Drawing the Future with a Transitions Twist

Using the basis of a simple activity that generated revealing research about children’s aspirations in 2016, your growing learners will first annotate a ‘head/heart/bag/feet’ template to consider how they think (head) and feel (heart), what they will take away from primary (bag), and what actions they will take in Year 7 (feet).  They will then use a second template to draw who they want to be when they grow up and finally make the connection between their aspirations for Year 7 and their future career aspiration.  You can then pass their drawings on to their secondary school.
