Yesterday, we thought about what we would do if we won the lottery. We considered whether we would be able to do those things without money and whether our dreams could only be achieved if we had enough money to do them. Hopefully, we realise that not all of our dreams require money. Some might need hard work, determination, resilience and maybe even a little sprinkling of luck.
Today, we are going to think about what you want your life to be like when you are grown up. We are not talking about now, but a number of years time when you are adults. To get you thinking about this, watch this clip from Matilda, a musical inspired by Roald Dahl’s brilliant book.
What do the children in the song want when they are older? Is this the same as you?
Then, try to answer these questions about yourself when you grow up. How might your life be different? What do you want to be able to do when you’re older? What might you like to be able to do? What kind of job would you like? What would you like your hobbies and interests to be? What do you want to be doing with your time?
There are three tasks for you to try. Make sure that you do at least one of them (but feel free to do them all if possible!):
- Post a comment with your thoughts on the questions above. Tell us about your dreams!
- Use the cloud below to create a “dream cloud”. On the cloud, write down what your dreams are for when you are older. If it is easier, you can draw your own cloud and email us a picture of it.
- Put your dreams into the song that you have just heard. Can you change the lyrics of the song to show your own dreams for the future?
This should take 45 minutes.
