This half term we shall be learning all about:

  • Identifying parts of the body including the senses.
  • Directions and how to use a compass.
  • What it means to be kind and help others. What it means to be a 'superhero'.
  • 'Being me' is our Jigsaw Topic. 

If you would like to make a start on our topic, you could design your own vegetable superhero sidekick that can help Supertato! Which is your favourite vegetable? You could try drawing a picture of them. Remember to send in anything you do to: year1@dovecote.school
