Create a drawing or art piece of a special memory of primary school and frame it in a hand-made photo frame. You could choose to draw a favourite lesson, a funny moment with friends, a school trip, your favourite teacher or a job role you were proud of. Here's an idea for how to make a frame below:
Remember...an achievement is something that has been accomplished through great effort, skill, perseverance or courage. Can you create a mind map of your achievements this year, both in school and outside of school? Look at your mind map with someone else in your house and identify your greatest achievement. Can you write about your greatest achievement? How did you accomplish this? What barriers did you face? Who helped you? You could even record your achievement as a story featuring yourself as the main character, a newspaper report or even write a rap!
Art can be a great tool for self-exploration and self-expression. Can you create a piece of artwork which represents your personality and highlights your individual qualities? This could be a picture or something more abstract using materials available at home. You might find listening to your favourite music encourages your own expression. When you have finished, show someone who lives in your home. Explain how it shows your personality.
Setting goals is an excellent way for you to try and achieve things that you might not think are possible. Goal setting will also help you to improve your confidence and self-esteem when you see that you can achieve the target you’ve set. Create a ‘Wheel of Fortune’. Use the headings: Learning, Friendships, Physical Challenge, Wellbeing and Family. Under each heading, write a goal, thinking carefully about how long it will take to achieve each goal, who or what can help you and any difficulties you may have to overcome.
