The marshmallow test!


Today Miss Morrison gave us a test…the marshmallow test! She gave us all one marshmallow each, she told us we could eat it but if we waited 15 minutes and didn’t eat it then she would give us another one so we would have 2 to eat. We found it very difficult, Robbie was closing his eyes because he said if he couldn’t see it he felt less tempted to eat it! Everyone showed a lot of self-control and after 15 minutes we all got another marshmallow. We are learning about fasting in R.M.E, fasting is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. The marshmallow test gave us an insight into how important self-control must be.
