A massive thank you to all our parents, carers and friends of Newquay Primary Academy. We raised a massive £107.50 for Children In Need. The children all took part in the ‘Bearpee Challenge’, where they did an amazing job of seeing how many they could do.
This week Newquay Primary Academy pupils voted for a boy and a girl from their class to represent them in the Academy Council. They used a ballot box to keep their votes anonymous and this linked to both individual liberty and democracy that they have learnt about within our British Values lessons.
It is our pleasure to announce that Newquay Primary Academy’s council representatives will be…..
Tallulah and Rafael from Severn class
Henry and Freya from Tamar class
Ollie and Iona from Joshua class
We can’t wait to see the fantastic impact the Academy Council will have on academy life.
Yesterday Severn class had their first trip to the orchard. Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy and other artists who utilise nature – the pupils worked together to build beautiful natural sculptures and photograph things they found.
Joshua class have been inspired by the Gingerbread Man, with all their Discover and Do activities this week being linked to the story. Yesterday, the children were joined by Mr Ellis-Davis who mashed up the story with last week’s book about the Three Little Pigs.
Joshua class made boats out of tin foil and set their own gingerbread man off down the rapids. They then asked the question “crunchy or soggy?” Those children with crunchy biscuits were celebrated by their friends as it meant their boat let in no water!
The children then came up with ideas about what happened next to the Gingerbread Man.
Tamar class is collecting items to create a Christmas shoebox for one boy and one girl.
The children are working as a class to create these valuable boxes for children aged 5-9 years old, who will truly appreciate every item that they receive.
Tamar class is asking for donations, if you are able to do so.
The creation of these Shoeboxes are closely related to Tamar class’s RE and PSHE learning this half term, educating the children about the differences around the World and the emotions experienced from gifting.
The deadline for donations is 13th November, in order for the shoebox to reach the child before Christmas.
Some suggestions of items to donate can be found in the picture below.
Severn class were surprised today when they returned to their classroom and found it in a total mess! Luckily the classroom Worry Monster had seen what had happened and was able to give a brief description of the monster that had done it. The pupils then set about describing and drawing the monster to explain the destruction to Mr Hayes!
