Our Year One teacher is Mrs Pulley and our classroom assistant is Mrs Beach who also supervises us at lunchtimes.

We will update our pages regularly and hope you will visit us again soon!

The main focus of our learning for the second half of this term is mining which fits nicely into our featured topic of 'What's Underneath Our Feet?'.
We visited Geevor Tin Mine, Pendeen for the day and were allowed to explore the tunnels, use the train and even pan for gold!
We wrote our own underground stories featuring Cornish 'knockers' (mythical creatures), wrote mining poems, made engine houses out of cardboard and even composed our own 'mine music'!
Also this term, we have continued our swimming lessons, visited the Parish Church, made Cornish pasties and were paid a visit by violinist Hannah Birt who performed to us in the classroom. 
We hope you enjoy looking at our work...
The slideshows below are a little 'taster' of some of the work we can look forward to over the next few months.
Our focus for the first half of term was volcanoes. We discovered how they are formed, what lava is and how fast it flows. We carried out a variety of experiments to help us learn about forces.
Our focus in literacy was 'Miss Fanshawe and the Great Dragon Adventure. We used the storyline to create our own volcano adventure stories while focusing on our sentence openers, letter formation and our use of verbs, adjectives and punctuation.
Our parents and carers came in to school to take part in two workshops to help us recreate Miss Fanshawe's hot air balloon using papier mache - that was great fun as you can imagine...!
Using our imagination to create our own dragons, we wrote poems to describe what they look like and enjoyed expressing ourselves through some 'dragon art'!
Finding out about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated lead us to more dragons and some very tempting, tasty treats...! Our School Cook Saskia also prepared a lovely Chinese Banquet for the whole school - yummy!
