Topic

CPSHE: LI – to recognise the actions of others and consider how these can influence our lives.

Click the link below and have a look at the news poster:

News Image

Now have a think about this key question: How can one person make a big difference?

Look at the poster image: Do you know who the person is in the poster? It is Captain Tom Moore, a 99-year-old war veteran from Bedfordshire who recently raised over £28 million for the NHS by completed 100 laps of his garden for his 100th birthday. Captain Tom began raising funds to thank NHS staff who helped him with treatment for cancer and a broken hip. He originally aimed to raise just £1000 but quickly passed his target!

Click the following link and read through the information found in the resource, all about Captain Tom Moore’s incredible achievement:

Captain Tom Moore Resource – April 2020

It’s really important for us to remember that sometimes, it’s not the biggest actions that can have the biggest impact and that all of the things that we do affect the world around us! Captain Tom didn’t even leave his garden but managed to raise a lot of money and raise the spirits of the nation! Can we think of anything we can do at the moment to help others?

Watch the useful video (found in the link below) which shows Captain Tom receiving a Pride of Britain Award:

Mother Teresa, a Catholic nun who dedicated her life to helping others said, “If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one.” Talk with someone at home about what you think she meant by this? Do you agree?

Reflection:

However small we think our actions are, we can all contribute to help make a positive difference to the world around us. At some point, to someone or something, our actions matter!

Challenge: In your work book, write a letter or thank you card and send it to someone who has made a difference in your local community; this could be for a teacher, family member or neighbour.

Have a think about a way you could make a difference to those around you and try to put it into action. Good luck!
