Heroic efforts from pupils

SCHOOLCHILDREN donned capes and masks to bring their own superhero creations to life.

Year four pupils at Lowton Junior and Infant School dressed up after completing a project to improve their writing skills.

Stories on each of the characters will be sent to Lowton’s partner school, in Polhena, Sri Lanka, as part of continuing links with the south Asian country.

Year four teacher Joanne Makin, who organised the event, said: “The project was introduced to inspire the children to improve their writing.

“They created their own superhero stories and then had the chance to dress up in character.

“Some of the ideas were really impressive, like Mr Refrigerator who could shoot ice – they could be superheroes you see in the movies.”
