We have had another super week in Starfish!
In Maths, we have begun looking at 2D shapes and learning the names for a square, circle, triangle and rectangle. At the beginning of the week, the children used different coloured pencils to draw around the shapes, holding the circle was the hardest as it kept moving!
We have continued with our phonics learning and this week we have looked at Yellow I and Miss Oh No. The children have been using the characters and their stories to remember the name of the character and what sound they make.
Starfish have also started their new topic this week – Castles. We looked at what a castle looks like and the children especially loved looking at the drawbridge on a castle and how it goes up and down. They told us that it was different from their front doors at home. In a few weeks time we would like to make our own castles in Starfish. If you have any cereal boxes, cereal bar boxes, cardboard tubes, Pringle tubes or anything similar, please can you send these into Starfish in the next couple of weeks. Thank you!
