Happy hunting! 🙂
The images in frames 9 and 10 are now live!
Please note that due to a slight error on my part, the image that was in frame 5 now has a new home! The image that was in the frame is one of the ones that did not require you to take down information and can now be found in a different location. Sorry!!
PS. Please check out the following mind map that one of our Y6 pupils produced. He clearly has a good understanding of what is required to have a Growth Mindset! 🙂
The image in frame number five is now live!
Frames 4 and 7 now contain images!!
Please remember that frame 7 does NOT require any evidence on your sheet.
Happy searching! 🙂
GROWTH MINDSET COMPETITION!
You will have received the details yesterday, both through e-mail and a paper copy, but listed below are the key pieces of information regarding our Growth Mindset competition!
Located around the school are 15 frames. Each frame has a number stuck on the wall above it.
During the remaining weeks of the term, I will be inserting images in to each of the frames; the images will be of famous individuals from the past and present and will all be accompanied by a quote.
Here’s where you come in! I will be running a competition to see who can name all of the individuals who are pictured / quoted in the different frames. Some of the individuals you will know whereas others will have been alive far before you were born (you may need to ask an adult to support you with these ones!). Pay close attention to the images as many will contain big clues that will support you in finding the answer!
You can write your answers in the competition card sent home on Monday. All completed cards should then be handed to the school office by Wednesday 29th March. During assembly on Friday 31st March, all correct entries will be placed into a hat, with the three chosen competition cards winning a special prize!
A couple of the frames will not contain a quote from a particular individual; these have been marked with a ‘X’ on the card and will not require you to do anything.
The images could go up at any point so you’ll have to be extra-observant if you’re keen to participate. Also, the images will be put up over a period of three and a half weeks so you’re going to have to be resilient and will need to commit to checking the frames frequently.
All that’s left for me to say is…good luck! I look forward to receiving your completed entries on Wednesday 29th March.
Mr. G. 🙂
PS. Keep an eye on the blog for further details of when the new images are inserted into frames.
Children from the whole school have been competing against each other, and hundreds from others from schools across Devon to become a cup stacking champion.
The children must race against the clock to build a specific sequence of cups. The world record is currently under 6 seconds. We still have some way to go with our school record currently at 15 seconds.
Spelling this morning for Monkey Puzzle was a quick game of suffix match to root words. The competition and dedication amongst the class was fantastic. They were all determined do spell well and beat their partner!
Can you think of suffixes that we can to add to words?
