Term 4

Our topic this term is who are you going to call?

 

Imagination is going to take the children to a faraway place – who will they call when someone is in trouble? Maybe they need a superhero to save the day or a Doctor to make them feel better. Children will also develop their understanding of the world around them, by finding out about a variety of people within the community who help other people.  

As we talk about the lives of the people around us and their roles in society, we begin to use pretend play to think beyond the ‘here and now’ and to understand another perspective. We also begin to realise that our actions have an effect on the world.

What an exciting start to the new term!

We have been enjoying our new focus story ‘SUPERTATO’, written by Sue Hendra. It was all going well until we had a newsflash sent to us, where we discovered the Evil Pea was on the loose! We became investigators and went on a hunt to find those ‘escapeas’. We recorded what we’d found in a tally.

Then we decided to make traps to capture them, but they escaped and are now WANTED, so beware for the EVIL PEAS!

We have enjoyed exploring our local community with a visit to the church and the shop.

At St Martin’s Church the reverand told us all about why a church is a special place to Christians and she let us look at the special things they have. We spotted lots of holy books, a font, big coluorful windows and so much more!

On our way to the shop we took a look at the local streets, recognising how they lead us to different parts of Dover. When we arrived, we found a very helpful shopkeeper who helped us buy some potatoes. Now we are ready for making some yummy mash!

We have researched how to make some yummy, scrummy, super mashed potato. We wrote some instructions so we didn’t forget and then followed them to mash our potatoes. They have made us feel ‘super strong’ and ‘super speedy’.
