Please take some time to read the helpful information below and keep an eye out for our updated twitter feeds and topic information.

 

Reading

We look forward to developing a love of reading with your child. Reading is the key to unlocking educational and lifetime opportunities. We really need your support with this and ask for you to read with your child at least five times a week and log this in their reading records. It is important that your child’s book bag is bought in to school every day and we ask you to check book bags regularly as we often send home letters and notes in them. 

 

Healthy School

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 daily for your child. Children will need a separate drink with their packed lunch. A healthy morning snack of fruit or vegetables is provided to every child daily.

 

PE, Swimming and Forest School

Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school everyday.  Your child will have the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons and forest school sessions during the school term, please take the time to familiarise yourself with the timetable on the website homepage.

Please can we ask you to clearly label your child’s belongings to ensure everything makes its way back to the correct child.

 

Homework

In Year 2, children will be sent home with weekly spellings which link to their phonics learning from the week. We also ask that where possible you look at the common exception words for Year 2, these can be found here:

In order to improve your child’s fluency in maths they will be sent home with work focusing on number bonds and times tables to complete at home. Each term we also send home an activity grid containing optional tasks for pupils to complete at home with their families. The activities will be linked to our topic. This is followed up with a celebration assembly to showcase the amazing work completed at home!
