Year 1 have been making friends with some fantastic super heroes! To help us with our literacy work, the children have been introduced to Traction Man. This is a super hero that has some special powers but is in need of some help. Who better to assist than our own super hero Year 1 pupils!
We have been learning the story of Traction Man during our literacy lessons. Using role play, Year 1 then thought about how Traction Man might need some help on his various missions. We thought about the super powers that he has, and what possible powers we might be able to assist him with.
The fun really started when Year 1 went out on a couple of super hero missions with Traction Man around Michael Faraday School. We encountered a particularly unpleasant ogre in the school studio. Working with Traction Man, we made sure that good won over evil.
To thank Traction Man for all of his help, we have been writing out some invitations, asking if he would like to join Year 1 on our teddy bear’s picnic.
