Landewednack School & The Little Lizards Nursery

The children welcomed Elizabeth King from “Mary’s Meals” to join them in a special assembly so they could present her with the money they had collected after Harvest Festival. “Mary’s Meals” sets up school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education. The children also hope to take part in the “Back Pack Project” in the New Year. This is a scheme that invites people to fill a back pack full of essential equipment, allowing a child in some of the poorest countries in the world to go to school.

Riley and Dylan had the honour of laying the poppy wreath on behalf of Landewednack School and Little Lizards on Armistice Day. It was lovely to see so many of our children and their families attend the service on 11th November. The children have been learning all about this memorable time during their history lessons in school, and each class was visited by Mr Jerry Legge.  Jerry is a cousin to Mrs Jane and he came in to tell the children all about his family’s own history during the world wars. The children were excited to see the precious medals that had been awarded to Jerry’s own grandfather. They enjoyed his visits very much and we thank Jerry for coming in to talk to them all.

Purple Day in aid of Pancreatic Cancer was recognised by children and staff recently when we all wore purple in memory of a very dear friend of the school Chris Broscomb.  Children in Choughs class also decorated cakes, biscuits and sold purple milkshake after school in honour of the day. We were delighted to raise £255.00 for the charity which is constantly working on raising awareness in the fight of pancreatic cancer.
 Elaine and the Broscomb family wish to sincerely thank everyone for their kind and generous donations.  Further donations can still be made by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/chris-broscomb
Christmas preparations are now well underway which always creates great excitement with all of the children. Our festivities begin with our school choir being invited to take part in the Christmas Carolaire held annually at The Lizard Lifeboat Station. This is always a real treat for both the children (and staff!) as they get to sing on board The Lizard RNLI Lifeboat, this is an event we always look forward to. Our own Christmas productions take place on Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th December when our infant children will be performing their nativity “Born in a Barn” from 2pm in our school hall.  The junior children will hold their carol service at St Wynwallow Church, The Lizard from 6.30pm on Wednesday 19th December. The Little Lizards will host their own Christmas concert in the school hall on Monday 17th December from 2pm.
We break up for the Christmas holiday at 1pm on Thursday 20th December. The Little Lizards finish at 3pm and there will be no after school club on this day. We return on Monday 7th January 2019. On behalf of the children, staff and governors at Landewednack School and Little Lizards Nursery we would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful new year.

Landewednack School & The Little Lizards Nursery

After a lovely summer holiday the children and staff are now well in to the autumn term at Landewednack School and Little Lizards. We welcomed our new youngsters in to their Reception year with Miss Beirne and Seagulls class. The children have settled well and are enjoying their start to school. 

We have made several changes within the school over the summer holiday. To enhance the learning environment of all of our children we felt it necessary to make some alterations to the classrooms in which they are taught. It is an OFSTED requirement that our foundation stage children have access to inside and outside learning areas. Therefore the children will now once again have safe and secure access to the playground at the side of the school building. Our multipurpose track was also completed on our school field over the holiday. The children are enjoying running their daily mile (or there about!) on it each day. Huge thanks to the Witchball Restaurant who very kindly donated £2000 (from their annual Beer Festival) towards the final cost of the track. The children are thoroughly enjoying using it.

Our Harvest Festival service takes place on Wednesday 17th October from 1.30pm in The Lizard Methodist chapel. Everyone is welcome to join us.

 

We break up for the half term holiday on Wednesday 17th October at 3.15pm. The school and Little Lizards will be closed on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th October for staff training. Little Lizards will be hosting their October half term holiday club from Monday 22nd - Friday 26th October. Please call Little Lizards to book your child a place or for more information.

The “Little Piskies” will now meet on a FRIDAY morning in the school hall from 10.00am – 11.30am.  All babies, toddlers and pre-school children are welcome to come along. Please call Little Lizards for more information.

