Hello, we are ‘Super St Piran’ the Reception Class at Perranporth School.

This page aims to inform you of our curriculum, topics and information relating to the class. If you have any concerns please see us or a teaching assistant as soon as possible. You can also keep up to date with what is happening in St Piran Class using Class Dojo, which you will be informed about at our ‘Welcome Meeting’.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Mrs Lampier will be teaching in St Piran Class and on Thursday and Friday Mrs Williamson will be teaching the children. The Teaching Assistant is Miss White.

Reading and Homework:

All the children will have a book to share with you  and it is important that they do a little bit of reading every night. This term we will be changing their reading books once a week, however it is important that they bring their book-bag to school everyday. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record as this helps us assess their progress and ensures we can count the number of times they have read. Thank you! Please check your child’s book bag regularly for notes and newsletters. Children have received a laminated copy of the 45 key words and handwriting and numeral practice. Encourage your child to practise forming the letters and numerals correctly.

Additionally for Home Learning, we will post a ‘Home Learning Challenge’ grid on Class Dojo each term. The children should complete at least 3 of these challenges throughout the term. These challenges can be completed and brought in or shared via Class Dojo. These will all be celebrated in class! For reference, please see below:

Helping your child to learn

  • Share books and read with your child every day. Use the RWI videos to support your child to learn to read.
  • Get your child to school on time. Every second counts!
  • Encourage your child to be independent; dressing, toileting and eating.
  • Encourage your child to complete their Home Learning Challenges (found on this page and Class Dojo)
  • Practice maths together (counting, recognising and writing numbers 0 – 20)
  • Discuss, explore and question with your child whilst out and about.
  • Come along to school events like parent’s evenings. This lets you know what is going on, and lets your child know that you are supporting them.

WOW Moments:

Please share any WOW moments with us. This can be done using Class Dojo (messages or portfolio) or bring it in on a piece of paper.  These can be used to help build a picture of your child’s development. We have included some previous ‘WOW moments’ so you can see the kind of information that might be relevant.

‘Ollie used my lap top to write the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.’

‘Joe sang Cornish songs to his Daddy at home.’

‘Emily used a knife to butter her own toast this morning.’

‘Ben amazed us by riding his bike without stabilisers for the first time.’

‘Jade wrote all her number to 10 without help from me – well done.’



This term P.E will be on a Monday afternoon and Friday morning. On this day, your child can come to school in their P.E. kit (black shorts/ joggers, green t-shirt and school jumper or fleece with trainers or sports shoes).

Forest school

Tuesdays are our forest school afternoon. Children will need their wellies and waterproofs on Tuesdays.

Please ensure that your child’s name is written clearly in all uniform. Please also send your child in with a bottle of water, please make sure it is labelled clearly with your child’s name and put it in the blue tray next to the book bags.

Round Up:

All offers of support for reading practice with the children in St Piran Class would be gratefully received – please let us know if you are able to give up some of your time.
