CHILDREN at St Mary and St John’s Primary School, North Luffenham, have been throwing themselves into their lessons after choosing a superheroes theme for the term.
The four and five year olds ditched their school uniforms in favour of special superhero costumes on Monday to embrace their topic.
Batman, Superman and Buzz Lightyear were among the characters roaming the school corridors.
The fancy dress day followed weeks of action-packed activities for the classmates including building junk model heroes, superhero dens, creating a comic strip and making superhero smoothies.
The children also took photos of themselves in superhero poses, downloaded them onto the school computers and designed their own superhero costumes.
Class teacher Louise Cook said: “The children have loved the superheroes topic. The fancy dress day really helped their confidence and encouraged them to do some super writing and drama.”
The children chose the theme themselves after completing a questionnaire about their hobbies and interests.
