Aspirations from Appleton Thorn Primary School

Goalkeeper. Today on aspirations day, I have come dressed as a goal keeper. I have come as this because it is fun. I was inspired by Reina because he is my favourite goalkeeper. I will have to train hard and keep fit and try my best. Year 2.

I would like to be a footballer when I grow up because you get paid a lot of money and I love it when the crowd are cheering for your team when you score a goal for your team. I also adore it when I get man of the match and you get to spray the champagne and I love getting interviewed. I really want to be like David Beckham because every time he has the ball at his feet he always knows what to do, where to go and he is really precise with the ball. David Beckham keeps himself fit and healthy by drinking a lot of water by eating his fruit and veg and also going to the gym. If I eat and drink and go to the gym, when I am older I might be fit and healthy just like David Beckham. When I’m getting to my retiring football years I want to be a legend footballer. If I make a football team I will need to be determined to go on the pitch in front of 1000s people and to try to play your absolute best every game I play and if you want to be a legend footballer like David Beckham, you have to be a great sportsman as well. Year 3

Fashion Designer. My best educational subjects are literacy, art, DT. Literacy is fun because I love writing and if I wasn’t into designing I would love to be an author. Art because I have the time to design and DT is the same as art. The best educational subjects are Art, DT, ICT and numeracy. Art and DT because I get time to design. ICT I design on the computer and name and write about it and numeracy because I have to know a lot about measurements and width. Year 4.

Horse Rider. I want to be a horse rider because I really like horses and I really like horse riding. I want to go to races because I think it would be fun. I would like feeding the horse but I would not like cleaning up the stable. I want to win a big trophy. Year 1.

Teacher. Dear Head Teacher of Appleton Thorn primary school. I am … and I am sure that I would be a great teacher in this school. I am writing to inform you on my qualities for being a teacher in your school. Firstly I love little children even though I have no younger siblings. Secondly I know I can stay calm. If a child would start to be badly behaved I would give them warnings. I also know I can be patient and dedicated to my work. My inspiration is Mrs Railton as she made my school life fun in year one. Finally the year I would like to teach is Year One as they are not brand new to the school or too old. Thank you for reading this letter and I wish to see you soon. KS2
