Podcast:

This week we have begun the Between the bell podcast. We had an interview with the orangutan aid carers, who have a rescue center in Indonesia. They are called Nigel and Sarah. They explained to each class about the conflict between orangutans and humans. We gave them an interview with the crew and they answered our questions such as what conditions they came in, or how long they have been orangutan doctors/nurses. They explained the conflict between humans and animals and how it was affecting the rainforests. Nigel, had his finger bitten off by a young male orangutan which was an interesting story told to each class. We want a special thanks to Nigel and Sarah and you can visit the website here :)

Tag Rugby:

Yesterday, class three went to the tag rugby competition between eight other schools. It was a set of different rugby themed activities and then a tournament in the afternoon. There were schools there such as Tregadillett, St Catherines and our close school Aulternun. It was a close match and everyone mostly enjoyed themselves.


There were no major injuries through each school, and thankfully our players remained unaffected. Egloskerry came fourth out of six schools and I think we did amazing considering most had experience with tag rugby and had been practising for a few weeks at least. Before the tournament a ruby Launceston college teacher came to explain how to play against other teams. It was a really fun day and was an amazing experience and it was very nice to go back and do it again after not being able to play the year before due to covid.



Half Term:

We have the end of this week and next week before half term! After half term we shall be going to look into Happy Feet our Christmas Play more. The parts will be given out for the auditions so the lines can be practised and before the first practise. Good luck to everyone auditioning, and we are excited to see what the Christmas play turns out like on the performance night.


Book Fair:

We have been having a book fair on this week, we have been able to look at some of the books and see which ones we have been interested in and after school some pupils have gone with there parents/careers to buy some. We have been using the online book fair app to purchase which has been a great success.

This was another year of harvest festivals. Thankfully because covid restrictions have been lifted, we were able to have one this year. This would be the last time year sixes would be singing conkers (thankfully for some pupils).

Over the course of Friday and next week there will be auditions for happy feet, our christmas play. This will be the last christmas play for year sixes in primary school. Further into the production children will be given costume information for their part.


Halloween Disco

On Friday next week the Halloween Disco shall be on for each class. Each Key Stage will have a different time, being decided by members of staff. Your child can feel free to dress up in a halloween themed costume or a casual disco outfit.



The Podcast

Soon there will be a school podcast, we will be doing it on school life and any events throughout the year. The people you will hear will be Thomas, Robin, Barney, Owen and Isabelle. Listen out for it and you can hear us talk about our views on our school week.



London Trip

Mrs Kerr and other teachers have planned an amazing trip to London in March. If you have further questions about the trip and are unsure about whether you want your child to go or not ask Mr Chorlton or other staff members attending to the trip. Other payment details in a letter handed out to class 3. ‘I am very excited and it will be an adventure’ said Hayley.


Some people are nervous about the trip, because it is a big step from a night over at Bachelors hall. Brandon thinks it will be really fun as long as he isn’t sick on the bus like Alfie during a previous trip
