Miss George (Class Teacher)
Ms Brougham and Miss Blackwell (Support Staff)
Welcome! What a wonderful few days we have had in Stars class. The children have been so enthusiastic starting school and full of energy in the mornings. We have been very impressed with how happy and independent the children have been coming into school. We have been getting to know your little Stars and finding out about their interests. Dinosaurs, fairies, dogs and monster trucks all seem very popular, we’re certainly going to be exploring some interesting topics this term. This half-term we will be creating a class charter, talking about our feelings, building friendships, enjoying stories, learning sounds and working with numbers one to ten. You can find out more information on our Curriculum Planner.
Despite all that is happening in the world at the moment, Stars class continue to shine bright and make great strides in their learning at home. We have been exploring mini-beasts and have enjoyed some of our favourite stories, such as ‘Norman the slug with the silly shell’ and ‘Superworm’. During our daily walks, or whilst exploring our gardens, we have been hunting for mini-beasts. We talked about the different shapes, patterns and features that make each mini-beast special. We continue to practise our writing, writing clues about mini-beasts for Miss George to guess on our online learning platform, Seesaw.
We’ve played lots of Maths games and have been practising using positional language, knowing our left and right and beginning to tell ‘o’clock’ time on an analogue clock.
We continue to enjoy our PE sessions, and have enjoyed Joe Wickes, cosmic kids yoga and Zumba online.
We have lots more exciting learning ahead of us, including exploring the life cycle of a ladybird, finding out about plants and how they grow.
