Penhaligon Newsletter 26th June 2015

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week we have been thinking about the months of the year, what each month is identified with and what order they come in.  The children made charts with their friends’ birth months on and used the information to produce bar charts.  Their bar chart drawing has improved hugely, well done!

On Tuesday, Year 2 had their triathlon.  We are very proud of the children’s hard work and good sportsmanship.

On Wednesday, we were lucky enough to have a visit from a professional Samba teacher who led us through some of the steps so that we could dance a Samba procession around the hall.  Everyone joined in and had lots of fun.

Next Wednesday, we will be visiting the beach again as part of our Outdoor Learning programme.  We will need volunteer helpers again, so if you would like to join us, please let either of we know. A letter with permission slip will follow.

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

Thank you.

Mrs Burns and Mrs Smitheram

St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 26th June 2015


For homework this week I would like children to write at least one sentence about an animal that they saw on our trip to the Zoo. Ask your child to explain which animal was their favourite and try to include details of the animal’s looks and habitat. The children can then draw a picture of their favourite animal. For an extra challenge write a recount of your trip to the Zoo including your favourite parts.

Support tips:

  • Talk to your child about their favourite animal.
  • Encourage your child to sound out the sounds they can hear in words.

Encourage your child to check their writing through to check that it makes sense


Newquay Zoo trip

On Tuesday we adventured to Newquay Zoo on our trip. We had great fun seeing all of the animals and even met a few of them up close. The children behaved beautifully and were a credit to the School. A special thank you to those parents who came along and helped.


Transition afternoon

On Wednesday the 1st of July St Piran class will be spending the afternoon in Penhaligon Class with their next teacher Mr Howes. This afternoon will allow the children to meet Mr Howes again and get to know him better in preparation for September.



Many thanks

Rachel Kitaruth and the St Piran team
