What a super fantastic week it has been. We began our new topic SUPERHEROES! We were super excited dressing up as our favourite superhero characters. As part of our superhero mission we completed an obstacle course, travelling around, under, over, and through balancing and climbing equipment in the superhero gym.
We have been looking at the names of superheroes and their special powers through books and video clips. We also had fun having our face painted with our favourite superhero characters. We made and add various gadgets using playdough and construction materials.
We were delighted and thankful to have Ms.Fee, Ms. Joaan and Year 5's joining and getting involved in our Entry point.
