Welcome to Peswara!


Well done Year 6! You have all been complete super stars this well and should be very proud of yourselves!


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.

Teyr and Peswara classes are full steam ahead with practice for their production: 'The Pied Piper of Pendeen', tickets for which will be on sale from Teyr class, before and after school, from Monday 2nd July.


The performances will be on Tuesday 17th July: an afternoon performance at 1:30pm and an evening performance at 6:30pm.


We've also been learning La Frowda songs - the lyrics and music can be found at: should your lovelies look bored at any point in the next couple of weeks!



Their homework this week is to practice their lines for the play and even where they don't have a line, they'll need to know which scenes they're in as rats, birds and citizens - everyone has a part to play in this extravaganza!


Thanks again for sending in fabulous young minds who astound me in new ways every single day!

Another superb start to the week in Peswara after a gorgeous weekend, well done! This week we are looking at personification in poetry and beginning to write our own poems linked to London in 1666! So far, we've given different objects in the class humanistic characteristics. One brilliant example being 'blinking blinds'!

A brilliant week in Peswara and a massive well done to Year 6 for smashing their SATs this week! A huge thank you to Year 5 for coping with the disruption of moving classes all week and thank you to Teyr class for being so welcoming.


News from the class- 8th May 2018

Welcome back after a sunny bank holiday weekend! It made me smile today, listening to Peswara tell tales of barbeques, beaches and kayaking over the weekend! Great work guys! This week we are looking at poetry, thinking about emotions, feelings and different moods. We will be linking feelings and thoughts to different scenarios- using partners and photos to create scenes- to produce oral free verse poems. 


Maths this week is all about converting different units of measure- both imperial and metric. We will be looking at different ways to estimate, compare and contrast using real life objects to help. 




News from the class- 30th April 2018


Our topic this term is 'London'.

We've had an incredibly busy week in Peswara! So far, the children have researched 'The Great Plague' and have begun to produce a non-chronological report, detailing specific events of their own choice. It fills me with pride, as class teacher, to see the fantastic progress in writing that is being made! Well done, Peswara!


Maths this week has been all about angles, triangles and measuring! We have loved it! During the week, we have developed our measuring skills when using a protractor. It has been a joy to be part of such an exciting week of practical maths lessons!


On Thursday afternoon we were blessed with sunshine. We played an extremely tense game of rounders on the field- Mr Newsome was very competitive!


Our class novel is called 'Raven Boy', set in London during the time of the Great Plague. At the minute, a young boy - called Nick Truelove- is plotting to kill the King!


Spring Term 2


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.
