Lostledan

Welcome to Lostledan's Page

Our Lostledan team are Miss Molden, Miss Evens and Mr Banks.
 
Lostledan currently has Years 1, 2 and 3 and follows both the Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculums.

The children follow 'RWI' phonics, Alan Peat and VIPERS approaches for Literacy and also use a 'Maths Mastery' format for the teaching required by the new National Curriculum for Maths.
During the afternoon, they use an Immersive Curriculum to deliver the foundation subjects and we have a range of P.E. specialist teachers to support our P.E. coverage.
Harvest Festival - Tuesday 20th October 2020
 
Our Harvest Festival was slightly different this year, but we were still able to hold our service over Zoom! Thank you to all who donated food for the Food Bank.
Stone Age Tools
 
Today, we created our very own Stone Age tools! We have been learning about Neolithic Homo sapiens and Neanderthals and how they hunted for their food. Check out our woodwork skills!
Amazing Artefacts
 
This afternoon, we had the opportunity to hold a range of Stone Age artefacts! We were able to look at axes, arrows, spear heads and urns that have been found in Cornwall. It was fantastic!
Pendennis Castle
 
We had such a great time at Pendennis Castle! We learned lots about why Henry VIII built both Pendennis Castle and St Mawes Castle, to protect his country and how he was successful in defeating the King of France in doing so. We also got to try on Tudor outfits and explore the castle.
Tudor Times
 
Since revealing the next monarch on our timeline as Henry VIII, we have been learning all about his six wives! This morning, we painted portraits of Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr. Check out our work! 
The Battle of Hastings
 
Today, we learned all about the first Norman King of England, William the Conqueror. We made our own swords and shields and re-enacted The Battle of Hastings in our playground - it was fantastic! 
Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary
 
We had a fabulous time at Porfell Wildlife Park and Sanctuary! We had great opportunities to observe some rescued animals, visit a Kenyan village and handle a skunk! 
Harvest Festival - Wednesday 16th October 2019
 
Thank you for joining us in celebrating the Harvest Festival and for hearing our message about Kenyan coffee farmers!
Hakuna Matata!
 
We learned the numbers from 0 - 20 in Swahili, as this is the language that some Kenyan people use. We also looked at the phrase 'Hakuna Matata', thinking about the true meaning behind this message. Check out our giant artwork!
Blue Day!
 
We learned about malnutrition in Kenya and decided to do our bit to help! As a class, we organised a 'Blue Day' for the whole school to participate in. We ended up raising £50.00 for UNICEF. Thank you for your donations.
We're Staying Healthy!
 
We created some healthy rice dishes with different varieties of rice and lots of vegetables. They were so yummy!
Happy Fathers' Day!
 
We decided to design and create some Ancient Egyptian coasters from clay, as Fathers' Day gifts. We used hieroglyphics to create secret messages for our Dads - we hope you liked them!
Pasta Pyramids
 
Miss Molden set us a challenge to complete with a buddy! We made pyramids from pasta and card. We persevered and the finished products looked great...!
Planting Story Boxes
 
We have been thinking about what plants need to grow and recently had a wonderful opportunity to take part in a planting competition! We had so much fun planting story boxes, based on the traditional tales 'The Ugly Duckling', 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Humpty Dumpty'.
Red Nose Day 2019
 
We raised £100.00 for Comic Relief this year; dressing up in red and holding a bake sale! 
Thank you to all the staff, parents and pupils who supported this cause - it is much appreciated.
Eden Ice Play!
 
We had a great experience on the ice at the Eden Project; ploughing snow, riding sledges and making hot chocolates in the playhouse! We wonder if this is what it's really like in Antarctica...
Christmas Carol Concert - Tuesday 11th December 2018
 
Thank you for joining us and hearing us sing!
Children in Need 2018
 
We raised just over £152.00 for Children in Need this year; dressing up and holding a bake sale and bingo event. We had a great time and won lots of Pudsey prizes!
Thank you to all the staff, parents and pupils who supported this great cause.
Our Wet and Windy Woodland Walk
We made Fruit Sparklers!
 
Today is 5th November and to celebrate, we designed and made fruit sparklers! We used watermelon, pineapple and blueberries - healthy options to accompany our healthy eating theme this week!
