Welcome to Peswara!


Well done to everyone in Peswara for completing some stunning examples of newspaper reports for your homework!


*Year 6 SATs Booster Club Wednesday 3:15-4:15*

Peswara class is a Year 5 and 6 class currently taught by Mr Newsome whilst Mr Argall is on compassionate leave. 

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Squires, who teaches the class Art and French on a Tuesday afternoon. 


Our PE day is a Thursday afternoon, this term we are learning how to play Football. We recommend you bring in your kit on a Monday and take it home on a Friday just in case our PE session is moved for any reason (such as weather). 


Every Friday there will be a new piece of homework set based upon our learning from the week.  


On Monday a new set of spellings will be given to the class - there is a spelling test every Friday. 


Class news

This term our Topic is Engineering, Inventors and Inventions.


After reading about 'The Dragonfly' crashing in our class novel, we have written newspaper articles about the crash using eye-witness accounts and our journalistic brains.


In Maths this week, we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages noticing and making links between them. Will we also be looking at algebra!


We will be making pinhole cameras in science this week so please remember to bring in a tube!




The Pearl of Africa choir

The Pearl of Africa choir 1
Year 5 had the amazing opportunity to see the Pearl of Africa choir at Cape Cornwall school. It was day of singing and dancing to brilliant music. "It was really good and the dancing was fantastic. They were amazing for 10 to 18 years old." - Amelia Humphries.

We were lucky enough to be able to visit Pendeen Pottery, just across the road from the school. We saw how clay pots and mugs were made and we used the trip as inspiration for our own clay tiles - thank you John at Pendeen Pottery for the fantastic visit.
