Growth Mindsets/ The Brain

Have a think about something that you used to find very difficult and can do better now. Or think about something that you could never ever do but now can. Be ready to talk about it on Monday.

If you can’t think of anything, ask an older person if they have an example that you can share.

Topic

We have started our new Vikings topic and need any card or plastic pizza bases, margarine tubs and petit filous yogurt pots that you can spare!

If the children have any books or resources for an information table they want to bring in that would also be very useful. Thank you to Amber who has already helped with this.

MO LI HUA (Translation)

What a jasmine flower!
When jasmine blooms.
Not even snow is whiter.
I want to pluck one and wear it
But I’m afraid those around me would mock me.

What a jasmine flower!
