E-safety

Fal class have been learning about e-safety.
The children now know what to do if a pop-up appears on their screen.

Concentrating Crocodile

Fal class have been learning about the importance of concentration.
We have introduced ‘Concentrating Crocodile’ stickers when this learning power is demonstrated in the classroom.

We practised our concentrating skills when having egg and spoon races.

Friendships

Over the past few weeks, in PSHE, Fal Class have been learning about Friendships. We looked at what makes a good friend and how friends can make us feel. Due to lockdown, many of us have sadly not seen our friends for many weeks and we are missing them greatly. We therefore decided to make our friends a card and post them at the postbox.

We have learned about kindness and made ‘kindness jars’ to encourage random acts of kindness. We thought about how this made us and others feel.

We have discovered the important learning power ‘perseverance’. In order to remind us to always keep trying and not give up we made collage ‘Persevering Parrots’ which we could put up on the wall at home. 

Finally we thought about the importance of saying sorry and forgiveness.

Virtual Hubbub Festival 2020

Kenwyn and Helford class bubbles were invited to take part in this years online festival along with a total of 6000 students across Cornwall on Tuesday June 23rd.  A very different experience from the previous  Festivals at Heartlands!
The three workshops were Beatboxing, making funny sounds, brilliant noises and cool music, using just your mouth and a mic, Body Percussion incorporating music and dance and Mindfulness using music to relax and be calm to help support learning.

Sadly there were a few technical issues but the children in Kenwyn loved the Body Percussion which was led by Ollie, the founder and director of Beat Goes On. Angela Renshaw opened the festival on behalf of the Cornwall Music Education Hub who organised the event.

Songfest 2020

How lucky were Constantine Y6 songfest children to sing at the packed Princess Pavilion in Falmouth on March 12th, they sang their solo piece ‘Building’ in the first half and were brilliant! This was the first time Constantine Primary had sung a song on their own in a songfest concert and Mrs Micklem was so proud of them all. First having arrived there was a sound check, followed by a rehearsal with the brilliant Angela Renshaw. After a play outside and tea, back to the concert singing eight songs, with the massed choir, for the Heart and Soul, this year’s theme. A huge thank you to everyone involved. Another fabulous Songfest!

 

 

Wind in the Willows featuring the Penryn Partnership!

 

What another amazing collaboration of 8 Primary schools to produce a musical production. Wind in the Willows showcased the multi talented pupils through music, dance and drama. Huge thanks to all the staff involved who inspired the children with their enthusiasm and passion.

Ukulele stand

Wow! We are very fortunate to have such talented parents. Mr Ruberry built us this bespoke ukulele stand to ensure our ukes are looked after and stay in tune. We are so impressed with it and accessing our instruments is much easier now also.
