Welcome to Starfish Class!
Over the course of the year this page will be updated with events that are going on within school and all the fun learning that we have been getting up to!
PE - Our PE date has changed! We will now be doing PE on Wednesdays. You can wear PE kit, this is red/ black joggers when it is cold. You can also wear your new PE hoodies on PE days only!
We advise that you send your child into school every day with a coat even if it does not look like rain as we like taking our learning outside as much as we can :)
Forest Fridays- on these days we will be going into the Forest all morning! Forest Fridays will be starting Friday 18th September
Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting muddy to school and send children in with wellies to change into when we go! Please make sure that they have their arms and legs covered by a piece of clothing e.g. trousers and long sleeves.
Please remember that our time slot for the start of school is 8:50 - 9:00 however if you have a child with older siblings in school it is advised that you do not enter the school grounds until 9:00 am to accommodate for the older childs start time. This is the same for the end of the day with our end time being 3:00 - 3:10. If you have a child with an older sibling it is advised you don't enter the school grounds until 3:10.
Our new topic is ' All around the World'!
We will be visiting a range of different countries throughout our learning! We have a travel agents role play to aid your learning and have planned lots of exciting activities!
Merry Christmas Starfish Class
We worked so hard and had lots of fun learning our Christmas song 'Rudolph the red nose Reindeer'. Please click the link below to see a video of us performing it. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas.
Sit back and enjoy.
In this topic we are blasting off into space on a rocket and looking at the different planets in the solar system. We will be looking at the celebrations of Diwali and Bonfire night and the history behind why we celebrate these events.
We will also be looking at nocturnal animals and hibernation.
We will finish this topic off with the celebration of Christmas and complete a range of fun activities around the celebrations
In Maths we have been looking at making numbers with Numicon by only using the numbers that we have learnt. We extended our learning and used bigger numbers that we have not yet looked at with White Rose Maths.
In phonics we have been working really hard to learn our Phase 2 sounds.
We now know all of these sounds!
s a t p I n m d g o c k ck e u r h b f ff l ll ss
We have been trying hard to think of new words containing each sound. How many words can you make with our sounds?
Everyone in Starfish class has been working really hard to learn our nativity songs. We didnt want to miss out on performing a Nativity for you all to see. We will be performing a Covid friendly nativity which will be recording and posted on the webpage by the end of the week for family to see.
We are looking at the story of 'We're going on a bear hunt' and how the characters will be feeling in different sections of the story.
Stay and play
We had lots of fun during our stay and play sessions the week beginning the 31st August!
