Shooting Stars class follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, ensuring that each individual child grows and develops through a play based learning environment that aims to meet their specific learning requirements. 
Each term within the Foundation Stage unit the class learns though a topic, our current topic is 'Under the Sea', to find out more please see the topic web opposite. 
As your children settles into the unit, we will encourage them to share their experiences with you and invite the children to share their passions with us. 
This term we have had lots of fun answering the question 'What can we find beyond the sky?' The children have become thoroughly absorbed in the topic and have come to school excited to find out more on a daily basis. The topic ended with a very successful Stargazing event where the children shared their knowledge with parents and sibling through a song.  Throughout the coming term we will continue to place a greater emphasis on our writing abilities, developing skills in sentence writing and reading. The class topic 'Under the Sea' hopes to excite the children in their learning and further develop their knowledge of the world in which they live.
