Kiberick class - Year 4, 5 and 6
Kiberick and Pendower Poetry Workshop
The amazing autumn inspired us to create wonderful poetry. We used lots of adventurous adjectives, vibrant verbs and personification. 
We were lucky enough to have some extra adult help too, who really enjoyed their time with us. 
This is Kiberick and some of Pendower class performing the poem 'On Bonfire Night'  by Holly Jones. We used the Ipad to record and improve our performance. It was quite tricky to make our voices match the meaning and atmosphere - but we are very happy with our results. 

Proud moment: Mrs Cartwright was very impressed when these two boys were so inspired by their morning's lesson that they spent their lunch break creating spear heads and a 'survival dagger.'
They explained that "Back in the Stone age they weren't concerned with fighting, it was more about surviving, so I could use these spear heads to kill animals for food and he could skin them with his dagger!"
"I shaped this one with another stone"
"This would have been made of stone in the old days, but I found a bit of rock and shaped this into a dagger like they would have done."
Building with clay for our Stone age and Iron age homes
Building our Stoneage cave - a great place to sit quietly with a book or a friend and have some quiet time.

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!
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.

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.
