Can anybody remember what the word 'hindsight' means?

You looked at it in your English last week.

LI: To continue to use the metaphor of a journey within my own life.

Over the past few weeks in RE, you have been thinking about your own life journey. You begun by thinking about the past, and then thought about the present. We have also thought about how things impact other things within our life journey.


Many things in your life happen because of something in your past. Lots of things impact what will happen in the future: this may be soon, or in years to come. Other things happen because of things that are out of our control.


E.g. (You looked at this last week).

  • If I don't do my homework one week, I might be asked to stay in at playtime that week. (Not doing homework causes an impact in the near future)
  • If I don't do my homework, I miss out on securing some learning. Miss Hesketh had given me that work to do so that I could have more practise on a certain task. If I need to use this bit of learning in secondary school, or at another time in my life, I might not be as good at it as someone who had that extra bit of practise when they had done their homework for Miss Hesketh. (years later)
  • If Miss Hesketh prints out some homework and then there is a global pandemic and the whole school closes for three months, she can't give it to the class. Yes it might have the same impacts later on, but not doing the homework was out of anybody's control.



So far we have looked at our past and present. Today you will be looking to the future. What do you see happening later in your life? What milestones might you reach?
