St Piran Class Newsletter- 7th October 2016

This week in English we have been writing labels and captions. The children wrote some excellent labels and captions for fairy tale items. In Maths we have been adding two single digit numbers together and in Art and Design we started to make our wolf masks.


This week in Phonics we have revisited ‘ai’, ‘ee’, ‘igh’ and ‘oa’. Next week we will be revisiting ‘oo’, ‘ar’ ‘or’ and ‘ur’.


Home Learning

This week in our Maths we have been learning all about addition. For Home Learning this week I would like the children to solve the following addition number sentences. For extra home learning this week have a go at making your own addition machine (please see picture to the right) or adding single digit numbers to two digit numbers. E.g. 44 + 9 =

Support tips:

  • This week we have been exploring strategies that we can use to help us solve addition calculations. The children have been using their fingers, adding on using a number line, making two groups using objects and counting how many objects there are altogether, and using tap and unwrap (a mental maths strategy which the children should be able to show you).
  • Talk to your child about how they would like to solve the number sentences.
  • Use household objects to represent the numbers if they would like to make two groups of objects.
  • Encourage your child to check that their numerals are formed correctly.

Junk Modelling

On Tuesday the children will be constructing their own houses in DT with Mrs Davis. If you have any spare clean junk modelling materials such as cereal boxes, egg cartons, yoghurt pots, plastic bottles etc. we would be grateful.


Harvest Festival

On Thursday the 20th October we will be celebrating Harvest by having a Harvest Festival with Trevithick class at St Michael’s Church in Perranporth. (9:45 start) We will be walking the children down and back to the church. We ask the children to bring in a contribution to our donation to the local foodbank. Suitable items include tins of fruits, vegetables, soups, packets of rice, pasta and biscuits. (No nuts please) Thanks in advance for you donations. Looking forward to seeing you at the celebration.
