This week’s homework is talk time and is due on Thursday 15 November.
This half term, our Christian value is perseverance.
Discuss this scenario with your family:
One day, Sam’s teacher set his class a challenge. The challenge was to learn to count in 3s and recite it to the teacher next week. Sam always found maths challenging but wanted to give it his best go. All week, Sam practised and practised and practised because it wasn’t an easy challenge. The next week came and, after much practice, Sam managed to count in 3s. He excitedly told his best friend Lucy. Lucy laughed and showed Sam her arm – all up her arm were the numbers to count in 3s ready to recite to the teacher.
- Who showed perseverance in this scenario?
- Was it ok for Lucy to write the answers on her arm?
- How would you show perseverance when set a difficult challenge?
