The 'Resilience' Team
Miss Kostiw, Mr Lawrence, Mrs Thomas, Ms Bartlett and Mrs Nerdrum.
- Just as we teach and establish the classroom structures for learning to read we can do the same for building and supporting resilience, a proactive skill in all our students. When the teachers at our school establish resilient classrooms they support memorable experiences for children and higher academic achievement.
- We encourage children to develop an ethos of never giving up and never giving in, part of learning to be resilient is learning that mistakes are a purposeful tool for learning and a positive experience to work through.
- Our children are always encouraged to aim higher and higher. We believe that children will persist in problem solving if we support that persistence. Children become more confident in their skills when we convey to them, through positive nurturing and encouragement, that they are capable and up to the challenge.
- Part of learning to be resilient is also recognising that there will also be times when things get tough. We are committed at promoting positive mental health and well-being at Offham and therefore, through our PSHE, nurture and wellbeing schemes, we also aim to help our children develop the capacity to work through difficult times.
Maths, Art, D.T and P.E
These subjects have been allocated to us to help analyse, maintain and improve.
What have we done this year?
Maths Week - Term 2
We had a brilliant week exploring lots of problem-solving and reasoning tasks during Maths week. We were all given a range of investigations to explore how we could improve our reasoning skills. We finished our week by a brilliant inter-house challenge, taking part in a range of activities to win lots of extra house points! Please read below for all of the class' experiences during Maths week, including photos!
