Our Spring topic will be… Historical Heroes!
We all know some made up superheroes, like Batman and Wonder Woman, and they are truly amazing! These heroes can fly, swing through cities, or have super-human strength which helps them to save the world. Whilst they are great, there are other heroes that have lived throughout history. They might not have the special or magical powers like you have seen in films, but they do have something incredibly special about them, they have done something in their lifetime which has had a huge impact on others. Some of the heroes that we will learn about have become famous over time because of the way that their work has influenced the way that we live, or the things that we do, even today in 2023!
This will be an exciting topic for us in Year 2, as we will be able to research these individuals and learn all about why we remember them. We will also be able to learn more about different time periods and begin to develop our understanding of global and British history even further.
I would like you to consider what makes a hero, and think about your own heroes. Read the questions below and post your answers on the blog. I look forward to reading your ideas!
- Can you think of a historical hero that we might be learning about?
- What makes this person a hero and why do you think that we should be learning about them?
- Who do you think is a hero and why?
