This half term we will be learning how to become superheroes and increase our learning powers so we can achieve more!
Our core texts this half term will be: Superhero Instruction Manual, How to Save a Superhero and Juniper Jupiter. We will be using these texts to help develop our writing skills including sentence structure, lists and letters. We also be learning how to write our own superhero themed poem.
In maths we will be focussing on embedding our place value knowledge and using this knowledge to sequence numerals, compare amounts and identify one more and one less than a given number.
Through our Science lessons we will be learning the names of the main body parts. We will discuss the differences and similarities between boys and girls and explore our five senses. We will learn about growing from old to young and how to keep ourselves healthy through food and exercise. We will also begin to explore the weather and throughout the year will monitor the seasonal changes.
In our Foundation lessons we will be creating superhero themed multimedia artwork, learning about position and direction and exploring how to programme a toy through a sequence of instructions.
