This poster describes the career of an Air Ambulance Pilot in East Anglia – a real-life hero. It contains a range of high frequency words and some multi-syllable words. Competent, confident Year 1 readers will be able to read this text, and less able Year 1 readers will enjoy sharing it with adult support.
Shared learning and teaching
- Ask the children what their definition of a hero is. They may only think about superheroes, so encourage them to think of real-life heroes and ask them what makes that person a hero. Discuss the qualities of a real life hero – such as bravery, kindness, determination, generosity, setting a good example to others. Listen to each other’s opinions.
- Ask the children to choose a real-life hero or heroine and discuss as a pair or small group why that person is a hero. They should then report back to the rest of the class, giving good reasons to support their argument.
