Reception Class Week 11

This week Reception have joined the rest of the school in focussing on the story Traction Man by Mini Grey. The story is based around the heroic adventures of Traction Man, an action figure who thinks he is a superhero.

Throughout the week, the children helped to create our own ‘Superheroes Headquarters’. They set up lots of systems so that the class superheroes could be dispatched to an emergency situation within seconds! This included: taking the initial emergency telephone call, recording the information, pressing the emergency red button, sounding the alarm and communicating the essential information to the superheroes.

Many of the children made vital superhero equipment to aid rescue missions and others thought about what they would be like if they were a superhero and had special powers!

On Thursday we received some shocking news from Traction Man himself, in the form of a letter. He told us that he needed some help from the class superheroes. The Evil Pillows (Baddies in the story) had stolen our marbles and were coming back to take all of the class cars!

The children had to act fast! They drew plans showing how they were going to trap The Evil Pillows, made magic potions, looked for clues, made the traps and built hide outs, to lay in wait for the cushioned thieves.

We finished off the week with a visit to the art gallery. We enjoyed looking at the whole school’s art work and finding our own!
