The first term in Stars class flew by! The children are now back in their school routine and ready to start learning about a variety of new topics. Our overall theme for this term is “Celebrations”. This will include learning about different celebrations, such as, Chinese New Year and Easter. We will also be celebrating our favourite toys, as suggested by one of the children, and celebrating new life when we have duckling eggs delivered. We are looking forward to another exciting term ahead and can’t wait to meet our new duckling friends!
What a lovely start to the new school year we have had in Stars class! It has been an absolute pleasure to get to know our new starters and they have done so well. The children have picked up the school routines quickly, they have made new friends and perhaps most importantly, they have had lots of fun!
We have kicked off the school year with a topic about Elmer and have enjoyed listening to Elmer stories. We have talked about how he is different to his friends and related that to ourselves. Using the children’s ideas, we moved on to celebrating Birthdays and planning parties. The children have worked hard to count the people at their party, decorate our role play area so the animals can have a Birthday feast and write invitations to invite people to our party.
Over the term, Stars class have continued to work as a team to plan our topics and we have learnt about transport, superheroes and bonfire night. The children have been working hard to write their names, as well as focusing on using their new phonic knowledge to label and write sentences about our different topics.
We have completed the term with lots of exciting new experiences, learning about how people celebrate Christmas and thinking about the changes in seasons as we move into the colder months. The children have enjoyed a whole school trip to the pantomime, a visit to the church to see a Christingle service and have performed fantastically in the school nativity plays. Stars class have enjoyed developing their art skills to create Christmas decorations and holiday presents for their families. We hope they like them!
