Brain Awareness Day ~
SMARTS and Celebrating Achievements
On Friday year 5 took part in the second Brain Awareness Day of the year. This day was all about celebrating the different ways in which we are all SMART!
There are 9 smarts;
Everybody in the class has their specialisms and their strong points. We completed a number of activities that helped us see our 'cool', 'warm' and 'hot' spots. We then discussed as a class all the different talents we have and looked at how we could improve our 'cool' spots.
After break we completed an art activity to develop 2D/3D smart and it showed off the areas we are smart in. After lunch we had the Happy Puzzle Company in and completed a number of Mathematical puzzles in teams. This helped develop our Number Smart and People Smart skills. These puzzles were challenging but we kept trying and had a great sense of success when we achieved them!
We all had great day and learnt a lot about appreciating each others talents.
