Making that ‘special’ effort…

I went to Norfolk during the half-term holidays for a few days in a caravan in Hunstanton. It was lovely to be away with the boys, though it could get pretty cold at times – and one morning, the electricity switched off and we had to wait a while until someone came┬áto fix it while we sat under duvets, shivering.

One of the things Jude really loves about being in Hunstanton, is going on the 2p slots at the arcades. He spent ages trying to win a large, pink ‘gem’ from one machine – he was so determined to win it and wouldn’t stop until he had achieved his aim. I really quite admired his ‘stickability’ – he was not giving up until he had succeeded. In the same manner, when I taught my Y4/5 class this morning, we started with handwriting – and I could see some children with the same determination as Jude, really putting everything into the task – and they were the ones that succeeded :-).

What is it that you are going to try hard with this term? What are you going to keep woking at until you succeed. Jude ‘won’ a big, glass gem – but you will be winning something better as it will help you get the best education that you can. Tell us about it – and you might even win an extra play…
