KS2 - TT Rockstars

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice - each week concentrates on a different times table.

This format has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 12,000 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.
 
Each class will take part in at least one TT session per week - logins are given to children so they can even play it at home!

 

KS1 - Sumdog (suggested home activity) 

Sumdog is an amazing interactive platform where children can improve their mathematical skills.
 
It is used in thousands of schools worldwide, and designed to motivate children to work on maths.

As children play, they answer questions. Sumdog personalises the questions for each one, and tracks their progress through the school curriculum.
 
 
 
Sporting Clubs at Penryn Primary Academy
 
We have had excellent numbers attend our after-school clubs, with the aim of providing outstanding sporting opportunities for every child at Penryn Primary Academy.
 
We are continuing to offer some more great clubs in the spring term; provided by GoActive. All equipment will be provided and there will be no cost for attending. The clubs on offer in Spring 1 are: golf (key stage 1 and 2), gymnastics (key stage 1 and 2) and tag rugby (key stage 2).
 
 

Reading Karate

This is a fantastic incentive that we, as a school, are very excited about. We hope that it will encourage your child to read at home and help them to achieve different coloured wristbands.

Bands:

Number of Reads: Coloured Wristband:
15 White
15 Yellow
20 Orange
20 Blue
25 Purple
25 Brown
30 Black
Total = 150

It is your child’s responsibility to write their reads into their yellow reading record and to show it to their class teacher.

Your child should be reading a minimum of 4 pages to count as one read.

Only 1 read will be counted per day.

Parents MUST sign each read in the reading record.

How it works:

When your child has achieved 15 reads they will need to show their yellow reading record to their class teacher who will then present them with a white wristband.

When they have read a further 15 times they will show their yellow reading record to their class teacher again. The class teacher will then swap the white wristband for a yellow one. This will continue until your child achieves their black wristband.

Once your child has achieved their black wristband they will start the process again (black/white, black/yellow etc.) but they keep their black wristband.

At the end of the academic year your child will be able to keep any black wristband that they have achieved.
