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.

Pancake fun at Kids’ Club

pancake movie

On Monday, children at Kids’ Club made some pancakes. It got a little messy with a lot of sticky fingers, but all the children (and adults) really enjoyed themselves.

 

 

Truro cathedral staff visit Lerryn and Helford class

In July Lerrryn and Helford class enjoyed a visit from the outreach team from Truro cathedral. It would have been great to go to the cathedral but transport costs are always  prohibitive. However it was a great afternoon learning what happens in the cathedral, singing with Philip a choral scholar, dressing up and doing craft activities with Sarah.

Kids’ club staff change

After 5 years of continuos dedication at Kids’ club, Liz Allen has  sadly left to take up a permanent post at Helston Day Nursery.  The children gave her some presents and a card. We wish her well in her new role. She will be greatly missed. Luckily Miss Smitheram has joined the great Kids’ club team and the children are delighted!

Constantine Kids’ Club

Kids’ club at Constantine offers wrap around care for children aged between 4 and 13 years old in a safe environment and with enthusiastic caring staff. The breakfast club runs from 8am to school 8.55am and the afternoon session runs from 3.15pm until 6pm. Kids’ club opens everyday in the school term. There is a charge for the club and bills are sent out monthly. Children need to be booked in at the school office so that there is adequate staffing.

The children love coming to Kids’ club where our motto is ‘friendship and fun’. After school children have a snack and drink and then the children choose what they would like to do. We try to spend some time outside enjoying the fresh air, play games, climb on the apparatus or go in the playground and ride the didicars. After being outside we enjoy the facilities in the purpose built pre-school building and  sometimes we go into school and use the computer suite. Occasionally we watch appropiate DVDs or use the club’s playstation. Children can do their homework at the club and children who do not attend Constantine school are welcome too. Social interaction is one of the benefits of Kids’ club as the children all enjoy playing games together, whatever their ages. If you would like more information please come and talk to me, Rozelle Micklem at school, ask at the school office or ask for Ruth Davies at the pre-school.
