Starfish embrace the new curriculum theme

In Starfish this week, we have been getting lots of learning done! We have started to plan our own stories in English and we had a go at writing a story opener sentence today, after planning our characters/settings and beginning/middle/end.

In Maths, we have been continuing to look at 2D shapes, trying to recall common 2D shape names as well as identifying them when they are rotated. Our shape theme also extended into Art, where the children made Indian block prints using 3D shapes!

In Science, we have looked at Animal Habitats and how animals can camouflage themselves to their environment. In Art, Starfish have been making Indian block prints using 3D shapes. We also had some Indian food on Tuesday afternoon, and the Starfish polished quite a lot of it off! For some of the children, this food was new to them so we are very proud of them for trying something new!