Children and staff were delighted to have raised nearly £500 at their annual Easter Fair held prior to the Easter holiday and wish to thank everyone who came and supported the event. Special thanks go to our School Association who worked tirelessly along with the children to ensure the fair was a great success. Also towards the end of last term everyone came to school and Little Lizards dressed in their Sports gear in exchange for a donation to the Sport Relief charity. In recognition of our sporty efforts we were pleased to have raised £70. (see photo on back cover)
In the hope that this now heralds the start of summer (or at least some warmer and dryer weather), children in Kittiwakes class have begun their summer term sailing sessions with the Helford River Children’s Sailing Trust.
A recent Dodgeball competition held at Mullion School saw our junior children finish in joint second place. The children are looking forward to many more sporting events due to take place during the summer term. The Cross Country League draws to a close on Tuesday 22nd May with the final race followed by the medal and presentation ceremony taking place at Mullion School from 4pm. The children were excited to experience venturing into a Space Odyssey Space Dome which was set up in the school hall recently. This was a wonderful introduction for the children to look at our amazing universe before starting this terms topic on “Our Beautiful Blue Planet”
The Little Lizards weekly Toddler Group sessions are continuing to thrive. Led by Danielle Legge, it is wonderful to welcome so many children and their parents to the group.
The sessions take place every Wednesday morning in the school hall during term time from 9.30am-11am. Some sessions may be held during school holidays, please call Little Lizards for more information. All babies, toddlers and pre-school children are welcome to come along.
Staff in Little Lizards will be hosting their May Half Term Holiday Club from Monday 28th May – Friday 1st June. Please ring or call in for more details. The children return to school and Little Lizards on Tuesday 5th June after their half term holiday. (Monday 4th June is an INSET Training day therefore the school and Little Lizards will be closed on this day)
As we wish good luck to all of our children who are about the take their SATS tests at Landewednack, we would also like to wish our former pupils (who left us in July 2013) the very best of luck with their forthcoming GCSE examinations which begin this month. So good luck to Ethan, Nadine, Ciaran, Gracie, Courtney, Kerry, Matilda, Luca, Rico and Rhiannon…

Snow! Many of our children haven’t even seen snow, so imagine just how delighted they all were on the last day of February and the first day of March! To ensure the safety of our children and staff, and like so many head teachers up and down the country, Mrs Jones took the decision to close the school and Little Lizards when the “Beast from the East” came to The Lizard village. Upon their return to school the children couldn’t wait to tell us how many snowmen they had built and how many snowballs had been thrown! A truly exciting time for us all, and one which we may have to wait many more years for before The Lizard sees that much snow again. Having said that, as I write this another blizzard has just entered The Lizard village……………. A week later than it should have taken place, the children celebrated World Book Day in style by dressing as their favourite book character for the day. Harry Potter, Gansta Granny, Mr Bump and Fantastic Mr Fox were just some of the many characters to come to school on Friday 9th March. Even The Gruffalo and The Hungry Caterpillar were spotted playing with the Little Lizards!
Children in years 5 & 6 from Kittiwakes class are busy preparing for their SATS tests which take place in May. However, soon after they have been completed the children will be packing their bags to go to Butlin’s in Somerset for their annual residential trip away. To help pay for the coach that will transport the children to and from Minehead they were keen to hold a fundraising event, with the proceeds going to help cover the cost. The children organised an afternoon of fun and games with stalls and refreshments in the school hall and were thrilled to raise £307.00. Grateful thanks to everyone who came along and supported the event.
The Little Lizards weekly Toddler Group sessions are continuing to thrive. Now led by Danielle Legge, it is wonderful to welcome so many children and their parents to the group. The sessions take place every Wednesday morning during term time from 9.30am - 11am. All babies, toddlers and pre-school children are welcome to come along during the morning. Staff in Little Lizards will be hosting their Easter Holiday Club, please ring or call in for more details. There will be no Toddler Group during the Easter break. The children return to school and Little Lizards on Monday 16th April after their Easter holiday.

