Welcome to Spring Term 2018!
This term we will be learning about The Green, Green Grass of Home and comparing it to a country in North America. See the topic web below for more details about our learning.
We started the term with some challenging Growth Mindset activities.
The children had to attempt to make a table (to hold a VERY heavy book) using only newspaper and masking tape. The children had to be persistant, be able to rethink their original plans and be flexible thinkers. The children also had to ensure that everyones ideas were listened to. Each team had a different strategy, and it was wonderful to see the flow of creativity and the courage to try new ideas.
The children also entered a competition to create a Growth Mindset Mascot for the class. Our winners were:
Popdom and Mindset Man!
To record all of their fantastic mindset moments, the children created a booklet linked to our school values, fellowship, courage and creativity. The children will be able to look back through these books and see all the times that they have FAILed (First Attempt In Learning), or they have succeeded due to their persistence or willingness to keep trying!
We realise that the move from KS1 to KS2 can be challenging for the Year 3 children as they have to get used to being part of the ‘Juniors’ and working with different routines.
As a team, we endeavour to make the transition between KS1 and KS2 as smooth as possible for your child. Therefore, if you have any questions, please feel free to make an appointment to speak to me.
