Meadow Song, Sea-side visit and SATs

This week has been a very busy week and seems to have vanished in a blink. The children have been working hard and we have seen some lovely poetry work, investigations in science - planting flowers for a meadow and some wonderful watercolour paintings.

Meadow Song Project:
Both classes are currently undertaking a learning project around meadows: 'How important for the environment they are and what we can do to help'. The children are creating some amazing pieces of art, poems, scientific investigations and song performances all about meadows. We would like to present their work to you parents after half term on the morning of Friday 17th June, just after drop-off at around 9.30am if you can hang around. 

Looe Lifeboat station:
Our Receptions and Nursery were lucky enough to go on a visit to Looe lifeboat station. They had some fantastic weather for their visit and had a fabulous time looking around the lifeboat station: seeing the rescue boats, equipment and understanding how they do their job. 

Y6 End of KS2 Assessments (AKA SATs):
Our Year 6 children this week were involved in end of key stage assessments (SATs). They are the first group for 3-years to do so and did a sterling job. They showed good perseverance, empathy with one-another and did us all proud. They certainly earned their end of week treat to the 'Snail's Pace' Café. A big thank you to our PTA for funding their treat and to the Café for making a big fuss of them and giving the children a delicious ice cream for their walk home on the Camel Trail. 

Blisland Summer Fair:
Blisland will be holding a summer fair (Saturday 25th August) this year after putting it on hold due to Covid-19. The school will aim to run 3 stalls at the fair (Mostly over the morning); if you and or your children can help, that would be great (Please let us know if you can). Also, if you or if you know of anybody who would like to have your own stall at the fair, please let school know so we can put you in contact with the organisers.

Fowey Festival:
On Saturday 14th May, children from our school who finished 1st and second in the Fowey Festival writing competition will go to receive their awards. We are really proud of them and look forward to hearing all about the prizes and day. Furthermore, the festival organisers have kindly opened their festival invitation to our whole school, allowing children and a parent free entry (Ticket normally £12). Details on how to get free entry will be emailed to you.

Stars of the week: Lerryn, Byron, Erin, Emily and Brianna
Head Teacher awards: Alex H-P, Ottillie S, Zenna P, Lola W, Amy I and Emily S

Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather.

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.
