    Esme said that trying your best means working very hard at all times. Morwenna says that trying your best is about not giving up. Chloe said that it means trying things and persevering.
    Orla told us that trying hard is important for good learning and success. Minnie told us it is important because you can improve.
    I asked the children what they would like to be world class at doing. They had lots of thoughts.
    – horse riding (Minnie)
    -footballer (Kyton)
    -swimming (Annabelle)
    -rock climbing (Mason)
    -jumpimg (Morwenna)
    -singing (Esme)
    -dancing (Rosie)
    Experts say that it will take 10,000 hours of practice to be world class. (Elsie)
    Year 1 enjoyed listening to the story of Steven. Morwenna told us that Steven never gave up and that he didn’t lose sight of his goal. We all enjoyed watching Steven achieve his gold medal and his olympic dream. The classroom was so quiet as we were all willing him to succeed and do well.

    As a class, we were shocked with how many hours are needed to perfect something! We talked about many sports stars who have had to work incredibly hard and show amazing discipline to achieve the success they’ve had!

    After watching the video about Steven, we listed words to describe him…
    determined, hard working, passionate, brave, strong, patient, skilled, clever and a role model to us all. We agreed that these are skills we would like to have too!
