Boscawen Newsletter 22nd April 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,

This week we have researched further into Roman Britain as well as modern day Italy. The children have really applied themselves to their learning, researching Roman gods and finding out more about Boudicca.

We have also continued with our Maths topics of addition and subtraction, using money and using decimals, as well as reading scales and filling in missing numbers.

We had a visit from our Class Governor this week. Mr White showed the children his robes and wig which he wears in court – the children were fascinated and took the opportunity to ask lots of interesting questions!

Could you please ensure that your child brings in their reading diary and PE kit on Fridays.

As always, if you have any questions, drop in to see either of us or email us on or .

Thank you.

Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Burns.

Boscawen Newsletter 15th April 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you had a lovely break. It’s lovely to see all the children back in school ready to learn!

We have had lots of visitors this week – the lifeguards from Perranporth Beach to teach us all about beach safety, then Lilah’s mum kindly brought in 3 chicks for us to meet! Today, we had a visit from Luke Temple, a children’s author, who entertained us with excerpts from his books as well as very funny stories and videos – I am sure your children will want to tell you all about it!

We have also started our new topic about the Romans. We have learned about Romulus and Remus and the foundation of Rome as well as Boudicca and her battles with the Romans in Britain. The children are very enthusiastic about learning more about this interesting part of history.

Next week, we will start homework and spellings. In the meantime, you child has their ’99 Club’ sheet to practise and should be reading every night.

As always, if you have any questions, please drop in to see either of us or email on or

Thank you.

Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Burns.
