Festive Cheer 

Class 1 Wow Nativity

We started the week with a wonderful nativity in church, my heart was warmed by the fact that we could perform to the children's family members. I was so proud of the children in class 1, they learnt their lines and performed beautifully. They really enjoyed it and so did I. Thank you to Mrs Wakeham and Mrs Gravener for all their hard work.

Merry Christmas

The school has been filled with festive cheer and the children have taken part in some wonderful activities. We even had a special visit from Santa just before the class parties. It was very exciting. 

On behalf of all the staff and children, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. We look forward to welcoming you back in the New Year on Tuesday 4th January 2022.

Please see our winners for the decorated Christmas Stocking below.
Jasmine in Class 4 was the lucky winner of the Christmas Hamper name the donkey competition with Brownie.

Thank you  

Our secret Santa left us these lovely decorations.

We were so excited on Monday morning to find that our secret Santa had left us some fantastic decorations on our school fence. Christmas has arrived at Pelynt Primary Academy. There has been some wonderful learning going on in classes linked to the festive period. I have seen children learning about the Christmas Story, some wonderful writing inspired by The Snowman, festive song writing and plans for a Victorian Christmas.
It is a wonderful time of year and is made extra special when you are in a primary school.

Thank you to our secret Santa.


Sucessfully Supporting Charities 

The children are always so keen to support a charity and to learn about the significance of the work that the charity does. This term the children in class 4 sold the poppy items and we all came to school in non-inform for Children in Need. As a small school it is hard to raise large quantities but we are always keen to contribute in whatever way we can.

Thank you to everyone for your support for both the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal and Children in Need. 
We raised £152.35 for the poppy appeal, which is our highest yet. The total for the district was £3761, we are really proud to have played a part in that.

We also raised £68.70 for Children in Need.



The whole school dedicated learning time to Remembrance this week. They produced some wonderful pieces of art which were taken to Pelynt Spar, in order to decorate the shop.
This beautiful picture was created at home by Scarlet.

Class 1 

Our youngest children were so proud of their poppies. In their art lessons they produced some wonderful poppies to decorate Spar and they also made a beautiful recycled wreath. They took the wreath to the church.

We felt privileged to send a group of year 6 pupils the church to represent the school.

Our Year 6 children proudly attended the remembrance service at the church, whilst the whole school gathered on the playground to remember. The sound of the last post bugle travelled from the church to the children on the playground. It was a very poignant moment for everyone. 

Poppy wreath

The children in class 4 had produced some beautiful poetry in their English learning. Two of their poems were chosen to be written on our wreath. The wreath was placed on the memorial during the service.

Have a wonderful half term 

Here are the winning 'witches hats' from the FOPs competition. Thanks to everyone who entered the spooktacular contest!

We would like to wish everyone a happy half term break. It has been a busy half term and the children have worked extremely hard. We have enjoyed celebrating the harvest in church and begun making plans for all of the events that form part of the next half term.

A newletter will be sent out during the first week back with all of the information about everything planned for the next half term and the events diary page of the school website contains all of our key dates for events too.

The children all return to school on Tuesday 2nd November, as we have an INSET day on the Monday.

We hope you all enjoy a safe and happy holiday.

Best wishes

Miss Edwards

Lunches and Photos 

School Photos

Thank you for your patience with the school photo situation. You'll be pleased to hear that we've re-arranged for them to be taken on Thursday 25th November. This is for individual and sibling photos.

School lunches

After half term we are moving to an electronic system of booking lunches. Please read the communication from Mrs Trevaskis very carefully. You will be able to see the menu options and pre-book meals for your child/ren.


Harvest Celebrations 

The whole school took part in harvest celebrations at the church and were warmly welcomed by Reverend Allen and Mrs Morrell- Davies. The children enjoyed singing and listening to a short story.

Thank you so much for all the donations which have gone to the food bank.

Key Stage 1 have written some fabulous harvest poems and there has also been some interest sparked by learning about harvest in other countries!


Week ending 8th October 

In PSHE the children have been continuing to learn about their emotions. 
The main focus has been to reflect on how their behaviour affects others. 

Our English focus in school is really developing well. Key Stage 2 children have been marking each other's work focussing on spelling, punctuation and grammar. The children have been taught how to do this appropriately and are very keen to spot any mistakes!


September Update 

New spelling journals

Key Stage 2 have been using their new spelling journals and are keen to write in them. They practise their spellings in various ways, including drawings to support their memory retention of the word.

Key Stage 1 have started to use the 'Spelling Shed' app for homework and are enjoying the interactive side of this.

In PSHE our focus has been on emotions. In EYFS this has included drawing faces and describing which ones are happy, sad or scary. Also, they have been discussing how different emotions look and feel.
