I was asked to search for pupils showing resilience as my challenge today.
I saw y6 pupils showing resilience in their rehearsals for the end of year show.
I also saw a small group of y3/4 pupils showing clear resilience in their reading group session with Mr Hackney.
Well done everyone!
Early Years Consultant Julie Smith is delivering ‘Barefoot and Brains’ training from the Children’s Centre today, with practitioners from Early Years settings across the borough attending.
Julie has been ‘creative’ to ensure her training is interactive.
Practitioners are learning how to support young children to become physically ‘resilient’ by proving them with Barefoot experiences.
Throughout school today it was really evident that children regularly worked independently. Whether this was using the building blocks in reception or leading their own guided reading group.
We found examples of resilience in Reception and in Nursery.
Children were building…
…And they were steering to avoid obstacles (with some guidance from friends!)
Keira and Mia in class 2 showed resilience when building a tower out of polystyrene cups. After the first attempt didn’t work they proved they would not be defeated and gave it another go.
My mission was to find evidence of perseverance.
I found this in Y2 Mrs Paddocks class.
The children were using maths to solve problems involving sharing. What enticed me into the classroom was seeing the children all listening intently to each other.
We found reflection outside on the field with children reflecting on activities they could carry out for sports day!
