This week we couldn't just choose one star of the week so all the children in starfish are our stars, for having such an amazing year. Here's a little look back at some of the things we got up to this year. 


It been lovely welcoming some of Starfish class back this week. We've had lots of fun with are friends.



Good Moring,
I hope you have all enjoyed the weekend. 
This week we are going to be looking at money. below are some ideas and interactives games which might help to support learning. 
A family game of money bingo would be a brilliant way to help with coin recognition. 
Please remember to keep those pictures coming, I'd love to see what you are achieving at home.



Good morning Starfish, 

It's Mrs Gumbs. Please watch my video to play along with my new game. It's called 'What's in the Slime?' You have you guess which numbers are hiding in my slime!

Grab your number lines and your number flashcards from your learning pack. When you think you have the right number hold it up and shout it out!



Good Morning Starfish,
This week we are going to be looking at creating some repeating patterns using some found materials as well as some materials from your learning pack.
I'd love to see how these repeating patterns turned out so please remember to ask you grown ups to send me your pictures so I can share them with Mrs Sweet. 
Missing you all,


20th April 2020

More adjectives here from Mrs Gumbs!


Character descriptions

I have done a character description from one of my favourite stories about Alvin the smelly alien. Have a go at doing a character description of your favourite character from a book, or television or even one of your toys. 


Good Morning Starfish,
I hope you have all had a lovely Easter. I have posted some numeracy and literacy ideas on here for you all to have attempt at home with your families. 
Below are some links of songs/websites which are familiar to the children in Starfish class.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0dJWfQHF8Y - This number song is great, pause the song on a multiple of 10 and encourage to say what number comes next. 
https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/caterpillar-ordering - This is great interactive game where you can order/sequence different numbers...you can select level appropriate to your child. 
https://www.topmarks.co.uk/ordering-and-sequencing/shape-patterns - This is an interactive game where children have to select the next shape in the sequence...once again you can select the most appropriate level for your child. 
http://www.literactive.com/Download/live.asp?swf=story_files/hanging_monkeys_US.swf - This is a phonics game where children are encouraged to read the cvc word and match it to the picture. 


Please look on the Topmarks website as there are some amazing interactive games focusing on all areas of the curriculum. You can also select the most appropriate level for your child....this will help to encourage independent leaning.
