WEEK THREE – VALUES AND VIRTUES
Are you ready for Summer Challenge Week 3?
This week ‘values and virtues’ inspire our activities and art challenge.
How do people show courage?
Everybody has a unique set of values that define our character and personality, that guide us in the way that we behave around the people we meet. Courage is a celebrated value and most people show courage when they overcome fear, show compassion or support change. When social changes are taking place around the globe, we see how brave and valiant people can be.

Many Islamic weapons and armour owned by knights were decorated with Qur'anic inscriptions. The writing is a prayer to show the knight’s connection to God and to ask for protection in battle. What good qualities do you think a knight or a faris (knight in Arabic) would have?
This set of armour from Istanbul is one of 17 Ottoman horse armours in the world today. It is made of metal plates linked together to give the horse and rider greater mobility on the battlefield. Why do people associate the ability to fight with bravery?
