Penhaligon Class Newsletter Friday 9th June 2017

Penhaligon Newsletter 9.6.17

This week we have started our new topic which is based on Brazil. We are learning to read Music in our recorder sessions and have started to think about changes in our SEAL learning. With Mrs Davis we have been learning about Brazil and Geography.


Home Learning and Reading

For Home Learning this week I would like children to try to answer the different measurement questions. Please feel free to adapt if needed.

Spellings Group 1- here, hear, one, won, sun, son, be, bee, knight, night.

Spellings Group 2- there, their, here, hear, quite, quiet, one, won, sun, son.

Times tables-  Next week we will be practising the multiplication/division facts for the 5x tables.

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.



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

St Piran Home Learning 9th June 2017

St Piran Home Learning –  June 9th 2017


Home learning

Next week we will be using money in our Maths lessons.  For Home learning I would like the children to familiarise themselves with the different coins and notes.  With a crayon, they can do some coin rubbings in their home learning book and label them with the amount each one is worth.

For an extra challenge, how many different ways they can make 20p?



Support tips:


  • Look at the coins together. Talk about how we know how much each is worth.


  • Show your child equal amounts, for example, that ten 1p coins are the same amount as one 10p coin.
