Week beginning Monday 9th July 2021

Two weeks to go.

After a busy few weeks, we have some how found ourselves only two weeks (10 school days) away from the Summer holidays. The children are keeping up their focus for learning well, readying themselves for sports day next Friday (16th July) and are very excited for our Beach trip on Tuesday (13th July).

Last Friday the children concluded their swimming sessions. They made such good progress over the two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The swimming instructors were all well impressed with the children's progress and attitude to learning. We are arranging certificates to acknowledge their progress and success, and hope to have these with the children as soon as possible. 

Wild Tribe First aid:
KS2 this week took part in a day of first aid training. The children learnt how to look after those in need and the various situations they could come across and have a solid knowledge of ACE (Airway, Breathing and Circulation). This day has been extremely value and if you have followed any European cup football, you will have noticed how a football player's life was most likely saved by some simple first aid. Well done KS2.

Beach day and Aquarium visit:

Tuesday 13th July is going to be a busy day with KS1 and KS2 visiting the beach for a day beach sports and activities. The weather is looking good but please be prepared for all weather with plenty to drink, sun cream, hats and (hopefully not needed) a coat. The day will be very sporty and active so please wear footwear and clothes suitable for lots of moving around. 

Reception and Nursery will be remaining at school to have an aquarium experience as Newquay aquarium visit our school before the children visit the aquarium the following week. 

Sports day:

Next week is sports day (Friday 16th July). We and the children are looking forward to this, and we hope you are too. Just a reminder that we aim to start at 1:15pm and 1 member from each family my attend to ensure we have safe numbers (social distancing and mask must be worn). As you arrive and while you are waiting, we may ask you to fill in short parent survey. If you could complete this, it would be really helpful.

Star of the week awards:
Emily S, Harry W
Head Teacher Awards: Thomas H, Ava M, Mason W

The sun looks like it may be on our side for the beach trip and sports day: we are all looking forward to it.

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.
