KS3 Courageous Characters

This lesson is the first in a series of five sessions called ‘Journey of Discovery’ originally written to help pupils consider the key character strengths they might need while learning from home during lockdown. The five character virtues they explore are:-

  • courage
  • thankfulness
  • compassion
  • friendship
  • hope

This lesson supports KS3 children as they explore and develop the character virtue of courage. Pupils explore different types of courage, the stories of courageous people such as Anne Frank and Bethany Hamilton and the fictional characters Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter and Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. They reflect on the courageous people they know in their own community and consider how they can face their own fears and be more courageous in their everyday lives.
