More and Better
Superheroes: Words are our Power is now a pioneering four-year project (2019-22) funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation More and Better fund.
The next fantastic four years we are working with eight schools in Merseyside;
· Banks Road Primary School
· Blackmoor Park Primary School
· Broad Square Primary School
· Holy Cross Catholic Primary School
· Leamington Primary School
· Springwood Heath Primary School
· St Cleopas Church of England Primary School
· St Michaels and All Angels Catholic Primary School
WoW is embedded within the schools for a term a year for 3 years, with aims to;
· Increase children’s creativity, confidence and attitude’s and engagement to learning,
· Give teachers the tools to develop their own creative practice.
Superheroes: Words are our Power, embeds professional writers in residence, to work with key stage 2 across the school term. Putting creativity back into the classroom and allowing them to explore creative writing.
Alice from WoW works with year 5 for the whole term;
· Creating stories and comic strips on based on superheroes that reflect them and the world they live in.
· These stories are then published into a professional comic book, with each child receiving their own copy.
