A growth mindset from a GB athlete’s perspective., by Mrs Grice

Date: 12th Dec 2016 @ 11:36am

A growth mindset from a GB athlete’s perspective.

Jack Schofield visited Mossley Primary school to encourage our children to embrace a growth mindset.   This was Jack’s second visit to school to help motivate and inspire our children. During his presentation he explained the qualities and skills needed to adopt a growth mindset and the personal rewards when you do. His motto is “Hard work beats talent if talent doesn’t work hard”.

Jack represented GB this summer in the European and World Long distance triathlon Championships where he won silver and bronze medals. Jack talked through the ups and downs of his race days and how he had to go into the pit and find the growth mindset to pull himself out to enable him to succeed. His races last about 9 hours and the children were amazed to think that he raced for longer than a school day.

Jack’s visit was the introduction to our new Fabulous Friday’s at Mossley. On Fabulous Fridays we celebrate the children who have shown a growth mindset and reward them for their achievements, friendship qualities and citizenship. The children will enter the “Hall of Fame”.

The school council came up with the ideas and the Head boy and Head girl with their deputies visited A D Profile to meet a designer who helped them to design and produce our new certificates. Our thanks goes to them for giving the children such a lasting and rewarding experience.

Fabulous Fridays will also see some pupils being served their lunch sitting at a VIP table. These children will have been chosen by our Midday Assistants and kitchen staff for their good manners.

Year 3's trip to The Manchester Museum, by Mrs Ashford Eaton

Date: 16th Nov 2016 @ 3:24pm

Year 3 had a fantastic trip to The Manchester Museum this week to consolidate all of their Stone Age knowledge. The children were really excited to take part in a workshop where they became archaeologists and dug for evidence of the Stone Age; they compared different stones and ordered them according to their age. The children then solved the challenge to find the use of each Stone Age tool.

During our time at the museum we were able to walk around the different collections, which the children found fascinating. They particularly enjoyed looking at fossils and posing for a photo with Stan the T-Rex!

Skillful Stonehenge!, by Mrs Ashford Eaton

Date: 8th Nov 2016 @ 11:36am

Stonehenge came alive today when Year 3 had a ‘mammoth’ task on their hands.

1000 boxes were kindly donated by Mr Whitehead. The children used these to build their replica Stonehenge. They started the day by learning how to assemble the boxes by folding the flaps. Surprisingly it only took them 30 minutes to put them together. The next task was to move the boxes into the hall; the children created a human conveyor belt to transport the boxes, much like they might have done in the Stone Age. Next, the children were split into 2 groups and given time to come up with a building strategy. The children had 20 minutes to construct Stonehenge. They improved their team working and problem solving skills whilst thoroughly enjoying the activity.

 

All of the staff were amazed by their ability to work together as a cohesive unit and produce a fantastic example of Stonehenge. Well done Year 3!

Choir Recording Experience, by Miss Young

Date: 29th Oct 2016 @ 11:02pm

On Friday 21st October the choir were very lucky to have the experience of their singing being recorded! Staff from Orchard Recording Studios in Alsager visited the school and set up a mini studio in one of the classrooms. The choir were very excited and nervous at the same time! They recorded a range of songs that are to be sung on Friday 11th November at the United Reformed Church in Congleton to commemorate Remembrance Day. Please come and support us on the night and see just how fabulous they really are! CDs will also be sold of the songs that were recorded! All of the children did a fantastic job and I was very impressed with how they sounded on the day. They should all be unbelievably proud of themselves and what they have achieved!

Year 3 Stone Age D&T Day, by Miss Young

Date: 17th Oct 2016 @ 5:10pm

Year 3 have had a fantastic day taking part in different activities about the Stone Age. They started they day by thinking about Stone Age foods and where they might be collected from. Apples from the school grounds were then foraged and stewed for the children to use in their own fruit crumble which they thoroughly enjoyed making the topping for! We hope that you enjoy tasting them at home!

 

In the afternoon the children learnt all about Stone Henge and worked in groups to try and recreate the famous monument from pink wafer biscuits. They did a super job and had lots of fun! We used our problem solving skills and fantastic team work.

Year 3 Stone Age Caves!, by Mrs Ashford Eaton

Date: 28th Sep 2016 @ 9:27am

Year 3 have been very busy completing their learning logs over the last 2 weeks.

The children were asked to research the Stone Age and create a Stone Age scene. They were told they could be as creative as they liked!

I have to say, we were so impressed by the effort and the creations that many children clearly put into their learning log; and they look like they must have had a lot of fun as well!

Please take a look at the photos showing what the children think a Stone Age scene would look like.

Well done Year 3!
