Year 12 have carried out some very thoughtful PSE work based around the concepts of optimism and pessimism. We started our learning by defining what is meant by these terms. Some examples from our own life experiences were given.
The students started to think about how being optimistic can help them with their future learning and careers. We looked at how a job interview would leave a good impression if we are optimistic.
Some new vocabulary was introduced. Year 12 were asked to explain what it means to be thankful.
We then watched a short video called Look After Yourself After Watching This.
It tells the uplifting story of how Nick manages to overcome his physical disabilities. The students completed a worksheet using a word bank to fill in the sentence gaps.
