Welcome to the Sparkling Stars Class with Miss Story and Mrs Jones!
We are the EYFS class and are a mix of Nursery and Reception children. You can start learning with us in the term after your 3rd birthday!
Please phone the school office if you would like to come and visit our class if you are interested in joining us!
World Book Day!
The children really enjoyed dressing up for World Book Day on Wednesday! They were all able to tell us which character they had chosen and were looking forward to sharing their stories with each other. We had two Gruffalos, Cat in the Hat, Peter Pan and a Butterfly, just to name a few! Everyone's costumes were brilliant :)
Our topic for this half term is ‘Winter Wonderland, where we will be learning about the different seasons as well the Arctic and Antarctic and the type of animals who live there. We will also be looking at the Ice Age, Chinese New Year, and finishing the term by learning about the story of Frozen and all things icy!
Making bird feeders!
Seeing as it is Winter, we have been talking about why the birds have no food to eat outside so it is important to feed them. With that in mind, we made our very own bird feeders to put in the Woodland Area! First we made holes in a cardboard tube to thread the string through, then rolled the tube in honey to make it sticky! Then we covered them in lots of bird seed before taking them up to the woodland to hang in the trees.
Chinese New Year!
The children have all really enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year through making Chinese lanterns and lucky red envelopes with gold coins inside. We even had a Chinese New Year party where we got to try lots of different Chinese food as well as practising our dragon dancing with the ribbons in the hall!
Term 2 - Magic and Wonder!
This term, we have been learning about Halloween, Witches and Wizards, Bonfire Night, Cinderella, Fairies and Elves and everything festive in the lead up to Christmas! Some of our favourite learning experiences were making pumpkin soup, creating magic wands to cast spells, designing lots of wonderful firework pictures, writing wishes for our Fairy Godmother and making gardens for the fairies and elves.
