Tribal Warfare Sports Day! 
It was incredible to be able to hold a sports day this year and to see so many family and friends turn up to support our children, even in the July rain! As always, every member of #TeamPennoweth showed us how supportive, positive, resilient and ready they all are! 

Crofty Football Competition:

On Thursday 3rd March, 12 children from years 5 and 6 (Yeshua, Fleur, Alicia, Walter, Jack, Tommy, Ellie, Mikolaj, Fletcher, Bo, Saqib and TJ) went to Pool Academy to compete in a Crofty football tournament. We played 5 games: Roskear, Pencoys, Portreath, Treloweth and Rosemellin. In these 5 games, the children played phenomenally well and worked incredibly well as a team, even when substitutions were made. Ellie as our captain was thoughtful and made some brilliant decisions. After our five matches, we had 7 points as we drew 4 of them 0-0 and won one, thanks to an amazing strike by Walter! This meant that we progressed to the semis! Even though the play was incredible (especially by Ellie and Bo) no goals were scored in the semi final match which went to penalties! Jack, our goalie, saved some amazing shots and even managed to score one of his own! This meant that we reached the final against Treloweth.

Like the semis, the final ended goalless thanks to our brilliant defence. This meant that we had to find out the winners through penalties again! Both Ellie and Fletcher scored amazing goals and Jack again saved the day as our goalie. When Treloweth missed their final penalty, the cheers from Team Pennoweth were deafening. We came first and are through to the Peninsula football finals in April! Pennoweth received a trophy and each child received a gold medal. I am unbelievably proud of our team; not only how well they played but the teamwork, resilience, and positivity shown was unmatched by any other team. Well done #TeamPennoweth, you are superstars!

Tribal Sports!
Not being able to take part in our usual amount of sports events this year has been incredibly sad. However, during July, team Pennoweth have been competing in a series of tribal sporting events!
It has been wonderful to see the children in the outdoors, being active and having fun with their class; this year has seen so little of this. 
We look forward to extending our tribal warfare over the next academic year.
Keeping fit and healthy whilst at home!
Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is keeping well and active during these challenging times! I thought that as PE coordinator, it would be great to update our PE blog with activities and tips to help keep you and your families happy and healthy both mentally and physically whilst you are stuck at home! I hope you enjoy some of them.

Beat the teacher!!
See if you can beat Miss Crane, Pennoweth's head of PE, in some physical challenges! Are you up for the challenge?!

The recording cuts off at the end of this video a little abruptly, but I managed 25 figure of eights! Can you beat me? 

We are very lucky at Pennoweth to have the opportunity to give all families free access to our PE scheme RealPE. They have developed lots of home learning activities all based on the PE children do at school. There is a daily and weekly guidance for families and activities ranging from EYFS to year 6. 
If you would like to have access to this brilliant scheme, please email and I will happily give you the login details to this great resource that will bring hours of fun and activity to your household.

Friday 13th March                                                                                             Sport Relief!!!
On Friday, Pennoweth hosted a Danceathon to raise money for Sport Relief! The children came into school dressed in sports gear with their dancing shoes on! From 9am, each class came into the hall and had a really fun dancing session with Miss Crane, Mrs Dennis and Miss Bray. There were some excellent moves across the school! Over lunch, the speakers were sent outside and the children had the opportunity to keep dancing throughout the hour. From 9am - 2pm, there was always someone dancing at Pennoweth! It was such a fun day and there has already been over £300 raise for Sport Relief. Donations can still be made on our JustGiving page. It is amazing to know that having fun as a whole-school can have such a positive effect for those in need throughout the world. Well done team Pennoweth!

Basketball Workshop!
Today, we were very excited to take a group of year 5/6 children to Redruth School for some basketball skills workshop and tournament. 4 different schools were involved in the workshop and children from each school worked together as the teams were mixed up. This was an excellent opportunity for children to not just work with their friends but different children from different schools! The children did a series of drills and skills led by the Sports Leaders at Redruth, then played a mini-tournament. Josh, Caitlyn and Mia received medals at the end of the tournament but everyone who went was an absolute superstar and is a credit to our school. Well done team Pennoweth!

Today, Miss Crane took 9 excellent young footballers from years 3 and 4 to Pool Academy for a football tournament with 4 other schools within our Crofty MAT. We played 10 minute 7 aside games on the gigantic astro turf pitches at Pool Academy and everyone played incredibly well! It was a challenging few games but Pennoweth got through to the bronze medal match!

Pennoweth were incredibly fair, showed excellent teamwork and were mature and sportsmanlike. Extra congratulations go to Bo who played phenomenally and was awarded with player of the tournament!

Years 5 and 6 Football tournament!
Today, Miss Crane took 10 of our best football players (Jacob, Talan, Callum, Harley, Ethan, Nathan, Cassie, Ollie, Niko and Whitney) to Pool Academy for a football tournament with 5 other schools within our Crofty MAT. We played 7 a side matches which were ten minutes each. The team from Pennoweth were absolutely amazing and did not lose a single match or concede any goals. We came third overall in the tournament and were awarded with a bronze medal. The children showed incredible sportsmanship and played every single game with an amazing amount of confidence and honesty. A special award was given to Talan for being player of the tournament as he saved every single goal that came his way! Well done Pennoweth, you are amazing!

Krav Maga workshop
This afternoon, years 5 and 6 had a treat! Dan and Ellie from Krav Maga Cornwall came to deliver a workshop to children teaching them about positive attitudes, how to deal with negative emotions and showed us some simple self defence moves.
The children had a good warm up and then discussed how to be more confident and show confidence in ourselves. After having discussions, the children then practised how to defend themselves against someone grabbing their arm. None of the moves were intended to hurt but it showed children that they are able to stand up to people and be strong in themselves.
We hope to invite Krav Maga Cornwall back again next term as all of the children thoroughly enjoyed the visit!
