St Piran Class Newsletter Friday 15th April

This Week

This week we have started our new topic ‘Brilliant Bodies’. In English we have been learning about the story ‘Funnybones’ and writing our own book reviews. In Maths we have focussed on place value this week. We have been making and ordering two digit numbers and solving number word problems. On Tuesday we had our first Forrest School session and used clay to make creatures and faces.


This week we have learnt the alternative spellings for ‘oa’ and ‘oo’. Next week we will be revisiting the alternative spellings for ‘sh’, ‘ai’ and ‘igh’.

Home learning

To consolidate our Maths learning, this week’s home learning is based on place value. Children either need to order the single digit and two digit numbers or solve the number based word problems provided. For extra home learning this week log on to Mathletics to access the place value activities which I have set. Please note your child has a new Mathletics password in their home learning book. For an extra challenge give your child clues about a number and ask them to tell you which number you are describing. For example, this number has two digits and has 3 tens in it. It is less than 39 but more than 35. This number is even. This number is one less than 37.

Support tips:

  • Use counters or other objects to help your child see the numbers and understand their value.
  • Help your child read the question carefully.
  • Encourage your child to check through their activities.


Forest School and PE kit reminder

Please remember that all children need to bring in a clothes, footwear and waterproofs for our forest school sessions. Please be aware that these clothes may get dirty. All children need a full PE kit in school for our PE lessons which take place on a Monday and a Wednesday. We will continue to go outside for our PE lessons and children need either plimsolls or trainers for our lessons.


After school Clubs

After school clubs start next week. Please make sure your child knows which clubs they are going to.


Many thanks

Rachel Kitaruth, Laura Dix and Sam Barnes
