Welcome to the Blue Class Page!

Following the prime minister’s broadcast on Sunday evening our position at school has not changed in that we are closed to all children except those of key workers. If your child has not been given a place in school during the current closure they should remain at home.

Thank you for your continued support.

Growth mindset-

Growth mindset teaches us that we should always give our best even if something is hard to do.

Now talk to a grown up to answer these questions

  1. What did the tortoise learn?
  2. What did the hare learn?
  3. Who was helping the tortoise and how?
  4. Can you learn from getting things wrong?
  5. What are your strengths?

Grown-ups: Some of these questions are hard to think about and answer and it might be helpful to give prompts e.g. Did the tortoise give up? Why was the hare so confident? What did the hare do wrong?

 

Now choose something that you found difficult and have tried hard with. Draw a picture of yourself trying hard at the activity. Maybe include a speech bubble.

Reading

You have seen the power point now choose one of the reading levels and try the comprehension.
