Y5 and Y6 enjoyed a surprise when they welcomed a special guest to their assembly on Tuesday: Batman!

The caped crusader popped in to share a few words of wisdom and to wrap up the boys’ assembly on ‘People we admire’ and the attributes that make us feel respect for them.

Watched by Y5 in the Erskine May Hall and Y6 via Teams (the two year groups switch locations each week), Batman: the creation of Mr Affleck’s personal hero, DC Comic writer Bob Keane, was just one of many heroes discussed. Others included:

  • Sportsmen Alex Stewart, Andy Murray and Jos Buttler, who have all earned admiration for their talent, tenacity and humility.
  • Chadwick Boseman for his bravery – working hard despite his pain – and his kindness to all.
  • Jane Tomlinson who, despite having terminal cancer, ran the London Marathon and raised millions for charity.
  • Malala Yousafzai, who has stood up for the rights of girls around the world.
  • NHS workers who have worked hard to help others throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Parents, brothers and sisters also got a well-deserved mention!
