Going for Goals

This week, the children have started the new term (and new year) thinking about what they would like to achieve over the next weeks and months and the attitudes; such as motivation, determination and perseverance, that we need in order to reach our goals.


We have looked at examples of people who have shown determination, and overcome obstacles, in order to reach their chosen goal. Ask your child if they can tell you the stories of Bailey Matthews or Beethoven and what we can learn from them.

A phrase we will return to many times over this term is

Persevere to reach your Potential


In Collective Worship, we have looked at what the Bible says about achieving goals and have used a verse from Philippians

‘Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead,

I press on toward the goal …’
