Superhero Take Off!
What a start to the Spring Term! It all started with an exciting exploration morning; we arrived at school and there were some very strange things going on! Sticky spider webs hanging from the ceiling, a bat cave and den with lots of things to explore, lots of our small world characters and animals had been captured in ice and tied up with string. We HAD to help them! We became superheroes! We had to figure out how we could help all of these creates and people.
We have been learning about our school values to help us think about what makes a superhero. We came up with the words kind, friendly, helpful, strong, powerful and understanding. We have been learning about how our actions affect other people.
We've read books like...
We’re learning about real-life superheroes – doctors, nurses, builders, fire fighters, dentists etc… We are looking forward to meeting some of them and inviting them in to school – you might know one! If you do, let us know! We’d love to meet them!
Fire Station Visit
On Tuesday 29th January we visited the Fire Station in Winchcombe. We had such a great time! We learnt lots about the fire station, the uniform the fire fighters wear as well as all of the special jobs the fire fighters do. We had the chance to sit in the fire engine and then learnt about the hoses. We even had a go at spraying the hose ourselves!
We have been thinking about the sorts of super powers we would have if we could choose them. We dressed up in superhero masks and superhero capes and role-played a rescue mission. The children thought about how they could show the school values in their role-play and enjoyed talking about their super powers.
We have been practising our segmenting and blending (sounding out)
e.g. b-oo-t-s and h-a-t
We wrote a list of things a superhero might need or want to help them do their jobs. We came up with the words cape, mask, boots, vehicle, costume, uniform, outfit. Everyone is trying really hard to do their school writing.
