Year 6 Enterprise Objects
 
Our year 6 children were set a challenge this term to produce, promote, create and sell products and services in and around school starting with just £5.
 
There have been all sorts of amazing ideas including cake and fresh popcorn sales, raffles, guess the sweets in a jar, chocolate treats at break time, second-hand book sales and our work of the week went to a very successful bird box and bird seed project. The budding entrepreneur made his very own bird boxes and sold them after school and in his local neighbourhood - a fantastic amount of work and effort went into making his project a great success! 
 
2019 Residential
 
Some of our year 5 and 6 children went on their residential trip to the Eden Project and YHA last week. They had glorious weather to make the most of exploring the outside areas and made some fantastic dens.
Our fantastic surf/beach day with Global Boarders in Newquay
 
We had an amazing day of surfing and learning valuable life skills and beach safety awareness....the sun even shone for us after a week of rain!
WOW!
 
Our Work of the Work can be seen by clicking the link below. It is a fantastic piece of writing by one of our year 6 girls, who was inspired by the Kerdroya workshop and the visit by Jenny Beare and author Will Coleman.
We have been very privileged and honoured to take part in the Kerdroya project with Golden Tree and recently received  the following message:
Many thanks for recently welcoming Golden Tree into your classroom to teach about the humble Cornish hedge. It was great to see children working with a local master hedger to restore a stretch of Cornish hedge, and learn about their environmental, historical and cultural importance. 
 
As you may be aware, later this year work will begin on our Kerdroya Cornish Landscape Labyrinth up at Colliford Lake on Bodmin Moor - a 50m diameter classical labyrinth built entirely from Cornish hedging. We have just released a video on our social media channels, giving a glimpse into our schools work and announcing the Kerdroya labyrinth.
 
The links to the videos can be found below.

Kiberick Class Residential 2019
Eden project and YHA
 
Below are some details for the workshops that our Kiberick class campers will be taking part in at their residential at The Eden Project in June.
SATs Big Brain Breakfast
 
Year 6 children had a great start to each day of the end of key stage 2 assessments this week.
 
A gourmet banquet of croissant, pancakes, fruit, toast and cereal was prepared by our lovely parent helpers and Mrs Hawkins. Everyone tucked in with hearty appetites.
 
"They did lovely cooking!"
 
"It calmed us down before we did the assessments"
 
Furthermore we all enjoyed the company of the parents - it made the atmosphere comforting and fun.
Summer 1. Star Wars
 

Kiberick class have made a tremendous start on their Star Wars topic.

 

To 'launch' our topic we made board games inspired by the themes in Star Wars.  It was great fun with lots of learning. First,  we had to research the themes in Star Wars, then we discussed the features of existing board games and how we could use these features in our creations.  Once we began to make the games it involved lots of planning, problem solving and collaboration. We were so delighted with our games that we invited our families in to play the games. This was thoroughly enjoyed by all who were able to attend. 

 

 

Kiberick Homework
Summer 1. Kiberick's homework task this half term is to design and build a space craft. 
 
Below is a photo of the first person in Kiberick to bring their space craft in - what a great example! He made it out a recycled toy car that no longer worked. The class were very impressed with it, especially the fact that it had a motor and could move! 
Happy new year everybody and welcome back! 
 
THE GREAT WAR!
This term in Kiberick we will be looking at the topic of WW1. We will begin our English unit by watching the film (please see the trailor to the film in another post) and then we will be immersing ourselves within the book 'War Horse' by Michael Morpurgo using our talk 4 writing approach. In history we will be learning all about how the first world war started and what role a man my the name of Franz Ferdinand played . Kiberick will also find out all about the battle of the Somme and trence warfare. We will go on a trip to the Cornwall Regimental Museum where we will have a tailored WW1 experience delivered just for us! Within geography we will look at the dramatic impact the war had on the landscape and investigate exactly where WW1 took place. Finally, within science we will learn all about animals and their habitats and find out all about what a huge role animals played in WW1.

Ancient Greeks!
Welcome back! I hope you have had a fabulous summer break and are excited to start your adventure through Ancient Greece this term. Throughout the term we will explore a variety of Greek myths by fully immersing ourselves within the talk 4 writing process. We will explore where Greece is and make comparison between there and Cornwall, identifying similarities and difference along the way. We will finish our Greek topic by holding a Greek day where children will dress in traditional ancient Greek clothes and eat traditional Greek food. 
We had a visit on Tuesday from the Kerdroya team for the Cornish Hedge Project that we are delighted to be part of this term. Thank you to Jenny for delivering a fantastic workshop to the children, explaining what the project entails and what to expect on our trip next week.
 
Below is a summary from Kerdroya outlining the whole project.
