We have read the story, Eliot Midnight Superhero!

We been using expanded noun phrases to describe Eliot and we have been learning how to write a character description! We learnt a new text map to help us and then we innovated the text map to include our own character and expanded noun phrases.

Who can share some of there expanded noun phrases here?

Don’t forget, expanded noun phrases contain: adjective, adjective noun  (curly, red hair or large, circular glasses.)

We have had a really exciting start to our superhero topic! The evil Green Shadow stole our lunches and we had to complete a series of team challenges to defeat him! We had a fantastic time!

We then completed a comic strip about our adventures!

In the afternoon we tested our ‘super senses,’ we tasted, smelled, felt, looked at and heard various things, most people preferred the sweet taste of marshmallows and the smell of mint toothpaste.

What did you enjoy about the day?

What was you favourite thing we tasted and smelt?

Maths Homework

For the first Maths 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!


Enjoy creating your games, I cant wait to see what you come up with!
