The children in third class have been working hard to train our brains to move from a ‘Fixed’ to a ‘Growth Mindset’ for lifelong learning. The children are really enjoying encouraging each other and when someone thinks “this it too hard” their classmate reminds them that “this may take some time”. #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }

We had great fun on Shrove Tuesday sampling some pancóga in school. We had a choice of adding sugar, Nutella and keeping in line with our Food Dudes initiative-strawberries and blueberries. There were smiles all round as we enjoyed our delicious treat! #gallery-3 { margin: auto; } #gallery-3 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-3 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-3 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; }
