Today we will explore what bravery is. First of all we will listen to the story 'Brave' by Stacey McAnulty.
Reading the story Brave by Stacy McAnulty
We will then make a note of all the ways the children in the story were brave. We will talk about how these relate to the school values.
We will then think about times when we are brave and complete sentences about being brave....I am brave because....(children could write these sentences or record them or just talk about them; they could draw a picture or take a phone being brave and explain why that picture shows them being brave).
We will then start thinking about a bravery challenge to complete this week (aiming to complete our act of bravery either on Friday or by Friday). We will write down our challenge tomorrow. We will talk about how being brave does not mean doing something risky that can cause harm to ourselves or others but can be something small that worries us and is about talking these worries and fears through and getting help to face them.
We will talk through the following cards - which one would take more courage? And why? (We will talk about how this is different for different people).
