Christmas FUN RUN!
What an amazing event! Thank you school council for organising and running it - you were and are fantastic! Also, we done to all phase 3, you persevered and encouraged one another all the way - AWESOME JOB!
Mr Hoban has been working hard with a variety of children on a Friday afternoon this term. In Autumn term 1 the focus was rugby and in Autumn term 2 the focus has been football. The children have progressed hugely and have loved the sessions - thank you Mr Hoban.
On Wednesday 5th December, 13 children from years 5/6 took part in a Swimming Gala at Redruth School. Although there were a lot of nerves, everyone tried their very best. There were several races including front crawl, back stroke, breast stroke, butterfly and a relay. We took home an amazing SIX medals for first places and also had several second places. All the children challenged themselves throughout the afternoon showing amazing resilience! Well done everyone!

This term several children went up to Redruth to take part in a badminton workshop. All the children learnt lots of new skills and some played badminton for the first time. The children had many laughs throughout the day and it was a wonderful opportunity to meet new children and grow in their confidence. Mrs Haigh said, “They made so much progress throughout the day and it was wonderful to see them all persevering and growing in confidence!”


On Wednesday, the year 5/6's had a football match against Treleigh. We won 2-1! WHOOP! Charlie V scored the first, followed by Harley T. It was a tough match but we all persevered. We all tried our hardest and we were overwhelmed when the final whistle went - we had such a sense of accomplishment and joy! Caden our goalkeeper for the first half kept us in it (with some fabulous training by former goalkeeper Cayden Tiddy!)

Thanks for reading,

Charlie V, Jacob SP and Caden S


Mr Tomlinson's Football comments:

What a fantastic result. 2-1 to Pennoweth.

How proud am I of all eleven children that participated today. Not only was their attitude spot on but the resilience they showed was of a fantastic high level. Even under some extreme pressure they found enough resolve and energy to keep their opponents at bay. This, for me , was a wonderful example of never giving up and importantly playing not only for the team but also for Pennoweth school.

I know we are all very proud of them as they should be proud of themselves.

Well done all of you.

Mr Tomlinson

Fun Run
The first week back after half term, Yr 3,4,5 and 6 took part in a fun run. Lots of children and staff members ran for 20 minutes around our school field. It wasn't just about growing in awareness of what charities do to raise money for worthy causes, but also for getting fit and keeping healthy. Even though it was very wet, we still decided to run and persevered. We all had fun; even the spectators who were watching and cheering on had a blast. At the very end of the fun run everyone who participated earned a fun run medal - it was a great experience and fun to do with friends. Some of the children who ran the most laps were chosen to take part in cross country against other competitors around Cornwall. They are running at Redruth Secondary School representing Pennoweth Primary School. Well done all involved!
On Friday 16th November,  7 children took part in a gymnastics workshop at Redruth School.  Everyone put in a lot of effort and improved massively during the day! They all learnt two routines throughout the day and finished off with performing individually in front of everyone! Well done!
Wow - all 29 children that take part in after school netball club played in a netball fixture against Treleigh school, held here at Pennoweth. All of the children behaved fantastically and encouraged both teams.It was a wonderful experience and we are looking foreard to the next match!
