RE – Expectations

Recent Posts

We began our new RE topic on Expectations by considering ‘I would like/wish for’ and ‘I expect’ and what the difference was.  We discussed how there is a lot of difference between ‘I would like/wish for’ and ‘I expect’.

To expect something means that there is a strong possibility, even a certainty that it is going to happen.

We then talked about how it is good to have high expectations of a person. It gives them confidence. However, expectations of yourself and others have to be realistic.

The children then got into mixed ability groups and considered a range of scenarios from day to day life, e.g. completing some homework or preparing for an event. They used role-play to show the expectation that they should have of themselves and what others, such as parents and teachers, expected from them.
