Last Monday in assembly, we spoke about what great mathematicians have in common. These are: Being Resourceful, Being Curious, Being Collaborative, Being Resilient.
The children will be practising these skills in some of their maths lessons during this half term (and throughout the year).
There is a competition to design a character for each of these thinking skills. The children can either design one character or all four. If they have more than one idea, they could enter more than one suggestion.
Suggestions can be left in a box outside of Mrs Hunter’s classroom. We will be displaying some of the entries in the hall. The competition closes on 15th December. Winners to be announced in the Spring Term.
Attached to this page is a description of what each of the thinking skills mean. The file is called ‘habits of mind outline’.
We look forward to seeing all of the children’s wonderful creations. habits of mind outline
