Our community garden is really starting to take shape. We have been really lucky to have lots of donations of time, plants and compost from lots of people. This was made possible because Mrs Nancekivell on behalf of the PTA applied to the East Langford Solar Farm Community Grant to request funds to improve our gardening facilities. Watch this space to see what we have been growing. Pictured below are Mrs Nanckivell and Miss Shepherd with Summerleaze class saying a big thank you to the solar farm!
Members of the Inner Wheel Club of Bude popped into school on Monday to present the school with a 'peace rose.' The rose is descended from a variety which was smuggled out of France to safety during the German invasion of 1940 and has been presented to local schools to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the armistice of 1918.
Pictured below are some of our house captains receiving the peace rose.
Year 5 and 6 Residential to Beam House 11th - 13th June 2018
Twenty-eight children from Crooklets and Summerleaze classes visited the PGL Centre at Beam House near Torrington. Once there they took part in several exciting activities. They also stayed away from home, some of them for the first time. Pictures from the visit can be viewed below.
Our Christmas play, 'The Stories of Christmas,' was held at Penstowe on Wednesday 6th December. The play centered around a group of children who had a nightmare teacher, Miss Mean. These children were rescued by a kind Christmas fairy, Twinkle. Together with Twinkle, the children battled the nasty fairy Sprout, who was intent on ruining popular stories and films. The children managed to defeat Sprout and the visit the best Christmas story of them all, the nativity.
Children from Years Five and Six took on the acting parts in the play but every child in the school had time on stage performing songs and dances.
All the children in the school had a chance to work with Daya, who led Hinduism workshops in the school. The children learnt about the Hindu religion, its traditions and ways in which Hindus worship.
They also had a chance to try on traditional clothes and make and eat some traditional food.

School Picnic - Tuesday 27th June 2017
We held out annual school picnic on 27th June. We had a fantastic amount of parents and relatives at the school and the sun shone for us! Debbie, our chef, produced a delicious picnic menu and after we had eaten our lunch, we had plenty of time to enjoy games on the field.
We also had lots of entries in the PTA cake baking competition. Winning the competition was Miss Greenwood with Mrs Nancekivell in second place and Mrs Gliddon in third. All cake entries were then sold off to raise money for PTA funds.
Please look through the slideshow below to see pictures from our school picnic.
