Summer 1

The children are already very excited about this half
term’s 'Superheroes'topic where each week we will look at a different Superhero who is named after and links to a different force.


The children will have lots of opportunities to explore different forces and find things out for themselves; they will also make a range of constructions and pictures relating to Superheroes and forces.


In Literacy we are working on the story ‘The Jolly Postman’. This story will bring literacy to life as the children will have lots of opportunities to experience real life activities and will also go on a postman trail. They will explore different stories relating to the characters from the book.


In Maths we will cover several different areas and some of our learning will link to our story The Jolly Postman. We will be visiting a Post Office role play area to compare the sizes and weights of parcels and we will use real coins to buy things such as stamps and envelopes.
