Autumn 2019

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. We looked closely at colours and patterns and created our own Elmer elephants.

Following Elmer we have enjoyed looking at Julia Donaldson books, especially The Gruffalo. We acted out the story, labelled the characters and made Gruffalo crumble. It was delicious! We have enjoyed exploring our wildlife area, searching for signs of Autumn and clambering through the woods. Fortunately we didn’t bump into any Gruffalos on the way.

Our topics follow the children’s interests and next half-term we already have lots of ideas, including owls, food, celebrations, pirates, Numberjacks and funny stories. Look out for the weekly newsletter for more information!
