‘The Dot'

This week in Year 4/5 we have been reading the story ‘The Dot’ and creating our own artistic dots. After having read the story we had some class discussions about having the self confidence to believe in ourselves and encouraging others to do so also. In this scenario, all we have to do is to ‘make a mark’ and we will become artists. We also discussed the fact that if we are ever finding something difficult we need to just give it a go and try our best, keep working hard or ask for help. As we like to say in Year 4/5, we may not have got it …YET, but if we keep going we will be able to do it one day. Keep believing in ourselves