Following on from the success of the junior pupils, our infant children recently took part in a gym competition, again hosted by Mullion Gymnastics Club. Congratulations to Freya, Daniella, Sophie and Ruby, who finished in first place in the club group competition. Max finished in second position in the individual non-club category and we were delighted to achieve second and third places in the non-club group competition. Well done also to Cody, Ayse, Lily, Grace, Isabelle, Kerensa, Ryan and Max – a fantastic team of gymnasts!
Children in Razorbills visited The Hall for Cornwall prior to half term to watch “Awful Auntie”, the popular book brought to the stage and written by David Walliams. Miss Wells commented on how well behaved the children all were and wished to thank the additional adults who had accompanied them throughout the afternoon. Members of the Landewednack School Choir invited family and friends to a special assembly in the school hall, where they were raising awareness of the deaf charity “Sign Health”. With the help of music teacher Mrs Green, the children have been learning to sign and sing the song “Friends Forever”. Refreshments were served after several performances of the song – with the audience keen to learn to sign too! The children send their grateful thanks to everyone who donated and are delighted to be able to send £85.00 to this very worthy cause. The Little Lizards recently enjoyed a visit to The Lizard Lifeboat Station. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable morning. Staff wish to thank those who kindly showed them around, allowing the children to try on the odd helmet or two. Future crew there for sure!
Little Lizards continue to host their weekly Toddler Group sessions and warmly welcome all of the new children and their parents who have joined us recently. The sessions take place every Wednesday morning during term time from 9.30am-11am. All babies, toddlers and pre-school children are welcome to come along during the morning.
The children break up for the Easter holidays on Thursday, 29th March at 1pm and return to school and Little Lizards on Monday, 16th April. Little Lizards will be hosting their Easter Holiday Club, please ring or call in for more details. There will be no Toddler Group during the Easter break.

All of our children are being encouraged to read as much and as often as they can. We pride ourselves on the high standard of reading from the children throughout the school and they have been now been invited to “Get Caught Reading”. Displayed around the school are photographs of the children (and staff!) that have been caught reading in some really unusual places. Under tables, snuggled up with toys, reading with their pets, in the park, sitting in a tree and even on The Lizard Lifeboat, are just a few of the places that we have been seen to be enjoying our favourite books! We hope to create a huge photographic display in our school library showcasing the children reading their favourite stories.
Little Lizards continue to host their weekly Toddler Group sessions and we welcome all of the new children and their parents who have joined us recently. The sessions take place every Wednesday morning during term time from 9.30am-11am. All babies, toddlers and pre-school children are welcome to come along during the morning.
The children break up for the half term holiday at 3.15pm on Friday 9th February and return to school and Little Lizards on Monday 19th February. Little Lizards will be hosting their half term holiday club from 12th – 16th February. Please call for more information and to book your child place. There will be no Toddler Group session during that week.
On behalf of the children, staff and governors at Landewednack School and Little Lizards we wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

We have also welcomed Dan, Amber, Ruby and Astrid to Landewednack this term. All of the children have settled well and we hope they will be very happy with us.

The children have another busy term ahead with the main history topic being Ancient Greece - Archimedes even paid them a visit during a special assembly! Our after school sports clubs have also resumed and we thank our volunteers who give up their time for the children each week.

The Cross Country League has begun again this term for our junior children with the first race being held at Porthleven School. This is the first of 6 league races, two of those fixtures will include a fun run for our young infant runners later on in the season.

After a fun packed summer holiday the Little Lizards are as busy as ever and staff are already looking ahead to their October half term holiday club. Please call to book your child a place and for any further information.

Our annual Harvest Festival will take place in The Lizard Chapel on Thursday 19th October at 1.30pm. Everyone is welcome to come and join us. Finally the children break up for the half term holiday on Friday 20th October at 3.15pm and return to school and Little Lizards on Monday 30th October.


From 'Lizard Lives' September 2017 magazine:

Landewednack School & The Little Lizards Nursery

As the long summer holiday draws to a close, children and staff from the school and Little Lizards are very much looking forward to the autumn term which begins on Wednesday 6th September. Whilst our former year 6 pupils begin a new chapter in their lives at secondary school we await the arrival of our new children who will join Miss Beirne in the Reception class on Thursday 7th September.

Just prior to the children going on their summer break we were delighted to be able to introduce them to their new look library which has been refurbished and stocked with fabulous books. All of the children were thrilled and wish to thank everyone who helped make it such a special place for them to enjoy their favourite book.  A Special thank you to art teachers Emma and Lesley who have spent several weeks painting and displaying the children’s artwork which has the theme of their favourite book character or author. Also to retired teacher Mr Bolton, Lesley Skewes and her grandson Brock who have generously donated towards the new seating and books for the children.

