St Wenn School Pelicans

The children took over: An Art lesson in progress

Welcome to Pelican's class. We are comprised of Year 5 and 6 children and base ourselves in the lofty heights of the mezzanine level.

Our teacher is Mrs Foley and we often have support from Mrs Berry (Head Teacher), Mrs Curtis (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Ward (Teaching Assistant).

Over the past year, we have certainly been living through a significant period in history and in Pelican's class we have worked together to continue learning everyday, whether in school or at home: From cooking over fires, creating inspirational tales, designing and stitching our own re-usable facemasks and immersing ourselves in the struggles and successes of Nelson Mandela in apartheid South Africa. 

We have realised and appreciated that community spirit isn't within the bricks of school but rather in our relationships and support networks that have remained strong throughout this turbulent moment of history.


We are incredibly pleased to be back together again on site and our topic for this term is Colour
