Comic ReliefPosted: 23rd March 2021
Superheroes are looking older these days.
Children looked to modern day hero Captain Sir Tom Moore for their inspiration for this year’s Red Nose Day theme.
Pupils at Magna Carta Primary Academy dressed as their favourite superheroes as part of this year’s Comic Relief.
Pupils and parents were also asked to get involved in the Funny is Power theme by sharing their funniest jokes, with a collection of performances put together for an online comedy show – Magna Carta Does Stand-up.
Headteacher Marios Solomonides said: “Not all superheroes wear capes, so this was an opportunity for us to come to school dressed as the people we consider to be superheroes.
“The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating impact on many people, including the people and communities helped by Comic Relief funding. One of our curriculum drivers is to have a local, national and global perspective. This initiative will do just that.
“We used it as an opportunity to talk to pupils about the kinds of good causes Comic Relief supports. The added opportunity to get pupils to think about the real everyday superheroes in our communities made this even more poignant at this time.
“Laughter is also so important in the bad times as well as the good.”
The school raised a total of £325 on the day.
