Use this “Getting to know me” activity with your primary school class at the start of the school year to help pupils get to know themselves a little better and to set a goal that they would like to work towards. This activity will also help give you a sense of their character.
This task will encourage pupils to think about how they look, their personality, the
things they enjoy doing, and who are the important people in their lives. The
worksheet finishes with a goal that pupils can set themselves to achieve – or work
towards completing - by the end of the school year. Teachers can revisit these
goals during the last term. Pupils can either set these goals themselves, work in
groups or teachers can ask pupils to work as a class to set a goal for everyone to
The second worksheet is aimed at pupils who are working in groups or as a class to
set an achievable goal. This may be more suitable for pupils working at lower key
stage 1 or for children with SEND.
