In Friday assembly’s reflection time, we thought about last week’s historic SpaceX mission. What made it special was that the team of four space travellers, who were named Inspiration4, were NOT astronauts! They received SOME astronaut training but it was the first ever mission into space where no one on board was a fully trained astronaut! How amazing for those 4 people, their dreams have come true!
This made me realise that if any Lawford Mead pupils dream of visiting space when they are older, it could be a real possibility, even if they don’t become astronauts. It got us talking in assembly, about the big dreams and ambitions that we are aspiring to achieve in the future.
Here’s what some of the children said…
“I want to take care of sick animals.”
“I want to be a paramedic.”
“I want to earn lots of money so I can help people with it.”
“I want to be a singer but I am nervous on stage.”
For that last one we discussed how we could build confidence and find opportunities to sing at Lawford Mead!
