Spring 2022

Let’s put on our capes and discover our superpowers as we search for an answer to the question, ‘What is a superhero?’

This half term, we’ll describe our favourite superheroes, create fact files, read a range of comic books and write our own. Learning about real-life heroes from organisations such as the RNLI and from the past, including Florence Nightingale, Elizabeth Fry and David Livingstone, will allow us to appreciate human bravery. As part of this project, we’ll explore our senses of smell, touch, taste, hearing and sight and investigate different foods. We’ll also test our superpowers by climbing, running, jumping and moving to music. There’ll be opportunities for us to create our own Superhero Adventure stories and superhero works of art.

 

What can you do to help your child prepare for their project?

Superheroes are fantastic! Why don’t you visit the ‘Featured characters’ page on the Marvel website and read about famous superheroes together? You could also work collaboratively to invent a superhero. Draw a picture, make a costume or write a story together featuring the new superhero. Alternatively, read a children’s comic together. Talk about the characters and how they behave. Are any of them superheroes?

Autumn 2021

Left, right, left, right, here comes the marching band!

This half term, we’ll be stepping in time to the beat and learning all about music. We’ll listen to a music ensemble, identify pulse, rhythm and pitch, and move in time to the music. Leading and following instructions will help us make percussion instruments and we’ll also design our own. We’ll learn nursery rhymes including The Grand Old Duke of York and read the story of The Steadfast Tin Soldier.

Our bodies will turn into instruments as we try to master the art of body percussion. We’ll learn lots of new songs and write lyrics and tunes of our own. We’ll listen carefully to different sounds outdoors, test our sense of hearing and find out how far different sounds can travel.

Key Dates

 

Everyday-Please make sure you have reading books, diaries and water bottles in school. 

 

Wednesday- PE and French

Thursday- Karate

Friday-Spellings and Times tables

 

Please make sure children have their appropriate PE kits in school at the start of the week. We ask that you provide outdoor trainers for activities on the field.

**PE lessons will be both in the hall and outdoors, where possible. With colder months approaching we recommend layers for those chilly days. **

HOMEWORK

Our Class Target is to aim for all the children to read at least 3-5 times a week, practice their spelling and Sumdog Math practice appropriate to their age group. On occasion, I may ask for children to complete a numeracy or literacy assignment, this will be communicated through Class Dojo. 

 

 

Take a look at our list of home learning ideas below. Children will be awarded dojos for any project homework they bring in to share with the class. 

Reading

Our Reading Champions encourages children to read for pleasure. In addition to our DEAR time in the classroom, children are asked to read at least 3-5 times a week at home. Reading diaries will be checked on a Friday. They have the added incentive of earning 2 dojos for reading more than 3 times and 3 dojos for reading more than 5 times a week. Special award stickers will be given when children have read 10, 30 or 50 books! 

Big thank you to all our parents for supporting your child to read at home. 

Math Key Skills 

Sumdog hits Rampton!

Engaging game based learning that keeps pupils interested.

We believe that tables fluency can be an essential step towards both confidence and ability. Sumdog makes it easy for children to work on these tables while playing their favourite Sumdog games. When your children first use Sumdog they will automatically take a diagnostic test to place them at the right level. Their usernames and passwords can be found in their reading diaries.

Sumdog will be used as our home learning tool, with children being assigned key math skills relevant to that weeks learning as home work. We ask that they log in at least 3 times a week and dojos will be awarded to those completing their work.
