This week, year 4 have been discussing ‘Dreams and Goals’.
A goal is an aspiration that you have – this could be anything from a career/ learning goal to a desire to travel.
We created dream catchers to illustrate our dreams and goals. Have a look!
We discussed the difference between a realistic and an unrealistic goal. I’m sure we’d all like to be super-famous popstars but the likelihood of achieving this goal compared to starting your own baking business for example, is much lower. As long as you have a plan and are continuously working towards your goal, no matter how big, you will be able to achieve it. After all, a goal without action is just a dream.
Sometimes, dreams aren’t easy to achieve. Reaching your goals requires determination, perseverance and resilience! If you don’t succeed at the first try – try again!
Other times, hopes and dreams go wrong. You might find that, no matter how much you persevere, you cannot reach your goal.
We discussed how, in life, sometimes things do not go the way we planned. Instead of feeling down about it, we came up with inspiring and practical tips on how to overcome disappointment.
Here are some encouraging words we have displayed on our ‘wall of encouragement’ along with our favourite quotes!
