Chinese Visit 2019

 

Last term, we were exceptionally lucky in Year 5 to be visited by children from Guangzhou in China. We had 26 guests aged between 8 and 11 who spent time in and amongst our class, learning with us and even teaching us a little about their school and language.

 

 

We took on a variety of different tasks throughout the week including maths investigations, reading comprehensions, research tasks, sketching and lots of PE!

 

 

 

We also had a chance to go to the woods and see bluebells in bloom (very British!) and we even walked down to St Leonard's church to show our guests some of our older buildings.

 

We had a fantastic couple of weeks and were really sad to say goodbye!

Growth Mindset

We’re watching a video series about how students can develop a growth mindset! Watch it at: www.classdojo.com/BigIdeas, and ask your child these questions tonight.

 

1. What was the biggest challenge you faced today?

(Ask your child, and then have them ask the question back!)

 

2. How can you and I think about these challenges in a new way?

 

3. What can we do differently tomorrow if we face similar challenges?
