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 - Autumn 1
Me and my community.
 
 
This project supports children with settling into the new rules and routines of school and encourages them to make new friends and feel confident in their class. It teaches children about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. This project also teaches children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.
