We will post fun things we have been up to on the school website. We are going to be reading many different super hero books in school. If you don’t have any at home you could always use video clips of programmes your child might watch at home such as; paw patrol and PJ masks!

Activities to try at home:

  • Get creative and make your own super hero cape/mask/shield/power cuff/walkie talkie
  • Use super hero characters at home to re-enact a scene
  • Draw your own super hero and describe what they are wearing
  • If you could be a super hero, what power would you have and why?

Within maths we are also focussing on ordering numbers in sequence. Cut up 10 pieces of squared paper. Write out number 1-10, can your child put them into the correct order?
