Aspiration Day 2023
We had a fantastic Aspiration Day in school on Friday! The children looked fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed researching into their future selves.
Thank you to Tregonning children for taking the photographs of all of the children and brilliantly using their computing skills to superimpose suitable backgrounds into the snapshots. They composed the photograph, added the backgrounds, printed the photographs and laminated them under supervision. All children in the school will come home this week with their photograph.
Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteers who made the day a huge success. Check out of Facebook page for lots more photos.
Trecncrom Class were set the task to create some packaging to protect a precious Egyptian artefact. They imagined that they had excavated their object and had to find a way to transport it down the river Nile. They looked at materials and used these to create a purposeful and functional design for their packaging. They then used their design to make their planned packaging. Rather than test one of the replica artefacts we have in school, children tested their packaging using hard boiled eggs! They then explored and evaluated their design against their made packaging and whether is was fit for purpose - did it protect the egg?
A lot of fun was had by all!
Our two key stage two classes joined forces this week to go to the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro to further their studies on Ancient Greece and Ancient Egypt.
The children had a very interactive day as you can see from the photos below!
