St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 4th November

This week we have started our new topic called ‘Let’s Celebrate’. In our Maths we have been learning about 2d and 3d shapes. With Mrs Davis this week we tasted a variety of fruit.



This week in Phonics we have learnt the ‘air’ phoneme. Next week we will be learning ‘ear’ and ‘ure’. In your child’s bookbag you should have received a list of suggested websites to support your child with their Phonics and a sheet with tips on how to support your child with their reading. If you would like any support with Phonics or have any questions please arrange a time to see me.


Home learning

This week in English our learning has focussed on the Charlie and Lola story ‘This is actually my party’. We have created our own freeze frames for parts of the story and written sentences about different parts of the story. For home learning this week I would like the children to write about the best birthday party they have ever been to. I would like all children to write at least one sentence about a birthday party. For extra home learning this week make a list or a mind map of all of the things you might need to throw a party.

Support tips:

  • Talk to your child about the best party they have ever been invited to.
  • Discuss what made it such a good party.
  • Encourage your child to sound out the words they want to use in their writing.
  • Encourage phonetic spelling unless it is a tricky word (words that we can’t sound out such as the) or a high frequency word that they recognise (e.g. have).
  • Ask your child to read through their writing to check that it makes sense and to check for capital letters and full stops.


Your child now has access to Mathletics. Mathletics is an online Maths programme allowing children to practise all aspects of Mathematics. Children can work towards certificates which are based on the amount they complete and not their level of mathematics. These certificates are awarded in assembly and the programme is hugely popular in our school.  Please find an individual log in and a password in your child’s reading record.  To log in to Mathletics use a search engine to search for Mathletics. On the homescreen in the top right hand corner click ‘sign in’. Use the username and password provided to sign in.  I have shown the children how to log on in class but they may require assistance at home.
