Superhero Dad by Timothy Knapman

What are your Dad's superpowers? 

This week in Nursery, we have been continuing our topic of superheroes and looking at the story Superhero Dad by Timothy Knapman. In the story, the boy listed all of his dad’s superpowers including making a super breakfast, telling super jokes and making a super roar when playing dinosaurs. The children then engaged in discussions about what the super powers are within their family. The children have been busy using and combining various resources to make cards for father’s day, and visited the father’s day shop.

In the nursery, the children have enjoyed making superhero masks and superhero capes where they have been talking about their superhero name, what their different superhero powers are and who their favourite superhero is. The children have also had to use their fine motor skills to use the tweezers to rescue the spiders from the web. We have also been mark making and using our phonics to write secret messages and captions for what the different superheroes might say.

We have also read the story ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf? By Amanda Enright to look at different times of the day and discussing, what we do in the morning, afternoon and at night-time. The children have then used this knowledge to create their own superhero timetable and engaged in meaningful conversations about their superhero timetables.
