Welcome to Miss Stell's Class

On this page you will be able to find pictures and information informing you of all of the exciting activities which we have been up to in class.

A few reminders:

  • PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that children have a full PE kit in school on this day and that earrings have been removed.
  • Each child has been given a reading book and blue home school diary. We ask that these are in school every day so that we can read with the children and change their book. We recommend that the children read at home for 10-15 minutes at least three times a week.
  • The children will receive homework on a Friday which must be returned by the following Thursday. The homework will always link to what the children have been learning that week.
  • On Tuesdays and Thursdays the children can bring in 10p to buy a slice of toast at playtime.
  • On Fridays the children can buy healthy snacks at playtime. We ask that they bring in no more than 50p per week. The children each have a tub where they can store their money in school if they have any left over for the following week.

 

An update on our topic

Something has landed!

The children have really enjoyed learning all about space. We have just finished reading our class story Beegu and the children have really enjoyed this. They have created some lovely pieces of writing from it and have really engaged with the text. Last week we were learning all about the moon and the children were amazed at some of the things which we found out. They really enjoyed making moon dough and moulding this.

A walk to Backhouse Park

 Backhouse Park

As part of our topic, we have been learning all about where we live. We went on a walk to backhouse park and discussed lots of features of our local area. The children really enjoyed this visit. Whilst we were there we noticed that some of the leaves were changing colour.

To Infinity and Beyond!

This half term our topic is all about space. We will be reading 'Beegu' and doing lots of fun activities including testing materials, making moon dough and investigating a spaceship crash. We will be comparing humans to aliens and writing a character description of an alien from our story. We will also be learning about Neil Armstrong and his mission to the moon.
