PSHE – Going for Goals – Break a goal down into small steps.                    

Think about all you know about achieving  ‘goals’.

Think back to last week and your preferred learning styles’ – can you remember the three different learning styles?


Sometimes we have long and short term goals – achieving a goal is more to do with how we do it and what we do, rather than external factors eg – the weather or luck.


Setting a goal involves us using our problem solving skills and we have to think about our immediate goal and what we want in the long term.


Read part 1 of Daisy and Rehana (link below) – What do you think Rehana’s Dad meant when he said, ‘ You could eat an elephant one bite at a time’?

How could this help you to achieve your goal?


Activity – Come up with a plan for Daisy and Rehana to achieve their goal. What are they going to have to do? Complete the ladder resource sheet (link below) of the steps needed.    If you cannot print the sheet draw a ladder on paper and add the steps. 


Eg – how much does Alton towers cost? How can we make the money to go? How will we get there? What will we do when we are there? Will we need to wear certain clothes? What do we need to take with us?
