What are we learning this term?


Term 1


In Term 1 our topic is called 'superheroes'! 


Kerpow! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It's time to rescue the planet from the evil villains! Who's your favourite superhero? Spider-Man? Wonder woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who've achieved great things. Or is it those people who saves lives in our emergency services that you admire most?


In English, we will be reading a story called 'Traction Man'. We'll be following the adventures of Traction man, seeing how he defeats the bad guys and saves the damsels in distress.


In Science we will be learning to identify, draw and name different parts of the body as well as linking them to our senses. What do we use to help us hear? What do we use to help us see? Taste? Feel?


In History we will learn about the fantastic heroine Rosa Parks and understanding her important role within history.

How do we reward children in Bluebell Class?


We believe in positive praise and always seek opportunities to reward the children. The children start the day on the “sunflower” and if they do something special they are rewarded by being put onto the “honey pot”. They then receive a sticker and share their good work with the class.
