Starfish Newsletter - Autumn Term 1

Welcome to Starfish Class! We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday and the children are excited to be back. We would love to hear about any stories, or see photographs, of their adventures or achievements; it would be great to celebrate them, so please send them in.

As a team, we are excited to start the school year and to inspire and broaden the children’s interests and love of learning. The new Cornerstones project is called Rocks, Relics and Rumbles. In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles project, your child will learn about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth's surface. They will investigate different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. They will also investigate soil and fossils, including learning about the work of Mary Anning. They will have the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points. They will also learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have. I look forward to supporting the children in their learning and watch them grow and achieve as young individuals.

Class Teacher– Olivia McGibbon and Abi Wilburn
