Welcome to Penryn Primary Academy! We look forward to welcoming you to our school and we feel privileged to be part of your child's learning adventure. We understand how important it is to have great communication with families and encourage you to speak with us if you have any questions or concerns. You can either talk to us at drop off/collection or book an appointment thorough the school office.
We have an exciting term planned, filled with fun topics! Please take some time to read the helpful information below and keep an eye out for our updated twitter feeds and topic information.
Snacks and Drinks
Children are given fruit and milk everyday for their snack, they do not need to bring a snack from home. Every child in Reception is entitled to a free school lunch, if they prefer they may bring a packed lunch from home.
At Penryn Primary Academy we want to promote the health and well-being of the whole school community through all aspects of food and drink, physical activity and positive emotional health. In line with our healthy school policy we provide each child with a Penryn Primary Academy water bottle which is kept in school and cleaned and filled for your child.
Our children get to explore our outside areas and participate in our Forest School on a regular basic, please can children bring a pair of wellies to keep in school with their name clearly marked inside. As our weather is very changeable, please send your child to school with a coat every day.
Please label EVERYTHING, as you can imagine with a lot of children in Reception things can often get muddled up, if shoes, clothing etc are clearly named they find their way back to their rightful owners much faster!!
Reading and Phonics
Every day the children bring home a phonic book with the sound they have learnt that day in school. It is really helpful if you can practise this sound with your child. Once they know a few sounds you can use these sounds to make up simple words for them to read and write.
Each class has a set of high quality fiction books that the children can bring home to share with you, these books can be changed in class as often as you like. Please take the time to read with your child as it really helps develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime. We will send reading scheme books home with the children when they are ready. If your child has a reading scheme book please could you read with your child every day and sign their yellow reading record book so we know you have heard them read.
