Welcome to Mrs Dodsworth's class

Superheroes

What's coming up this term?

Welcome back everyone!  It is so nice to see everyone after the Summer holiday and the children have returned to school ready to work hard this term.  

This term we are looking forward to exploring our new topic which focuses on Superhereos.  Our enquiry question for this term is "What makes a super hero?"

Literacy

During the Autumn term we will be writing for a variety of purposes.

Whilst stududying Super heroes,  our narrative text will provide opportunities for the children to invent a new story based on the whole class text, Supertato by Sue Hendra. 

The children will also write character descriptions and descriptions of story settings.

Addition

Subtraction

Division

Whilst investigating fractions we will identify different fractions and find fractions of amounts and fractions of shapes.

Science

Our science topic for this term is The Human Body.

During this topic we will be naming and locating the parts of the human body, learning the importance of exercise, diet and good personal hygiene and describing the basic needs of humans as animals for survival.

During our scientific investigations we will be carrying out simple comparative tests, finding things out using secondary sources of information and asking questions about the results of our investigations.
