Welcome Back! September 2020
Endings...and New Beginnings!
Endings can sometimes feel scary because they often mean that something is about to change.
Or you've really enjoyed something and you don't want it to stop.
Emotions you might feel when something changes can be both positive and negative and might even change themselves!
Try to see chanGe as a chanCe...
- A chance to experience something new.
- A chance to improve upon something.
- A chance to make more friends.
-A chance to get to understand yourself more.
At Virginia, we are coming to the end of the school year...
The next two weeks of school mark the ending of this academic year.
In previous years there would be events that would signal and celebrate that the year is coming to an end...
Being Brave- Standing up for others
Sometimes being brave means to stand up for people or to stand up to people.
What would you do if you saw someone not respecting someone else's rights?
Would you stand up for them?
This week we are looking at an article of the United Nation Convention on the rights of the child .
Did you guess it?
What could you do to help ALL children enjoy the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family?
Write down your thoughts before you compare them with the ideas below.....
Feel free to share your thoughts with myself and Amanda in the Assemblies Blog, we would love to find out what you think.
An aspiration is a hope or ambition of achieving something.
Most people have dreams or aspirations they would love to achieve, sometimes this is taking on a new adventure, doing something that takes them out of their comfort zone or developing themselves in some way that makes them feel good about who they are.
Aspirations are important because they can contribute immensely to your development as a person and becoming who you want to be.
What can Aspirations look like?
Aspirations can change depending on the timescale of what you want to achieve.
How do you want life to be after lockdown?
What do you want to do and who do you want to become as you grow older?
Like going on an adventure, achieving an aspiration can be challenging and at times it may feel like you might not reach your goal.
But being adventurous means facing difficulties and finding ways to carry on and persevere.
Tips for persevering
The most important thing about aspirations....
Little things that we may have not noticed when our lives where busy and fast might surprise you, make you curious and want to explore more...
On your next daily walk, what do you notice that makes you feel awe? It might just be catching a flower in the sunlight or a bumble bee with pollen loaded up upon its legs.
How can you find more?
