Superheroes

Superheroes

Our topic for this Spring term is superheroes!

We enjoyed our Stunning Start where we dressed up as superheroes and learned a new super skill - karate!

Literacy

We are reading a book called ‘Supertato’, by Sue Hendra. To start, we will write predictions about what might happen in the story.

 

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 exclamation marks and start to use ‘ed’ for the past tense. Finally we will retell the story of Supertato!

 

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

Today we found a crime scene in our classroom.... the evil pea had captured some vegetables and trapped them in our classroom! We had to help the police by describing the crime scene.

Maths

In Maths we are learning the months of the year and how to order them.

 

Our focus this half term is addition and subtraction. We will be learning our number bonds to 10 and learning to add by counting on. We will practise counting on and back from any given number to 50 and practise subtracting by counting back.

 

 

We have been working hard learning our number bonds to 10 and 20!

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!

 

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.
