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.

CRASH! What’s that in the playground? Let’s go outside and take a look. Stand back everyone – it looks like a UFO has crash-landed! Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens. Create a ‘Welcome to Earth’ box for an alien explorer. What can you put in it to help explain what life is like on our planet? Would you like to be an astronaut? You’ll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do. Start off small by making an air-propelled rocket. WHOOSH! How far can you make it travel? Find out the names of the planets. There’s Mercury, Neptune, Mars and – do you know any others? I’ve forgotten the rest! Then, an alien is found! Can you help get him home? It’s got the experts in a right kerfuffle. Professor Pong doesn’t know what to do! Are you ready for take off Starfish? Hold tight. 5 4 3 2 1… LIFT OFF!
