Penhaligon Newsletter 16-01-15

Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, I would like to welcome Kai to our class.

This week
In maths, we have been looking at data handling and converting tally charts into block graphs. The children then answered questions based on their graphs. In literacy, we have been improving our descriptive writing techniques ready for Big Write today when we wrote out own versions of Cinderella. In our topic work we looked at and compared the Diamond Jubilees of Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II, as well as discussing the Commonwealth and its countries.

Next week
In Maths next week, we will be focusing on different methods of recording addition and subtraction. In literacy, we will be finding out about Queen Elizabeth II and writing a biography and in our topic work, we will continue studying the Commonwealth.

PE kits
Just a quick reminder that some children do not have a full kit at school – can you please check that your child has trainers/plimsolls, shorts and a change of shirt for PE each week, please.

Victorian Day
On Thursday 29th January, I am planning to have a Victorian Day in class – it would be great if the children could come in Victorian-style clothes as we will be having lots of Victorian school activities and lessons. It should be fun! Hopefully this gives you plenty of time to find some suitable clothes.

Dates to remember
29th January – Penhaligon Victorian Day
30th January – Penhaligon’s turn to provide cakes for the cake stall
10th February – Penhaligon Class assembly

As always, if you have any questions, please come in and see me or email me on sburns@perranporth.cornwall.sch.uk .

Thank you.

Mrs Burns
