Elm Wood Primary School

Welcome to Year 1 Class 3

Welcome to Year 1- Class 3 (some important information for the year).

The team in class 3 is:

Class teacher- Miss Childs

Class teaching assistant- Miss Mair, Mr Berry and Miss Hartley


Our topic this half term will be ‘Superheroes!’


KERPOW! Intergalactic greetings, young heroes. It’s time to rescue the planet from evil villains!

Who’s your favourite superhero? Spider Man? Wonder Woman? Maybe your heroes are ordinary people who 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! ZOOOM!
