We are providing schools with Super heroes resources, follow our social media. You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram @wow_superheroes to get weekly help with resources for children. Adults can join in on the fun too!
We recently had the pleasure of being joined by Author Darren Chetty on a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminar about increasing diversity and representaion in children's literature and classrooms, helping to allow children to see themselves in the books they read. Check out Alice Bunker-Whitney's blog on the session and the importance of representation in the classrooms here.
Superheroes stand up for what is right and change the world for the better, with this WoW literacy project doing just that!
The project aims to;
- Increase children’s creativity, confidence and resilience
- Help encourage positive attitude’s to engagement and learning
- Encourage a child-centred approach to English and writing
- Give teachers the tools to develop their own creative practice in the classroom.
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.
