'Crazy Trees' Sarah noticed these crazy trees at school, so we went around photographing unusual trees and then created stories about them. Great fun!

The Learning Brain

This is an amazing presentation that explains how the brain learns. Intelligence is not fixed! We have the ability to increase our intelligence, improve our brain functioning and maximise our learning. Well worth a watch!

BRAIN PROJECT (see Homework and Assignments tab) Children learnt about some of the parts of the brain and made a project to demonstrate how we learn more effectively. We will continue to focus regularly on the difference between having a 'Fixed' or 'Growth Mindset' and how this can influence our success and well being. For more pictures, please see the PHOTOS tab of this blog.
