Active Advent 2019

As the festive period begins and we all start eating chocolate for breakfast (myself included) why not have a go at an advent calendar of a different kind.

My Active Advent is something you will be doing in class with your teachers but why not have a go at home, particularly over the weekends and as we get closer to Christmas when the holidays begin!

This post will be added too with videos and photos of you guys getting active over the next few weeks! The calendar can be found at the bottom of the page. We are also behind on two days, so just like your chocolates, tine to catch up!

Enjoy!

 

Yr 5 have an awesome time at Porthpean

The eagerly anticipated Y5 Penpol Camp took place last week at Porthpean and what an enjoyable trip it was!

On the first day, the children (and the teachers) took part in climbing and archery before a feast of a tea – a delightful roast dinner. After a contented sleep, drifting off to the sounds of three tractors working away in the field next to us, we woke, had a full English and got on with the day.

Day 2 consisted of cycling, problem solving and a rather exhilarating high-ropes course. It was great to see children and adults push their comfort boundaries with this. In the evening, Penpol, led by dance expert Rocky, busted some moves on the dance floor at the disco before a peaceful sleep ensued.

After packing in the morning of the last day and another fine full english, it was down to the beach to take part in some paddle-boarding, kayaking or coasteering, complete with slate-made make-up!

It was a superb few days made all the better by the glorious weather and friendly experts who guided us through each activity. Thank you, Porthpean!

Wimbledon Fever at Penpol

Tennis fever has taken hold at Penpol School. Since Easter we have been running a KS2 tennis club which has been very well attended by children from year 4 to 6. The children  have learnt to play a series of shots and have progressed to combining them to play structured games against each other.

Alongside the club sessions, many of the classes including Years 1, 4, 5 and 6 have received specialist coaching from Sarah Arnold at Hayle Tennis Club, which they have certainly enjoyed.

It’s wonderful seeing so many children having a go, and enjoying tennis. The club are over the moon with the number of children engaging in clubs and lessons though the link with Penpol School- Mrs Sarah Hampshire, Hayle Tennis Club Chairperson
