RAINBOW MAT TIMES TABLE CHAMPIONS!!!
 
We are also extremely proud of our team who went along to the junior’s for a Times Table RockStars competition. They battled against children in the other Rainbow MAT schools and were so super fast at recalling their times tables that we won!!!!! All the hard work and practice in school and at home has paid off. Top job! Now we need to look for a nice new trophy cabinet! If you would like to now more about Times Table RockStars please get in touch with Mrs Askew our Maths coordinator in school.
Rainbow MAT Rugby Festival
 
On Monday the reception children from Troon School attended an Early Years Mini-Rugby festival at St Meriadoc Infants. They took part in a range of skill-based games and activities, including ball skills and dodging techniques. Lots of fun was had by all! Not only did the children demonstrate great sportsmanship skills but their behaviour was exemplary. They competed against Penponds and St Meriadoc Infants and Troon managed to score the highest number of points and brought home the bling!
Fantastic job Hedgehog Class, you did an awesome job.
Plastic Free Status
 
We received the brilliant news this week that we have achieved Plastic free status as a school due to our brilliant efforts in reducing single use plastic in our school. Well done to the Plastic Free crew, Miss Ashworth and Mr Firth for all their hard work in helping us achieve this fantastic accolade. Showing how much we care about the environment and how determined we are to make a positive change.
Single-Use Plastic Free Packed Lunches
Thank you to everyone who supported this initiative to raise awareness of how much single use plastic is in our packed lunches. It has definitely made all of us think about how we can reduce the amount of plastic we use every day. At school we are now recycling our pens, glue sticks, batteries and crisp packets as well as cardboard and plastic. Beech class have also written to Mr George Eustice (MP) about their concerns and to make suggestions on changes that could be made nationally.
