Star Class – EYFS

​​​​​​Welcome to Star Class!

Our topic this half term is 'Living and Growing'.

Here are lots of ideas for your topic homework...

We are learning to recognise, say and write our sounds. We can then use these to build and segment words and begin to read confidently.

We are learning to count, find groups of objects, talk about more and fewer and recognise numbers to 10. Through the summer term we find parts of whole numbers and count to 20 and beyond.

Here is the 'Welcome to Star Class' presentation.

Read Write Inc (RWI) and Phonics

Everyday in Star Class we learn a new letter sound following the RWI Scheme. The children learn how to form the letters correctly using a rhyme to help them. As the children learn more sounds we begin to orally segment and blend simple words as they start to become readers.


Pleases see the link below for further information.



Everyday the children will be learning to recognise and count number to 10. When the children are secure with these numbers we then progress to larger numbers. We develop mathematical language through practical activities and learn the value of number. We encourage the children to form their numbers correctly and provide lots of opportunities to practise. 


Please see below the school's number formation sheet.
