Why we have chosen this objective:
To ensure children’s curriculum experience is strategically broadened and diversity regularly celebrated (or normalised). So that all children see themselves/their heritage reflected positively and to confirm our curriculum’s unconscious bias is challenged.
To achieve this objective, we plan to:
Review Reading Spine across the school to ensure diversity is reflected positively and key people of study throughout topic learning reflects diversity.
Highlight and mark national events such as Black History Month, LGBT history month, religious celebrations, Windrush.
Support and become part of Black Voices Cornwall to develop the curriculum across Cornwall.
Maintain teaching of Children’s Rights as detailed in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
PSHE curriculum to be continually reviewed and ensure all are reflected in our teaching.
We will update below throughout the year with celebrations of our achievements towards this.
As you know your children were invited to wear green. The money your child brought in was to help Shelterbox. We had stalls and games like books, crafts and toys. It was very busy and by the end there was not a lot left at all. Trencrom class hosted this event on Wednesday 22nd of February 2023. The first class to come was Godolphin. And then Year 6 and Reception. The games outside were Penalty Shoot-out, Skittles and Hook a Duck. Me, Ia and Orla ran the craft stall. I set up and totally ran the book stall. By Emily C
At Penponds School we raised lots and lots of money for Shelterbox. Trencrom class designed a game stall for two people. This happened on Wednesday 22nd February 2023. There was a Can Toss by me and Logan, Hook A Duck by Orrin and Bert and a Penalty Shoot out by Caleb, Joel and Elffin outside and some more stalls inside. By Keegan
On fund raising day it was fun because you can set up stalls and buy stuff for 20p-50p. People can play your games but if you wanted to buy something a person had to stay at the stall. The other classes came to all stalls after lunch. The money was for Shelterbox. Shelterbox is a charity. So we set up the stalls so we could raise money for Shelterbox. Shelterbox is like if your house got destroyed by natural disaster they will give you a shelter box of shelter kit but they need money to buy the stuff that’s why we are going to give money to Shelterbox.

On the 22nd of February 2023 Trencrom Class had a fund-raising day to raise money for Shelterbox, a company that send boxes to places that a disaster has destroyed their homes. These boxes provided everything they need to survive with a home. We had craft, book and toys stalls and lots and lots of games! Our goal was to make £160 (enough money to buy two shelter boxes) but everyone thinks we earned more! People sold their old stuff in order to recycle. Some people even made stuff or set up activities! We had Year 6, Year 1 and 2 and Reception in to do our activities and it was very busy! Every child in Penponds School was invited to wear green and bring in £1. We also had a cake sale after school in the bike shed. We had a Can Toss, Hook a Duck and loads of other games but most people were just interested in the lollypops! By Ia
