This half term our topic was superheros. In Literacy our focus texts were Supertato and Superworm. During Supertato we found a crime scene so had to write a police report and send it to PC Declan. Once we found out the culprit was the Evil Pea we wrote wanted posters and eventually found the evil pea trapped in jelly! In Superworm we dug for treasure like he does in the story as well as sequencing key events from a book.
During topic work we became superheroes ourselves!!! We became Aquaman trapped in bubbles and also had to recuse our toy superheroes because they were trapped in ice.
On the final day of half term we had a superhero party which Batman came to and thanked us for all our hard work.
On the final day of spring term Mayfield school put on a musical extravaganza! Our performance was Lion King, every child in Lakes 6 got on the stage and were fantastic which is a huge achievement! https://www.whitehavennews.co.uk/news/17580527.children-show-off-their-talent-at-musical-show/
Our topic for next half term is Superheros.
I sent a letter home explaining 'WOW moments' after February half term, there is an extra copy below to print whenever you wish.
We would love to hear from you when you see your child doing something that makes you proud by sending completed cards into school.
As a class we will share these and learn about each other’s out of school experiences.
Thanks for your help, Ellie.
To finish off our 'Journeys' half term theme we went on a train ride, we even got to see some of the same things like cows, sheep and a tractor that we had been reading about in the, 'Train Ride' story in Literacy. Below are some photos of our exciting trip as well as some of our topic work.
Within our Literacy learning about the Naughty Bus, the main character gets up to lots of silly things like driving through beans, the garden, trying to brush his teeth and falling in the sink. Some of the work we have done around this included writing wanted posters for him after he went missing, rules for him to follow, communicating what sensory element we wanted to experience from the story and an advert for our bus wash. The children loved washing the bus and it's safe to say that ours is now nice and clean!
A big welcome to Lakes 6!
