According to the Oxford Dictionary.....the definition of perseverance is 'persistence in doing something despite difficulty.'
There is a time in everyone's life where we come across something that is difficult.....what do we do? Shall we give up? Or shall we persevere?
Luckily, with the fantastic attitude of the children in our class, they are all continuously persevering with a specific aspect of their learning that they find challenging!! As one of the values of our school, perseverance is embedded into the children to ensure they all try their best and don't give up! Well as matter of fact (not from the Oxford Dictionary again), but my children now refuse to give up, because they want to succeed....they want to get better....and they want to achieve!!!! How can I ask for any more than that???
Here are some examples of ways in which they children are and have been persevering with an aspect of their learning.......
I can't even begin to explain how proud I am of each and every child in my class! They see this is on a daily basis, because every single day they are striving to achieve something. More importantly, I see the look on their faces when they feel that proud, amazing moment of achievement after persevering!!
Well done everyone :)
Such a proud teacher :)
