Each week we look at a different topic linked to Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design. We looked at floating and sinking, materials, growing, and using colour for a purpose. In Literacy, we watched a video clip of Banana Man, acted out the scene and took photos. We then wrote speech bubbles to link with what they would have been saying in the photo.
We made our own superhero identities by looking at different superhero names, powers and costumes and then came up with our own ones. We then created our own superhero profile. On Tuesday 27th January we had superhero day. We dressed up in different superhero costumes and completed a range of super missions within the Reception classes. Spiderman came to visit us and we had our photo taken with him. For our Enterprise Market our parents were able to buy our photos with Spiderman and take them home.
On Friday, we had our superhero assembly. We got to show our parents the lovely work we have done. At the end we sang a superhero song that we had learnt during the week; we all sang beautifully.
This week we are introducing ‘Take one Picture’. We are looking at the painting ‘Mr and Mrs Andrews’, and discussing what is missing from the picture as well as what we would expect to see. This will link in with our topic of farm animals next term.
