Make a Jar of Hopes
After reading some of the short stories and poems think about your own hopes for the future.
Think about the coming year. What are you hoping for? It could be for time to play games with friends, activities with your family, visiting places, a skill you would like to learn, a talent you would like to develop, a book you would like to read. Think about the things you have missed out on this year that you would like to do next year.
• Find a jar with a lid.
• Write down each idea on a separate piece of paper and fold it up small.
• Put each one in the jar.
• Decorate the jar.
• When September comes you could take one ‘hope’ out of the jar each week and see if you can achieve it.
Create a memory wheel of Year 3. Create a memory wheel of your time in Year 3.
Choose around 6 or 8 memories that are special or stand out in your memory.
Divide a circle into segments and draw/write about your memories in each section.
This will be a special way of remembering the past year.
