Visit to the Planetarium
Year 6 went to Redruth School today to use their Planetarium. They loved it.
The Learning Dip
Wheal Busy were (deliberately) placed in the "learning dip" this afternoon when they were given some equipment and no instructions and asked to make a bulb light up. As well as tackling the challenge the children reflected on how they were feeling and how they got out of the dip. Good suggestions were: use what you already know; try a different way; work with your partner; stay calm and persevere.
Don't forget to brush your teeth
This morning, when you've finished your breakfast, don't forget to brush your teeth! What a fantastic reminder Wheal Busy have produced here with their app!
