Do YOU have courage?
We’ve been learning about Courage this half term so we began by thinking about what we could do at home and in school that was new or tricky and would be a winter challenge – like a new years resolution!
Mike and Adam from Church have brought us lots of ideas and helped us to reflect on who we want to be. We’ve learnt about Eddy the Eagle who was not scared to try new things – he showed lots of perseverance and courage because people said it would not be possible to ski and he eventually took part in the Olympic Games. He had to believe in himself. We found out about Andy Murry and considered how hard it must be to make decisions that effect your future life. We also talked about being courageous in love and being generous to those we care about as well as those who need our help – we can give hope to those in need.
Winston Churchill said, ‘Never, never, never give up. WE make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.’
Nelson Mandela said, ‘I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid but he who conquers that fear.’
