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, cleaned and filled with water for your child.

We have worked hard to improve our children's knowledge and understanding of healthier choices. As part of this, only fruit is to be eaten as a snack at breaktime. This is provided by the school for your child or they can bring some from home.  We ask that any grapes are sliced in half.

 

PE

Children will take part in PE lessons on Friday afternoons.  PE kit is required all week in case we have additional PE activities. We look forward to your support with this.

 

Swimming/Forest School

Your child will have the opportunity to take part in swimming lessons and forest school sessions on Thursday afternoons, please take the time to familiarise yourself with the timetable on the website homepage.

 

Homework

It is incredibly important that your child reads at home. We expect children to read at least five times a week and record this in their home learning book. One house point will be awarded per read.

In order to improve your child’s learning in maths, your child should be accessing Times Table Rockstars (TTRS) at least three times a week. This will also need to be recorded in their home learning book. One house point will be awarded for every TTRS session completed.

Your support with reading and maths is vital to ensure that your child reaches their full potential.

Each term we 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 competed at home!
