Penhaligon Newsletter 12th June 2015

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for all the cardboard boxes which have been sent in.  We will begin constructing our carnival floats shortly!

In our topic work, we have begun to look at Brazil and have written a list of things we would like to find out about the country.  We were really impressed with the children’s questions, e.g. Does the rain make it cold at the equator? And Who was the first person to go into the Amazonian rainforest? We will begin our research on these questions and more next week.

On Wednesday, we spent the whole morning outside – firstly using the environment as inspiration for our poems with similes, and then working in the Environmental Area creating miniature adventure courses for woodlice!  The children all worked very hard.

We will continue to swim on Mondays and Fridays, so please ensure your child has swimsuit and towel with them on those days.

This Wednesday, we will have our first trip to the beach.  Your child has a letter with a tear off slip which needs to be returned as soon as possible – we would really like some parent volunteers to accompany us, so if you would like to join us, please let either of us know, thank you.

As always, if you have any questions, please drop in to see us or email us on sburns@perranporth.cornwall.sch.uk or esmitheram@perranporth.cornwall.sch.uk .

Thank you.

Mrs Burns and Mrs Smitheram.
