Elm Class

Welcome to term 6 in Elm class.

Umbrella Theme: Superheroes

Class Themes: Moral ethics of good and bad behaviour choices.

Overview of Learning: KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet from the evil villains! Who’s your favourite superhero? Superman? Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who’ve achieved great things. Or is it those people who save lives in our emergency services that you admire most?

Superheroes have super senses. Use yours to identify mystery items by their smell, taste, sound and touch. What do true superheroes eat to keep their senses and special powers sharp?

Can we stop the dastardly plans of Professor Slime? He’s dropping his villainous instructions around town. WE must stop people following them, but can we make it in time? Is that phone box free? Please excuse me… I have to save the world! Zap! Whizz! Zoom!

Stunning Start: Dressing up day as a superhero/hero – complete tasks using your senses to identify what it is (these are your special powers!)

Fabulous Finish: Superhero mission to stop Professor Slime!
