Next we go on a Superhero Adventure. We find out about what makes us ‘superheroes’; we study imaginary superheroes and design our own comics. We look at real life superheroes from the past and how they have affected our lives, including Florence Nightingale and Louis Braille. Click here to learn more about Florence Nightingale and to complete a fun quiz about her life story.
