Reading will be vital over this period so please keep reading daily.  This site has e-books that fit with our book band levels so you can select the appropriate book for you child to read and then activities to check their understanding and comprehension.  Also maths games on here any of the 3-5 year old games are suitable and most of the 5-7 year old games (we don’t do multiply in this way in Year 1 – although we do counting in 2s, 5s & 10s and grouping into those groups and start to introduce the x symbol).

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 describe our favourite superheroes, create fact files, read a range of comic books and write our own. Learning about real-life heroes from organisations such as the RNLI or Mountain Rescue and from the past, including Florence Griffith Joyner and Mary Seacole, will allow us to appreciate human bravery. As part of this project, we’ll explore our senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and sight and investigate different foods. There’ll be opportunities for us to create superhero works of art and to compose music using our super bodies.

Help your child prepare for their project
Superheroes are fantastic! Why don’t you visit the ‘Featured characters’ page on the Marvel website and read about famous superheroes together? You could also work collaboratively to invent a superhero. Draw a picture, make a costume or write a story together featuring the new superhero. Alternatively, read a children’s comic together. Talk about the characters and how they behave. Are any of them superheroes?
