Infant Class

Year 1 and year 2 make up our Infant Class. The class teachers are Miss Panter and Mrs Wittich.

Autumn Term 2020

Our topic this term is Super Heroes Don’t Always Wear Capes.

We have thought about the history in our own lives and how our lives have changed especially since we had to learn from home in March.  Covid-19 has changed our lives but we have helped each other to understand why we have had to make these changes.

We have heard about and met people who we think have been heroes during the pandemic.  People like shop workers, ambulance drivers, doctors, nurses and teachers.  We also think our parents have been heroes by teaching us at home as well as trying to work.  Mrs Wittich thinks we are heroes for showing such great resilience!

Book cover: Little Hen and the great WarNone of these people wear capes but they are still heroes.

We read the story of The Little Hen and the Great War. We met Arthur.  His life changed too when he travelled across the world from Australia to France leaving his family behind to fight in World War One.  We reflected and thought about how Arthur might feel about the changes and wrote home to the family.

 

Pupils pointing to globeWe wondered why the war was called the Great War.  We used globes and atlases to find the countries who took part.  We realised that nearly everyone in the world was effected by the war.  That answered our question.

We think Arthur was a hero without a cape.  What do you think?

 

 

We also brought in Harvest Boxes to be distributed to the local food banks.
