  • What the children will learn

Extra Activities

Perseverance Research

After your class has learnt about perseverance and what it means to truly overcome obstacles; split your class up into equal small teams and task each of them with researching someone in history who has shown perseverence.

This can be anyone: actor, politician, Olympic winner. Anyone!

Having the children complete their own research gives them time to think introspectively about themselves and maybe some of their own obstacles that they are facing.

Perseverance in Films

One of the best ways to visually show perseverance is through films and short videos.

Finding Nemo is, in my opinion, a fantastic example of someone showing unbreakable perseverance.

Is there perhaps some other films or short videos you can think of to show your class?

Additional Resources

Alongside all of these amazing resources, we also have some brand new, additional resources available which can be used to enhance your teaching even further!

Our stunning looking Display Focus provides you with the resources you need to make your well-being display the best it can be; including a wall display, character passports that are differentiated for EYFS/KS1 & Lower and Upper KS2, all of which relate to that week’s individual theme!

Along with all of these, there are large mindful colouring sheets featuring Wyeth and a set of differentiated quotes and statements all about believing and achieving.

Perfect for children to unleash their creativity!
