Superheroes in the Big City - Autumn 1 

During the first half of the Autumn term we learnt about Superheroes, both real and made up. First we learnt about real-life heroes, such as doctors, firemen, policemen and nurses. We learnt about what they do to help people in the community. 

Then we read the story 'Supertato' and wrote character descriptions. We learnt about adjectives and how to write descriptive sentences/

 Here are a few examples of what we wrote...

"Supertato has a red mask. He is wearing a black soft cape."

"Supertato has rough skin."

"Evil Pea is bright green and small."


In Maths we learnt all about numbers. We used practical resources like numicon, cubes and counting bears to help us make numbers. 

We learnt how to write and represent numbers 1-20, how to find 1 more and 1 less, greater than and less than and also finding tens and ones in a number. 

 Sparkling Start in Autumn 1  2021

Our Sparkling start for the 'Superheroes in the Big City' was based all on real life superheroes! Children were invited to dress up as their favourite superhero. We spent the day discussing and writing what out superpowers are, creating a superhero shield and even met a real-life hero!  We had the opportunity to meet a paramedic. We asked him lots of questions. Such as:

"Who drives the ambulance?"

"How fast can you go?"

"How many people have you saved?"
