Superhero Me!


For the first few weeks of Year 1, we have been all getting to know each other, and we have been thinking about how we are all different and all 'Superheroes'! We have also been 'Busy Bees', exploring ways in which we can be super in the classroom, outside and all around Kidgate.


Alongside other activties, we have been busy exploring independent challenges. We have been writing superhero messages, acting and fixing superheros in our Doctor's Surgery and creating lego Superhero lairs. Here are a few pictures to share with you.

Exploring our Year 1 Outdoor Environment


As part of settling into Year 1, we have been using our outdoor enviroment. We have been washing cars, making 'Superhero' strengthing potions, celebrating each other's performances on our starry stage and using the chalk to create patterns and pictures on the playground. 

Planning and decorating our 'Busy Beehive'


We have been 'Busy Bees' developing our Busy Beehive in Year 1. We are so impressed with the bees that the children have all created at home over the Summer - we have loved sharing these! Well done everyone! We have been creating some more bees at school too.
