Summer 1


Welcome back. We hope that you had a wonderful Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine. It’s the first day back and the children looked fabulous in their bright clothes celebrating our risen Lord (please see the gallery attached for photographs of our beautiful worship in the sun).


Our topic this term is ‘What is a Superhero?’ Throughout this topic we will be exploring who or what a superhero is and challenging some of the stereotypes that we might have. Our main driver for this topic will be the book Supertato’ by Sue Hendra. We will use it to explore Spring time and growing, create our own superhero characters and writing our own superhero stories, healthy meals, and a range of arts and DT (including Andy Warhol inspired pop-art). To complement the superhero Supertato, we will also be learning about Rosa Parks and how she is considered a real life hero by many.  The topic web is available to download and has more details of what areas of the curriculum we will be covering throughout this topic.



Other Information

PE will be on a Friday morning, hopefully the weather will be nice enough for us to be outside so please ensure your child has suitable footwear.  We will also begin mile-a-day walks/jogs Monday – Thursday to ensure we are exercising and enjoying the outdoors.

Forest School sessions will resume on a Wednesday afternoon so children will need to bring suitable clothing and footwear. You may also want to consider insect repellent.

Wednesday 22nd May – We will have a superhero dress up day. Please don’t go out of your way making special costumes for this. Homemade t-shirts, capes and masks make wonderful costumes.
