Starfish

  Welcome to Starfish Class! 

 

 

Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing Easter after a very busy spring term.

 

Our topic for the summer term is ‘How does your garden grow?’ We will begin the term by investigating what a seed needs in order to grow into a healthy plant and testing such theories within the classroom.  We will explore the best way to plant a seed and will then have an opportunity to write our own instructions of how to do so. Then, we will unpick an explanation of why seeds need certain conditions and how each element helps the seed to grow healthily. Once we have a secure understanding of how to grow a healthy plant, we will inject even more excitement into our writing by using ‘talk for writing’ to innovate the explanation text, creating brand new explanations using our own whacky ideas! For example… ‘How to grow a healthy dinosaur’ or ‘How to grow a healthy unicorn’ – the possibilities are endless!

 

During our topic lessons we will be identifying and naming a variety of common wild and garden plants and trees. We will also be investigating and describing the basic structure of a variety of common flowering plants, including trees. In addition, Mrs Pelly has very kindly volunteered to share her horticultural knowledge and skills with the children to help them grow vegetables in our school veggie patch.

Wow - what a brilliant spring term we've had!!

 

We have been extremely busy in Starfish Class learning all about animals! We have been learning about farm animals, animal poems, zoo animals, traditional tales, animal artwork and creating animal fact files!! 

 

We thoroughly enjoyed sharing our topic with you during our class assembly on Wednesday and can't wait for our trip to Longleat next week! 

 

I hope you all have a lovely and relaxing Easter break.  After Easter our topic question will be 'How does your garden grow?' I have lots of exciting things in mind and I am already very excited for next term!  

 

Ready, steady, GROW!

We have had a very busy first half term here in Starfish Class. We have learnt all about The Tiger Who Came To Tea and created our own version called The Elephant Who Came to Tea. We have been learning about how to write instructions, particularly how to make biscuits (just in case the tiger comes for tea again!) Then we had a go at putting our instructions to the test and making the biscuits (fortunately the tiger didn't turn up so we got to eat them too!).  

 

I have lots more exciting things planned for the upcoming half term. We will begin with learning all about The Gunpowder Plot and Remembrance Day. I also have some very special 'people who help us' vistors booked in to come and see us. Watch this space! 

 

 

A soggy lesson learning all about measuring capacity!

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely summer break. I have an exciting autumn term planned for your children, you will find a copy of this term’s curriculum map and a class letter below.

 

Our Learning Challenge this term is ‘’Do all superheroes wear capes?’’ To help us answer this question, we will begin by looking into the people who help us within the community.

 

This page will be updated regularly so you can see what we've been up to in class.
