Week beginning 1st November 2021

Amazing Science this week

The children have been working brilliantly as always, and in particularly in Science. In KS1 the children have been sorting materials. It was great to see the children talk about the properties of different objects and materials; then use the iPads (with the app 'Padlet') to send their sorting discussions to their teacher.

Key Stage 2 have been conducting scientific enquiries too linked to the water cycle and have now begun to look at the oxidization process to see what conditions effect metals rusting most. It is only a few days in but already the results are starting to take shape. 

Halloween Disco:
Thank you to the PTA and all parents who supported the Halloween Disco. The children had a blast and it was so nice to see yet another normality return for them. Some very spooky costumes!

Children in Need:
Children in Need is on Friday 19th November. The school council has decided that they would like everybody to come dressed in as many spots as they can: there will be a prize for the most spots for all classes. The school council ask that a donation of £1 be brought in for the charity. They will also be making biscuits to be sold for 50p each. All money will go to Children in Need.

Anti-Bullying Week:
The week beginning 15th November is Anti-bullying week. We are committed to ensuring children understand the issue, form healthy-relationships and that they can make sure our school is a place where bullying is not tolerated. On Monday 15th November, children can wear non-school uniform and odd socks as we dedicate the day to Anti-bullying. For the remainder of the week, we would like all children to wear odd socks in recognition of everybody being different and unique. Odd socks is the theme of the week. 

A big well done to Jack S who was competing in 'Enduro-motocross' and collected a trophy for his endeavors.

Blisland School was built in 1880 and serves the village of Blisland and surrounding countryside area. Blisland School is located just outside the beautiful village of Blisland in a hamlet, named Waterloo, on the very edge of Bodmin Moor.

The school is situated only a mile from the A30 and is five miles from the nearest town of Bodmin, bordered to the north by St Breward parish; to the west by St Mabyn and Helland parishes; to the south by Cardinham, Warleggan and St Neot parishes and to the northeast by Altarnun parish. Matt Avery, Head of School.

Blisland School has a nursery which caters for children from the start of the term of their third birthday. There is one infant class and one junior class, all staffed by caring outstanding practitioners. We have three playgrounds and a field. We regularly visit Forest School with the children and believe that outdoor learning is key to children's wider development. All children have access to laptops and ipads.

In December 2011, Ofsted inspected Blisland School and recognised the school as Outstanding. The Ofsted inspection team said, "The school is a happy place. Through the strong family atmosphere which permeates the school, pupils learn to take very good care of each other. As a result of excellent teaching throughout the school, pupils achieve very well and attain significantly above average by the end of Year 6".

Blisland School is a very special place offering a unique, quality education.

Matt Avery, Head of School.
