Our brilliant school council planned and organised some amazing fund-raising events for Children In Need. These included: mufti,decorate a cake, apple bobbing, a Pudsey treasure hunt, homemade Pudseys and, of course, a brave bunch were 'splatted'!
They raised just over £295- a new record! Well done to all who helped out.
Children from lots of our classes have been working hard, making Christmas decorations for our tree at Tre Pol Pen. For those of you who don't recognise the name, it is a restaurant and farm shop between Callington and Launceston. The trees will be show cased in a Christmas shopping event which is on Thursday 5th December from 5pm. Why not come along and see our fabulous tree in the flesh!
Take a look at the fantastic artwork that was successful in the recent Callington Honey Fair art competition.
Some of you took the opportunity to meet two of our Local Governing body last week. For those of you who were unable to make it, I would like to introduce you to Mr Stephen Corcoran, our Chair of Governors and Mrs Caroline Lake, our EYFS Governor. You can also contact Stephen, via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next 'chat to the Governors' session is on 28th January 2020 at 12.00 noon- all welcome!
This is the blurb of 'The Peckish Dinosaur' from Cherry Hill Farm Books. This book contains our children's art work.
At the end of the term we say a sad and fond goodbye to Mrs Georgina Facey. Georgina has been Delaware's Lollipop lady for an incredible 29 years- helping our pupils to cross the busy road outside of the school in all weathers! We had a cream tea in honour of her superb dedication to duty and presented her with a special engraved vase.
We would like to thank you for taking the time to complete our Summer 2019 parent questionnaire. We have collated the information, you have kindly provided and can now share the results with you. Your comments and suggestions help to support the school and Trust in their continued effort to improve and develop areas within current systems to enrich parental communications and reach out to wider audiences. Here are just a few of your comments, so thank you once again for your valuable contribution.

Pupils from our Y4/Y5 class have worked with local author, Feina Merritt to produce some co-characters for her latest book- 'The Peckish Dinosaur'. Each child drew their own dinosaur and these feature in Feina's book. All of the pupils who drew a dinosaur are credited in the book- what a brilliant achievement!
Each year the lovely lifeguards from the RNLI visit our school to remind the children how to stay safe on a trip to the beach.
They learn about the meaning of the flags that the lifeguards put on the beaches, what to do if they were to get caught in a riptide and how to stay safe on a sunny day (The Slip, Slap, Slop drill). They always use a fun delivery behind a serious message.
Pupils from our Y4/Y5 class spent the morning at the Tamar Valley Centre collecting bugs and taking part in Forest School activities. We are so lucky to have such beautiful places so close to our school to extend our pupils' learning.
We are inspired by the awe and wonder of the world.
We are bold and innovative in our approach to find new solutions to the challenges we face.
We are the best we can be.
We take responsibility for our actions in an environment of mutual respect.
We overcome all barriers to reach our potential, developing a capacity to improve further.
We are passionate about learning.
