There seems to be so much emphasis on superheroes with super, out of the ordinary powers, that sometimes regular human beings who aren't able to fly or catch villains with their laser beam eyes seem boring! How about doing a session on real people who are in their own way, super heroes!
What are the qualities of a super hero?
Talk about real people who have these qualities. See what the children come up with. (Doctor, paramedic, fireman).
Visit a surgery. Have a chat about what tools a doctor uses. Are there any at your setting you can do some role play with? Or perhaps set up a home corner like a doctor's waiting room and surgery. Can you take a role each and be the receptionist, nurse and doctor.
Look at a hospital on line or some images of hospitals and ambulances in books at the library. Set up an accident: Teddy has fallen off a bench! He needs to get to the Teddy and Dolly hospital. Carry him in a special pram or box to the hospital and act out what might happen.
Chat about what the firemen wear - their protective clothing etc. Talk about what they do (rescue people, save houses from burning and help with road accidents). Also take a look at what they might use (water hoses, ladders etc). See if your local fire station will permit a visit. Take the children down to see the fire engines and meet a real fireman.
