If you were a superhero what would your special power be? (Spring 1)

If you were a superhero what would your special power be?


This half term we are going to be learning all about superheroes and what exactly superheroes are. 

Do they all wear a mask and a cape?

Are they all in movies and tv programmes?

What superheroes do we know already?

Do we have any special powers of our own?


The first story we are looking at this half term is... Supertato! 



We started by making predictions about what we thought might happen in the story by looking for clues in the pictures, then reading the title and finally reading the blurb.


At the beginning of the story something had been very unkind to these vegetables!



We knew it was something 'small, round and green' because this is what it says in the story. It had to be a pea!


Miss Pownall-Brown didn't tell us who saved them! So we came up with our own ideas: 




We also created our own Superveg and thought about what super powers they might have: 



                                                        "Superbroccoli"                                           "Superbroccoli" 



 "Supertomato. It can run. It can jump."     


                                                                     "Supertato and Superbroccoli. It can fly. It can run" 


In our project lessons, we have been thinking about what superheroes we already know and what super powers we would like to have. 


One day after lunch we came back to find this letter... 



How were we going to get it out? We discussed our ideas and thought that we could try to break it, put the ice in the sun and wait for it to melt or put hot water over it. We tried our ideas out but realised it was taking a long time for the ice to melt!




Miss Pownall-Brown said we could try putting some salt on the ice. We predicted whether we thought this would work or not. As we put the salt onto the ice we heard it start to crackle which made us very excited!

We observed what was happening and noticed the ice was melting quicker.
