Dear Parents,

This term we will be investigating the question ‘How does what we eat affect the world?’ and finding out about Cornish produce. In our topic lessons, we will be finding out about Cornish food and how it has travelled the world. We will then investigate what happens to our food after we’ve eaten it! We will also be tasting, designing and making our own pasties. For this, we welcome donations of £3 per child to go towards the cost of the ingredients. Please let me know if your child has any dietary requirements that the school are not aware of.

Dance specialist, Sarah Fairhall will be teaching dance on a Wednesday afternoon and the children will be playing Dodgeball on Mondays. Please ensure that the children have their PE kits in school on those days.

Home Learning Opportunities


  • Investigate your food cupboard. Look on your food packets and see if you can find out where your food was produced. Can you find anything that was made in Cornwall?
  • Celebrate St Piran’s day on 5th March by drawing your own St. Piran’s flag.
  • When you are out, look in the fields and see if you can identify what the farmer is producing. You could carry out your own survey to find out what is being produced locally (e.g. dairy cows, cattle, chicken (for eggs), chicken (for meat), pigs, sheep, wheat, potatoes, barley, etc).
  • Cook a meal for you family to digest! There are some simple recipes on this website: Don’t forget to tell them what happens to their food after they’ve eaten it!
  • If you lose a tooth this term, ask the tooth fairy if you can keep it for a science experiment. Place your tooth in a glass of fizzy drink and check it every day for 2 weeks to see what happens.
  • Keep reading to anyone that will listen!
  • Keep learning those times tables!
