St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 2nd December

This week we have finished writing our party game instructions in our English. We have been learning about counting in multiples of 2s, 5s, and 10s in our Maths.  We have also started making our Christmas crafts for the FOPS Christmas fayre.



This week in Phonics we have learnt the ‘ea’, ‘oy’ and ‘ir’ phonemes. Next week we will be learning ‘ue’, ‘aw’, and ‘wh’. If you have spare time practise segmenting words with these phonemes in with your child.


Home Learning

For your home learning I would like you to write about something you have done this weekend or a previous weekend. For example you might have gone to the park or to the beach or attended a birthday party. I would like everyone to write at least one sentence and to draw a picture or pictures. Don’t forget your capital letters, full stops, sounding out and wow words (adjectives). As an extra challenge why not write your own invitation for our Nativity.

Support tips:

  • Talk to your child about what they want to write first and ask them to practise saying their sentence out loud before writing it down.
  • Encourage your child to segment the words using their arm when they are spelling.
  • Help your child to read through their own writing to spot their own mistakes.


Our performance is on Wednesday the 14th December at 2pm. We hope to see you there. Please make sure your child’s costume is in school in a named carrier bag by the 9th December.

Trevithick mud kitchen

Trevithick class are in the process of creating their own exciting mud kitchen. If you have any children’s waterproofs or wellies that are no longer needed please bring them in. Any donations will be gratefully received.



For a Christmas craft this year we will be using pebbles. If you are able to collect any smooth round pebbles about the size of a flat satsuma please bring them in. We would be very grateful.
