Superhero character writing

Superhero character writing

We designed our own characters, looking at recounts, character descriptions and then moved onto a simple story and made it into a comic strip. Our superheroes focused on the good qualities they could have, and what human values (love, peace, truth, non-violence and right conduct) they display.

Poetry bundle

Poetry bundle

I have bundled together six resources which I think will be useful for purposes of poetry analysis at this time of year. The Lulu poem and the messages resources would be particularly apt to study around Mother's Day and will provoke discussion about gender roles. The resources can be used throughout the year equally well, however.
