Spring 2021

An unusual start to our Spring term, with many of our Stars working remotely from home. Although our school days have looked differently, it hasn’t stopped Stars class being amazing learners and producing some fantastic pieces of work.

Following the children’s interests, we have covered lots of exciting topics. We explored the Arctics, looking at the environment and comparing with our own,  found out about the animals that live there and experimented with ice. Some of our highlights include making penguins, creating a penguin assault course, and finding the quickest way to melt ice.

We especially enjoyed our Space topic, starting it off with an exciting video of a spaceship landing in the playground! We wondered what an alien would be doing visiting Earth and made our own aliens, labelling the body parts. We enjoyed the story ‘Whatever next’ and thought about what it would be like to travel to space. We made a list of all the things we would need so we could prepare for our space adventures. We loved learning about the different planets and sang a song to help us learn the order.

We have continued to learn new sounds in phonics, explore number and shapes, keep ourselves fit through PE and think about how to persevere at a challenge. We have just started our Traditional Tales topic, focussing on ‘The Gingerbread Man’. We will be learning the story by heart, drawing story maps, before creating our own versions of the story.

In a few weeks we will all be back in class together and we can’t wait! Don’t forget to check out our weekly blog to see all our brilliant learning and if you’re on Twitter, follow Manland school to see what learning looks like for all our pupils.

Autumn 2020

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.
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.
