KS2 Inspirational Figures

From September 2019, students will find out what it means to Be Inspired and to Reach For The Stars. They will learn about Marie Tussaud herself, a pioneering woman of her time, exploring the qualities that make a person a good role model. Students will also be asked to identify the challenges that she faced throughout her life and to use what they learn in the workshop to find their own inspiration and set their own goals.

Core Objectives:

  • Defining and understanding the word ‘inspiration’ and exploring the qualities that role models or influential people possess
  • Understanding that role models are not ‘perfect’ people
  • Identifying role models and explaining reasons for choices
  • Understanding that everyone faces challenges in reaching their goals
  • Exploring how to overcome challenges or difficulties
  • Identifying significant moments in the biography of Marie Tussaud and/or another role model of choice
  • Setting aspirational goals that are inspiring in multiple contexts
