Some of the Year 5 children last week began their Bikeability cycle training. This week the children braved the weather to venture out onto the roads but were eventually beaten by the horrendous weather which later in the day turned to snow and forced the school to close early.
There will be two further dates for these children to hone their skills - 4th/5th March.
The Year 5 children also continued with their series of tag-rugby lessons this week led by coaches from the Cornish Pirates whilst some of the class practised their football skills for the SPCMAT Football Tournament on Monday afternoon with Mrs. Ellis who has just re-accredited as an FA Coach.
The class have made a great effort with their designs for Mayan masks and have produced some colourful Islamic prayer mats as part of their RE work too.
In their geography work this week the children have identified the modern-day countries in Mesoamerica where the Mayans once built their settlements and will be compari g and contrasting the physical geography of this part of the world with the UK next week.
The children will also have some lessons dedicated to e-safety for Safer Internet Day on Tuesday and for 'Time to Talk' day on Thursday (as part of Children's Mental Health Week).
