Resource – Road to Aspiration

resourceA little idea for form time to get students considering where they want to go this year, to question there aspirations and goals and to consider how they will get there.


The road to aspiration resource can be used in a variety of ways from verbal discussion to reflective journal. I’ve not thought that far ahead yet, so can’t tell you how I’ll be using it just yet but thought I’d share in case if inspires others.

Hope you like it, if you’re inspired to create something similar, please share your creations. Always love to see and share them.

Acts of Kindness Christmas Countdown

I kind of decided many moons ago that creating responsible citizens was always going to be part of my educational ethos. I’m am/was an eco-warrior (until I realised how much paper I use) and have always been of the opinion that conservation and global citizenship is what will create a sustainable future. Therefore acts of kindness has always fitted in with my personal ethos.

To start this off in my school I carried out an acts of kindness bingo with my form group at the start of this year. It was greeted with an incredible response from them, the students came up with the acts of kindness and then started to put in place their suggestions in order to ‘sign off’ on the bingo sheet. Then they started just doing the acts willingly and never bothered to ‘sign off’. Now that’s the true ethos of game right?

So on the countdown to Christmas I’ve decided that this year instead of a chocolate advent calendar, this year I would share an acts of kindness countdown to Christmas with my form group.

Christmas Countdown

I can’t wait to share it with my form group next week. I have treats, cards and other bits and bobs for them to use to give to others at the ready.

How will you share the seasonal spirit this year?

Here’s one take on the idea I shared
