St Piran Class newsletter Friday 8th January 2016

This Week

This week we have started out new topic ‘To the rescue’. In English we have been writing sentences about sea rescues using connectives. In Maths we have been revisiting place value and counting on in tens from any two digit number. In History this week we have discussed the differences between sea rescue in the past and in the present.


This week we have revisited ‘a-e’, ‘i-e’, ‘e-e’ and ‘o-e’. Next week we will be revisiting ‘u-e’ and the alternative pronunciations for ‘a’, ‘e’, and ‘i’.

Home learning

This week we have started our new topic ‘to the rescue’. For home learning this week I would like the children to write about an Emergency service. Who are our Emergency services and how do they help us? For an extra challenge why not find out about Grace Darling.

Support tips:

  • Talk to your child about what they would like to write about.
  • Encourage your child to sound out what they would like to write.
  • Ask your child to read their writing through to check it makes sense.

Phonics workshop

A Phonics workshop will be taking place on Monday the 25th January after school in the school hall. Please come along to find out how to support your child with their Phonics. In June St Piran Class will be taking their Phonics screening check. The check involves the children segmenting and blending a mixture of real words and pseudo words (alien words, silly words or non-words) to check that they are at the expected level. Children who do not pass the Phonics Screening check will be expected to retake the check in year 2.


Football coach

On Friday mornings our class will be taking part in additional football sessions run by a Football Association qualified coach. Children will need their PE kits in school on Mondays, Wednesdays and also Friday mornings.



After school and lunchtime clubs begin next week. Please make sure your child knows which clubs they attend and we will also remind children. Please let us know if they are not attending the club on a particular day.




Many thanks

Rachel Kitaruth and Laura Dix

Boscawen Newsletter 8th January 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back!
This week, have started our new topic, Shake, Rock and Roll. We have been thinking about the structure of the earth and how volcanoes form. We looked at a selection of stones and thought about the similarities and differences between them. We also built towers and knocked them over by causing earthquakes (shaking the tables they were built on!)
We have also started reading our new class book – The Firework-Makers Daughter by Philip Pullman, an exciting story about a girl who wants to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a firework-maker, but he does not think it is a suitable job for her. The story follows her adventures as she tries to prove herself.
In Maths, we have been consolidating our knowledge on place value. Next week, we will be concentrating on mental maths and practising different strategies to help us solve mental maths problems.
We are delighted to let you know that our class assembly will be at 2.30pm on Tuesday 2nd February 2016. We hope you can all make it to see all the children’s hard work!
As always, if you have any questions or would like to talk to us, please come in to see us or email us on esmitheram@perranporth.cornwall.sch.uk or sburns@perranporth.cornwall.sch.uk .
Thank you.
Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Burns.
