This Week

This week in our English we continued with our Sensory trail leaflets and focussed on adding adjectives to our writing. In Maths we have been learning about measurement and weight. We made our own blueberry flapjacks using a recipe from ‘I can cook’ and weighed the ingredients with Miss Dix. In Science we carried out a senses investigation. We investigated whether we could identify mini-beasts using our sense of touch, whether we could identify who was talking using our sense of hearing and whether we could spot which item was missing during ‘Kim’s game’.


This week we have learnt the alternative spellings for ‘ie’, ‘ea’ and ‘ir’. Next week we will be revisiting ‘ue’, ‘au’ and ‘aw’.

Home Learning

For your home learning I would like you to write about something you have done this weekend or a previous weekend. For example you might have gone to the park or to the beach or attended a birthday party. I would like everyone to write at least one sentence. Don’t forget your capital letters, full stops, sounding out and adjectives. As an extra challenge write a diary entry about one event which took place during the weekend.

Support tips:

  • A recount is a type of text which re-tells an event. It is written in the first person and in the past tense.
  • Events should be written about in chronological order.
  • Help your child to read through their own writing to spot their own mistakes.
  • g. First I went to the swimming pool. Then I got changed. After that I got into the pool and had my swimming lesson.

Miss Dix

Unfortunately after half term Miss Dix will no longer be working at Perranporth School.  We will all miss her and wish her all the best for the future.


Many thanks

Rachel Kitaruth, Laura Dix and Sam Barnes
