Hi Class 3,
You have been part of history, what we have all been through during our Summer Term has never happened before in history. This week I want you to reflect on your year, the best bits, the funny bits and of course your time in lock-down. We will all be together again in September, which I can’t wait for, as I have missed you all so much. If you would like a chat with me personally this last week, just for a catch up or if you have any questions about next year, please ask your mum or dad to email and we can arrange a time that I can call you after-school one night.
Memories: It is important for your to cherish your favourite memories. Create a drawing or art piece of a special memory from this year and frame it in a hand-made photo frame. You may choose to draw a favourite experience, a funny moment with friends or a school trip. Click here for photo frame ideas.
Achievements: You are all unique and special. Over the course of the last year, you have achieved so much. An achievement is something that has been accomplished through great effort, skill, perseverance and/or courage. Mind map all of your achievements this year, both in school and outside of school. Look at the mind map together with an adult and identify your greatest achievement?
Write about this special achievement. How did you accomplish this? What barriers did you face? Who helped you? You could record this as a story featuring yourselves as the main character, a newspaper report or even write a rap!
Saying Farewell: Ending the academic year can be a time that is full of mixed emotions. However, whilst many aspects of school life change, many remain the same too. Spend some time with your a parent discussing all of the similarities and differences between your current class and the new class 3 in September.
Individual Qualities: create a piece of artwork which represents your personality and highlights your individual qualities. This could be a picture or something more abstract using materials available at home. Once completed, discuss your artwork with someone in your family. Explain what you wanted to represent in art? How did you try to show off your personality through your artwork?
Goal Setting: Setting goals is an excellent way to try and achieve things that you might not think is possible. I have a book that I write my own gaols in, I have a short term, medium term and a very long term goal that I will work towards, I then think about the little steps I will need to make to get to my goal. Goal setting also helps improve confidence and self-esteem when you see look back at the progress you have made. Create a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ with an adult in your family (see below). Use the headings: Learning, Friendships, Physical Challenge, Wellbeing and Family. Under each heading, discuss and write a goal, thinking carefully about how long it will take to achieve each goal, who or what can help you and any difficulties you may have to overcome.
