My expectations keep me motivated on something I don’t need to think about. I start day dreaming through a critical piece of lesson. The more I think, the more I worry about the consequences of the trip, how much money it has cost, whether I’ll do good work or not.
I hope that the people I’m with will be pleasant and nice.
Next week the year 5/6 are going to the Pyrenees for a residential. At this time of year the Pyrenees are not snowy so you can do walking and do activities – that is what we are going to do. we are all hoping that it will be fun.
Next week we are going to the Pyrenees for four days and three nights! From Tuesday till Friday, I can’t wait because after the trip on Saturday is my birthday and on the same day is my party!! I’m really excited. I have to sleep in a room with six people! There are two floors where we sleep, at the bottom is a dining room, two classrooms (in case it rains) and a sort of playground with a fantastic view of the Pyrenees!
I’m a bit worried about the trip to the Pyrenees, hopefully nobody will keep me up all night!
Probably it will get very tiring because we will be walking all day in the mountains but we may see some caves!
We created a Google spreadsheet which has many of our predictions on it.
Now you can use this to see how you will do in the school year ahead.
First pick a colour: RED BLUEYELLOWor GREEN
Once you’ve chosen your colour, choose a number between 2 and 15.
Have you chosen?
Now you’re ready to try our Virtual Paper Fortune Teller.
Just one thing before you do. The Virtual Paper Fortune Teller was designed for Year 5 children, that’s children between 9 and 10 years old. It was also calibrated for children at the International School of Toulouse. It will work for you if you’re not that age or in that school, but you will need to adapt it to your own circumstances.
Have you still got that colour and number?
OK. Here we go…
Click on the picture below. Look in the column that’s the colour you chose and along the row that’s the number you chose. That’s your prediction.
Oh, and one other thing. Your future is not fixed. You can change what happens, making it better than you thought it might be for instance, by what you do. But that’s obvious.
It’s still the beginning of Year 5 for us at IST, so today we had a go at seeing into the future. How would we do in Year 5? What successes might we have? We used a paper fortune teller to look at some of the things we might like to happen.
