Read or listen to the story ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ here. Talk about how Gerald the giraffe showed determination when trying to achieve his goals.
Ask yourself what would you like to achieve next year, e.g. ‘to improve my handwriting’, ‘count in tens’ or ‘show more kindness to others’.
After this, choose 5 things from the list which you would like to achieve during their next school year. Work together to create a vision board. This can be done by cutting out pictures that represent the goals, pasting onto card and decorating. Bring them in to show your new teacher in September!
