Our topic this term is ‘What makes a hero?’ We started the topic by thinking about superheroes that we have heard of and we read the story Traction Man and Supertato. We created our own superheroes and created our own comic. We explored the use of adjectives and adverbs and used these when writing our own story about vegetable superheroes.
Even though the weather has not always been great, we managed to get into the Forest School area. We identified leaves and talked about the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees. We have an abundance of wildlife in our school and the children are very brave at catching and holding grasshoppers, woodlice, spiders, worms, ladybirds and even a butterfly. Mr W taught us about fire safety and we used the fire to cook stick bread. It was delicious.
We know that there are real life heroes and we were lucky enough to be able to visit the fire station and the lifeboat station. The children loved seeing all of the equipment, they were able to test one of the hoses and we even climbed aboard the lifeboat. They were so excited and they asked them lots of questions.
