Are you a KPNS Superhero?

It has been a tricky year for the children starting their education within the Foundation Unit.


As a result, we have decided to explore the topic of “Superheroes” this half term. A major focus, responding to experiences the children have had recently, will be to concentrate on PSED skills (Personal, Social and Emotional Development) We will be learning how Superheroes look after each other and have special superpowers to help solve problems.


Meet our KPNS Superheroes who will be guiding the children through their activities

We will also be having a big focus on Sport and Physical Development

Let’s jump for joy! How high can I jump? How fast can I run? How far can I throw? 

If I can't jump, what other physical activity can I do really well?


It’s time to find out more about sport, movement and physical activity. 

Our BIG QUESTIONS will be about
• different types of sport
• different ways of moving
• healthy and unhealthy foods
• being fit and healthy


We’ll be exploring different ways to move around. We will investigate if different types of balls, float or sink when in water. We’ll also observe, handle and draw a range of sports equipment, and learn how to identify which foods are healthy and unhealthy. Keeping active, we’ll join in with actions to traditional nursery rhymes, practise balancing along sports equipment, take part in keep fit sessions and join in with dancing from a range of genres and countries. In literacy, we’ll retell the story of The Hare and the Tortoise and describe our actions using simple and complex sentences. Using our maths skills, we’ll find out how high and how far we can jump by using standard and non-standard measures. We’ll also work together as a team to organise and take part in a sports challenge. 


Help your child prepare for their project
Sport is super! Why not get those outdoor toys out of the shed and kick, bounce and slide the afternoon away together? You could make predictions about how high you both can jump and how fast you both can run, and put them to the test. When you’re finished being active, why not research how fast certain animals are and how high they can jump. Can you out-jump a kangaroo?
