A More Than Gold approved title for 2012

A cross-curricular classroom and assembly resource for Key Stage 2 RE teachers - contains material for seven lesson plans and three assemblies.

Respect, Excellence, Friendship, Courage, Determination, Inspiration and Equality - what do these Olympic and Paralympic values actually mean for our schoolchildren?

Who Comes First? gives teachers a chance to explore these big ideas with their classes in RE lessons, encouraging pupils to ask hard questions about sporting values, respond to true-life stories in a variety of ways - and reflect on the opportunities and challenges that an athlete's sense of purpose could possibly have for their own lives.

PE and Games can sometimes be part of an unconscious 'hidden curriculum' that celebrates the achievements of the talented few and ignores the less-talented many. Here's a chance to explore the other side of the winning tape!
