What makes a Superhero?
I am excited for this new term focusing on what it actually is that makes a hero a hero? We will be thinking particularly about skills and qualities that could make us into heroes. English will be based around superhero texts such as Supertato, Superhero Daisy and Traction Man. The children will be writing their own superhero stories, creating comic strips and writing play scripts. They will also be meeting present day heroes: people who do jobs which take courage.
In science, the children will be learning about forces and we will be inviting you to join us for a DT afternoon where we are going to design and build a superhero vehicle, which will use a force to move. Watch out for a date to come. The children will also learn about famous scientists who can be classed as heroes due to what they have done for society and the planet. This will cover our history curriculum as well. In RE, we will find out about the life of Jesus and ask why, for Christians, he is seen as a superhero.
Finally, we will be investigating what we could do as a class to be heroic. We will think about how we can help others and change our world and will be planning and delivering a fundraising event.
An important part of this term will also involve the preparation of the children for the SATs which will be happening in the summer term. I hope that you will be able to support in this matter nearer the time, and we are planning an information meeting, which will hopefully answer any questions you might have and help you understand what is involved.
As usual, please message me on Class Dojo if you have any questions or problems or see me after school.
