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.
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.
A few Reminders:
· 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.
How to help at home:
· 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.
Here you will find the curriculum letters. These will provide you with a more detailed overview of each half term, including; ideas about how you can help your child at home useful information you may need to know as well as an overview of the key areas of learning.
