Hello and welcome to Starfish class.

When we read, we like to ask questions about the text and predict what we think might happen next. Every day we have story time where we read an exciting book together.

Starfish class enjoy borrowing books from our school library, and also like to visit a local library where we take part in activities and share books and stories.


During the first half of the autumn term, we are going to be using the book Stone Age Boy as inspiration for our writing, which is linked to our study of the Stone Age in history.  During the second half of the autumn term, we will be using The Tin Forest, which is linked to our local study of the New Forest in geography. Click on the curriculum overview button above for further information.



In maths, we use concrete, pictorial and abstract representations to support our mathematical learning.


During the autumn term, we will be thinking about place value and the number system.


We like to join in with  lots of whole school activities where we can meet our friends from other classes. Here are some of the many things we take part in;

Our curriculum is bespoke to meet our individual needs; however, sometimes we join our friends in other classes to participate in lessons we particularly enjoy and excel at art, music, PE and science. 

 Social Trips in Starfish Class

 Starfish class enjoy a variety of trips and visits. Sometimes these are linked to the curriculum, but often we visit places where we can practise our social and practical skills.

We all chose pumpkins and paid for them in the lovely farm shop. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside for a drink and a snack, and even had time to visit the play park.

We visited a supermarket and bought ingredients to make cakes. We used our ingredients to make delicious fairy cakes covered in icing and interesting sprinkles, which we shared with parents at a drop in afternoon.
