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 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?

Do you know any superheroes?

Do you have any super powers?

In Literacy this half-term, the first story we are learning all about is... 


It's Miss Hale's favourite story. 


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


We looked at the characters in the story but Miss Hale didn't tell us who rescued the vegetables so we came up with some of our own ideas...



                                       "Super Broccoli"                                              "Super Potato"


We even thought about what our Superveg might do and what their superpower might be.



                                             "It can run fast to the bad guy."                                  "It can fly."




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


This week we have thought all about having a power to freeze things.



One day after dinner we came back into the classroom to find this letter!



How were we going to get them out????


We discussed some different ways and then the children experimented using lots of different tools, including salt and washing up liquid!




On Monday, we discovered a letter from Spiderman asking us to help him get his powers back by making him a magic potion!

We checked we had all the right ingredients and then followed the instructions very carefully. 


We helped Miss Hale follow the instructions very carefully and we watched closely to see what was happening after each step to see if anything had changed. When we had completed all the instructions... we noticed it was starting to fizz and foam!


The children even had a go at doing it themselves during their independent choosing time: 



They really enjoyed making their own potions and even mixing the powder paint to make different coloured potions too!

See if your child can tell you about what they did and you could try this at home too! :) 


We love to learn in a new dance in the owls class. The children love the 'Superheroes Unite' dance and love to sing along.

Look at us joining in!

On Tuesday 28th January we had a visitor into school.

You'll never guess what, it was a real-life superhero.


It was a...






He came in and told us all about what fire fighters do!

He told us that if we needed help we needed to ring



We learnt all about fire safety and that if we had fire on us we needed to...


Stop, Drop and Roll.

Here are some of the children demonstrating this:

On Tuesday 4th January we had some more visitors into school.

They were more real-life superheroes.


It was...


Police Officers.


One of them told us all about how they help to keep us safe and what a police officer does.

We had lots of questions to ask her!



The other one showed us some of the equipment they use and even brought the police van.

We had so much fun exploring and learning all about what police do!
