The SWAN...changes 


Be determined...There's an alien in your book! 


Welcome to the head's Blog

We are sure that like us, you have lots of questions following the Prime Minister's announcement last night. At the moment, for us in school, there is no change to the guidance, so we will be continuing to operate as we have over the last few weeks. We will continue to provide essential child care for key worker families as well as vulnerable children. The message remains that it is safer to stay at home. We appreciate this is a confusing time. Once we have received further information and reviewed the guidance on how to manage a safe, phased return we will of course keep you informed. Please stay safe and take care.


Be determined this VE day! 

Thinking of you all and hope you are well. Keep sending your Happy videos - they are looking great!
'When you go home, tell them of us and say,
For your tomorrow, we gave our today.'


Be determined...and the Happy Challenge! 

We are all missing school as we know it. Hold tight and as soon as there are any changes to the current arrangements at school we will be in touch. I am looking forward to seeing how many of you will get involved with our Happy Challenge! Stay safe and well.

* Captain Tom Moore has actually raised over £31,000,000! Incredible achievement!


Be determined...on World Earth Day! 

I hope you are well on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. See www.earthday.org/earth-day-2020 for some Earth friendly ideas. 


Water Safety with the RNLI 

Today we would have welcomed the RNLI to school for a Beach Safety assembly.

The RNLI have a wonderful website with lots of really useful resources if this is something that you and your children would enjoy exploring. It is sectioned into age groups too which is very helpful.

It is keeping me hopeful about a summer where we all might be able to enjoy the wonderful Cornwall coast again together.


Be determined! 

Our value for this half term is 'Be determined'. At the start of every half term we talk about our next value together and talk about how we might show it over the coming weeks. I have attached a PowerPoint for you to look at and listen to. There is a sound bite for you in each slide. I hope that you enjoy exploring the word determination and some of the challenges that I have set for you.

I hope that you are all well!

A laugh a day keeps our worries at bay... 

I hope this entry finds you all well. In these uncertain times it is important to keep ourselves going. Last night the residents of Lostwithiel stood on their doorsteps to sing their thanks to the NHS and there is a black board (at the end of my garden) with a daily joke that lightens my mood.

Be safe, be well, be kind.
