Autumn Term 2018

Super Humans

Our topic this half term is called Super Humans. It has a science theme based around the human body.

We will be finding out about:

  • What the main parts of the body are called
  • What the senses are and their uses
  • How the brain connects to other body parts
  • How to eat healthily and get enough exercise
  • How and why we use medicines
  • Why body hygiene is important

We recommend sharing some of the books below with your child:

  • Dr Suess- Ear book, Eye book, Nose book, Tooth book
  • Katie Daynes- Look inside your body
  • Any non fiction books about the human body

During English lesson, as part of our topic, we will be enjoying lots of super hero books. We also recommend these:

  • Nick Sharratt- Super Daisy
  • Mini Grey- Traction man
  • Lizzy Stewart- Juniper Jupiter

We highly recommend using your local library, it is free to join and you will find lots of quality books.


Activities to do with your child-

Researching the role of a health care professional

Involve children in the planning and preparation of healthy meals

Discuss the importance of keeping ourselves clean and the safe use of medicines

Using your senses to taste, smell and feel new things. E.g. feely bag full of different textures, smell pots and tasting new flavours from around the world.

Supertato to the rescue

We have been reading Supertato in class and we've been learning new vocabulary to describe heroes and villains. 

In class, Evil Pea stole our snacks and left a pear taped into our fruit bowl. We wrote some marvellous letters to Supertato asking for help.

Pop into class to find out more and read our letters.

All about Eyes

We have learned lots about our eyes in topic and how we see. We can discuss the pupil, iris and optic nerve and their functions.

Mrs White asked us 'Do nocturnal animals have bigger eyes?' Lots of us thought that they would because they need to catch prey in the dark. We thought that their eyes (especially the pupil) might be bigger to let in more light.

Poetry Day

We have learned The Garden Year by Sara Coleridge for National Poetry day. We performed it beautifully in assembly to the rest of the school.
