How many of your children love Superheroes? Yep mine too… Surprisingly it’s not just the boys either- my girls are just as excited about Superheroes as the boys.
I am a keen believer in allowing children to take the lead in their learning. I know that so many of our children love this topic and are excited about it that I need to embrace theirove too!
I began by researching lots of different bits and bobs. Here are the different things I have found useful- they are not all my ideas I will give acknowledgements where I can but some pics I have picked up along the way and I’m not sure where they are from!
A fantastic document I have read recently is this http://www.islington.gov.uk/publicrecords/library/education-and-skills/information/leaflets/2011-2012/%282012-03-03%29-engaging-boys-leaflet.pdf What do you think?
Block play is just fantastic isn’t it, I think these are awesome designs and love the fact the children have drawn and labelled their designs. It could be good to stick pics of super heros onto the blocks to encourage this more.
This is a great idea from @jessicawebb92 with using blocks and ping pong balls! Great for control
One of my lovely twitter friends has some great Superhero ideas on her page…
Here is the link to her webpage- do pop over to say hello!
Kids of all ages love puppets don’t they… I found these peg superheroes and thought they would be great not only for CL but to begin a little “talk for write” I can really see my lovely lot using the peg characters and then using some speech bubbles.
Just for fun… Here is another fab idea I found whilst googling…! These would make great end of term photos but also great talking and writing prompts
- Who are you saving?
- What super powers do you have?
- What would happen if you flew into the building?
- What will you say to the person you are helping?
How about having a Superhero dress up day? Children to make and write invitations!
Measuring superheroes using non standard measures.
Make a cape for a teddy… What makes the best material for a cape and why?
These areas are not mine… But I think they are amazing!
Great books for you book lists…
For those of you that like the look of supertato… I found these fab potato people that look great fun and again could encourage some great writing!
Great idea to freeze superheroes In ice
Making cuffs using kitchen rolls
Love this idea… Can you climb over and under the laser beams to save Teddy from the baddies?
