Weekly News 14th - 18th May
What a topsy turvy week. Due to the SATs we have been joined by the year 3 children. This was great fun, Monday we spent time outside acting out the Elves and the Shoemaker with year 3 help. Math has been very tasty, as we shared equally into quarters using smarties. The best bit, we ate the lot! We have continued to work on the Elves story by sequencing, and now writing our very own versions. We have very nearly finished making our shoes, some are on display, please pop in and have a look. We continue to practice for sports day, and keep our fingers crossed for good weather next week. Sad news, our nesting doves have lost their nest. We only hope they have made a new one in a safer place.
Weekly News 8th May -11th May
Although a 4 day week this has not stopped us from being very busy. We were happy to see that the nesting doves are still with us. Excitement is growing as we think we may soon have eggs, as the mummy dove has not moved off her nest all week. Even the builders are being careful on the scaffold. Watch this space as Kynsa children follow the life of the nesting doves.
We have started to make our own felt shoes this week, as soon as we have completed them, they will be on display throughout the school. Also look out for our peg dolls they are popping up on walls all over the school.
Math has seen us learning all about halving, and what this looks like. Year 1 have started their leaflets, which will be judged by the staff later next week. Reception continue to amaze us all by their independent math and writing skills.
Weekly News 30th April - 5th May
Kynsa children this week have been learning to play different board games linked to our topic toys. We have learnt to play noughts and crosses, this made for some good competition between adults and children.
We are very excited, but also concerned as two doves have started to make their nest in between two of the scaffolding poles. We hope they stay safe, and we will watch to see if they have any babies.
Reception children amazed us this week with their independent writing, while the year 1 children have started making a leaflet, which only in the draft stages looks fantastic.
Enjoy the long weekend and see you on Tuesday.

What an amazing week. We are very proud of Kynsa and their dance performance on Wednesday at the Minack. The weather held off and we remembered all the moves.
We helped Winston bear find the right material to keep him dry on his holidays. Thursday we started making our peg dolls. Maths has been all about arrays, these are tricky and we have shown great understanding of rows and columns.
Weekly News, 16th - 20th April
What a busy week back. We have started our new topic on toys, and are looking forward to all the lovely things we have planned. Our science this half term is all about the weather. The new Pendeen school weather station has been working well this week. We are hoping to see how sunny Pendeen really is.
Maths has been all about counting in tens and looking at equal groups. Lauren has been in, putting us through our paces before we perform at the Minack next week. Please can PE kit be in school all the time, as we are having dance workshops over the next few days.
Weekly News, 19th-23rd March
Another busy week, and we continue to look at information texts, finishing with our very own fruit kebabs for snack. There were some very colourful and tasty ones. We have been measuring and weighing in math, looking to see who was the tallest and how heavy objects were.
We are very excited about our Eden trip next week, and have started looking at what Eden is, and what we will be learning about.
Weekly News, 12th-16th March
What a very busy week we have had in Kynsa. We started our week looking at instructions and what we use them for. We have written some instructions for making a jam and sandwich, with the best bit, making and eating some.
We have been lucky enough to have a dance workshop this Friday afternoon ready for a performance later next term at the Minack. Hopefully we will remember all the moves.
