IS it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the mini superheroes from Grange Primary School!
The ecstatic youngsters – and their equally excited teachers – from the school in Owton Manor Lane, Hartlepool, donned their favourite fictional hero outfits.
The five and six-year-olds made the school look like a superhero training camp for the day with spectacular outfits including Wonderwoman, Spiderman, Batman, Power Rangers, Iron Man, Captain America, Cat Girls and Super Girls.
Even class teachers Victoria Spence and Rachael Thorez, who jointly organised the fun day, got into the swing and joined their pupils in the fancy-dress extravaganza.
The pair wanted to hold the colourful, but educational day to coincide with a superhero topic the kids are concentrating on in class, taking in aspects of literacy, science and maths.
Miss Spence said: “We had a superhero day because it’s our topic for this half-term.
“We did it so the children could experience being a superhero for the day.
“We had Spiderman come in and the children got to chat to him about his superhero powers, they loved it!
“We are going to be using the experience of the day going to use it for cross-curricular purposes including writing fantasy stories for literacy, PE based activities and science as well to do with the human body and the five senses that we have.”
She added: “Myself and Rachel came as Bat Girls, and we had a great time too.
“The kids absolutely loved it and we had a great time too.
“They got a lot out of it and it will really influence their learning.
“It’s basically combining their education with a lot of fun.”
