What a bright and sunny start to the new term! We have been working outside on some problem-solving Maths games and learning about different mental strategies when adding.
We also began our Queen’s Jubilee entries for the Living Lerwick art competition. Everyone was asked to design a picture showing what the Queen might see or do if she came to Shetland for a visit.
It was lovely to see the children making choices about how they would present their picture, using pencils, pens, paint or collage.
I was so proud to hear so many supportive comments when confidence levels dipped amongst some pupils, believing their picture was not good enough. What an amazing team we have in our classroom! You can take the following quote with you the next time you need a confidence boost…
“Believe in yourself!” (Ella, P4)
