A very warm welcome to our class web page!
We have had a really enjoyable start back in Class 2. We have been true superheroes with super minds! We have a focus on growth mindset this year with a more positive outlook on failure and, therefore, learning from our mistakes. Already this term, we have built a positive working ethos within our caring, supportive team and aim to take this with us on a journey of fun, determination and resilience!
We have focused on a text written by Giles Andrea called 'Giraffes Can't Dance', which has given us a great insight to positive thinking and perseverance. We found out from our text exploration, that in fact Gerald could dance when he had a positive mind and gave it his best shot. Poor Gerald felt very anxious and worried about trying something new and we felt the same over the summer holidays as the whole class had to have a go at a new task or activity. We now have the belief that we can do anything we want when we put our mind to it, no matter how many times we fail, we just keep trying!
'We all can dance, when we find music that we love' - Giles Andrea.
This text has been the starting point for a class display where we have each written part of the story in our neatest handwriting. This is a focus during our suspended curriculum alongside presentation of work, mark-making and art and setting personal goals and rules.
