The children came back to school this week to an invasion of Superheroes! Mrs Rhodes asked the children to help her to hunt down the Superheroes and tell her their names. The children have had a super try at writing labels for them all. We have Superhero headquarters in our role play areas this term and the children are enjoying dressing up and becoming their own Superheroes, inventing names and super powers. In Maths, we have been developing our knowledge of 2D and 3D shapes.
This week the children have had great fun inventing their own super hero passports. They have decided on their name, what they look like and what super power they have! We have been impressed with the children’s writing. We can really see the children starting to use the skills they have been developing in our Sounds Write sessions. The children have also been investigating the super powers of magnetism and freezing in their independent learning. They were very excited to help free the toys that had been frozen. In Maths, we have continued to develop our understanding of patterns we can see when looking at groups of spots up to 5.
This week in Robin and Wren class the children have been investigating materials that would make a great cape for a Superhero. We looked at a range of materials and discussed whether it would be good for a cape. The children decided paper would not work in the rain, foil would break too easily and plastic would be too noisy, they wouldn’t be able to creep up on baddies! The children decided that a light material would work best as it would fly behind them. In English, we have been finishing our Superhero passports thinking about what they would wear and in Maths we have been learning one more than.
