March Comes in Like a Lion…..

Well, 3rd class have been having a great time since our return to school on March 15th. Every day the children have been working together in solving maths problems, conversing as Gaeilge, reading and writing, singing, dancing, improvising in drama, and designing patterns for jumpers and t-shirts! We even managed to squeeze in a visit from the Easter bunny! After such a long time out of school, it has been wonderful to see the children enjoying the simple pleasures of working and learning together again. We have started learning about the Growth Mindset this month and we learned how to flip fixed mindset thoughts into growth mindset thoughts. The children were excellent at identifying growth mind set reactions to various challenges. This a great sign of their resilience in these trying times and a great indicator of their ability to overcome challenges. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and looking forward to coming back to school in two weeks for more fun and learning.
