Wingham Primary School

It’s all about the children

Term 1

Our topic this term is ‘What makes a hero?’ We started the topic by thinking about real life heroes and superheroes. We created our own superhero story with an evil villain! We loved the book “Supertato” and had a fabulous workshop where we got to make our own potato superhero!  We explored the use of adjectives and adverbs and used these when writing our own story about vegetable superheroes!

On Wednesday the 30th September, we had two Community Police Officers come and visit us to share what they do.  The class learnt all about what they wear and their role within our community.  The CPO’s commented after the session how impressed they were by the deep questions the children asked them. The CPO are clearly heroes to us!

We also had an amazing visit from Doctor Dan who talked to the class about his role as a real life hero and bought in lots of his equipment for the class to look at! They had great fun and learnt a lot.

Even though the weather has not always been great, we managed to get into the Forest School area. We have had great making our own superheroes using natural materials.  We also got to design our own superhero vegetables!   
We have also enjoyed going on a bug hunt and identifying all the little creatures we found in the forest school area.  
Dance workshop Hawthorn Class have spent the term learning an amazing superhero dance routine which can be seen.  So proud of their amazing dancing. 
Maths – place value .
In art we have been learning about pop art and the artist Roy Lichtenstein. We explored primary colours and we then created our own pop art images using collage. We are really proud of the work we have made.
