Welcome to year 5! We are looking forward to the year ahead and our amazing topics we are going to learn about. Please take some time to read our Curriculum Map below and take a look at our school Facebook & Twitter feeds for the wonderful learning taking place in school!

We are looking forward to working with you and your children. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school office on 01326 373290 or email hello@penrynprimary.org to book a phone call or meeting with us. 

Reading Records:

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.  Please write down every time your child reads in their reading record and send this in to school with them daily.

School Meals

KS2 school meals need to be ordered and paid for in advance via ParentPay, the school lunch menu is available on the homepage of our website.  If you think you may be eligible for free school meals please speak to a member of the office team.

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 with water for your child.

We have worked hard to improve our children's knowledge and understanding of healthier choices. This year in KS2, we will be providing every child with a piece of fruit for snack at break time. No other breaktime snacks will be allowed within school.

Swimming, Forest School & PE

The children will have the opportunity to participate in Forest School sessions fortnightly.  The timetable is available to view on the homepage of our website.  

PE and Swimming lessons will alternate each week, please ensure your child has a PE kit in school and appropriate clothing is brought in for swimming.  Please see timetable on the class door or the home page of the school website (bottom righthand corner, under links and downloads).
