Visit from Torquay Fire Brigade

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Earlier this week, Starfish, Hermit Crabs and Sharks had a visit from some fire-fighters from the Fire Brigade from Torquay. They taught us how to be safe in and outside buildings, what to do in case of an emergency and which are the most important things to remember if we or someone around us is in danger.

We even got to try on some of the equipment they use to protect themselves when they are called on a fire, it was heavy and a bit smelly!

Race to the cone assault course

What an exciting PE lesson we are having today! Starfish have been split into 2 groups and each team member has to give it their best to reach the cone as quickly as they can.

We are keeping fit and healthy and building team games skills.

We hope you will have a lovely weekend, keeping active and reading whenever possible!

We have finally completed our Design and Technology project and we are proud to show you our creations. We hope that all the grown ups at home will ask Starfish children all sort of questions about cam mechanisms and how a moving toy works!


Our Wiggly Jiggly Wild Things are nearly moving!

We are very busy at the moment as we are finalising our Design and Technology project. We are working hard on the cam mechanisms that will allow our Wild Thing figures to move up and down and to rotate. Watch this space, our Wiggly Jiggly Wild Things are coming to life!

Starfish are working very hard on their reading, and it shows in the amazing progress so many of us have made already.

A big thank you to all those children who, with the help and supervision of their grown ups, have managed 5 or more weekly reads so far. Not only this contributes to our class reads, but it greatly helps each child to get better and speedier when answering comprehension questions, to learn new words and, overall, to become better readers!
