Autumn 1 - Heroes
This term, Year 1/2 will be working on our topic ‘Heroes’. During this topic, we will be learning about two great explorers in history - Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. We will develop our historical knowledge by learning about ways of life from different time periods and comparing these to our lives today. As scientists, we will be learning about the basic parts of our bodies and the five senses. In English, we will be using the book ‘Juniper Jupiter’ to inspire our persuasive letters and we will be exploring comic book texts to inspire our adventure story writing. To celebrate the end of our topic we will be holding a ‘Superhero Day’ where the children will be invited to come to school dressed as a superhero and to undertake exciting tasks and missions throughout the day.
