On Thursday the 18th of October, Chestnut Class had a Superhero Day. We all dressed up for the event and really enjoyed coming into school as our favourite superhero characters. We were also treated to a superhero talk from an ex head teacher Simon Cushing. We were all engaged and enjoyed learning about different comic heroes, comic books and toys. A particular favourite was the life size Batman model, which Simon keeps in his living room!
Simon explained that as a child he disliked reading but this changed once he discovered comic books about Superheroes. Simon shared his large and varied comic collection with us;
we were fascinated to hear about the characters in Marvel and DC comics and how ideas for the back stories were often copied and repeated time and again.
Our whole day, especially Simon’s visit, has really inspired us to start some creative writing knowing that even DC and Marvel ‘magpie’ ideas from others! Simon has also kindly lent us a variety of books, toys and pictures to decorate our classroom and inspire creativity!
