Monday’s Learning

What a fantastic jampacked day of learning…

Joshua Class: boats, ships and pirates

Joshua class have been super busy continuing their pirate themed learning, they are also getting ready to meet a very special person on Friday. Sarah Outen MBE was the first and youngest woman to row the Atlantic Ocean solo.

In November 2015, Sarah Outen completed her London2London:Via the World expedition: a mammoth attempt to row, cycle and kayak 25, 000 miles around the Northern Hemisphere. The journey took 4.5 years and was all the richer for not turning out exactly as planned.

Joshua class have written some thoughtful questions to ask Sarah. They also labelled pirate ships, made parrots, filled treasure chests and then programmed beebots to find their treasure. The children also made sail boats and counted out the real treasure we found at Pirate School on Friday.

Tamar Class: Geography

Tamar class had a visit from Mr Ellis-Davies who delivered their Geography lesson.

The children identified key human and physical features on a map of Newquay, learnt about the 11 local beaches in the town, discussed beach safety and reminded ourselves about the important role the RNLI play on our beaches.
