In Year 1, we have been working super hard all half term and today we became OFFICIAL SUPERHEROES!

We took part in many activities that tested out superhero strength.


From freeing our friend Bucky from behind the brick wall to helping Aquaman save the sea creatures from an ancient sea monster.

The children had so much fun taking part in our Superhero day and thank you parents/carers for providing the children with excellent costumes.
