Superheroes Unit of Work - Comics in the Classroom

With Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Aquaman, the animated Spiderman and Disney's Incredibles 2 all hitting cinema screens this year, comic book fever is gripping the world. Use mrwatt1's lesson pack to heat up your classroom. Although it might seem strange to ditch Dickens for Marvel or Shakespeare for DC, there's more to these popular publications than meets the eye. Comic books and superhero films explore the culture of our time, just as great novelists delved into the social issues of theirs. This is a unit based on comic books. Detailed resource containing a range of writing activities: short story, informative, biography and comic strip. Contains a huge number of resources and detailed lesson plans. I have included a selection of powerpoint lesson presentations - but I also use a lot of film clips to highlight points, especially explaining character motivation etc. These resources have been recommended by TES several times over the years! "The country that gave us Spider-Man, Batman and the Incredible Hulk is still obsessed with superheroes - particularly in the classroom. One of the nation's favourite resources is this series of PowerPoints and worksheets designed to help pupils understand the genre while developing their own storytelling skills. Pupils analyse film clips and comic books, develop character profiles by creating top trumps cards and design a map of a fantasy city for a superhero to live in. They then create their own superhero, write their biography and develop a short story on the theme "The day I discovered I had superpowers"." Victoria Grace Walden - TES article

Role Models and Superheroes

Originally a ‘learn to learn/Citizenship’ lesson for a SEN low ability special needs class. Has been adapted slightly. It asks pupils to think about role models, characteristics, and what we should aspire to. I normally hand draw a ‘superhero’ body outline and ask pupils to use colours and design to reflect a villain side and a hero side - this way they have to consider colour connotations too!

Superheroes Assembly for Key Stage IQuick View

Superheroes Assembly for Key Stage I

Superheroes Assembly for Key Stage I Duration: Around 10 – 15 minutes depending on how many ‘superhero demonstrations’ there are. The first ‘speaking’ part of the assembly is around 5 minutes reading time. The rest of the assembly is down to the teacher in charge as explained in Production Notes. Cast: Written for cast of 30 but easily adaptable up or down. The cast comprises class teacher as narrator plus children 1 – 30. This assembly or class play is in roughly two parts - the first deals with the qualities of a superhero and how a superhero would change the world; the second is a demonstration of 'superpowers' by different 'superheroes'. It is very much a 'movable feast' - the children can make their own choices re: how they'd change the world; and likewise choose which superheroes they'd like to portray - they can even make up their own. I have thus provided a 'template' which can be adapted according to class numbers and 'members'. Sample Text: Narrator: Good morning and welcome to our assembly on Whole cast: (Together) Superheroes! Narrator: So, for the benefit of our audience, what makes a superhero? Or maybe I should ask the question, what makes a hero super? Child 1: Super powers, of course! Child 2: You can’t do much without them! Child 3: Especially against those horrible baddies! Narrator: So. Let me get this straight. Heroes are always good? Child 4: Right. They fight for what is good in the world Child 5: Against all that is bad! Narrator: That must take a lot of courage! Child 6: That’s why they’re superheroes! Child 7: Brave! Child 8: Strong! Child 9: And determined! Child 10: It’s not always easy being a superhero! Narrator: (To cast) So. If you had the powers of a superhero, what would you do to make the world a better place? Child 11: I would take food to everyone who was hungry. Child 12: I would give shelter to everyone without a home. Child 13: I would hug everyone who feels unloved. Child 14: I would drive around in a Ferrari! Narrator: (Snorting) Oh really! And how is that going to improve the world? Child 14: Well, it would certainly improve mine!


This is a comprehensive, effective and fun spelling programme, which covers a wide variety of spelling rules. The programme complements English Mastery as, rather than prompting the student to memorise words, each set of exercises promotes understanding of a spelling rule and gives many opportunities to put it into practice. The pdf prints out as 9 individual booklets, with the first 8 each having 3 sections (covering spelling conventions including soft ‘c’ and soft ‘g’, short vowel doubling, prefixes, suffixes etc) and the final booklet is for revision/testing. Each section takes about 15-20 minutes to complete making it ideal for a lesson starter or intervention during tutor time.
