Does Money Make the World Go Around?
Today all children in year 3 and 4 took part in three special activities to start them thinking about their new curriculum enquiry “Does Money Make The World Go Round?”
One activity was to role play the journey of a refugee family. The children imagined packing a bag under pressure,the hazards of travelling by road and foot before paying to board a boat to safety.
Despite having “packed” a bag, many of them ended up with very little or even nothing by the end of their long journey.
The children all showed great maturity throughout the challenging activity which really helped them to empathise with the situation of real life refugees.
Well done everyone!

Terrific 2's

A Visit from a Pilot at RNAS Culdrose

Years 1 and 2 were very lucky to have a visit today from Nik, a pilot from RNAS Culdrose. They have been learning about significant people from the past, specifically the Wright Brothers and they were very knowledgeable when Nik questioned them about what they already knew. A big thanks to Nik for coming in.

What would you say to a G7 Leader?

On Friday, Wheal Busy thought about what they would say to a G7 leader should they bump into them over the weekend. The whole class was incredibly thoughtful and here are a few of their key ideas. What do you think? We think we have some leaders of the future in year 4!
