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.

Super Heros!
KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet from evil villains! Who’s your favourite superhero? Spider-Man? Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who’ve achieved great things. Or is it those people who save lives in our emergency services that you admire most? Superheroes have super senses. Use yours to identify mystery items by their smell, taste, sound and touch. What do true superheroes eat to keep their senses and special powers sharp? Can we stop the dastardly plans of Professor Slime? He’s dropping his villainous instructions around town. We must stop people following them, but can we make it in time? Is that phone box free? Please excuse me – I have to save the world! ZAP! WHIZZ! ZOOOOM!
