Year 4 Team
Growth Mindset Week
This week we have used our 6Rs to attempt some Growth Mindset Challenges where we were only allowed 1 piece of A4 paper. We attempted to:
- build the tallest structure
- build the strongest bridge
- create origami animals.
We had a lot of fun!
Check out our Christmas jumpers. We are all looking forward to our yummy Christmas dinner too.
Visit to Sky Leeds Dock
Year 4 had an amazing day visiting the offices of SKY. The visit really gave the children an opportunity to see how coding and HTML is used in the work place. We looked at how developers and testers work together to make a finished product and saw some products that will not be available to use for another 12 months! A big thank you to Seth's mum for making this happen.
