Class 1 wedding! 18.03.19

A real life Edwardian wedding took place in St. Nunn's church today!  Class one have been learning about life in the past and their class text inspired this wonderful experience.

The story of Minnie and Ginger encouraged the children to re-enact the wedding, with the help of Reverend Marilyn. The children prepared the wedding reception and invited friends and family to attend.

They thoroughly enjoyed dressing up and playing each of the characters from the story. There was a very proud best man and a real Edwardian style wedding cake.

They couldn't believe they were getting to eat real flowers! We have some wonderful wedding photos to share.

The children helped to get all the food ready for the wedding reception.

The cake was cut and everyone enjoyed a piece.

The table was prepared.

The wedding party posed for photographs.

We’re going on a Bunny Hunt!!!!

Volunteers working on the Looe Live Community Zone are raising funds for a new Looe Live Community Chest to help support local groups, organisations and events that improve community life and good causes in Looe. Funds raised would be ring fenced to support the future of the Community Zone as part of the Looe Live Festival, but also provide a fund to support other community events and activities throughout the year, that will enhance the town socially, environmentally and culturally.

Not sure what to do with the children over the Easter holidays??? Let them join in the fun of trying to find the little gold bunnies that have been hidden around Looe in participating shop windows.

There are 20 gold bunnies to find, 5 in shop windows in West Looe, and 15 in East Looe. Each participating business will also have a poster in their window.

Entry forms are on sale at the Looe Tourist Information Centre from April 1st from 10.00 – 15.00 Mon - Fri at £1.00 per sheet. Once the sheet is completed, please return to the TIC with a contact name and phone number on the reverse.

Prizes for three lucky winners returning their correct forms by Friday 19th April. The winner will be announced on Easter Sunday on East Looe Seafront following the Beach Easter Egg Hunt.

We hope you will enjoy the hunt and appreciate your support.

There will be a gold bunny on display in the Tourist Information Centre so that the children will know what they look like!! GOOD LUCK!!!

Excellence, determination, creativity, enthusiasm, responsibility and curiosity. 

On Friday 1st March we sent our house ambassadors to the Bridge Schools values conference. Children and adults from all 14 of Bridge Schools attended the event at the beautiful St. Wenn church to talk about and take part in activities linked to the 6 main values of the Trust.  

The ambassadors produced a powerpoint about our values and learning at Pelynt Primary Academy, to share with the other schools. 

By the end of the day, when all 6 values had been explored, there was a common conclusion that these values are important to us all, now and in our future lives. The ambassadors will share what they learnt in assembly and we will then work together as a whole school to explore what these values mean to everyone at Pelynt Primary Academy. 

 


Class 4 boat project

Class 4 having been linking their Science and History learning to produce these wonderful boats.

After researching boats of the past they worked collaboratively to design and build their own. The next step was to make predictions about the amount of cargo they could hold.

In addition to this they investigated and tested a variety of pulley systems and basic mechanisms. I loved the fact that they used natural resources to create these masterpieces.

Ask your child to show you which boat they created and how successful it was when it came to floating and carrying cargo.
