Supertato and Friends

 

 

 

 

We hope you have all had a restful and yet enjoyable half term.

 

It’s the final half term of the year already! We will be seeing the year out in style by learning about an all time favourite…...Superheroes! This topic lets children’s imaginations run wild. We start by learning about Supertato and the veggies he helps in the supermarket but as the term continues the children will get creative by making their own superheroes and get to decide what  superpowers they have. Once they have decided on their superheroes they will write their own superhero story where they get to decide what adventure they will go on.

Towards the end of the year we will be doing a lot of preparation for year 1 and talk about what their individual superpowers are i.e. writing, maths and other areas of the curriculum they feel they are good at. To finish the year we will host our own superhero day to celebrate a super first year at school.

We will be focusing on building independence in writing and encouraging children to write at least a sentence by themselves. Story writing will also be a focus with the children writing their own stories. This half term will be spent addressing any misconceptions they have around phonics to ensure all children are ready for year 1.

 

 

 

 

Mathematics Focus:

During our maths sessions we will be again increasing the level of independence children have over their learning. This half term will be spent going over areas of maths which children find tricky i.e. counting on and back when adding and subtracting, doubling, halving and sharing.

· Please make sure all school uniform is labelled.

· Bring a water bottle to school everyday.

· Now that the weather is getting warmer please ensure your child brings a sun hat and wears sun cream on those warmer days.

· Hear them read as often as possible and read lots of stories to them to support their story telling language.

· Encourage them to write simple sentences.

· Use numbers as often as you can i.e. count how many steps in the house.

Curriculum Letters

Fundamental British Values

At Baddow Hall Infant School we recognise our role in promoting fundamental British values.

 

 

In Foundation Stage examples of this are:

DEMOCRACY

Voting for class rules, making decisions as a group and expressing personal choices.

THE RULE OF LAW: 

Understanding the need for rules and laws and the consequences attached to breaking them. School and class rules. Rules for clubs and games.

INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY:

 Highlighting the right of freedom of speech and choice of activity within the rules set out above.

MUTUAL RESPECT AND TOLERANCE OF THOSE WITH OTHER FAITHS AND BELIEFS:

Understanding that we are all different and have different opinions and interests and that these differences need to be respected.  Expressing our opinions, needs and interests appropriately and with consideration of others'.

 

These values are modeled by all staff and are reinforced throughout the curriculum, in assemblies and at all times throughout the school day.
