Block B - My Super Family

Who are the superheroes in your life? Why are they superheroes? Are you a superhero and why? This is a topic that focuses on the hero in all of us; a fun topic that focuses on ourselves, our families, superhero animals, superhero vehicles, the people around us who help us such as teachers, doctors, religious leaders, police and fire fighters.

Focus on the key members of your family and what makes them your superheroes; draw, interview, paint and celebrate their special talents, qualities and what they do for you. Have a special art exhibition with an opening ceremony and invite your special people.

The Topic Overview outlines the outcomes and objectives of the whole topic, with more specific detail, including resources lists, provided in the Block Overview.

This Topic is written for Reception. If you want to use this Topic for a different Key Stage, you will need to consider how to adapt the outcomes, content, delivery methods, resources and differentiation, as well as the relevant National Curriculum objectives.
