Hi Everyone! Welcome to my weekly challenge. 

This week we are looking at SUPERHEROES!

Over lockdown, who has been your superhero? Perhaps it's your parents for looking after you and teaching you. Maybe it's a neighbour or friend who went shopping for your family or shared something with you. It could be a grandparent or family friend who has been zooming with you. Maybe take a few minutes to write them a letter to say thank you.

I'd like you to design a superhero and think what special powers they could have. What clothes might they wear? Where do they live? What would they do to be a hero?

 

There are a selection of materials below linked to superheroes that you might want to try too. 

 

Have fun!
