Can sportsmen really be seen as ‘heroes’? Or are they just like other
celebrities? What are the differences between celebrities and heroes?
What is the most inspiring sporting achievement you’ve ever seen? What
made it so inspiring?

value? What inspires them?
WALL OF FAME: ask young
people to bring in pictures and
information about the people
that inspire them and add them
to a ‘Wall of Fame’ OR you could

METHODS
TAKE IT
FURTHER
• To explore the Paralympic value of ‘Inspiration’
• Consider the qualities that heroes/heroines need
• To take inspiration from the lives of your heroes & heroines
• Print out the cards on the sheet & glue onto card
• This can either be a whole group or small group activity – each group will need a set of cards
• Everyone in the group must agree on which statements they think are true, which are false and
which could be both – everyone in the group must agree
• What statements were easy to agree on? And which ones were most difficult? What has the group
learned about the values heroes & heroines embody?
• Think about the special qualities your hero or heroine has and what superpowers they might have –
now draw or create a collage of your hero/heroine as a superhero
• Find some pictures of Paralympic heroes & heroines and glue them to card – ask young people to
decide what they think is each athlete’s special quality and how they are inspirational
Superhero Card Sort
Heroes/heroines are
always clever
Sporting Heroes
PLAN IT
• Print out the hero cards or make your own
• Divide your group into 4 smaller groups/pairs
DO IT
• Work with each group/pair to think about their sporting hero – what are their
most inspirational qualities? Do the group share any of those qualities?
• Present your hero– ask each group/pair to present their hero’s life story and their
inspirational qualities
REVIEW IT
• Ask young people what inspires them about each of these heroes? What
inspirational qualities would they like to emulate?
• Ask young people to think about how their hero shows their inspirational qualities
- alone or in a team? By helping others or performing inspiring feats?
Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson
Tanni was born on 26th July 1969 in Cardiff, Wales. As a young child
Tanni wore callipers, as a result of being born with spina biffida, and
started to use a wheelchair from the age of seven. From the outset, her
parents were supportive and encouraged her independent streak.
Tanni's first school experience was at Birch Grove Primary, she
is remembered there as a very determined young lady. Tanni tried
many sports at primary school and particularly enjoyed swimming,
archery and horse riding.
Tanni first tried wheelchair racing at St. Cyres Comprehensive School,
aged 13. At 15 she won the 100 metres at the Junior National
Wheelchair Games. At 18, Tanni became a member of the Bridgend
Athletics Club, the British Wheelchair Racing Squad and was selected
for her first World Wheelchair Games. Since then she has smashed
records in wheelchair racing.
Tanni is a multiple gold medal winner and was made a Dame in 2010.
She is a passionate campaigner on women’s and disability issues.
Oscar Pistorius
Oscar Pistorius – the ‘Blade Runner’ – had both of his legs
amputated below the knee when he was a baby. As a result, he runs
with prosthetic “blades” that are attached to his legs, enabling him to
run. His training and dedication has given him the capacity to compete
with the best able-bodied athletes in the world.
Oscar is the winner of four Paralympic gold medals and three World
Championship gold medals. He is also the first amputee to win an ablebodied world track medal.
More recently he has become involved in modelling and fashion, and
picked up GQ’s Best Dressed Man Award in South Africa and was
nominated for GQ USA’s Man of The Year 2011.
Oscar has continued to champion sport as a tool for development and
has often spoken of the positive effect sport had on his own life growing
up in South Africa. He says
”You’re not disabled by the disabilities you have, you are enabled by the
abilities you have.”
Simon Richardson MBE
Simon Richardson was involved in a serious crash in
2001, aged 41, which left him permanently disabled. He
was hit by a car, which left him with serious leg and
back injuries and no feeling down his left hand side.
Doctors recommended cycling would help his
rehabilitation, so he continued, using a speciallyadapted bike powered by his right leg.
It was during his five-year rehabilitation that he
competed and won Gold & Silver medals in Beijing
2008 and was awarded the MBE for his sheer "mettle".
He has been described as “a brilliant guy, highly
motivated, and with such a positive outlook on life”
Ade Adepitan MBE
Ade Adepitan contracted polio as a baby and needed callipers to help
him walk. He picked up a basketball having seen the Great Britain
Wheelchair Basketball Team in action and since then he has never
looked back, playing basketball professionally and winning medals in all
the major championships. He has been honoured by the Queen for
services to disability sport.
Ade is also a television presenter and his television work has allowed
him to help those less fortunate than himself - he has campaigned
against racism and disability discrimination as well as being a patron for
Scope and the Association for Wheelchair Children.
Ade’s courage and determination was shown when, during filming of
Beyond Boundaries, a pulley broke and he was forced to haul himself
up a 5000 foot mountain in the blazing heat.
Never one to sit around, Ade’s energy and enthusiasm have led him to
compete in the London Marathon and take up wheelchair tennis!

