Week beginning- 17th January 2020
We have had wonderful week in Stingray Class. The children have continued to learn all about real-life superheroes including Florence Nightingale. The children were fascinated by how she has changed nursing and how this has impacted our lives now. The children used the following words to describe the characteristics of a real-life superhero: brave, clever, thoughtful, determined, courageous, strong and many more!
In English, the children were focusing on re-telling the story of Superworm. The children made some wonderful story maps and were able to use actions to help them re-tell the story. All children tried their bets and I am so proud of all of them!
In Maths, we have been focusing on division and how we can use the sharing and grouping method to solve calculations. The children have worked really hard at this and have been using lots of wonderful maths vocabulary to explain their reasoning.
As a class, we have been reading Roald Dahl's 'Fantastic Mr Fox' ask your child all about it and see what they can tell you about this intriguing story.
Spring One - 'Superheroes'
Our first day back to school on Tuesday 7th January 2020 will be a VISION day! During this day we will explore our school vision and discover what 'making a difference... with each other' means to us and how we might demonstrate this.
We would like to start the topic in an exciting way and are therefore asking children to come in dressed as a superhero on Wednesday 8th January. Home made costumes will be fine!
Let’s put on our capes and discover our superpowers as we search for an answer to the question, ‘What is a superhero?’ This half term, we’ll work with the narrative 'Superworm', non-fiction 'How to be a superhero' and explore persuasive writing. We will learn about real-life heroes from history including Florence Nightingale. As part of this project, we’ll explore our senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and sight and investigate different foods. We’ll also test our superpowers by climbing, running, jumping and moving to music.
