Super Heroes!


Posted by Miss Ward | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on 20-10-2017

This week has been very exciting. Although we started off with a shock when Rosie and Raul were taken by the villain Romeo. We had a note and a letter with some challenges for us to complete. If we enough children completed the challenges, we should get Rosie and Raul back and a special certificate. The challenges this week have been: making buildings from Numicon, seeing if we can name the correct number, playing I Spy on a Superhero board using full sentences and playing superheroes on the small world table.

In Literacy and topic we have practiced talking in sentences. We have spoke about our favourite Superhero, discussed the different abilities they have and the equipment they use.

In Maths, we looked at Numicon and are beginning to look at them alongside our numbers. We have had to save the superhero by cracking the numicon code, or jumping on the numicon stones and unlocking the Numicon by matching with the correct key.

In Phonics, we have been continuing to practise our listening skills. We have looked at developing our awareness of sounds and rhythms. We sang songs such as “roly poly ever so slowly, roly poly faster” and making patterns and rhythms with our bodies. E.G clapping.

During choosing time, children have chosen from activities such as making numicon buildings, playing I Spy, making masks and capes and creating our own Superheroes.

Next week we will continue looking at body percussion. We will continue with our Superhero topic. In Maths we will look at 2D shapes around us and in pictures and using them to build.
