Faster Higher Stronger 


This term, we will explore the theme of "Faster Higher Stronger" which focuses on the Olympics, inspirational people, healthy living, and trying something new. The first half term will focus on 'Superheroes' - looking at what makes people special, learning about this in our RVE work through the life of Abraham and Moses as well as inspirational people such as Tori James. Our Science work will focus on the human body, looking at the skeleton and healthy living. 


The second half term will focus on the Olympics, culminating in our own cluster schools Olympic event at Y Bont Faen. During the topic we will also be writing stories and non-chronological reports in our literacy work and our numeracy work will concentrate on shape, measure and data handling. 


How to help at home.

-Daily reading at home will support your child's learning, talk about the story.  Here are some questions you could ask when you are reading together...

What do you think this story will be about? What might happen in the story?  Which part of the story is your favourite / least favourite? Why? • Would you change any part of the story? How? • Would you change any of the characters? How? • Which part of the story was the funniest, scariest, saddest, and happiest? Find some evidence in the text to support your opinion.  • What might happen next? • How do you think the story might end? • Who is your favourite character? Why? • Who is the character you like least? Why? • Find 2 sentences, which describe the setting.
