Heroes and Villains


Martin Luther, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson? Someone from your family or the local firefighters? There are many heroes and heroines, but who do you admire the most? Learn and sing songs about the infamous villains, Bonnie and Clyde and Cruella de Vil. How does it feel to do good and bad things? Which feels best and why? Can you do a good deed that changes the world? Perhaps we can be heroes, just for one day?

Heroes and villains are everywhere, in real life and fiction. Why not watch a film or read a book to identify the heroes and villains? What characteristics do they have? You could also watch CBBC Newsround and think about the heroic or villainous qualities of public figures. Alternatively, visit a museum to investigate heroes and villains throughout history.
