In this short (2:36 min) video, from BBC Bitesize, Tommy goes on a mission to find new toys when he discovers his sister's bear is German. 

Find out how children played at home during the early 1900s and try to notice what the biggest differences are with today’s toys and games. Teddy bears had been a new craze in the early 1900s. The German toymaker Richard Steiff made the finest bears of all but when war broke out, German teddies became unthinkable. British toymakers rushed to make patriotic British bears instead. Watch the story of how Tommy goes on a mission to find new toys, when he discovers his sister's bear is German. Follow him and his neighbour, Isa, as they talk about what games they played and the toys that they could buy at the local toy shop. Eventually, Tommy is helped in his quest to buy a British teddy bear.

Most of the themed resources are cross-curricular although there are some which are specific to maths and English, creative writing. Collectively, the resources cover:  the most popular superheroes, their powers, their biographies, superhero presentations and booklists, real super heroes and much more besides. The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this tremendously interesting theme and any superhero classroom topic.
