Our topic for the next half term is called "Electric Superheroes".
We will be looking at what makes a superhero, some of their super powers, and how we can recreate some of their "super powers" in the classroom. We will be rescuing Batman and Superman from the icy prisons that Mr Freeze has trapped them in by looking at the most effective ways to melt ice. We will be reading lots of stories about superheroes such as Traction Man, Super Eliot and Super Daisy. From these books we will write character descriptions and create comic strips.
As the "Electric" part of our topic we will look at sources of energy, how electricity gets to our homes and keeping safe around electricity. Children will be learning how to make simple circuits and identify why some circuits will not work.
In maths we will be concentrating on number facts, counting, reading 2 digit numbers, addition and subtraction.
It is important that reading books come into school everyday. We will read with your child twice a week in school and ask that you read at home with your child regularly. There suggested questions in the back of reading books that you can ask your child once the book has been read at home.
PE will be on a Thursday so it is important that your child has a PE kit in school until the end of the half term. Children should also keep wellies in school as we will be doing outdoor learning every Tuesday. It is anticipated that we will venture out in most types of weather so it is vital that they also have a suitable coat.
If you have any questions please feel free to approach us at the end of the school day.
