St Piran Newsletter Thursday 25th May

St Piran – Home learning – Thursday 25th May 2017



For home learning this week I would like the children to practise talking about what they’ve been doing!  Talking about things really helps children to order their ideas so that their writing makes better sense.

On the first Monday back, I will be asking the children to write a recount of their holiday.  It will give them extra confidence if they’ve had the chance to talk their ideas through before coming into school.


Support tips

  • Talk to your child about a particular day or activity.
  • Ask them questions about it. Can you remember the name of where we went? Which part did you enjoy most?  What happened after that? Can you remember what we did first? Etc.
  • It’s not necessary to write anything down. If you wish you extend your child’s learning further, encourage them to draw pictures of the events in order or to use words such as first, then, after, finally when they talk about the events of the day. (It is better to focus on 1 activity/day out rather than try and order the whole week – we’re not writing a diary)


Children may bring a small souvenir to help remind them of a day out.  It could be a leaflet/ticket about an activity or a stone/leaf they found at the park/beach/garden.


The Phonics Screening Check will be taking place the week beginning the 12th June. Please continue to practise reading, phonics and spellings wherever you can.

Penhaligon Newsletter Thursday 25th May

Penhaligon Newsletter 25.5.17

This week we have been finishing our instructions learning and practised our multiplication. In Science we labelled the parts of a plant with Mrs Davis. A big thank you for everyone who came to support Sports day. The children were brilliant and everyone had an excellent afternoon.


Home Learning and Reading

For home learning over the holidays I would like the children to research the colours of the Brazilian flag and to colour in the template of the flag. For an extra challenge why not research the phrase ‘ordem e progresso’ and find out what it means.

Spellings Group 1- cry, all brother, key, want, worm, can’t, didn’t, see, sea.

Spellings Group 2- reply, always, monkey, watch, towards, television, treasure, happiness, national, station.

Times tables- The week beginning the 5th June we will be practising the 2x and learning the multiplication and division facts.

Please ensure you are reading with your child as often as possible. The children need to be practising their reading at home to ensure that they continue to build their fluency and develop their understanding. Please initial their reading record when you have read with them.



Recorder sessions with Mrs Whatley will continue on Monday afternoons after half term. If the children have their own recorders remember to bring them in on Mondays.


Thank you for your continued support


Mrs Laity and the Penhaligon Team
