Superhero text map

Posted in Uncategorized           8 Comments »

In class we have been reading Eliot Midnight Superhero!

We have started to learn a new text map! It is a character description of Eliot! Do you think you could retell it at home?



By day, Eliot is quiet, but when the clock strikes midnight Eliot is a superhero!

Eliot has a mass of curly, red hair and he wears large, circular glasses. On his back he wears an emerald, flowing cape that helps him fly through the midnight sky. Eliot’s superhero underpants are as green as grass and his snug t-shirt is as red as roses.

He courageously uses his super strength to rescue stranded, screaming sailors from the towering waves. When the hungry lions rampage through the dark, busy streets, they have no hope because of Eliot’s amazing hypnotic powers. He soon saves the day!

Being a Midnight superhero is very tiring. It doesn’t leave Eliot with much energy, so by day…Eliot is quiet.

Next term our new topic will be superheroes! Over half term we would like your child to enjoy learning about their favourite superhero ready to show in school. This could be presented in anyway, such as a poster, models or a fact file. Homework will be shared and celebrated across the year group and will be rewarded with gold tokens. Please could we have all projects in for Tuesday 31st October.

Don’t forget to embrace your inner superhero!

Maths Homework

For the first Math homework, we would like the children to create a game to help them learn and practise their number bonds to 10. Homework can be presented in any form, but it does need to be in the Maths learning logs (this can be a photograph). Don’t forget the number bond rap is on the class blog to help them!

Homework will be sent out weekly and collected in on a Wednesday. Children will be rewarded with a gold token for completion of weekly homework. Thank you!

In Year 1 we have had a very exciting start to the year! First we followed some mysterious footprints and found an egg. We used clues to help us find out what it was…a DINOSAUR! After this we had another WOW moment in our topic, we were very lucky to be visited by a paleontologist. He brought in different dinosaur models including a T-Rex, a pterodactyl and a brachiosaurus. We also got to look at different fossils and held a real fossilised dinosaur egg!

What was your favourite part of the day?
