Welcome Back Everyone!

We hope you had a lovely Easter break and are ready and raring to go for the new and final term this year. Our topic for this term, (as you may well have heard) is Keen to be Green and our first study will be all about the Rainforests. The children are keen to make the classroom into a rainforest and so they are allowed to bring in clearly named (relevant) props if they wish.


As usual we would like to begin with a child led creative homework project. Please encourage your child to create something special that represents one aspect of rainforest life. This could be anything from a poster, to a rainforest creature or animal with it’s own facts, a 3d model or mobile, a j2e webpage or any other creative project linked to rainforests!  This can be bought in/completed any time between now and the 10th of May. All home learning will be shared in assembly and displayed in the KS2 corridoor.  The children will be bringing home weekly multiplication tables to learn instead of spelling this term. These will be tested on a Friday.

We are also studying plants, how they grow and adapt and the best conditions for growth. We need lemonade bottles or similar to begin growing our bean plants. Please bring in as many as you have, over the next week. Any unwanted seeds would also be gratefully received! You never know, if it goes well we may be inviting you to a home grown lunch in the latter part of the summer term!


PE continues to be on a Monday and Thursday. However as the summer term continues there are several outdoor activities that require kit and so we would like it in school at all times please.

Any questions please do pop in or call school and leave a message. Mrs Smitheram or I will call you back ASAP.

Perranporth School Newsletter 26th April 2013

Dear Parents/Carers,

This has been a particularly busy week, with two days to complete the interview process. I was extremely proud of the children and how polite and friendly they were to the candidates and other visitors. Mr Tranter would like to thank FOPS for organizing the delicious lunch and representing parents during the presentations.

Following the individual interviews and extensive debate between the governors the decision was made to appoint Mr Alistair Johnson who is currently an assistant head teacher at Dobwalls Primary School. He will be taking up the appointment in the Autumn Term and he is looking forward to meeting you at the first opportunity.

Trevithick Class assembly was excellent on Wednesday and showed what great learning takes place in the Early Years Class. Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend the assembly and for all the positive comments.
