School Closure 

Friday was such an unusual and unprecedented day at school. We said goodbye to the children and we have no idea when we will see them again. My thoughts were especially with the Y6 as this could have possibly been their final day at Primary school.
Please continue to check back onto the website regularly where learning suggestions will be posted. Learning will be posted in class blogs.
The school is open for those children of key workers bit the advice remains that the safest place for your child to be is at home. 
Please listen to the Government advice - stay at home and stay safe.
Looking forward to seeing you all again when normality returns.



Songfest 2020

Eight of our brilliant Y5 pupils took part in Cornwall Music Hub's annual Songfest. They performed to a packed Launceston Town Hall on 10th March as part of a large choir of local schools. They performed a range of popular songs from a range of groups and ended with a spectacular medley from 'The Greatest Showman.' Thank you to Miss Owen for teaching the children the songs.


St. Piran's Day Celebrations 

'There's something about a pasty'

Staff and children from Delaware and Gunnislake got together on the afternoon of March 6th to celebrate (a day late) St. Piran's Day. We were treated to an afternoon of singing and dancing accompanied by the very talented 'Rubber Band'. One of the afternoon's highlights was singing 'There's something about a pasty' and passing around the giant papier mache model!


World Book Day 

World Book Day

Delaware was visited by The Cat in the Hat who read us a great story called The Sand Horse for world book day (ok it was Mrs Nash!) Lots of us dressed up as our favourite book characters and The General Reading Agency organised lots of fun activities at lunchtime. Happy World Book Day to all!


Splatted for Children In Need! 

Children In Need

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.


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 

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!


Honey Fair Winners 

Take a look at the fantastic artwork that was successful in the recent Callington Honey Fair art competition.


Meet the Governors 

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 stephen.corcoran1@btinternet.com.
The next 'chat to the Governors' session is on 28th January 2020 at 12.00 noon- all welcome!


The Peckish Dinosaur 

This is the blurb of 'The Peckish Dinosaur' from Cherry Hill Farm Books. This book contains our children's art work.


Bye Bye Georgina! 

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.