We would also like to express our thanks and appreciation to Demelza Vincent, Claire Dark, Sue Peate and Jenna Legge who all ran the Plymouth Half Marathon recently in aid of our school. The ladies presented Head teacher Louise Jones with a cheque for £804.00. The money will go towards the proposed development of a multi surface sports track on the school field. Congratulations and THANK YOU to them all.

The autumn term will no doubt be as busy as any other term for everyone at Landewednack and Little Lizards. The Cross Country League begins again as do many other sporting events and our annual Harvest Festival will also take place in The Lizard Chapel towards the end of October. Let the new school year begin!


Open The Book
A small group of people from The Lizard Chapel and St Wynwallows Church go into Landewednack school on Thursday mornings and to Grade Ruan school on Friday mornings to take assembly. Most of the stories we act out are taken from The Lion Story teller Bible written by Bob Hartman. We try to involve as many children as we can as  helpers and they receive a certificate and sticky badge proclaiming 'I helped Open the Book'. We simply act out the story and have a conclusion which puts it in context with their lives i.e. a moral message. Although we profess our Christian faith and the children know we believe what we are saying, we do not preach to them, indeed, we finish with a prayer, but ask the children if they wish to, to repeat Amen at the end. It is not compulsary. For the last few years we have put together a display of pictures drawn by the children during wet play times at school, of their favourite stories and exhibited it in the Chapel during the summer holidays. We hope to do the same again this year so if you are passing please do call in and see their work.

A very busy summer term at Landewednack School and Little Lizards has drawn to a close. Sports Day at the school was finally able to take place after two attempts due to bad weather. A super afternoon of athletics and sporting events was held on the school field with teams Housel Bay and Polpeor being crowned joint champions. Junior children staged their annual summer production “Treasure Island” to packed audiences in the school hall. Directed by teacher Judith Green, our summer play is always a real highlight of the summer term enjoyed by family and friends.

Youngsters in Little Lizards held their own Sports Day followed by a picnic lunch on the field. The children have also recently visited Newton Equestrian Centre in Mullion where they were able to ride the horses and see the stables they live in.  The children even helped muck out the stables!

We bid a fond farewell to our year 6 children who have left us to join secondary school in September. We all wish Amy, Cole, Poppy, Ethan, Dannen, Mathew, Ryan, Ben, Beth, Anna, Anna, Joe, Gent, Honor, Luci, Jennifer, Gabriella, Daisy and Joshua the very best of luck in their new schools.

With the summer term now well underway, children at Landewednack School and Lizard Lizards are as busy as ever. Our year 6 children who will be leaving us to attend Mullion School in September spent the morning there recently. They learnt which tutor group they would be in and met their new form tutor and fellow class mates. Whilst they were at Mullion, children at Landewednack and those joining us from Little Lizards also spent the morning in their new classes, an exciting but nervous day for them all. After their busy morning at Mullion School traditionally the secondary school then hosts their annual sports afternoon where all the primary schools in the cluster come together for an afternoon of athletics and sporting events. We were delighted to be crowned champions for the 6th year running – though the competition from all of the other schools taking part was very tough. We would like to thank the event organisers at Mullion School and their Sports Leaders. 

Junior children are busy rehearsing for their production of “Treasure Island” with Mrs Green which takes place on Tuesday 18th July at 2pm & 7pm and Wednesday 19th July at 7pm.

Everyone at Landewednack School and Little Lizards would like to wish everyone a safe and happy summer – with lots of sunshine we hope!

Our junior children have recently enjoyed their annual 3 days school camp, this year visiting the Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre at St Austell. Despite the entire 3 days being plagued by persistent rain, the children (and staff) had a fantastic time. The centre overlooks spectacular views of St Austell Bay, and the children were able to take part in numerous activities, including mountain biking, problem solving and the high wire assault course!

The second day was spent in beautiful Fowey, where the children took to the water. They were split into groups of 6 and made their way up the river in either a sailing boat or canoe. The canoes were strapped together in pairs and the children had to work together to paddle and steer.

 Lunch was eaten in the pretty village of Polruan, where the children were able to walk to the castle, which had been built by Henny VIII, and was last used in 1666 to guard the entrance of the Fowey River! Then it was back to camp to enjoy an evening of dodgeball and various party games followed by hot chocolate!

Arriving back at school the following afternoon, the children, who were accompanied by class teachers Mr Griffin and Mrs Jane and teaching assistants Kate Hughes and James Green, all said that they had had a really brilliant time – despite the weather!

A break in the term is looming and staff at Little Lizards will be hosting their Half Term Holiday Club from Tuesday 30th May – Friday 2nd June, there are still places available if you would like to book your child a place. Children return to school and Little Lizards for the remainder of the summer term on Monday 5th June.

The children have returned to school and Little Lizards after the Easter holiday ready for a busy summer term. The Easter holiday club hosted by Little Lizards was very popular again and many of our children enjoyed the Good Friday Children’s Workshop organised by our friends from Open the Book.

Football coach Jamie Thompson and his colleague Dan Stidwell held a special assembly for the children who attend their after school football club with teaching assistant James Green. Jamie and Dan presented all of the children with certificates and achievement medals were given to Thomas, John and Luke. Well done everyone!

Children in years 2 and 6 are due to sit their SATs tests during May. SATS papers are compulsory national tests for primary school pupils. Children in England are required to take Standard Assessment Tests (SATs) at the end of Year 2 and Year 6. All of our children have worked hard and are well prepared, we wish them well. We also send good luck wishes to those pupils who left Landewednack in 2012 and are about to sit their GCSE exams at Mullion School. So GOOD LUCK to Harry, Tyler, Lucy, Sarah, Charlotte, Jade, Brandon and to Indigo who now attends Five Islands School on the Isles of Scilly.

Finally we are delighted to announce that Senior Nursery Nurse Suzanne Willey gave birth to her son Kaylen over the Easter holiday. Everyone at school and Little Lizards send their congratulations to Suzanne and her husband Adrian on the birth of their little boy.

Staff and children from the school and Little Lizards celebrated World Book Day in style with everyone dressing as their favourite book character. Alice in Wonderland, Willy Wonka, Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and even Where’s Wally? graced the classrooms and play areas for the day. A book fair was held during the afternoon raising £162.00 which will go towards new books and the refurbishment of the school library. Head teacher Louise Jones wishes to thank everyone who supported the sale and donated books which children sold.

Having been triumphant at the netball tournament held at Mullion School recently our year 5/6 team qualified to compete in the area finals held at Penryn College. The team finished in joint fourth position with 6 wins and 2 losses. This is a fantastic achievement for our small school competing against much bigger schools from the Truro and Redruth area. After recent postponements due to the weather, other sporting fixtures have also taken place. Kian, Max and Brock represented Landewednack School at the Peninsular Cross Country Finals at Pool Academy. Kian won the year 5 boys race and went on to compete in the County Finals in Newquay. Finishing in 4th position, Kian is now the 4th fastest year 5 boy in the county! Well done to them all. Our football team are about to take part in the Small School Football League, a basketball tournament will take place at Mullion School and the Cross Country League races are also due to be completed.  Another busy month of sport!

We have temporarily said goodbye to Senior Nursery Nurse Suzanne Willey prior to the Easter holiday as she prepares for the birth of her first baby in April. We warmly welcome Veronica Holden who will replace Suzanne at Little Lizards until early next year when we expect her to return. 

Little Lizards will be hosting their Easter holiday club, please call for further information or to book your child a place.

In celebration of World Book Day on 2nd March children and staff from Landewednack School and Little Lizards are taking part in the “Get Caught Reading” challenge. Our youngsters (and grown ups!) are being encouraged to pick up and read a book wherever they may be and be photographed whilst doing so. All of the photographs are being displayed around the school and include reading a book on horseback, wrapped up warm in the garden and even hiding away under the kitchen table. The children will dress as their favourite book character for the day and members of the school council are organising a book sale in the hall from 2.30pm with all proceeds going towards the refurbishment of the school library.

Several sporting fixtures and events had to be cancelled prior to half term due to the wet weather. So the children are still to run two cross country races, play in two football matches and compete in a netball tournament! All of these events will be rescheduled. The Landewednack School Sports Leaders take part in and oversee all of the sporting events that are held throughout the school year.

After a busy but most enjoyable build up to the Christmas holiday, children and staff have returned to Landewednack School and Little Lizards in high spirits and ready for the new term. The school library and its contents are about to be revamped with a new reading scheme also being introduced to the children. With World Book Day taking place in March we hope to embrace the children’s reading further by encouraging them to dress as their favourite book character for the day – always fun!

The Little Lizards have been busy learning all about Homes and Houses and have created a large castle made out of cardboard boxes in the role play area of the nursery. A similar topic is also being explored by the children in Class 1. Our children have competed in several sporting events during January with both infant and junior pupils taking part in Gym competitions held at Mullion Gym Club. We were thrilled that both of our teams finished in second place. The first cross country league race of the New Year took place at Mullion School. Despite the cold weather, as usual all of our children ran brilliantly. Thank you to the parents for transporting the children to Mullion and cheering them all on.
A reminder that Little Lizards will be opening their Half Term Holiday Club from Tuesday 14th February – Friday 17th February. There are spaces still available for children from ages 2 -11. Please telephone for more details.

School half term dates: Break up Friday 10th, back to school Monday 20th February.

From 'Lizard Lives' December 2016 magazine: Christmas preparations are now well underway at Landewednack School and Little Lizards. The infant nativity will take place over two afternoons, Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th December at 2pm in the school hall. This will also include a performance from our Little Lizards. Our junior children will hold their annual carol service at St Wynwallow church on Thursday 15th December at 6.30pm.

However prior to our Christmas festivities, November has also been a very busy month for us all, not just in the classroom. We welcomed several families who came to look around the school and Little Lizards during our annual Open Afternoon.

After observing our 2 minutes silence on Friday 11th November, Kerensa and Jennifer proudly laid the poppy wreath at the monument on Remembrance Sunday on behalf of the school and Little Lizards.

The school football team are currently sitting on top of the Large School Football League, which is a fantastic achievement considering the schools we have played against are much larger that us!

Children and staff also wore spots and stripes instead of their school uniform recently in aid of Children in Need. We were delighted to raise £122.83 for the charity and thank everyone who donated.

With Christmas and all of our festivities just around the corner, children, staff and governors from Landewednack School and Little Lizards would like to wish everyone a very
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

From 'Lizard Lives' November 2016 magazine: Thinking of others has been high on the agenda this half term. Staff and children from the school and Little Lizards annually support the Jeans for Genes charity, which offers help and support to the families of children born with a genetic illness.  By wearing their jeans for the day, a fantastic £102.00 was raised. The school also hosted a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and raised £118.00.

Our annual Harvest Festival service took place in The Lizard Chapel. Instead of monetary donations, the children all bought in non-perishable food items which were then donated to the Helston & Lizard Foodbank.

The children have been involved in various sporting events from Multi Skills at Mullion School, Cross Country League and football in which our team won 2 & drew 1 of their 3 matches!

We now look forward to welcoming children and their families to our "Open Afternoon" at the school and Little Lizards on Monday 7th November from 1.30pm - 2.30pm.

From 'Lizard Lives' October 2016 magazine: September started in its usual busy fashion at Landewednack School and the adjoining Little Lizards Children's Centre.  15 Reception children have been welcomed into Class 1, with a further 5 children joining the school in other classes.  All have settled well into their new environment. 

The end of last term saw the retirement of Class 4 teacher Adrian Bolton, who had taught at the school for over 16 years.  We also sadly waved goodbye to 11 pupils who left us to join Mulloin School.  We wish them all well.  Mr John Griffin was appointed as the new Class 4 teacher.  He too has settled in well and is thoroughly enjoying his new position at the school.

The Autumn term is when our Harvest Festival takes place, this year on Tuesday 18th October at 1.30 pm in The Lizard Methodist Chapel.  Children from Landewednack School and Little Lizards welcome family and friends to join them for the service and refreshments back in the school hall afterwards.
