This afternoon, you’re being asking to further investigate your role models. This time, you will choose your own 3 role models- 1 from your family (mum, dad, sister, brother, aunty, uncle, nan, pop etc.), 1 from the community (a sports coach, your neighbor, someone from your sports team or club, a scout leader, an every day person) and 1 celebrity ( singer, actor/actress, sports person).
The aim is for you to really, really think about the qualities or traits that make a positive role model, rather than just thinking of someone who is entertaining. I want you to think about the whole person- how do they face challenges or set backs, do they do great things in the community, do they stand up for others, do they just have really awesome manners, a awesome attitude etc. etc.
In your BIG green book, you need to complete a list, mind map, drawing, paragraph, convincing us that your 3 people are super positive role models.
We will investigate these role models tomorrow, where we will try to collate the traits and characteristics that make a great role model.
Of course, you don’t know your celebrity intimately, so you can research (after you have written down your search terms) to find out some more information that might convince you if they are a positive or negative role model.