Aims, Objective & Outcomes
Aims
Objectives
Outcomes
• AIMS
• Becoming a ‘creative explorer’ by exploring the Olympics through creation,
investigation and performance
• OBJECTIVES
• Completing a cultural challenge that promotes creativity, investigation, innovation and
performance around inspiration
• OUTCOMES
• Understanding who and what inspires us creatively, using reflective thinking, applying
the Olympic message to your own life, developing creative skills, working individually
and as a team, expressing understanding of the value of inspiration creatively
• REACT & ACT
• Have each member of
the group write an
inspirational event on a
slip of paper – this
could be scoring the
winning goal at
Wembley, getting
engaged or winning the
lottery. Put all the
paper slips in a
bag/box/bin (or
similar) and ask each
young person to pick a
slip and then act out
their reaction to what’s
on the slip. The rest of
the group try and guess
what the event is!
INDIVIDUAL
• VALUES AUCTION
• Give each young
person an imaginary
£10,000 to spend on
the Olympic &
Paralympic Values.
Auction each Value
and keep a tally of
what each young
person has spent
and the price each
value ‘sells’ for.
Discuss which value
has the most
importance for the
group, and why?
SMALLER GROUPS
LARGE GROUP
Icebreakers
• FOUR CORNERS
• Young people have a
piece of paper that
they need to divide
into four with 2
straight lines. In
each corner ask
them to draw/write:
an object that
inspires them,
someone who
inspires them, what
animal they would
be, the most
important thing in
their life. Now
compare sheets!
Discussion Points
PRINT THEM OFF!
STICK THEM UP!
GET PEOPLE TALKING!
Need more ideas? Use the ‘Know Your Values’ quiz (see online resources)
to kick start some great conversations
Discussion Points
What musicians/writers/performers inspire you? What
qualities do they have that you find inspirational?
Thomas Edison once said that genius was “1% inspiration
and 99% perspiration” – do you think hard work is more
important to success than the inspiration to do well?
Are inspirational figures always good role models?
Inspirational Music
AIM: To explore the power of music to inspire and express ourselves
METHOD: Ask young people to choose one song that inspires them and to share
it with the rest of the group – make sure young people bring their music in a
format you can play or consider using a free service like Spotify
www.spotify.com/uk
HOW IT WORKS: Listen to each individual’s choice of songs and ask them to
share why the songs have meaning for them. Now think about:
Lyrics: Do you think lyrics can inspire & influence?
Music: what techniques do musicians use to make their music inspiring?
WHAT NEXT: ask young people to write their own personal lyrics to
their song or even to create their own music if you have the resources –
this could be as individuals or groups
Inspirational Flags
PLAN IT
• Young people are going to
create a Tibetan prayer flag
that symbolises the find
inspirational
• MATERIALS: different
coloured card – blue (sky),
white (air), red (fire), green
(water), yellow (earth)
HOW IT WORKS
• Young people will choose a
piece of coloured card
appropriate to their
inspirational thought
• Young people write or draw
their inspirational message on
card
• Young people who want to
share their inspirations are
encouraged to do so
WHAT NEXT
• Display your flags!
• Encourage young people to
discuss the things and people
that inspire them and give
reasons why they do
• Find out more about Tibetan
prayer flags and the symbols
that are used

Inspiration Medals
PLAN
• Materials: Paper plates, foil, paints, pens, decorative art materials, magazines and
other collage materials
• This is suitable for young people working alone or in pairs
DO
• Give each young person a paper plate and ask them to turn it into an ‘Inspiration
Medal’ – this can either be to inspire themselves to do great things or to be
awarded to someone who has inspired them to use inspirational words and
images to complete their medal
WHAT NEXT?
• Award them! Have an award ceremony where young people present their medals and
explain why their medal looks the way it does – discuss the choices young people have
made in putting together their design and what similarities and differences there are
between the medals
• Display them! Make a display of your inspiration medals in your centre
Young People’s Challenge:
Graffiti Wall
PLAN
• MATERIALS
• Flip chart paper, marker pens, paints, collage materials
- do not use aerosols inside
• Inspirational quotes & images from books, magazines,
the internet
DO
• METHOD & IMPLEMENTATION
• Challenge young people to create a graffiti wall in your
centre that reflects what ‘inspiration’ means to them
• Alternately you could produce an e-book , an online
photo album using Flickr or similar or a video
NEXT STEPS
• WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
• Why not move on from the graffiti wall to a full scale
