Lowen had fun on her flower hunt and making perfume..... we collected them on our #stay@home rainbowsclub
Lowen and Merryn learning about how to look after flowers.
Kloe has watched some videos on the artist Lowry and some on pointillism, she chose to paint in the style of Lowry and this is her painting of her family and friends having a picnic.
Here are some lovely photos from Georgia, her mummy and little sister.
Hello Mrs Gardner,
Isla is really missing everybody! She has been busy planting seeds, making slime, baking and playing in the sunshine. We've been trying our best at the work set out but Isla is finding this a really strange time so we are taking it slowly!
Isla has really been enjoying playing on a new game on our Nintendo switch during her screen time . it's called animal crossing. Isla has always loved building things on the ipad or computer so this game is perfect for her.
Isla also had a lovely video call with katrina, Isla put filters over her face so was talking to Katrina looking like a cat and a piece of pizza at one stage!
Isla has had two visits from the tooth fairy she is excited to tell everyone that shes lost her two front teeth.
Hope everyone is keeping safe.
Kloe has had a Cornish pasty this week learnt some Cornish words, mapped out places she's been in Cornwall and chose to paint the nearly home tree's, which is on the Devon border but still a Cornish landmark.
Hi Miss Tonkin & Mrs Gardner,
Hope everybody are ok. The boys have been super busy with their work but they are both starting to miss their friends. Seb and Morley have been trying their hardest with their work every day and are really enjoying the themed work that's been set each week. They even help bake (and eat) some scones yesterday. Below are some photos of a few things the boys have been up too.
Stay safe everyone and hopefully we will see you all again soon.
Robbie, Josie, Seb, Morley and Seth.
Dear Mrs Gardner,
I just wanted to say how much we are enjoying the themed work set this week. As well as keeping us busy, we’ve been able to get some of our family and friends involved too - having a cream tea over FaceTime and Callum’s Granny playing the tune for Trelawny and recording it for us, so we can practise our singing. Thanks to Team Roche for coming up with these great ideas.
From Callum and Nicola
I hope you are all OK? I’ve been busy working and updating the website. I hope you have all watched the film that we recorded for you. I loved it! It was really nice to everyone from school.
Where has the sunshine gone? After so many weeks of beautiful blue skies and hot sunshine we are back to rain. I managed to walk the dog in between showers today! It was quite windy at Little Fistral, but I took a couple of photos to show you. I have also done some pebble painting and made a picture of seahorse with Finlay.
I only put the new education city online yesterday and was really impressed to see so many of you using it, well done everyone!
Don’t forget there is also daily arithmetic that I have set for you, 60 seconds read which is about Polar bears this week, practising your common exception words, reading and this week’s theme.
On that note, I’m going to miss not going to Obby Oss day this week in Padstow, if you get a chance have a look at a video of it online from last year. It’s so colourful and fun and this is one Cornish tradition that makes me feel proud to be a proper Cornish maid!
Please keep sending me photos and letters, I really love them and I will put them on the website for you.
Finlay has been doing his work from school and as a reward I’ve let him have Disney channel for a few weeks. He absolutely adores Marvel and is slowly making his way through the films in the evenings. He has also been watching the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and has been reading the new Tom gates book. He has also decided to learn how to play chess with his dad (I have no idea! ) and he is picking it up really well. I have taken a picture to show you.
I hope you are all staying safe!
Keep watching the website for updates.
Love and best wishes,
Paige getting into the swing of the Cornish theme this week, pics attached,
She is really enjoying Education City and completing Mrs Gardners tasks.
Also Numbots on your website are there different logins?? If so could you send over?,
Many thanks for all your hard work through these strange times, stay well stay safe,
Mr Mark Hooley
Dear Mrs Gardner and Miss Searle,
Lexton & Leyton were super busy last week and really enjoyed the theme.
Lexton has been practising spelling and writing his common exception words and Leyton has been practising his letter and number formation!
They’ve been having fun making junk models out of our recycling and even more fun building a bug house!
They have both been going on to do the daily arithmetic and also accessing education city daily, we read every day accessing books on Oxford owl!
