercise.

On the way back from my walk, my owner decided to let me off the lead so that I could walk on my own. Suddenly, I could smell those delicious buns and I just knew that I had to have one ,as my mouth was beginning to water.  I started to run home as fast as I could and there, outside of my garden, was a table all decorated with blue, red and white flags and on the top was a tray full of buns with icing on the top. I thought to myself, ‘This must be the special day celebrations that I heard my family talking about”. I just couldn’t wait any longer, I jumped up and  started to eat the buns, licking the icing off first. Suddenly I heard someone shout, “Betsy, those buns were for the V.E day celebrations, now we will have to make some more. I know now that I shouldn’t have taken the buns but they were just looking and smelling so delicious, I couldn’t help myself. Next time, I will wait for my owner to give me one. I think I should now try to stay out of mischief for a while.

 

________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Hello everyone at Penpol School, I hope you are all o.k and enjoying all of your home learning challenges. I really am missing all of my extra cuddles and also seeing everyones smiley faces.

At this strange time, I am also not allowed to go outside and do all of the fun things that I used to enjoy doing. Some days,  I often sit and look out of my window,  wishing things could get back to normal and I could go outside to play and visit everyone  at Penpol School, where I love to be made a fuss of.

Although I miss going outside and not visiting Penpol School, I have enjoyed being at home with my family, where I have also been learning new challenges and practicing old tricks. When the sun was shining,  I was so lucky to go down to the beach and play fetch. This is one of my favourite games, especially when the ball goes in to the sea.

Another trick that I have been practicing is  ‘Stay’ and ‘Here”.  This is a good trick, as I get to sit or stand in the same position and then when I hear the command  ‘Here’ I have to run to my owner.  They always give me a big cuddle when I run up to them.

Although I am really happy most days, being at home and learning with my family, some times I feel a bit sad and fed up and just don’t want to get out of bed, especially when it is raining.

On these days, I always tell my family how I am feeling so that they can help me and give me things to do that will stop me worrying and make me feel better. Last week, when I felt really sad, my family let me watch some horse racing on the television.

It was so exciting watching all of the horses galloping down the track and then jumping over the fences. After watching the horses, I felt so much happier and couldn’t wait to get started on my next learning challenge followed by playing in the garden and then having plenty of  cuddles and playtime with my family.

Well I hope you have all enjoyed reading about what I’ve been up to at home. Perhaps you would like to send some photographs of your pets to Mrs Ruffell, so that she can share them with me and everyone else on  the Penpol Times.
