Leicestershire Virtual School’s book “Superheroes!”
Leicestershire Virtual School’s book “Superheroes!”, an anthology of short stories written by Leicestershire’s children in care, has been published and is now available for purchase.
The book features stories written by 48 of Leicestershire’s children in care aged between 4 and 15 about existing well-known comic book characters plus some newly-created ones such as Cupcake Queen, Cat Kid and Michael Recycle.
The creation of this book is the most recent project from the Leicestershire Virtual School to address their children’s literacy skills. It follows on from the monthly book parcels sent to all primary age children that encourage and nurture reading skills. The creative writing project has given Leicestershire’s children in care the opportunity to set free their imagination, create new characters or place old favourites in new and often bizarre new situations. In doing so, the children have been able to develop their writing skills and see their stories in print, encouraging them to enjoy the creative writing process and view themselves as writers.
