Boscawen Newsletter 28th April 2017


Dear Parents and Carers,

This week, we have continued with our Roman topic and the children have started work on writing information leaflets in literacy.

In maths we are looking at time – telling the time on an analogue clock as well the number of days in a month or week and how many months in a year.  Could you please encourage your child to read the time as much as possible and discuss how long you spend doing activities etc.

This week, we had our first times table test – we found out that lots of us don’t know the division facts for the table.  Any practise you can squeeze in would be very useful! I have put a practice sheet for the 3 times table on the reverse of this sheet for children to practise too.

On last thing, could everyone check their children’s sweatshirts to see if they have accidentally taken home Alex Day’s top? It is labelled and he lost it earlier this week. Thank you.

As always, if you have any questions, please email us on or .

Thank you.

Mrs Burns and Mrs Smitheram.

Penhaligon Class Newsletter Friday 21st April

Penhaligon Newsletter 21.4.17

This week the children have been learning about money in their maths. They have been using coins to make different amounts. In English the children wrote a recount of their holidays and we have started exploring our new text for this term ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. In PE we have started our Sports day practise and in Science we planted our own beans with Mrs Davis. In our SEAL this term we will be exploring relationships and changes.

Home Learning

This week’s home learning is linked to our maths learning. The children have an amount and some coins. They need to draw the coins needed to complete the amount. Use actual coins to support your child and record the total after each coin is added. For extra home learning this week make your own story map of Jack and the Beanstalk.



This week in our Phonics we have been learning about the past tense. Spellings this week are linked to irregular verbs.

Group 1- went, gave, had, told, slept, came, saw, made, ran, took.

Group 2- thought, bought, found, drew, caught, wrote, learnt, became, shone, chose.


Times tables

This week we will be learning the two times table. The children have a copy of the 2x table in their spellings book. They need to be able to recall the 2x table facts in and out of order. There will be a times table check every Friday.

St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 21st April

St Piran Class Newsletter- 21st April 2017

This Week

This week we have introduced our new topic about our bodies.  Thank you very much for supporting the home learning activity and delivering some beautifully labelled drawings.  Children learnt so much from each other during class discussion about these.  Summer told us about the smallest bone in our body and Gida told us about the longest.  They were fascinated that we have a cage to protect our lungs too!


This week we have learnt ‘ai’, ‘ou’, and ‘ie’.  Next week it will be ‘ea’, ‘ir’ and ‘oy’.

Home learning

For home learning this week I would like the children to practise counting forwards or backwards from any number up to 100.

For an extra challenge Play ‘I spy a number’.

Give your child a clue to try and guess the number you are thinking of eg. Say, “It is 2 more than 31”, or “It is equal to 5 + 5” etc.

It’s not necessary to record anything in the home learning book but if your child would like to write a clue about a number, we will try and guess it in class.

Support tips:

  • Encourage the children to notice that the numbers are getting bigger when they count forwards and smaller when they count backwards.
  • Use the language ‘more/greater than’ and ‘less/fewer than’ when you are playing “I spy a number”.


Dates for you Diary and Reminders

We are a nut free school.  We kindly ask that children do not bring in nuts or obvious nut products as part of their snacks or lunches.


Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school with suitable shoes for running.  Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.


Wednesday 24th May – Year 1 and 2 Sports Day 1:30pm start

Boscawen Newsletter 21st April 2017


Dear Parents and Carers,

The children have made a great start on our new topic, What did the Romans do for us?

This term is a very busy one, so here are some reminders and dates:

  • Tuesday 25th April – swimming starts – don’t forget your kit!
  • 12TH June – SRE week
  • Wednesday 14th June – Key Stage 2 Sports Day
  • PE will be on Fridays, we will try to get outside as often as possible, so please check that your child’s trainers/plimsolls are in their kit.

As you already know, we are focusing on times tables this term.  By the end of Year 3, children are expected to know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables by heart.   They should be able to recite the table in order, answer multiplication out of order and know the related division facts for each table.  This week, we will start with the 2 times table.  We know a lot of children are already confident with this table so this will be a chance for them to recap these number facts.

If you need to contact us at any time, please drop in to see us or email us on or

Thank you.

Mrs Burns and Mrs Smitheram.
