Year 6: Birch, Elm

Welcome to year Six!

Your teachers are: Mr Craig & Mrs Collidge  

22nd September 2023

NB: Please remember that we have swimming every morning next week: you should send your child to school with their swimsuit under their school clothes, along with spare underwear, a towel and goggles. If you have not yet given consent or paid, please do so via the app.


The children worked really hard in school this week, and we all enjoyed a fabulous day out in Porthcurno on Thursday - the highlight of the year so far!


When we arrived in Porthcurno, we split into our two classes for an electricity workshop - putting into practice the science we have covered over the past weeks and then moving our learning forward - and a tour of the museum and 'bunker'. Both activities were a lot of fun and were enjoyed by all (we all wanted more time!). In between the activities, we enjoyed a packed lunch in the park, where we met 'Morgy' the squid-like art installation!


Next, we walked up to the Minack Theatre (still in the sun - despite the miserable forecast!) where we were  thoroughly immersed in a fabulous performance of 'Fup', the story of a grandad, his adopted grandson and a peculiar duck!


We then made our way down to the beautiful Porthcurno beach, where we had ten minutes to enjoy the sun... before the rain began to lash down on us, forcing us to beat a hasty retreat to the Logan Rock Inn! We followed the coastpath a mile uphill to Treen - where we could finally take shelter!


We were met at the pub by the proprieter, who had managed to secure funding for our delicious evening meal, ice cream and drinks! On top of that, it was all served by some of the Cornish Pirates first team, who were happy to answer questions and tell jokes!


Finally, tired and ready to go, we boarded the coach for the long journey back!


Have a great weekend,

Mr Craig & Mrs Collidge
