This term our whole school theme is 'Heroes and Villains' and we have created a superhero world and hospital (real life heroes) for our immersive environment.
Literacy - In Literacy the children will create character profiles for the different superheroes, write a diary entry pretending to be Florence Nightingale, create a non-chronological report and write stories based on superheroes.
