Free Will and the Power of Choice - Everyday Resilience for ...

This week we thought we would mix things up a bit! It can be really hard to keep motivated when you have been away from school for so long and every day brings us closer to the summer holidays. We wanted to think of a way to help you keep going, just a little longer and we thought, wouldn’t it be amazing if you could choose your own topic to focus on this week! So, for this week’s activities we have provided suggestions on how you can present your work and things to focus on within your chosen topic, but it really is a topic of your own choosing!

It could be ANYTHING! Absolutely anything you are really interested in. It could be….

Trains               Football or any other sport               Formula One                     Something from history or the future

A game (yes, even Minecraft!)           Pirates                A hobby          A creature (Real or Imaginary)

A famous person               Technology            Planes          A film          A book

We could go on; the options are endless! Just remember to choose something that will really motivate and inspire you!,
