Golden Eagle had a fantastic time at Great Potheridge. Well done to everyone for getting stuck in to all the activities and for carrying on when some of you were really scared. Next week we will be working on our assembly for parents and the rest of the school which we will present on Thursday 9th October.
Below is a sneak preview of some of the pictures we will be showing during the assembly. A big thank you to Andy for taking these pictures of us jumping into the rock pool on the beach at Hartland. They are a great reminder of the fun we had – although it can’t show how cold the water was :)

It is almost the end of the first week back and every one is very tired but happy.
This week we have been focusing on working in a team and getting to know each other. As well as doing other subjects including literacy, maths, art and PSHE. Here’s to the next 38 weeks :grin:

This week we did a line drawing art lesson. This lesson taught us how to make block letters and to think a bit outside the box.
All the letters in our first names the letters were piled high (repeating letters was encouraged!), we then filled in the spaces with patterns.
Once the patterns were filled in we used felt tips to colour in the letters.
See if you can guess who did each one by looking at the letters in the name:

It was our first day back in school today. One of our first tasks was to rescue Fred.
Fred has been spending his summer sailing along the coast of Cornwall. But he’s not too bright (after all he is only a worm). He’s never learned to swim and he never wears a life jacket.The worst has happened! His boat has capsized and he’s stuck.
Fortunately, his life belt is in the boat, but unfortunately he does not know how to reach it without falling off and drowning.
We had to work out how our group could save Fred using only 4 paper clips.
The rules were that we were not allowed to touch Fred, the boat, or the life belt directly with our hands.
Congratulations to England who have won the Women’s Rugby World Cup for the first time in 20 years. A special well done because England had lost in the previous three finals – 2002, 2006, 2010. They have shown real perseverance :)
It is the end of term…
Thank you for all the presents and cards I received. Thank you for everyone’s hard work this year. Good luck to the Year 6s – please come back and see us soon. Year 5s have a good rest because you have lots of fun activities (and hard work) to look forward to next year.
Time to say our goodbyes… :cry:
