Shelterbox Visit
As part of our natural diasters topic, Gwithian Class visited Shelterbox in Truro. Their fantastic, state-of-the-art centre gripped the children and the volunteers were informative and fun. They learned how to pack a Shelterbox, did an exploration quiz to find out more about the charity and also heard stories how the charity has changed people's lives. 
Surrealism Art
The children have begun learning about the surrealist painter Rene Magritte who was a surrealist painter in the early 20th century. They looked carefully at his work and asked and answered many questions based on what surrealism meant and how this is shown in his wonderful artwork. They were then tasked with creating an eye by sketching carefully (most found this incredibly tricky!) and were then asked to use pastels to show what the eye could see giving a reflection of the devastation of Pompeii or in modern times, Hawaii's erupting volcano Kilauea. 
Scientific investigations - Evaporation
This half term, the children have been learning about states of matter (solids, liquids and gases). With this, they have begun to understand the process of evaporation by carrying out an investigation to see how long it takes for the liquid (water) to evaporate with the puddle of water decreasing in a certain amount of time. This was done fairly by putting a chalk outline around the puddle so results could be collected. Luckily, it was a reasonably warm day!
Pizza Day!

Gwithian Class made authentic Roman pizzas today - it was sizzling hot!
The children had such an amazing day by first making dough in the morning. In the afternoon (once the pizza oven had reached optimum temperature) they put their pizza bases into the oven using a paddle. They then put on some delicious toppings and baked them again. It's clear from the photos just how much they enjoyed the whole experience!

The day was carried out by three incredible parents who always go above and beyond and we cannot thank them enough. Thank you Tamsyn, Nessie and Emma for all of your hard work!
