Dear Parents and Carers

It was great to see so many of you at our assembly. Thank you! We hope you enjoyed it. The children did very well to remember all their lines. We will have another class assembly next term. 

We continue to learn more about the Great Fire of London. This week, we learnt about Samuel Pepys and his diary. He wrote about the Great Fire as it happened. We found out that he buried some of his belongings in his garden in an effort to save them from the fire. He even buried his cheese! A good website to view which you can access at home is:

In Literacy we imagined what the fire must have been like and we used our senses to write about it. We are trying very hard to improve and up-level our descriptive writing by using amazing adjectives and a range of connectives to join our ideas.

In Number this week we have been writing word problems to match multiplication and division number sentences:

4 x 6 = 24

The baker needs to put his buns into packets. He has 4 packets and fills each packet with 6 buns. How many buns has he baked?

20 ÷ 5 = 4

There are 20 children and they are put into teams of 5. How many teams will there be?

Please continue to read regularly with your child at home and remember to record this in the reading diary. In addition to their school book, it would really help us to know which books they read for personal enjoyment at home so please record those in the diary. Also, please remember to encourage your child to complete the reading activities.

It is really great to see Penhaligon class having a high percentage of attendance during this half term so well done! Remember that extra playtime is rewarded each week to the class who has the highest rate of attendance.

Please remember to visit the class blog on the school website: http://perranporth.j2webby.com/?cat=11

On the blog you will find the weekly spelling lists as well as photographs and fun information about what your child gets up to in class.
