Starfish Class

Welcome to Starfish class!

 

Starfish is the first class children join when they start their journey of learning through Mevagissey School. Our learning is fun, exciting, challenging and encouraging. Our teachers are Mrs Hoare, Miss Bailey and Mrs Gilbert.

 

 

Children will be starting to recognise numerals to 10 and count these amounts accurately. We will be focusing on developing correct number formations when writing these numbers. The children will be learning counting rhymes to support their understanding for numbers. We will move onto practical adding and subtraction as the term progresses.

 

We will teach phonics daily through Read, Write, Inc. The children will be learning to form letters correctly and write their names. They will also be encouraged to mark make. We have a ‘WOW’ wall display in the classroom and the children are being encouraged to take ownership over which pieces of their learning are displayed.

 

We will be sending home some ‘WOW’ stars so you can write down any amazing achievements the children make at home. Send them back in, once completed and we will display and celebrate in the classroom.

 

Topic - Spring 1
Dinosaur Planet.
 
 
Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl. They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth.
 
Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet. Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts. Create a dinosaur museum and invite visitors to see your awesome dinosaur artefacts.
 
You could even do a dinosaur dance or produce some prehistoric percussion. Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus? Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes, he did. Run!
