Spring Term - Superheroes and Real-life Heroes

This term we will begin by exploring the different superheroes and their super powers! We will discover why and how each individual superhero helps people and saves the world! As the topic progresses we will then begin to relate this to real-life heroes. We will begin to understand how real-life heroes such as nurses, firefighters and the police help and save people too. During this topic the children will be able to come to school dressed as their favourite superhero! We will also receive a visit from a nurse from a hospital and get the opportunity to ask questions about this job.

Autumn Term - Turrets, Tiaras and Tales

In the autumn term we will be looking at castles and fairy tales. The children will learn about different traditional fairy tales and explore the different characters in each story. We have an exciting Fairy-tale day and each child can come to school dressed as their favourite character. The children will go on an exciting adventure, travelling back in time visiting Lewes Castle where they will learn about castle life.

Which fairy tale character is your favourite and why?
