I have been extremely impressed with my Year 8/9 Nurture mathematicians this week as we have been getting our teeth into angles and bearings. Bearings in particular are very challenging, and all the learners have shown great resilience in taking on board new ideas which are at least a whole grade higher than the level they usually work at. They found it tricky, but were beaming with pride at how successful they were. When you find something challenging, but are willing to push yourself, that is where really good learning takes place. These pictures of Sam, Charliemai and Emily fully absorbed in their work, for me encapsulates the work ethic I have seen this week.
