Learning Cornish, identifying local marine life, and making Cornish fairings were some of the highlights from this year’s Year 6 activity day. The day was Cornish-themed and involved learning lots about the wonderful place we live in.
The 90 children attending were split into 8 groups, named after local beaches, all of whom took part in 3 of the 8 activities on offer. It was a busy morning for the children with seaweed printing in art, Cornish holidays gone wrong in drama, and a lesson inspired by the future of space travel in Cornwall with Physics.
After a morning of making new friends and challenging themselves to try new things, the Year 6s had worked up an appetite. The catering department put on a delicious spread of Cornish-inspired foods featuring classic Cornish pasties, local sausages, and Cornish cupcakes.
The final activity of the day saw all the children come together for an afternoon of sport in a Pirates of Truro team game; working together in their groups the children tried to collect as much treasure as possible.
Muras (thank you in Cornish) to all the children for attending the event. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
