According to the BBC, the Scottish Government want all Scottish school children to see Chariots of Fire, and the inspirational story of Eric Liddell. The story of Eric Liddell was the main focus for our topic on the Olympics during last session, which included a lot of good language, literacy and Health and Wellbeing work (I may even share more of the work and the plans) and it culminated with watching the film. We even learned the theme on the tin whistle.

Here’s some other good pieces by the BBC on the great man’s life and story:
