Spring 2018

The children have all come back refreshed and ready to learn after the Christmas holidays.  It has been fantastic to hear about the exciting things they have been up to with their families.  Our topics this term will be focused on the theme of “Celebrations”.  We will be learning about celebrations within different cultures, for example Chinese New Year, as well as finding out about how Christians celebrate Easter.  The theme will also incorporate celebrating new life when we have some ducklings coming to stay! As well as this, we will celebrate our favourite books around World Book Day.

Stars Class were very excited to have a whole day of cooking at school with the cooks from “Alphabake Cooking School”.  The children learnt about safety in the kitchen, how to cut vegetables carefully and how to mix ingredients to make their own meal.  Each child took a pasta bake and some banana muffins home for their tea.  We hope they enjoyed them and shared some with their family!

Autumn 2017

Welcome to Stars class!  The children have made a fantastic start to school life and are enjoying their new experiences.  They are making friends with each other, being polite to all of the staff and showing care for the school environment.  In the classroom, the children have created a class gallery of their self-portraits and they are working very hard in their lessons.  Outside of the classroom, the children are sharing the equipment nicely and using their imagination to create exciting games and activities.  What a great start to the school year!


In Stars Class, the children choose the topics that they would like to learn about.  They have had some fantastic ideas already and these have included “Birthdays”, “Transport” and “Superheroes”.  The children have made their own vehicles using junk modelling resources, dressed up as superheroes and created their own healthy party plates.
We have also been learning about different festivals and special days that children in our class celebrate at home.  Our Harvest version of “Old MacDonald had a farm” went really well when we performed it to our parents and carers in assembly.  We have also learnt all about Diwali and brought in a range of things that light up which showed how we might celebrate the “Festival of Light”.  We have talked about our own experiences of Bonfire Night and how we can stay safe around fireworks, as well as drawing our own firework pictures.  As Christmas is fast approaching, we have been learning about Advent and the Nativity story.
