Is it a bird, is it a plane? No, it’s Superman arriving for lessons!

Capes flew and superheroes swung into action as youngsters at one Sheffield school let their imaginations run wild.

Creative pupils at Meersbrook Bank Primary School pulled out all the stops to dress up for one of their most popular events in the academic calendar.

They swapped shirts and trousers for colourful costumes, dressing as characters such as Batman or Wonderman.

Some pupils even made up their own weird and wonderful crime-fighting saviours for the day.

Headteacher Rachel Edwards said: “There were all kinds of superheroes in the classroom that day – there seemed to be a lot of Spidermans in particular.

“Some pupils had even made up their own creations, one was dressed as a horse for their character. The children love dressing up and we are always impressed to see the effort that they go to.

“This is one of our most popular days at school every year.”

The event was held as part of the Big Pedal, where children ride their bikes to school, and dress up as superheroes to boost the cycling charity Sustrans.

It also tied in with creative activities held for World Book Week, which included parents and children reading together to achieve a book passport.
