As part of our whole school topic ‘Harmony and Conflict’ – each week we will be learning about different ‘Heroes’ as a starting point for our learning in the classroom.

Our Hero of the Week…

This week we will be using the story of the superhero ‘Black Widow’ (Stan Lee) as a starting point for our learning in the classroom.

 Zdravstvuj! As part of our whole school celebrations of ‘European Languages Day,’ we’ll be learning all about the Black Widow’s homeland of Russia!

Why not join us this week as we take the children on their first beach trip to build some sand (St Basil’s Cathedral) castles in teams – details to follow shortly.

Get those gross motor skills warmed up! Just like ‘Black Widow,’ we’ll be using our body to move in different ways and learn the basic movements in a ‘Martial Art’ from a guest instructor!

 

Our Sounds of the Week…

This week we will be learning all about the sounds (i) and (n) and use them to help spot initial sounds (n = nest) as well as beginning to blend (t-i-n=tin) and segment (tin=t-i-n) different words.

To support your child at home, you can click on the ‘ABC Joined’ and ‘Jolly Songs’ app above. Both are strategies we use to help the children learn how to read and write their sounds.

[NB, you have to pay a small fee for the ‘ABC Joined’ app but it is fantastic value and well worth it]

 

 

In Maths this week…

Oh No! That villain Hydra has knocked down the Kremlin – can you help ‘Black Widow’ to use the Numicon resources to rebuild this majestic tower?
