The Rainbow Factory

Friday 20 April 2018

We had a great day out at the Rainbow Factory. When we arrived, we were greeted by three superheroes who told us their friend Willemina had been kidnapped by the Evil Eye. The superheroes needed our help to get their friend back home safely. We were sent to superhero training – we had to complete special tasks to become a superhero.

Throughout the day, we had to decipher cryptic messages to find a missing gem that had been stolen – along the way we tasted mice tea, tried on the Mad Hatter’s hat and showed how brave we were by putting our fingers in the wolf’s mouth!

We used our creative abilities to design a shield and draw a picture of a superhero. We had to decide what our special superhero power would be. We talked about how our special power could be something about us rather than something we do. We came up with ideas such as sharing, being a kind friend and helping others.


We also learnt how to use our shields. Defend, attack and protect!

The staff and volunteers who came on the trip were very proud of all the children. They all behaved brilliantly throughout the whole day.

The Foundation 2 team would like to say a huge thank you to the volunteers who helped support us. We really appreciate all of your help to make the trip possible.
