Welcome to Class 2’s page:
Our project this term is all about heroes- both super and everyday heroes! We will be investigating if all super heroes have super powers. Over the past few months lots of people have been called heroes like doctors, nurses, postman, shop keepers and other key workers- we are going to discuss what makes these people heroes.
We will also be looking at lots of heroes in history. Who has been called a hero and why?
Some of the people we are going to be looking at will be: Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale, Nelson Mandela, Emmeline Pankhurst, Edmund Hillary and Shackleton. Can you think of any more heroes in history?
We are also going to look at what how we can be heroes. We will look at how to be kind and help others, how we can be role models.
In our hook days we will be turning ourselves into heroes by designing a super hero name, a fantastic cape and mysterious mask. They will also be taking part in some super hero training. As we have the year 1 phonics screening check this November we will be doing extra phonics sessions at home. If you would like any additional phonics resources to practise at home please find the links below to help support your children.
How Can You Help?
If you feel that you can help us at all with our project this term, please let us know. We would love to hear from you!
Take a trip to your local library and borrow some books about the heroes of history – Encyclopaedias are particularly great for finding out information.
