Welcome to St Piran class 2017-2018!

Hello, my name is Mr Barnes and I will be teaching St Piran Class this year. My aim for the year is to make learning as fun and enjoyable as possible for all the children.

We will be following the Inspire curriculum this year. You can find out more about what each unit entails by clicking and downloading the overviews below.

Don’t forget to log in to ClassDojo to see photos and to read our weekly newsletters.

The Inspire Curriculum

To ensure we meet the new targets of the National Curriculum we will be using The Inspire Curriculum, which is a topic based approach to learning with units changing every half term. Our first topic is called ‘The Big Build’. You can find out more about what these topics include by using the links below.

Reading

Your child will be asked to read and have their reading book changed at least once a week by myself or another member of the team. If they have finished their book and would like to change it please feel free to change their reading book in the morning. Reading books are kept in colour coded boxes just outside of Penhaligon class. If you are unable to change their book please mention to one of the team that their book needs changing and we will provide the children with the opportunity to do so at a later point in the day.

Home learning

In St Piran Class ‘Home Learning’ is celebrated and the children enjoy showing their classmates the learning they have completed in their own time. If your child would like to bring in home learning to share please make sure that it is related to our current topic or our maths. Home learning will also be set for your child on a weekly basis, this will be in their home learning books. Home learning books will be sent home on a Friday with an activity linked to the weeks learning, the books then need to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.

PE Kits

PE in St Piran class takes place every Monday and Wednesday afternoon. Each child will need their own labelled PE kit in school on these days. We will be going outside for PE as much as the weather allows us, so please make sure your child has either trainers or plimsolls in their PE kit. As the weather turns colder children are also allowed to wear either dark tracksuit bottoms or leggings as part of their PE kit.
