    Looks like you have it all covered! other ideas could include:
    The children coud
    design their own superhero, labelling features and powers reasoning behind their powers,
    making their own comic strip around their own story line,

    Look at the following web pages for some more ideas

  2. I started this topic by dressing up as a superhero and asking another teacher to dress up as a villain. The children were in the classroom with the TA when suddenly a villain entered the classroom and 'stole' the 'Golden Time' box. I appeared fairly promptly to save the day. The children loved it and it turned into a bit of a panto! From this they created a comic strip. The TA took photos for us to use as part of the comic strip.
    I found a really useful book 'My Mum has X-Ray Vision' by Alison McAllister which has Agent Milo's Superhero Evidence Report. This is basically a superhero character portrait which is a good model to help the children generate ideas. I also found the following books useful:
    - Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero, Superhero ABC, Super Daisy and the Peril of Planet Pea, Captain Invincible and the Space Shapes (link to maths).
    In art, we drew cartoon characters.

    If the children were to create their own superhero then I found 'My Mum has X-Ray Vision' by Alison McAllister really useful. It has Agent Milo's Superhero Evidence report which is a superhero character portrait and can be used to help the children generate ideas.
    Other books I found useful were Superhero ABC, Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero, Super Daisy. Captain Invicible and the Space Shapes (maths link).
