We are thinking about things that happen in the world that show perseverance.


We are thinking about someone who did something to help the NHS through the pandemic.

Captain Tom Moore walked round his garden to raise money for the NHS. He raised a massive 32 million pounds for the NHS through his perseverance and sadly passed away after catching covid himself last month.


Watch the BBC news clip and also read the news report if you wish.

Now think about the following;


  • Was the result of perseverance worth the effort?
  • Do you think there were times when he wanted to give up, but carried on?
  • Do you think he was proud of finishing his challenge?
