World Book Day
A fabulous celebration of words! Outfits were also amazing with the effort parents, grandparents and children out in. The children were truly inspired by the book ‘Lost Words’ and produced some wonderful poetry and art work. Thank you for your support.
Two days on the trot out of uniform, but well worth it for scientist impressions! What a brilliant way to start Science/STeAM Week.
Today started off with an assembly from the Aquarium and children were excited by sharks! This week has a range of planned activities. It is unfortunate that the planned, Marine Biologist Day, for five of our Marine Champions, has been cancelled due to Coronavirus, but no doubt there will be other in-school activities that will be just as enjoyable and informative.
Throughout the week we are selling raffle tickets (50p each) for two prizes. (Slime for EYFS & KS1 and Connex for KS2, please see photos.) Tickets are available from Mrs Brooking all week and names will be drawn on Monday 16th March, during assembly. Good luck!
Please check the 'Our Learning Journey' section of Year group pages for more.

A couple of parents came forward to host their last week 29th March-3rd April 2020, if you are still willing and would like one or both to stay with you that week, please could you make contact with the school again. Thank you.
It is unfortunate that Year 3 pupils from Locmaria may now not be able visit us soon due to their government’s ruling & guidance on Coronavirus. This has also had implications for our Year 6 who were due to attend a residential in France, later in June. No decision is easy, in these times of uncertainty, but please rest assured that any decision we do take will be guided by the DfE, as this was, and will be in the best interests of all. Please see the latest guidance below.
This is your daily email to keep you updated on the government’s response to COVID-19 (coronavirus).
We recognise that students, parents, schools and colleges will be concerned about the possible impact of coronavirus on the 2020 summer exam series. Ofqual’s advice at this time is to continue to prepare for exams and other assessments as normal.
Ofqual continues to work closely with exam boards, other regulators and the Department for Education to plan for a range of scenarios, as the public would expect. Our overriding priorities are fairness to students this summer and keeping disruption to a minimum.
It is still many weeks until exams start and we will issue updated advice if necessary, giving schools and colleges as much notice as possible.
The latest updates from Ofqual can be found here:
