We walked a really long way but had so much fun! We walked down Abbey Road, along London Road passed the allotments, then across Folly Field and into Whitley Grove Woods. We definitely needed the wellington boots that our adults sent into school!

We had a WOW day to launch our topic on Superheroes. We came to school dressed as superheroes and explored a gallery of books and pictures which had been set up in our classroom. With our teacher, we created a word bank to describe the superheroes. We also explored how we could move our bodies like superheroes. Finally in our very busy day we went on a superhero hunt around school as all of the superheroes had escaped from our gallery! We wrote about our favourite superheroes when we got back from the hunt.
