As they approach their last term at Brabyns, Year 6 were asked what were their greatest achievements have been so far this year. Being able to reflect on their achievements can be a powerful learning activity and motivation booster. Framing setbacks as opportunities for learning is something we encourage learners to do but, unless we provide the children with the opportunities to reflect, they will not be able to do the reframing required.
This is what they replied:
Being involved in lots of sports matches (AH)
Bradshaw winning the termly house cup (JS)
Winning the house cross country (AR)
Gaining my pen and multiplication badges (AS)
Being successful in all my races at the swimming gala (DC)
Improving my handwriting (RD)
Receiving my pen and multiplication badges (BF)
Winning my times table badge (SS)
Skiing in France, on a red slope, for the first time (FAB)
Getting a one star badge skiing in France with school (TS)
Becoming much more confident (VR)
Achieving my gold star ski badge (JD)
Receiving my multiplication badge (AA)
Being awarded the courtesy cup (IT)
Passing my exams (IN)
Winning my multiplication badge (KH)
Gaining a place at Manchester High (SH)
Winning the slalom and getting the arrow on this year’s ski trip (BMC)
Getting my Multiplication badge (JB)
It is wonderful to see the range of achievements from one Year 6 to the next. At Brabyns, we aim to provide the children with as many opportunities as possible through our broad curriculum, allowing every child to flourish. We look forward to hearing about more achievements at the end of the Summer Term. Well done Year 6 on everything you have achieved so far.
