Boscawen Class Update from Miss Pedlar

Dear Parents,

I am writing to keep you up to date with the timetable and my expectations for Boscawen class. All children need to have their PE kit in school on a Tuesday and Wednesday this will begin from the 18th of May.  I would like all children to read every night for 10 minutes at home. Homework every week is to practice their spellings in their neatest handwriting, as I am rewarding children with pen licences and writer of the week, also they need to practice their time’s tables. I will be testing spellings and a chosen time’s table every Friday morning. I will send home, at a later date, a new homework grid for the new topic after half term. We will be carrying out optional SATs tests the week before half term, the week of the 18th of May. If you have any concerns please do pop in to the classroom and see me, or just pop in and say hello it would be great to meet you.

Kind Regards,

Miss Pedlar

Penhaligon Newsletter 12th September 2014

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have had a really enjoyable first full week back in Penhaligon Class.

In literacy, we have learnt about riddles and the children have written their own based on different animals – can they tell you their clues for you to guess the answer?

In numeracy, we have been recapping tens and units, the children have been counting on in tens as well as breaking numbers into tens and units to make number sentences, e.g. 50+7=57.

In our new topic, What do I need to be me?, we have been looking at similarities and differences and the off-spring of different animals, as well as taste testing fruit for the smoothies we will be making!

Can we just remind everyone to check that all clothes are labelled? We still have the occasional item un-named which makes it hard to return it to its owner.

Also, as we have a stomach bug at school at the moment, can we remind everyone that the school rule is that if your child vomits or has diarrhoea, they need to stay off school for 48 hours from the last time it occurs. This really helps limit the spread of bugs.

Don’t forget that on Wednesday you can come in to Meet the Teacher – just come to our room 3.30 to 4.00 or 5.30 to 6.00.

And finally, well done to our Readers of the Week who all read at least 5 times at home this week and recorded it in their reading diaries: Callum, Sam L, Sam M and Esmee. Well done all of you!

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Wednesday.

Mrs Burns and Mrs Willetts.

St Piran September Newsletter

Welcome to St Piran class, I hope that you have enjoyed the summer holidays and are feeling refreshed and ready for a new year to begin. I will write newsletters regularly to keep you informed of any news, our topics and important dates. I will also be updating our class blog regularly which can be found on the school website under class blogs and then St Piran. If you have any concerns or questions please see myself or a teaching assistant as soon as possible.

The Inspire Curriculum

As you may know the Government have introduced a New National Curriculum. To ensure we meet the new targets of the curriculum we will be using The Inspire Curriculum, which is a topic based approach to learning with units changing every four weeks. Overleaf you will find information about our first topic ‘The Big Build’ which focuses on construction and the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’.  Next week we will be learning the story off by heart, it would be great if you could help them practise it.


It is important that all children are reading at home for at least 10 minutes daily. Their reading books will be changed weekly but please feel free to change your child’s reading book if they have finished the book or they are not enjoying it. When you have read with your child please leave a comment in their reading records, so that we can monitor your child’s progress and address any issues or concerns. Book Club will also be starting next week, during Book Club your child will read with myself once a week in a small group and then complete a consolidation activity based on their reading from the previous day.


Following the new School policy on homework, St Piran children will be expected to complete a weekly Numeracy or Literacy based activity, which I will alternate, in their homework books. The first piece of homework will be set on Friday the 12th of September and will be due in by Wednesday the 17th of September so that it can be marked. Children will also be given a set of 30 spellings which they are expected to practise at home during the Autumn term, these will be sent home soon.


P.E will happen on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. It is essential that your child has a named P.E kit (a white t-shirt, black shorts, and plimsolls or trainers) in school every day as the hall timetable may change.

Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons

On Tuesday afternoons St Piran will be taught by Mrs Burns who normally teaches Penhaligon class. On Wednesday afternoons St Piran will be taught by Miss Dodson and Mrs Burns.

Meet the teacher

You are invited to a welcome meeting on Wednesday 17th September at either  3:30-4:00 or 5:30-6:00 for an informal chat about your child’s learning.

Penhaligon News Letter 5th September 2014

Welcome to Penhaligon Class!

Firstly, we would like to welcome our two new girls who have joined us this week: Aimee and Saffron.  They are both settling in really well and we are all pleased to see them in our class.

The class is taught by Mrs Willetts on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and by Mrs Burns on Thursday and Friday.

As you may know, the government have introduced a new curriculum for primary schools.  To make sure we cover everything that is required, we have changed our curriculum slightly and will now be following a scheme called Inspire.  It is in 4 week blocks and is topic based.  We think the children will love it! We have attached a summary of our first topic, What do I Need to be me?

We will have PE on Wednesday (taught by Miss Hendra) and on Thursday taught by Mrs Burns.  Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit, including trainers, in school at all times.  Also, please label all uniform and PE kit, as you can imagine, there can be quite a lot of confusion when everyone has the same clothes!

Each week, we will give the children 10 spellings to practise at home, ready for a test on Friday.  We will also start giving homework out next week, this will go home on Wednesday, to be returned by the following Monday.  Homework should take about 20 minutes and will usually be able to be done independently.

Dates for your diary:

Wednesday 17th September: 3.30-4.00 and 5.30-6.00 Meet the teacher

Friday 24th October: Staff training day, children not in school

Monday 3rd November: Staff training day, children not in school

Please also find attached your child’s Parent Consent Form.  Please complete this, sign and return it as soon as possible.

If you would like to speak to either of us, please pop in to see us, or if you prefer, you can email us on .

Thank you.

Mrs Willetts and Mrs Burns.