Lexton has also been accessing Numbots and he is trying to get enough coins to buy a new body for his robot ☺️
We’ve also been doing a bit of baking and the boys mixed red and blue food colouring to make purple icing!
Kloe had fun doing her earth day projects this week, designing her love your planet T-shirt, planting tomato seeds and she's enjoyed making her bug hotel with help from her dad the most.
Here is Ruby with her t-shirt for recycling, Earth day poem and bug garden with a ladybird.
She has been growing, beetroot’s, parsley and chilli peppers.
Hi Year 1 and families,
Well we are into another week of home learning. I'm busy at home updating the website with people's pictures, letters and work. Thank you to everyone sending things to us, we love seeing them all. Please take a look at this weeks activities and if you get a chance have a go at the daily arithmetic. Also I'm just about to update education city with some new tasks. Well done all those people who are accessing Education City.
I know how challenging learning from home can be, Finlay absolutely hates me trying to teach him anything and I'm trying really hard to keep to his school's timetable of work! It's easier for me to be back at school with you lovely lot. So for all of my parents, I feel your pain right now. BUT, it's so important to keep trying to do some home learning, no matter how small. Please keep sending us letters, photos and work. We may not all be at school, but we are trying to stay connected as much as possible. We are so very lucky that we have such a community based school, with such lovely staff, children, parents and governors. I'm missing my second home a lot, (after 20 years at one school I think I can call it my second home) so you all stay safe, keep in touch and keep trying to do little bits of learning when you can.
Missing you all so very much,
Mrs Gardner xxx
Here are some pics of George and Maisie making Easter cakes, we're keeping busy!
Take good care, Amy

Keep sending in pictures and messages and any I receive, I will upload to website.
Stay home and stay safe!
Dear Mrs Gardner
Taylor has had a fantastic 1st week at school and is definitely keeping us on our toes.
Taylor has been writing, reading and role play along with many other things.
Both Taylor and Ava had fun on a video call this week.. you would think it was longer than a week they had been apart.
Taylor’s plant is very small compared to Liams as his plants are doing really well.
Well goodbye for now..
Pinch punch, first day of the month.
Morning year 1. Hope you are all okay and being good at home for your parents. I've been to deliver a package of cakes, biscuits, puzzle books and presents for my uncle and aunt, who are both in their 80's today. I waved to them through the window. Well done to everyone who is accessing education city. See below to see your progress. Don't forget PE with Joe Wicks in the mornings and also there is new phonics on RWI website. Keep busy, keep smiling! Stay safe.
Hi Year 1. What beautiful weather we are having. I've been getting out in the garden and have been looking after your plants as well as planting some peas for myself to grow. I have set up new education city activities for you today. Well done to those children who have been accessing the activities. Take a look below to see how well they have been doing. If any of you fancy writing me a letter, draw me a picture, take a photo of yourself, you can take a picture of them and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want me to put them on the website, just let me know. I look forward to hearing from some of you. I'm missing you like crazy, stay safe you lovely lot.
Love Mrs Gardner
Good morning year 1. Day 5 in the Gardner household is going well! Finlay and I have managed to tidy both the gardens, so we both have space for outdoor exercise. He is still working through his home learning and I've been updating the website with photos and messages from other children. I have also been marking your last unaided writing and I have been blown away with your progress. Well done everyone. Well done to Liam, Callum and Morley for accessing Education city. Hope you are enjoying it. You can also watch phonics lessons on the RWI website.
I'm missing you all a lot.
Love Mrs Gardner
Well done Morley, I see you have had a go at one of the Education city games.
I've added some pictures of your bean plants that I have put in my greenhouse at home they are loving the heat and are really beginning flourish. Don't worry i will look after them.
Good morning year 1!
I hope you are all ok, I'm currently watching Finlay do Joe Wicks PE workout.
Then we are starting our home schooling!
I have found this online - it's our phonics lessons from the lady who produces RWI (read, write, Inc).
Please try and watch if you can, it will help you to continue your reading practise from home.
Take care you lovely lot.
Welcome to Year 1
