Growth mindset/Friendship week

Welcome back to Preston Street School and I trust you have all had a lovely break over the holidays. Firstly can I just say a big thank you for the lovely gifts I received ,  not necessary but very kind and appreciated!

On your marks, get set, GO …… this term has set off at a  great pace and we have lots of miles to cover!

Last week saw us continue work from week 1 one developing a growth mindset. To believe in ourselves and have  a go!  We worked on tasks and activities related to a story I read called ‘ Giraffes can’t dance ‘ which gave us lots of deep discussion. We also  looked at all the things we CAN do and those we can’t do YET ! Pictures of our wonderful dancing giraffes to follow !

It was also our Friendship Assembly last Friday to end our week of work on anti-bullying.

The tasks we did made a big impact. Have a look at the pic collages and hopefully they will  explain everything !





Toothpaste words …….






Other activities this week included looking at compound words and syllables in literacy along with ‘wow’ words ( great vocabulary and some revision work on sharing and number work adding on 10 and taking away 10.

    P2 class blog is great! I’m really impressed with these exercises about unkind words and how they can hurt people inside. Simple but effective I’m sure. Thanks☺

    The way you spoke about how our words can hurt someone inside – the apple story – it is just amazing. Same for the toothpaste trick. Thank you for making our kids better and more caring people.
