LO: To understand the character strengths that can be developed by taking part in sports activities.


Pope John Paul II loved sport and often talked about how taking part in sports develops our character strengths.  Here are some quotes by Pope John Paul II.


“Playing sport has become very important today, since it can encourage young people to develop important values such as loyalty, perseverance, friendship, sharing and solidarity.”


“Sport trains body and spirit for perseverance, effort, courage, balance, sacrifice, honesty, friendship and collaboration.”


  1. Can you find the character strengths in the quotes above?
  2. Choose some of the character strengths and find out what they mean.  
  3. How can those qualities be developed through sport?
  4. What are the best qualities to show when we are playing sports with others?
  5. Make a poster (digitally if you wish) about one or more of those qualities. You can use the information from your answers to the questions to help you.
  6. If you are able, please email / photograph and email / upload to the blog when you have finished your poster.


LO: To create prints (or other media) to represent a rainforest environment, in the style of Rousseau
