A couple of weeks ago, we learned that we can s-t-r-e-t-c-h our brains by listening to our ‘What If Buddies’. We have been really impressed with all the stories the children have told us since about when they have found themselves in a situation where the ‘What if Monster’ has been trying to stop them from doing something new in case things go wrong or because it might be scary and of how they have listened to their ‘What If Buddy’ instead.
Last week, we thought about the importance of setting ourselves challenges and then working towards achieving them. We discussed how this can sometimes be very hard to do as things can often go wrong along the way and it may sometimes make you feel like you want to ‘give up’. We read the book, ‘The Most Magnificent Thing’ by Ashley Spires to help us understand that by tackling challenges a step at a time and by being supportive of each other even the biggest challenges don’t seem quite as challenging!
We also learnt a song called, ‘Every Step Counts’, which reminds us that with every step we take, no matter how small, we are moving on and in the direction of achieving what we have set out to achieve.
We are now interested to hear about all the things the children want to achieve and how they might challenge themselves to succeed and be magnificent!
