We have been thinking about all the ways we show we are ready to learn.
We created a mind map to share all our thoughts. These included ‘being ready and alert’ when we are in class and ‘sat ready at our tables when we should be’.
We demonstrated this behaviour by sitting up smartly with our eyes on the speaker brilliantly!
Asking lots questions is another way we show we’re interested in learning new things. The class remembered the important ‘w’ words- ‘why’, ‘when’, ‘who’, ‘where’ and ‘what’.
After discussing how we feel when we receive both positive and constructive feedback, we played a game called ‘cross the circle’ to explore the things that make us feel proud.
“I feel proud when I finally manage to do something after lots of trying, like getting better at my handwriting.”
“I feel proud when I make new friends.”
