1st Class Superheroes to the Rescue!

April 24th, 2020

I must be the luckiest 1st Class teacher in Ireland to have some amazing superheroes in my class! These superheroes are not just any superheroes. Their special powers range from super speed, fire resistant, invisibility, super strength and bullet proof! Some even have healing powers, can create ice paths and can fight against the Corona Virus! Their names range from IceMan, Hulk, D.P., Super-T,  Daisy, Maxtam, Ironman,  Super Nurse, Lockdown Man, Super Pop. We even have a super pooch called Buddy Holly!

You can check out the amazing Superhero work below. I think it is safe to say we will be kept quite safe by St. Tola’s 1st Class! Well done everyone and thank you for sending me your work!
