Topic ‘Superheroes’
Autumn 2018

Personal and Social development, Well-Being and Cultural Diversity (including Religious Education); Through circle time activities the children will continue to work on their self-awareness and self-esteem and how their actions have an effect on other people. The children will also talk about the things that they are good at and what they would like some support with. We will also be looking at real-life superheroes (Emergency Services)

RE; Our value this term is Thankfulness. We will discuss all the things that we are thankful for and use Bible stories to explore this value further. Where appropriate, children also join their mainstream class for Welsh lessons.
Language, Literacy and Communication Skills; Through our shared, topic related stories, the children will have the opportunity to develop and extend their oracy, reading and writing skills. This term there will be opportunities to explore writing in different forms such as, comic strips, narratives and novels. They will create wanted posters, invitations and have lots of opportunities to develop their oracy skills through role play activities. This is alongside activities that are aimed to develop the children’s basic literacy skills.
The children will also continue to participate in phonics sessions 4 times a week.
Mathematical Development; The children will be encouraged to practice some specific skills such as measuring and shape through our topic this term. Children will also continue to work on individual target areas in order to develop their basic numeracy skills.
Welsh Language Development; Through daily Helpwr Heddiw activities the children are developing their conversational skills and learning topic related vocabulary for the names of people who help us. We will work on consolidating some of their existing knowledge through Welsh themed games. Where appropriate, children also join their mainstream class for Welsh lessons.
Knowledge and Understanding of the World; Through our topic we will be look at where different superheroes come from. We will also look at forces and explore these through various practical activities.
Physical Development; The children will develop their co-ordination skills daily, following structured routines from the Activate DVD series. The children also take turns to go horse riding on Wednesday mornings. This term Year 3 and 4 children are also attending swimming sessions on Fridays. All children join their mainstream class to participate in PE lessons.

Please ensure your child has an appropriate kit to change into. Long hair must be tied back and jewellery removed – you may send plasters if your child struggles to remove earrings. I suggest that kits stay in school and will send them home every half-term to be washed. Please contact me if you are unsure which day your child does PE.
Snack; Milk is provided for all children in our class for those who wish to receive it. We also provide snack at a cost of 20p a day, however, if you do not want your child to have school snack then you may send in a healthy snack for them.
Book bags are sent home every Friday and we ask for them to be returned on a Monday or as soon as possible so that we can listen to and change books when needed.
