Superheroes

Our topic for this Spring term is superheroes!

Literacy

This half term we are reading a traditional tale called 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. 

 

We will use drama, hot seating and role play to inspire the children's writing and to develop vocabulary. We will learn how to use question marks and exclamation marks and revisit the use of ‘ed’ for the past tense. Finally we will retell the whole story!

 

Our focus for this term is:

  • To leave spaces between words
  • Use a capital letter at the beginning of sentences
  • Use a full stop at the end of sentences
  • Capital letters for noun and pronoun, I
  • Write simple sentences
  • Use question marks and exclamation marks
  • Use and to join clauses and words

To start our Literacy topic, we were each given a bean. We had to guess what it was and what might happen to it before planting it! Our seed was a clue to the book we would be reading next. After looking at a selection of plant books, we made predictions about which book we would be reading in class... Jack and the Beanstalk!

Maths

In Maths we are learning about place value with numbers up to 50 using tens and ones equipment.

 

We are practising counting forwards and backwards in 1s, 10s, 5s and 2s. We will be learning 1 more and 1 less than any number up to 50 and using the language of greater than and smaller than to compare objects and numbers. We will be revisiting the symbols < > and = and ordering numbers.

 

 

 

Today we found a monster in our classroom! He had a message inside him asking for our help. He said he didn’t know how to make 2 digit numbers so we had to help him by using the tens and ones.

History

In History we will be learning about 'real life' superheroes: Florence Nightingale, Neil Armstrong and Rosa Parks. We will explore different types of evidence to find out about the past and learn about how these people have impacted on our lives today.

 

Science

We will be learning about plants and what they need to grow. We will become gardeners and plant our own bulbs and watch them grow!

 

Wood visit- We visited the woods close to school to explore what trees and plants we could find. We noticed that a lot of the trees had no leaves. We remembered that these  are called deciduous trees and that they loose their leaves in the winter! There were a few signs of buds and things starting to grow. We are going to visit the woods again in the summer to see how the woods change. See our photos below of the woods visit.

 

Music

In Music, we will be learning how to play the ukulele! This will be a 10 week project which will culminate in a concert which the parents will be invited to.

 

Art

We will be developing our sketching skills using Marvel Comics as our inspiration.

 

Design and Technology

We will design, create and evaluate our own superhero vehicles using wheels and axles to create mechanisms.

 

Geography

We will be working on our map skills to create and follow a map to the woods!

 

PE

As well as our weekly run, we will be doing Gymnastics on a Wednesday and Dance on a Friday.

 

RE

We will be learning about sacred places, in particular where Christians and Jewish people worship.

 

PSHE

We will learn the difference between right and wrong. We will learn about who to tell when things are not right; and that we don't always have to keep secrets. We will learn about bad and good touches, and to recognise and talk about feelings.

In ICT we used an algorithm to programme a BeeBot. We started on the superhero launch pad and we had to get to the superhero base!
