Superheroes take over Chester Park schools for Comic Con week

THERE were superheroes everywhere you looked when the children of Chester Park Federation took part in their annual Comic Con week.

But the week of activities related to comics and superheroes across both the infant and junior schools was about much more than just dressing up.

Junior school children were able to channel their inner Hawkeye with archery activities, and also scale a high climbing wall like Spiderman.

Activities were linked to all areas of learning, including a chance for children to create and design their own superheroes.

Head teacher Mike McNama said: "It was lovely to see parents and carers back in school this year, viewing the fun displays of Comic Con work and sharing the dynamic experience with their children. 

"Each year group's contribution showcased what they had been learning in class.

"The week ended with children and adults across the federation dressing up as their favourite superhero.

"We always enjoy holding this week as it brings the families and school community together and adds a spark to children’s learning at the start of the year."

Chester Park is holding an open day on October 13. For more details visit the school's website
