In Nursery we are looking at people who help us and their different occupations. Moving onto looking at Superheroes real life and fantasy. 

We will explore who the superheroes are in our life? Why are they superheroes? We will look at ourselves, our families, superhero characters, superhero vehicles, the super people around us who help us, such as teachers, doctors,  police and fire fighters.

A great book about huge diggers and trucks.  The pictures attract attention and the text, is rhythmic with catchy rhymes, this book offers lots of good vocabulary that children love  joining in with. 

First time dentist 

What will happen? Will it hurt? Will you stay with me? Reading Dentist with your child is the perfect opportunity to talk about these questions, and many more! Young children’s lives are full of new experiences and these books help make them less scary. The simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage further dialogue between reader and child. Use these books as a starting point to talk to your child and help them to understand and prepare for these events, and to share any worries they may have.

Real superhero’s 

Some superheroes have capes and trusty sidekicks too, but how many of these superheroes have ever rescued you?

A heartwarming thank you to the essential workers who help us every day. From supermarket staff and firefighters to doctors and nurses, this charming picture book celebrates the brave, everyday heroes who keep our world turning through difficult times.

In maths we have been exploring 2D and 3D shapes and talking about their properties. We have printed with 3D shades, we have made ramps to see which 3D shapes roll. We have been on shape hunts and been singing all about shapes. 

Max

What does a Super hero do when they are not being ‘Super’? A funny story about being loved for who you are and not just what you can or cannot do.

It's not easy being the son of legendary superheroes Captain Lightning and Madam Thunderbolt. Max has a cape and a mask, but he doesn't fly. His parents can't understand it. It seems that Max is just an ordinary boy, until finally, to save a falling baby bird, Max discovers he can fly! He'll be a small hero, doing small deeds. "The world needs more of those," says his mum.
