Starfish Newsletter - Spring Term 1

Happy New Year and welcome back Starfish Class. This term we have a brand new Cornerstones topic called ‘Road Trip USA’. The children will be going on an imaginary road trip across the good old US of A. Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, and exploring the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. They will be using their map skills to navigate their way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’ Children will learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room, making sure they ask the important questions ‘Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service?’ The class will also learn about the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions.


The children will continue to develop their reading and comprehension skills this term by exploring a range of genres and extending their ever growing vocabulary. We will be writing for different purpose including; Newspaper reports, recounts, explanations and instructions and creating fictional stories using the Mighty Writer board.


This term in Maths, the class will be solving problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts.


Thank you for your continued support. The Starfish team!
