Watch the video on slide 2 about self-esteem.
Good character: Split the children into pairs and provide them with a print off of the outline of the body on slide 3. Ask children to write down or draw all the ways they show good character, e.g., saying thank you, smiling or helping others.
Super worm: Print off the super worm worksheet on slide 4. Divide children into small groups and ask them to write down what super worm can do, has got and what he is like. Show the examples answers on slide 5. If children have time, they can colour in the worm too.
Role play - helpers and heroes: Explain to the class that sometimes we need to help people and other times we may need help. Divide the class into small groups and give each group some props. Pupils must create a short role play about being a helper or a hero to someone. Ask each group to perform their role play to the class.
Pupil pledge – Print off slide 6 for each child and ask them and to complete a pledge using the good character words.
Reflection time: Ask pupils to think about 3 things they have learnt today and what they will do differently in the future.
