Starfish Class is for our Early Years children from the Reception and Nursery year groups.  They are taught by Mrs Popay and supported by Mrs Cotton.  Miss Rutter and Miss Kiernan also help out in the class.  Mrs Threlfall sometimes comes in to work with us too.
The class have Read Write Inc or Communication and Language activities and Big Maths each morning, and a range of other activities on offer daily. Our outside space is available, for those children that want to learn outside, daily.  Children are encouraged to be independent in their learning - whether it be using a hammer and nails in the woodwork area; making a cake in the cooking area; mixing their own paints in the creative area; or choosing which resources they want to use from the wide range available.
Children join the rest of school for Beach School on a Friday.  
Each week children are encouraged to complete their 'Rainbow Challenges', from a range of different areas of learning and are awarded certificates for doing so. 
Learning is recorded through the online learning journey system, Tapestry.  All parents have an account to see their child's learning at the touch of a button (or 2).  If you are struggling to access your Tapestry account please speak to a member of staff who can help you.
