Oyster Class have made a great start to 2018! In our 'Learning to Learn' sessions we have been talking about the meanings of inspirational quotes and how they might help us both in and out of school. It made for a very interesting discussion and we will display the quotes around our classroom.
Here are more of the quotes we discussed in class. These two in particular link to our work on Growth Mindsets and our attitudes to learning.
