Year 4 Support Superhero Charity Challenge

A fundraising team of babies from Baby Sensory North Leeds, have been summoning their super human powers during classes to raise money for baby charity Tommy’s.

Babies have been taking part in a superhero ‘Sensathon’, where babies and toddlers will be sponsored to triumph against a set of superhero challenges to fund vital research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage. 

Year 4 students have joined the superhero mission for Tommy’s baby charity!

The class have been so inspired by the Tommy's Superhero Sensathon that they have carried out a super-creative literacy project to design baby superheroes! 

Kate Johnson, Franchisee of North Leeds Baby Sensory, said: “This Superhero Sensathon is an enormously fun event that encourages parents and babies to tap into their inner Batman and raise funds for the research work Tommy’s pioneers into the causes and prevention of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature births. It is so great to have the support of Year 4 at Oakwood Primary Academy”.

Oakwood children were keen to get involved, so following on from a design project where students were tasked with creating baby superhero costumes, the Year 4 children then undertook writing an explanation text about a machine to make the costumes.

Miss Hodges, currently on maternity leave and a member of the baby sensory classes brought her lovely son Hugo in to model the children’s designs! He is unrecognisable as ‘Super Bean Baby’, with googles to help him see into the future, stripy tights that transform him into an underwater aqua baby and a magic bean wand and cape so that he can fly!

Hugo’s mum had selected her favourite parts from children’s designs to put together a collaborative costume from all of the children’s efforts.

Miss Hodges said: “So far the event has raised over £290, a marvellous outcome, and something for the children to be really proud of!”

Tommy’s had received the children’s designs and were so impressed by the amazing work that they sent each child a Tommy’s sticker and little bear.  However, Year 4 still wanted to do more, so class 10 have raised a wonderful £17 for the baby charity!

Fantastic work and great effort in helping others!
